No Crotch padding, Heavy compared to other paintball pants(read below)
These are great pants to buy! I think of them as Dye C4 pants just not super expensive. I'm going to go into more detail about the strengths and weaknesses.
Knee Padding- These are great knee pads! I play front so I really like them because now I don't have to wear pads that are separate from the pants. These can get uncomfortable and slow you down. These knee pads are also great for back players. This is because they are pretty big pads and the big pads create more bounces when you get hit.
Pockets- It has two pockets for straight shot squeegees and to flex swab squeegee pockets. It also has two small pockets for allen wrenches. It also has two multi purpose pockets.
Good Looking- Not a huge factor but they look really good!
Comfortable- This is a huge factor. These pants are not just a shell which all other pants in its price category are. Behind the shell is a mesh fabric that is similar to the mesh athletic shorts fabric. This makes these pants extremely comfortable cause the outside fabric doesn't rub up against your skin.
Adjustable Waist- I am really happy the have this. These pants waist runs about a size up which is really good because then you can use these pants for a longer duration of time. So order you pant size that you are in now and just tighten the waist and you can use them for years to come.
Durability- I used these in a tourney and they look new after I cleaned them! I was very surprised in a good way. I have used other pants in this price category and they showed wear only after one time using them.
No crotch padding- This one is a problem for guys. But come on guys suck it up! If you get hit in the crotch deal with it. If it is a really big problem just wear a cup.
Weight- These pants are heavier than other pants in this price range. The reason why is that those pants are just a shell with no padding. The Jt Tournament pants have padding, a shell and a inner layer of fabric. But these pants really aren't heavy at all. They weigh about as much as blue jeans.
Buy These pants! These are the best valued paintball pants. Even if you have to spend 20 dollars more on these pants it is worth it because these pants are so much better.
Ok, i got these pants a little while ago, and so far i've used them in some backyard games, and used them at the Coram 2003 Big Game, playing in rought woods and speedball.
Durability - After about 9 hours of constants play at the big game, running through briars, sliding into bunkers at the speedball game, these pants were performing admirably. They showed no signs of wear and tear, and their rugged construction was very nice, especially with the built in kneepads.
Padding - The padding was great on these. Thoughtout the day, probably 1/5 of all shots to hit my legs actually broke thanks to their contruction. If i got stitched up the side by a string of paint, the shots hitting the pants would generally bounce while torso shots would break. Even in the shower, i noticed i had only one red mark, not even a welt, on my legs, even after a close shooting incident (a dead mans walk with me and 3 teammates vs. 20 red at about 5 feet).
Weight - Not really heavy at all. I've heard in the 2003 pants some people complained saying they were too heavy, and if you compare them to normal pants, they are a lot heavier. However, some of those claims were a little extravagant and i found this weight did nothing to slow me down, especially not for the benefits of wearing them.
Usefulness - Really, there just nice. The pockets dont let things fall out, the pants have a zipper in the back to keep you cool, and the squeegee holder holds a squeegee without letting it slip out. My 14" push squeegee didn't fall out the entire day. They also stayed comfortably the entire day. It was muggy and hot, but i didn't really notice the pants too much despite this, and in cooler conditions they stayed warm.
Availability/Price - You can find them pretty much anywhere, and there by a respectably company. Thats a plus in my book/
There $70 online (i got mine for $50), which is easily comparable to a lot more of some of the other prices companies have.
Another great product by JT, definately worth looking into if you want a pair of paintball pants.

I haven't found one yet.
The first time i played with the pants i gave them a beating..I didn't let up on them at all. They are super durable and have lots of goodsized pockets. It has a place for a squeege on either leg. Well ventilated..places to unzip the pant and cool yourself down..These pants only cost me 80$. I got them right when the 04's came out so i got a bit of a deal because the 04's go for 100CDN. They look really nice to, very sexy. Mine haven't tared yet and i played with them through a long summer and they still let up. Best pair of tourney pants out there and with the best price.
These pants are great..the price, the durability, the looks..everything about them is kickin'.

-Lotsa knee padding
-Good price compared to competition
-Venting on back
-A little hot
-Some say they're heavy
-No crotch padding
These pants are really great! They have so much padding on the knees that I felt comfortable kneeling on my driveway.They have two flex squeegee pockets on the sides which is a lot better than with my old regular pants. They have a lot of cargo pockets which are great for my pull squeegee and barrel cover. These pants also have zip open vents on the back to avoid hard surfaces that would otherwise be exposed. The stitching is also very high quality. They have bungi cords at the ankles that tighten and bunch up the pants so that i didnt have to have Mom hem them. My favorite thing about these pants other than knee padding, was the price. I got mine for $60, which was less than the Empire pants I was gonna get by $10.
These pants are warmer than Empire pants, but it really doesn't matter and also I live in New England, so its no big deal. Even for someone who lives in Florida it wouldn't be too bad. The main thing that people talk about when they say these pants aren't as good as they are is that they are heavy. Lets just say that if these pants are hard to lift, GET IN SHAPE!!!! Another thing is that the adjustable waist doesn't tighten much at all.
EDIT: O ya they don't have any crotch padding...
I give these pants an 8.5, rounded to 9. These pants are awesome
I would recomend these pants to everybody who wants paintball pants. They have the best value and I think that they are better than Empire pants.
9 out of 10

i love these pants. i bought them and tried them out the same day at an indoor field, in 30 degree celcius weather (you americans can work that one out yourselves), and was not hot at all. i simply tied the legs higher up thanks to the drawstrings, and played. you can slide easily into bunkers, and the knees will not rip and are very comfortable. also, they look amazing.
amazing pants. sorta pricey, but they'll last a LONG time and the quality of pant is well worth the cost. a must-have for indoor players.
Well Just bought a pair of these pants and used them for the first time yesterday. I was quite impressed initially with the price and style......But after using them just once I Ripped the crotch out and am quite disappointed in the quality of the stitching on these pants......(looks pretty messy)...w/ threads hanging everywhere. The material and padded knees look like good quality and they are a pretty styling pant ...but in paintball durability is key. You would figure the crotch to be double stitched or something?? Oh well no rips in the actual material ....I just need to get them sewn the right way.
My final conclusion is that these are a good quality pant for the price accept for the bad stitching. I'm not sure if im the only one with this problem or not but ripping them the first time you use them cant be a positive....thats why im giving these a 4.
I bought these for an awsome price off Ebay and i love them! I took these out to my teams field and everyone laughed at me cuz we were playing woodsball and i was not wearing cammo, but i got the last laugh because i was shot over 8 times that day and did not have one break! The knees are the best part o these pants, they make it easy to slide and dont hurt your knees like ordinary camo pants out of your closet. They have more pockets than you know what to do with and they have two slots for your squeege that fits it perfect and will not let it fall out when your running. The venting on these pants are awsome but if your just standing around under the sun they will get warm and make you sweat and stick to your legs.
Overall, I recommend these pants to anyone! Even for woodsball!

When i first decided to pick up some new pants, these were the first i saw, and immediatly ordered them simply because the were only 45$. When i recieved them, the first thing i noticed was how thick they were in the knees.
In the first game i played in with these, i recieved multiple bounces on the legs and then, when they finally did break on it, the impact was dulled, so i ended up being pulled for playing on. The only thing you have to adapt to is alway, i repeat ALWAYS check ANY impact. It may only have felt like a graze, but broke.
These pants are very durable and i have had absolutely no problems with them at all.

A bit heavy, but not bad
I got these pants as a present, and i dint know what to expect. I must say that I am very satisfied with them. The pants keep you refreshed, and not over heated. The knee padding goes right down to the shin.
The pants can be used for any level of play, and its really easy to move around it. For the price it is pretty good.
Overall, i think that you should purchase these pants, because they are comfortable!
