The Marauder Battle Pant might be considered a bastard child between a tournament pant and a BDU bottom. The Marauder is designed specifically for a serious woods ball player that would like the benefits of a tournament pant. I know what you're thinking, "You read my mind." Yea, we get that a lot.
- Special Ops tactical digi-camo pattern
- Knee padding for rolling and diving
- Squeegee pockets
- Rip-stop fabric for long lasting durabilty
The Special Ops Paintball Marauder Battle Pants are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
Ripstop woven material
Digital Camo pattern
To few pockets
Pockets to shallow
Waist adjuster is poor quality
One camo pattern available
I use these pants without mercy. I crawl, dive, roll, rush.. and so on in them. So far no real problem with them except for what pockets it does have are to shallow. Maybe some cargo style pockets would be a great upgrade for this item in the future. These pants are extremely light and durable. I love the look and feel. They are made from the well known RIPSTOP weave pattern. Have the AMAZING Digital Camo pattern which works perfectly in wooded areas. Can't wait till they release there other Digital Camo patterns. These pants are well priced.
Price - VERY COMPETITIVE
Look- same amazing digi camo as the jersey
Dispite its shortcomings I highly recommend this product, it CLEARLY beats out the competitors prices and there style.
Pockets are WAY to small and to few. Limited belt loops.
First thing I don't like about these pants are the pockets and lack there of. The pockets it does have are way to shallow and items easily fall out. It lacks cargo pockets. It only has three belt loops and the waist belt it comes with is only 1/2" so it's not the most comfortable and tends to bind up. The cammo pattern is good and the squee-gee pockets are an added plus over BDU type pants, But overall I would recommend BDU pants over these.
Due to the limited number of pockets, problems with the pockets that it comes with being to shallow, lack of belt loops, and to narrow of its internal waist belt I would not recommend this product, I feel you would be happier buying BDU pants that are in the same price range.
I got my Maraduer's for christmas and the first thing I noticed about them is that they are comfy! They have the spec ops logo build into the pattern so you don't need to worry about the big logo in the middle of tourney jerseys giving you away. These are perfect for hiding 5-10 feet away from opposing team memebers. I have done that on several occasions and all the opponents said to me after the game was "Wow I never saw you coming!".
There are some weaknesses however, the "ripstop" isn't ripstopping. I made one slide in these just the other day and the whole knee fabric ripped in half. The elastic belt is also very weak.
Overall I had a great time using these pants and love them to death. But if it really was ripstop then why do they ripp?
Riptear, lowprice (had a bridage member discount back then to), digicammo pattern
Limited pockets, side squeeze pocket hard to use, weak waist band
I got this as part of a full set, and while it looks and feels great, the poor waist band for tieing so it stays up is of rather poor quality. I also found the side pocket for a barrel squeeze to of poor size, and to tight. If ti was a bit losser or had a velcro cover to cap the pocket with that would be better.
Me and my teammate (he was in normal BDUs), ran through some palmento bushes once while wearing these. While he ripped his BDUs in a couple of places, my marauders stayed intact quite well. Which impressed both me and him regarding this, and we are both ex-military.
All in all I would recommend this product to the begining woodsball & scenario player. As it's cheep and has the digicammo design that works with most of the feilds out there.
Durable, Light, Great Looks, Straight Stick Holder, Price
Shallow Pockets, No Cargo Pockets, Crappy Belt System
I have been using these since the spring and they are way better than BDU's. They are lighter, more comfortable, and just plain blend in better. If you kneel a lot like I do, the knees dont seem to wash out very well. The knees could be reinforced better. (All they did was put another piece of fabric on the inside.)
Great for the rec player. Would try fusion if you were super serious.
I bought these pants, along with the Jersey, and they are both HUGE. The pants I ordered are a MD size 26-30" waste. I wear a 30" waste. The pant's waste was manageable, but the crotch comes between my knees and the legs are about 1/2 foot too long. MD is the smallest size they make.
Get this if you are a bigger player. They are well built and the pattern is great. Just order a few sizes too small.
