Padded...in the right places
Vented... in the right places
Weak stitching on the pod pocket
Bought 4 pairs for $35/pair!! Holy crap - cheap and durable. Knees extra padded - sliding without remorse!! Great fit - lots of room to stretch out or take up as needed. White trim stains pretty easy depending on what's being shot at you. Really easy to move in - not binding and nice padding on the back for your pack. For the money - very hard to beat. Probably better pants out there, but not for $35!!
Short on money or not ate up with the "name" thing - buy them... they are good enough for playing woods or speed... I might not buy them again, but they have worked well for the four of us so far...

slide like ice
Crotch padding Isn't that thick but gets the job done.
I ordered the pants online. And i have to say, I am very impressed. I bought the 2006 version. When i first got them, i put them on right away. The belt adjuster worked flawlessly.
It has great pockets, 2 zipper, 2 swab pockets. no more asking people on the field for a swab. On the back, there is the Diablo symbol with padding on it for better harness fitting. It works. The mesh that helps these pants breath are incredible. it feels like your wearing shorts.
Very happy with this product. I used to have D13 but had to return them. the only difference between heat and D13 is that D13 has more padding on knees and crotch area.

I bought these last summer along with the jersey and gloves. I had only 2 pods and no pack and i realized that these pants had pod holders on the sides. I began using them and they were great for rec.. but the pods fell out when i ran too fast. I also noticed the knee's were very durable, but very hard to clean.
All in all these pants are good for younger players that consist of a lower budget.

Short padding for the package
When i first go these pants all i saw was the kneww padding and only though "wow". the knees have great coverage and nice thick padding, but in places like between the legs at the zipper/velcro part there's very scarce padding. the actual padding is not very long at all, so i would recommenyd wearing some type of slider shorts under these. there are two pod pockets one these pants, one to each side. if you know that you're playingna course where you dont need to slide then you might want to keep full pods in them. if you are playing foward or on a wet course then do NOT, i repeat do NOT pu pods in these pockets. they will break and leave you with a pocket of paint, a broken pod, and a hurting leg where the landing was.
If you need a nie pair of affordable pants, these are perfect for you. with any extra money you save but slider shorts becuase they are set perfectly with these pants. they deserve a 9 other than a 10 cuz of the "sweet spot" padding
