The 2006 Proto pant is built to perform, built to look good and built to last. Adjustable waist with velcro closures makes a perfect fit every time, while the inner leg venting will keep you cool under fire. The lightweight design allows you to be comfortable, while the super-strong construction will hold up to aggressive play. Reinforced padded knee panels give protection against knee impacts and vented cargo pockets allow you to carry what you need. The combination zipper and button crotch panel is padded and helps protect what's important. The sublimated paneling on the sides keeps bright and clean after washing. Leg piping and PU logos finish this pant off with a cool look and great style.
The Proto 06 Proto Pants are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.

Comfortable, Price, Pod Holder, Looks
Knee padding isn't the best
I was so excited when i got the pants from the local proshop, and they were great! They were so comfortable i was walking around my house all day with them. When I finaly got a chance to play with them they were great. However, I would recomend buying some knee pads with them so u don't mess up you're knees.
Overall these pants are great, HIGHLY recomended too everybody. 10/10
Comfortable, good ventilation, bounces, pod holder, padding where its needed, looks cool.
Not enough padding in knees... thats about it
i got these for a present and only used them once so far but they are really amazing. to start they're really comfortable and fit well. one thing i noticed is that i got several bounces off the knee area. there is padding in the spot where its needed which is a VERY good thing. they have a pod holder for that ensurance pod so you dont have to carry a whole pack. nice padding for a harness if you use one.ventalation is great! its right on the inside of you legs and if feels good when you run... it makes you want to get up and go more often instead of just sitting there.finally they look really cool and are sold for a reasonable price.
Overall its a great product and worth the money for sure! i recommend these pants for any rec player even for woodball because they have olive color too. they arent as expencive as some other products but just as good if not better!

I bought these pants because I was tired of using camo pants for three years. These pants are really nice, and a big step up from camo pants... they have really nice ventliation on hot days, and they are good for chilly days too. the padding is really good for my bad knees for when i slide, the pants are very durable and should last for a long time. the only thing I have not used is the elastic bands for the pod, but i will update later....

great padding (especially in weak spot)
A rubber logo on knees makes it hard to slide on your knees no bother
The proto pants are great I mean its really cheap and they are really durable to me I think that they are dye C6 pants but better ventalation, it keeps the cool air in and the hot air out and why go spend 137$ on dye pants when you can by these proto pants for cheaper, the only difference between proto pants and dye pants is that the proto has better ventalation
get these pants they are the best pants for the price, why get dye C6 when you can get the same thing but with better ventalation for a lot cheaper and if you are on a budget these are the pants for you

Cool Design, Padding in key area, LOTS OF VENTING
More padding needed in knees, sizes are off by a little
These pants are awesome. Only problem I should say is that Im a size 32 waist and I bought the medium size which runs from 32-36 I believe. The waist seems a little loose to me. I think its because PROTO stitched the adjustable waist bands unlike the Dye Hybrids which fit me nice and tight. Another problem and only minor is that it needs a little more padding in the knees. Wouldnt hurt. But if you wanted all that you might as well get teh C6 or something like that. Onto the review....
...I have to say these pants can take a beating. Even though there is some padding on the knees, I still felt comfortable when I kneeled down or even crawled in the snake. No nasty scuff marks or anything. So thumbs up for that. Also there are only 4 pockets. I dont know why you need pockets (besides to hold your cash) but they always stayed shut. I took some nasty falls, dives, shots, you name it and they remained closed and my money and ID never left my side. Also, the venting on these pants are great. It was warm in Chicago and it kept me cool the entire day. And when a breeze came in, you felt all nice and refresh in the legs.
Oh and just to mention. It haves crotch protection. Didnt think it was necessary but when someone is only 8 feet from you and shoots for shots in the lower body region, and 3 of them happen to be on the crotch vicinity....Thank God they are still attached to me. Worked like a charm.
Great pair of pants. They can take a beating. Venting is great. Crotch paddding really does work. Needs more knee padding in my opinion. I give this a 10
Let me start off by saying these pants look really good, i mean they are really nice looking.Padding is a must, and i thank proto for putting pads were needed, and...well some places not needed, lots of padding here.These pants vent beautifly, not a sweat drop in site.These pants are durable like nothing ive seen before. Its perfect.
These pants are super light and they will not rip very easly.
I got these pants along with and 06 Jersey for 100 bucks, but im not sure why he mad that deal with me. o well.
14" Dye UL
max-flo micro (68/4500)

single pod holder
Haven't really found any
first of all, these pants are SUPER light....if you're a front player u really need these pants because u don't haveto carry all that extra weight. the venting is unbelieveable...keeps you cool no matter what (big plus for me b/c i run alot). also, the padding is pretty good...croch, and knees. i like the fact that proto incorperated a single pod holder on the back, i use this when i have practices when u don't necessarily need to wear the full harness...big plus i think!
if u're looking for quality and bang for the buck pants....get these proto 06s...they're super light, have lots of venting. these are really good quality pants b/c it's proto (made by Dye)...and we all know how good dye products are!!!

padded knees and crotch
just about everything
These are the best pair of pants i've ever played in, best looking pair too. they have a good amount of padding on the knees and where it really counts. you can easily slide on a speedball court with these pants.
these pants have awesome big pockets too for putting whatever you want in them
another cool addition on these pants is the pod loop.
I usually don't use that much paint during a speedball game, so the pod loop saves me the hassle of having to carry my whole pod pack around
Best Pants ever made so far. Buy them.

A Little Tight Around the Thighs
I Bought These pant and I love them I honestly do its just that every time i try to get into a croutch position They are really tight around my inner thigh. Im hoping that washing them will help to break them in so they are not so tight any more but who knows. ther than that these pants are awesome they are very nice.
Buy these pants you'll love them. I'm giving them a nine because of the thigh problem.
Well i got theseand i like them. The knee pads are nice. They keep me cool when i play. My podpack doesnt slid around with these on because of the thing on the back. Theyre very nice pants to have im happy. Could have used thick pads like dye pants but they are great for the price (half the cost of c6's)
