Play in comfort and style with these C5 pants from Dye. It might seem like overkill for a pair of pants to have as many features as the C5 pant, but DYE has never been accused of doing just enough to get by. We are big on overachieving. Built from the highest quality materials and reinforced in all the right places, the C5 pant is designed to last. We go ever further by introducing our hyper-flex yoke. A unique design that allows the pant to literally flex while bending and crouching. With over 300 square inches of venting, the C5 pant has the most circulation to date. It's all about maximum performance and DYE can help you achieve that. These pants truly are "Designed for the Art Of Winning".
The Dye C5 Pants are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
1. Tippmann Custom Pro with R/T, Viewloader eVLution II, '16 CP barrel, 48ci 3000psi pure energy tank.
2. Spyder Pilot, Viewloader eVLuition ll, '12 "X" barrel, 48ci 3000psi pure energy tank.
4. Pro's might notice you
5 Looks good
1. Hot playin in them
2. Pricey unless bought on ebay
3. Only 2 pockets
I got this for christmas, along with a Dye '03 arena jersey, and went to play with them at my local field the folllowing weekend. It was very comfy, and i could slide with ease when i was playing. For once, all the pro players there actually seemed to notice me since i was wearing them, and finally noticed how good i was, and invited me over for practice the next month. i mean, WOW! what pants can make your dream come true in one day? The only downsides in my opinon was that there was only 2 pockets (people say theres back pockets, but i cant find them), and got hot when playing a long time in them. but hey, nothings perfect. Other then that, its Awsome in my opinion.
If you want to get into speedball, or Pro paintball, i highly recommend this great product.

Super Comfy, Well Padded, Very Well Constructed
These pants were great. They are super comfy, very well constructed, well padded, and extremely well designed. They fit just right and the padding on the legs is just right. I have to say this was one of the best pants i had ever owned. They cleaned up very well after every day of play.
None, these are my first set of real paintball pants
1. Excelent knee padding, enough to slide all day without pain. A major plus.
2. Padded crotch, I have not tested this in a live area but it looks like it will do its job very well.
3. venting, when you move around you can feel the pants breathing, this is really nice on long and hot days.
4. This material allows you to slide very well, it does not constrict movement.
5. These are very comfortable, moreso than other pants that feel stiff in the knees.
1. These are rather expensive for a set of pants, but well worth it.
I really like them, so will you. They are made by Dye so you know they are of the highest quality.
I have had these pants for about 6 month now and I love 'm! The knee padding is very durable and roomy. When wearing knee padding you'll still have lots of room. The venting is also very good. In the summer period it was like 80 degrees and my legs weren't getting steamed or anything. Another feature I like is the inner area of the pants. It feels very compfy. There is only one thing that I didn't like. It has not belt loops so you'll only have the velcro adjustable straps.
uhh none really just my snowboarding pants which has no comparison
Smart Parts Ion, Halo TSA, 16" Powerlyte Scepter Barrel Kit, Pure Energy 3000 PSI 48CI nitro tank, and a Dead On Paintball dropforward
Durability, breathable, butt pad, adjustable, and looks i guess, and padding.
Harder to find now.
Legs lower part of the legs are kind of uncomfortable.
You can feel and see the durability in these pants.
The sides have mesh so you wont get so hot.
On your butt there is a grippy thing to stop your pod pack to slide down.
They come in sizes from like 24-3842 i think correct me if im wrong, and the go up every two sizes so it is easy to find a pair that will fit you.
Dye did a very good job designing these pants, they have a bunch of pockets and hold up very well.
Finally the padding on these pants will defiantly block out a lot of the impact of getting hit and help reduce the the impact of sliding as well.
I am not a big fan of the price on paintball stuff, and $120 is a lot but it is well worth it.
I am glad i waited for the price of these pants to drop, but now they are harder to find.
Finally the lower part of my pants give me some irritation but i think it is just the seems and not much more
Over all i would recommend these pants to anyone that is fully grown or is getting close to it because these pants are amazing but there is no since in spending 150 bucks on pants your just gonna grow out of later.

Light comfortable padding makes balls bounce
There isnt enough testical protection but there still is
These pants are great. They are so comfortable. When ever I where them, it feels like im wearing shorts. They have special ventalation so you can feel the breeze go into the pants. The padding makes balls bounce. When you look at them, they look so sexy. get the pants. they rock.

Wow these pants are incredible. I've never purchased paintball pants before, due to the price, and I had previously thought that they were a waste of money. However, I've been playing consistently since June and play about 4 times a month, so I decided to check into what this whole "Dye C5 Gear" hype was all about. Needless to say I'm impressed. On hot days I'm cool (great ventilation), on cold days I'm warm, and on everyday I'm always protected from painful hits. I have not had these for a long time so I probably shouldn't comment on durability yet but so far they seem great! My favorite feature about the C5s is the knee protection. I don't have to wear any constricting knee pads to be able to slide without irritation, and the built-in pads don't feel cumbersome or bulky. I would prefer 2 more large pockets in the front but it's not a neccessity. The two pockets in the back are useless. Maybe if you work a back standup for most of the game you could but pods in those pockets but other than that I don't see the point. On the upper rear of the pants there is some kind of gel stuff with the Dye logo on it. The gel material prevents your harness from shaking or moving, which is a very nice, and creative, feature.
Buy them only if you are a very serious paintball player and play constantly, otherwise it would be a waste of money. They work well, but it's not worth it to spend 135 dollars on something you use like 12 times a year.

Padded everywhere, nice looking, great ventilation
Velcro wears out sometimes
These pants are amazing. They are well padded and are very durable. I have yet to see any serious problems with them and they work like a dream. The ventilation is great but they get kinda hot if u sit still in them if u move though its like personal air conditioning. The only downside is that the Velcro wears out kinda fast but that's not really a serious problem.
Heavy duty, ventillated, well padded, DYE tack for your harness.
These pants are made of a super heavy duty material with good stitching and are very durable. The material these are made of feels a lot heavier and stronger than that of other pants in comparison. The knee and crotch padding is also a lot thicker in the c5's than I have noticed when comparing them to other pants. (I know because I had a chance to do so @ the NPPL Super 7 event in Denver this year where all of the vendors were set up side by side and had most of their products there). The c5's also have a velcro adjustable waist in them with the DYE tack on the back to ensure that your harness won't slide around on you, I haven't had any trouble with that thus far with these pants. It would have been nice if they could have put a little elastic in the squeegee holders on either leg of the pands, but that really isn't a big deal, the squeegee/swabs still fit fine. Other than the excellent padding and heavy duty material, the other major thing these pants have going for them is the ventillation. They are vented all along the inner part of the legs and crotch, and there is a mesh liner inside to keep the heavy duty material from chaffing your legs as well as keeping them ventillated. These are very nice pants and would suggest them to anyone who could afford them.
In conclusion, these pants are heavy duty, well ventillated and well padded. With these pants you will definately be getting what you pay for, so if you want less in a pair of paintball pants, then spend less and get something else, but if you want the best pants that will ensure your comfort during play with out the worry of having to get another pair because you played all out and tore your pants, then get the c5's.
Look great, super comfortable, light and breathable, durable.
Price (but worth it).
I love these pants. The inner lineing is awesome. The best thing about these pants is that they are not restricting. You have full motion with nothing pulling, pinching, or smashing anything. You can run, slide, crouch with no hang ups. The light and durable material is another plus. You can't beat the looks of the C5's, no matter what anyone tells you, these pants are the best!
Pay the money and get the pants, you'll love them too.
