I recieved these pants on sale from actionvillage. I got to test these for the first time when i went to team practice last sunday. I had a great experience with these pants. The knee padding is great (for kneeling and sliding), and the ventilation is a big +. The other main advantage of these pants is the bounces you get off of them. I swear i had my leg completely exposed and it got shot up really bad, i was thinking "man im so gonna be out", but i looked down and checked, and I was clean. these are great pants
These are professional grade pants and you should buy them.
appearance (there agg you could say)
Well basicly these things are amazingly confortable i wear them around the house sometimes...hey its almost better then being naked...though that would be a stretch ...these pants have breathable material in the right spots, great pocket room, and amazing padding! its the new paintball year and new products are coming out by every company so you should be able to pick these bad boys up uber cheap...so do it!
They're gunna be a year old in 07 so pick um up cheap!

WAAAY better than those cheap but expensive Contact Pants.
No problems whatsoever.
I've bought both the 06' Empire Contact Pants and React Pants just so I could compare the two. The Contact has a lot of padding, but they're all thin. With the React, I don't need my knee pads on grassy fields. The knee padding is excellent and durable. The ventilation is great, especially on windy dayz. Good deep pockets so your battle swab doesn't fall out. It has zippers so you don't lose your barral condom. It's baggier, lighter, and cheaper (because Infamous plays with Contact) than the Contact.
If you like Empire Gear, this is the pants to get! It's stylish and has a great performance rate.
Nothing really....dye c6 come close to being as good as them but these things kick ass.

Kneepads, comfort, i get alot of bounes playing stand up can.
The way the sizes work..i am tiny and bought xs...should have bought small.
I bought these pants in august and i immediatly loved them. the kneepads are seriously the best. i dont even have to use my proto kneepads they are so good. i played recently and as my teamates and I were all setting up at the deadbox to start, one of them pulled the trigger to make sure there gun worked...i didnt feel a thing and it hit my kneepad. you can make them tighter and looser 3 different ways i believe. they have 2 straps on the left and right where you can pull towards the back where a long strip of velcro(dont think i spelt right)is, so you can easily make them tighter. loosening them there isnt much you can do. they are pretty light but i dont have a problem with weight anyways. i get alot of bounces if i get shot at running towars the 30 or 50. has a special pocket for squeeges...the reds battle squeege that folds up fits very well in this pocket( pocket on both sides). has two pockets w/ zippers so you dont lose your wallet and stuff like that.
comfort-comfortable if you buy the right size...if you wear an xs buy a small...so pretty much buy a size larger than you normally where. especially where you can tighten them anyways. you can also tighten the ver bottom of the pants if you are short like me. it is very convinient. if you are looking for a great pant, get these they can almost be considered the best pant out there.( in my opinion)
They are great pants...i can not count how many times i have stayed in a game because i get bounces when i run.
Good fit,zippers are amazing, never come off, comfy.
I havnt noticed any at the moment.
I love these pants i was going to get the grind which look like very good pants but i got the reacts for a good price(they were brand new) the pockets are zippers so nothing comes out, the padding is very good (you can slide with these without hurting your knees)
I love these pants and im probably going to keep them for a while because they are so comfortable.
These pants are very durable. The knee pads are huge and work great. They do only have Two zipper pockets but there are also pockets on each leg for your squeegee. They really do what they are made to do. The air venting works well also! The cost me around $65.00 on ebay and I was not disapppointed.
Get them while they are on sale at e bay there SWEET!!!

just flat out great pants...and relatively cheap too a perfect pick up for the semi-pro to serious player. Since all my gear is black to red the pants along with the empire jersey and black/red e-vent mask just makes u look SO sick...cant really think of a reason to not buy them.

I ordered these pants from my local pro shop and the owner (great guy) charged me $80 for these pants and an 06 Empire Action Pack, so I paid less than most people would. The knees are really padded. You could slide on rocks and probably still wouldn't feel anything. The little tag that comes on the pants says the knees are kevlar, but the Empire website says 1680 something, but it doesn't say kevlar, so I don't know what they are. They definently have more padding than one of my teammates' JT Team Pants and more than another one of my teammates' Empire Invert Pants. They have a lot of features on them that you'll say, "Dang that's tight." Like two squegee/pod pockets on the sides and 4-way elastic on the back. They also are cool when you're wearing them and not burning up like many pants. I'm about 6' 1" with a 32 inch waist, so I got some larges and they fit me great. There is a lot of room in the waist for adjustment and you can also shorten them up in the legs.
These are great pants, definently one of the more stylish pants and feel great when you're wearing them around or sliding in them. They are also pretty lightweight but offer a lot of protection in the knees and such. I probably wouldn't have spent MSRP on these pants, because I would never pay MSRP for any paintball pants. I think they're much too expensive. I went in to the shop and the guy was sold out of Inverts so he sold me some Reacts for less than the Inverts and gave me a 4+5 Action Pack. I'd call that a good deal. After playing with them and wearing them for a while though, I just might've paid MSRP for 'em. I reccomend them over any other pants on the market right now. They match my blue/black Dye C5 jersey perfectly. Buy them. You won't regret it.
