Review: Got these pants b/c I love the quality and how well I can slide on them. Very great quality and all. Padded good and all. Love them. I just hate that rubber emblem on the knee pad b/c it really screws you up on slides.... it got caught in the ground and I tumbled and looked like an idiot....
Conclusion: Yea I recommend it. Just that thing on the knee kills it...

Review: A bit of background here, I am a small person that normally takes a size 30 but after joining a new new team and in need of a new pair of pants in a rush I went to the local store and all they had were these in large. I was hesitant but i figured i could have them adjusted if I had to since I needed them quick I bought them. I learned that these are EXTREMELY adjustable, due to a piece of Velcro on the back(probably not made for this purpose) I was able to adjust all the way down to a 30 from a 36. I was also extremely happy that I got these over others that I was planning on getting.

Weight - Although these aren't the lightest pants ever they are very light for the amount of padding that they have. As a front player that plays pump one of the most important things to me is that the pants be light enough that i can still get some good speed without much added weight, these allow that. They allow full movement and after a while you don't even notice the difference in weight, they are a great design.

Padding - Another feature that is important for any paintballer is padding. The padding in these pants is great, there is a large amount of padding in the appropriate places that it causes bounce and allows you to slide freely. I tested this the other night playing in the woods I dove and slid into my bunker on rock hard ground without feeling a thing. I have also had many bounces off these pants.

Quality - The Pants are very well made, the material used is very thick and durable and the stitching seems very tight and well done. The only small place that there is a problem is a few loose/ripped stitches on the right pockets zipper.

Airflow - With the mesh on the inside of the legs and the various other features these pants are very breathable. Playing in extreme humidity/heat this week the pants have handled themselves great, they keep you nice and cool with nice airflow.

Pockets - Here is the one spot I'm a little unsure on, there's 2 pockets and 2 squeegee/swab pockets. The pockets that are there are very deep but they are in an awkward position. They are low on the legs and they finish just above the kneepad and it would be nice to have some back pockets

Knee and Hip pads - Although I've already covered padding I do believe the knee and hip pads deserve their own section. When i slide I'm landing hard on my knees or my hips and with these pads I didn't feel a thing. The pads are nice and light but they provide more than enough padding for what they're meant for, you can slide in hard and they absorb the impact very well.
Conclusion: These pants are very well made and I am extremely happy I ended up buying them, for the price, these carry an amazing value. As a front player and pumper these pants are perfect for me with their padding, lightness and the bounces they get.

Review: When I got these pants I was excited. When I got home and immediately put them on, the great thing was they weren't stiff I didn't really have to work them in. The look lof these pants is so awesome, the padded knee help so much. I always end up banging my knees up when I'm playing, but if these that problem is gone. The price is not to bad got mine for 149.99 can from ( Badlands Paintball). TO be honest I really don't see the difference between the contact pants and the react pants. I try ed both on, they felt the same, but with the contact pants you had to work them in at first. The contact pants also have a bit more padding, but hey if you start putting tons of padding on then wheres the fun you won't even feel it. So if you are looking at the contact pants, I suggest getting the react pants, save some money. These are great pants I would recommend them to anyone. Also the pants looks nuts in red ( I got red).
Conclusion: All around great pants, recommend them to anyone.
