The Smokin' Paintball Outlast Pants are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
Just like all paintball pants little short on some people, and little over priced.
well, I got my pair a long time ago and when they first came out they were the most comftorble pair on the market. Now they are just the same as other pants out there, except they are the most comftarble when you aren't wearing any underwear. And they will take a beating.
Good pants, my pants usually only last a year. So they have lasted me 2 seasons, and now I need a new pair,but they have been worth the money.

Poor stitching, shape and cut of leg, Kneepad pcokets too low
These pants were very reasonably priced at $50. When I received them they looked good, though they were a little shinier than in the pictures. They have very durable knees, since the knee part is covered with a hemp patch. The patch forms a pocket where you can slide kneepads in. The idea is that they stay in place near your knees, unfortunately this is not the case. When i kneel or dive, the kneepads move off to the side so that my knees are against the dirt.
Also, the stitching is very poor. From what I hear, this is a common problem. When I wash the pants, tons of thread comes loose and I usually end up cutting about 50 loose thread ends off. The pants haven't come apart yet, despite this, which impresses me.
The shape of the pants make them look like parachutes when you wear them. The upper leg is very wide, which is fine. But they taper way too much. At the ankle they're very tight. It's not too tight to play in, it just looks stupid. For $50, one would hope that the designers could make something a little more stylish.
I don't recommend these pants. They are poorly designed and constructed. Go with something well-known, like Dye or Redz.
to pricey? small squeegee pocket that only fits battle swabs
For a back player like myself I find these pants very comfortable. Their selection of "Big Guy" sizes sold me on these pants, In the past I had allways had trouble finding pants that were both comfotable and fit well. While I do not slide as much as some front players do I have found they hold up very well thus far (apx. 12 uses). The hemp material the pants are made out allow for an INCREADABLE air flow! I played the other day and it was 85 out and it felt like i had shorts on! Very impresive
Amazing pants, I love them to death, might just start wearing them everyday, A must for the bigger guys out there and strongly recomended for all players.
First off, I bought the red and black pants because they were on sale. There was a reason because these were freakin ugly. People started calling me Red Pants (I guess that's a bad thing.) The pants are beathable and light so no issues in the hot temperatures.
What I didn't like about the pants is that after 6 wears the knees developed a hole that then tore all the way across the knees. I had to sew on a piece of ballistic nylon to patch them up which makes me look like a homeless person. Also, there is a noticeable lack of pockets and no secure pocket - for keys and money. They are a bit budget when comparing them to other, similarly priced, pants on the market. I would go with the Dye Pants before this garbage.
Also - I was psyched on the idea of built in knee pads but in use they slide all over the place and actually screwed up my knee on a routine slide. With slip on kneepads (dye, empire, redz) they stay put and add much more protection.
In theory = great pants. Real world use = poo poo
Buy something else.

Light weight, strong knee material.
These pants are great, they're light weight, sturdy and fit well. There's not a lot to really drone on and on about, they're pants after all.
However, I've only worn them 4 times and have developed a small hole in the in the back of the pants where one of the pockets stitches into the 'butt'. Smokin' of course wants to see the pants, but wont guarantee me a new pair even though these have been worn 4 times since I recieved them for Christmas. So do I spend my money sending the pants off to have them send me the same pair back possibly?
Great pants, but I can't get a straight answer out of them wether or not my 2 month old pants will get replaced.
Officially, these pants are 60% polyester and 40% hemp. The hemp makes up most of the front and sides of the pants and it is amazingly durable, so it is sure to last through many, many dives and slides.
The kneepads slide into pockets built into the pants, so there are no straps to make you uncomfortable. In case you were wondering, even though the kneepads are free-floating, they are always right where you want them to be when your knee hits the ground, I never had a problem with the kneepads sliding out of position.
There are several pockets, including a small pocket for your squeegee, and they adjust very well with velcro on both sides of the waist. The velcro is very well done so you get the same good fit at the full range of sizes, with no bunching up of the waist if they are a little too big.
Finally, these pants breathe very well and are very comfortable for a long day of play.
These pants are pretty scarce, and may be a bit hard to find unless you og to the manufacturer's website, but they are certainly worth the search!
These pants will "outlast" all other paintball pants on the market. They may be a little high-priced, but you'll more than make up for it when you don't have to buy a new pair after tearing your JT's after a couple of weeks. If you want a great pair of pants that will last a long time, then these are the pants for you.
I give it a 9 instead of a 10 because of the price, but I still think these pants are worth every penny.
NW drop forward
center flag high pressure
Very breathable,awesome knee pads that dont cut in,velcro waist band
These pants are a little expensive. But still worth the 85 dollars with knee pads. Most comfortable pants you will find. Hemp front is very tough material. The knee pads you dont have to remove to wash them either. They also deflect incoming fire very well.
