Strengths: LOTS (see review).
Weaknesses: Look cool but you cant see that when your wearing pants.
Review: These pads are great. i have been sliding at least a hundred times a week for the last 3 months (i do a lot of sliding practice and drills) and they shot little to no signs of wear and tear. they look super kool and go with my black and red outfit but when you have pants on you cant see that. so i think they wasted mney and effort on the unnecessarily secksy design. which in turn jacks up the price or us. but they are totally worth it! i will never need another pair of pads again (til i grow out of em, then ill just buy some more ventz!). also they are soft and ventilated. i can bounces off of them all the time.
Conclusion: Get them they rule.

Strengths: Pads will stay put.
pads are light, but think enough to provide protection
Weaknesses: Tight as hell!

Review: Very good product, although i think my leg mussel are too big for the pads. they fit length wise, but not width wise. i give them a 10 even though they cut off my blood circulation. then again.... all pads do this in a similar way.

Products Used:
JT Pads, which were no where near as good as these.
Marker Setup: I shoot a 2K2, Texas Storm and Ripper 2 Intimidators. I run a Halo or an Empire with a PMI Pure Energy Tank.
Strengths: Durable, lightweight, snug, form fitting.
Weaknesses: Cost is a bit high.
Review: I LOVED these pads. I had the JT's before this and they ripped out along the spandex part. The JT's also had a tendency to slip and fall down off my knees while I was running. I'm 6'3" and have huge legs but these guys fit on like a glove. They cover my knees and shins well, an important consideration for me considering I've already had one knee reconstruction. When they get wet from perspiration they can be a bit hard to get off but I'll take that over slipping all the time. I also like the extra bit of elastic in the middle behind the knee as this helps keep the pads on securely. The JT's and dye's don't have this.
Conclusion: A solid product. It's all I'll use.

Products Used:
None...Cept my empire pants....
Marker Setup: Impulse pretty much stock with a new trigger and a ANS Jackhammer II and a halob
Strengths: Very good looking as all empire things are.
Weaknesses: Don't know.
Review: Really the style of these are great...

While I haven't played paintball in them yet some test slides on my lawn felt great with no movement at all.

One thing you need to relise about these is that they nearly cover your whole leg... mid thigh to your ankle. The extra coverage on them is nice to have as I have cut my shins at my local field before.. besides I got a friend to shoot my shins after I got them from various distances and I took quite a few bounces... around 80% from 30 feet, probally 55% from 15 feet and of course it drops dramatically from there.... but if your less than 10 feet away from some one and you take a hit it is gonna break.
Conclusion: Nice pads... get them more protection than the dye pads.

Strengths: Soft, Foam, looks kool, Empire is a good company and moving up.
Weaknesses: poor quality, aweful sizes, don't do what they are suppose to, protect your body.
Review: Im 6"3' about 180. Better then average build from crew everyday. I ordered these L-XL. Too big, elastic went all the way up to top of my thigh and down to my ankle. as well as from my wrist up over my bisept, which was a big problem cause if i was in a tense situtation adn my arm was flexing the spandex would put more stain on my arm and casue my fingers to not walk the trigger as easily casue of discomfort. Cut off circulation, from the elastic, but the pads could spin and slide all over my leg. I tried to just slide once in my room, and the pads slipped past my knees and i ende up bruising my legs. They offer a S-M, was going to trade in for them, these sizes are made for 8 year old girls, I mean there was no way they could fit over my wrist or ankle. The quality of the pads were bad, as soon as i took them out of hte box there were spots were the seems were comming up done slightly alread, so if they did work it would only take 1 days worth to shred them.

I got these before i joined my college's paintball team. Thought for speedball padding on the knees would make life after paintball good. Wrong idea, found out everyone on my team mainly relied on there pants with built in padding to keep them safe. One kid had pads and they were JT, double the quality of empire pads, good sizes and stay in place. Didnt cause him to "stick" to the floor when sliding either, very happy with his investment.
Conclusion: For me i invested in a pair of paintball pants. If u are paying around 40 for a pair of knee pads, why not caugh up another 30 for a full pair of pants that can offer u more versatility and protection, while not feeling like ur joints are loosing circulation. Even if u feel pads are the way to go, empire has a long way to go before anyone should invest in there pads, unless u can somehow fit into exremely small pads or can deal with no circulatio nad flimsy coverage.

Go full pants or JT pads

Give it a 3 since they were pads, look nice, and seemed at first like they were gonna work. Also since they werent too expensive
