Bought these pants used for $30 in great shape. Knee pads make sliding SO much nicer (especially on mulch and all that crazy stuff fields use now instead of just grass..) Theres also a cup compartment in front that you can just stick a cup in instead of wearing a (IMO) uncomfortable jock strap. There are little pockets for squeegees located on the back and two zipper pockets on the sides. The pants are made of tough nylon yet extremely comfortable (wearing them right now actually). They are also light compared to jeans that would get much heavier as they absorb water. Only thing that caught me off guard was the size of the pants. I bought an XS thinking they'd have a nice fit since I am a 28 waist. Well, I put them on right when I got them and they fell down. Luckily they have straps to get a good fit. At least if I magically grow I'll still be able to wear these great pants.
Awesome pants. If you can still find these, you should definitely consider them. Also, you can use these pants for other things as well. For example, I use them while I [try to]breakdance haha.

Light and mesh ventialtions work like a charm and knee pads are great
Ive bought these pants two days ago and love it,its like 94 degrees here and ive been just wearing it around the house( no a/c) and it feels real good,the ventilation works so well ,i do love the knee pads,the butt pad, and the swab pocket ,this also has semi nutt protection which is key.

Raven Golves + Pads
The squeegee pocket
Ankle tightning string
Overall this is a really good pair of pants. It doesn't hurt to be hit in the knee. You can do all the sliding you want with these. Nice and comfortable in warm and cold weather. Also, very affordable. I have dove into mud and i have crawled in mud with these and they kept me clean and looking good. Also, the butt padding helps your harness stay up so it does not fall off. And the waist tightning straps hold very well. These are awesome.
Excellent pair of pants and if you have the money i highly suggest purchasing a pair

Some "man" padding
Thick Knee pads
Could have put on more man padding cause its not much.
Tight on teh waist
Got these for christmas. There pretty big, there realy baggy wich is a plus and well padded. the butix pad helps keep ur harness/belt pack on pretty good and keeps it from slipping or moving much. The knee pads are xtremly well padded and causes paintballs to bounce most of the time. Ive actualy never felt or noticed a shot from my knees to my ankles with these pants on. Only thing i didnt like is that theres only like 2 or 3 pockets, and they were a little tight on the waist and coulda used a thicker pad for that certain spot cause its not much.
Good pants, very well padded, good for sliding or we u wana do, cause bounces so ull stay in game longer.

LE Fusion Gold 50/50
Velocity Jr./ Gangsar Chip
PSI 48ci by 3000
Nice padding in the knees
VERY adjustable .
Noticed small rip were knee pad is connected to pant
I purchased these pants off of ANS Gear and got them in 4 days (good website). I ordered a size Large but i only wear a 34 waist. I had heard that the pants run small but they were a little to large for me to were comfortably i would recommend getting the size you were. I am very happy I ordered them tho, they have great knee padding and the materiel is very thick. There is no much padding in the sensitive area but that can be solved with some slider shorts. .
I would highly recommend looking into these pants ans purchasing them..

Jeans, big difference, fun sliding in these pants.
None as of now due to breakage. But soon to come Rex Type-R, 48/3k Psi tank, Evo II Hopper, and Evil Detonator Reg.
Really cheap! You can look everywhere but you can't find pants this cheap
Haven't really noticed a weakness yet
Great pants. Empire makes them. And from what I have seen with the Empire Grinds these pants should be awsome. Awsome pants, I have have so much fun just sliding with them in my house and backyard..lol.
Definitely get these pants people, top of the line pants for a low-quality price.
ANS Razor Ion
CP drop and on/off
Crossfire HPA tank
VL Evo II
Good padding. Stylish. Good construction.
My knees are above the padding.
I just got these pants in red today for Christmas. The first thing i noticed was that they are very nice looking. I put them on and they are just awesome. There's 2 buttons, a zipper, and a Velcro strip that keep them on. There are Velcro tabs on the side to adjust them to your waist. I also noticed two zipper pockets on the sides. There are also nylon cords at the bottom to tighten them to your legs. These pants are very adjustable. They also have great ventilation down the inside of the legs and on the sides (the screen-printed empire logo). And now for the most important part in paintball pants, the padding. The padding in these pants are pretty good. There is a very sturdy butt pad for sitting on or taking shots. The knees also have pretty good padding, but it could stand to be a little thicker. I was sliding on my tile all day and it never hurt then, but now my shins are a little sore. The only problem is that the legs are a little too long so the pads don't come all the way up to my knees. All in all this is a very good product from Empire.
The price is pretty good even though i didn't have to pay. The knees are pretty good but could use a little more padding. For that fact i'm gonna have to give these a nine. These are very good pants for a mid-level player and i would recommend them. I just have to see how they stand up to stress on the field.

These pants are extremely sick!!! My friend shot me point blank 3 times in the same spot in the knee and i really didn't fell any pain! These pants have awsome looks and are the pest padded i've ever seen! I got them in grey and that is a very cool color. if you have some money ('m not sure of the price) go out and buy a pair!!!
WGP 2004 Autocker
Phsycoballistics Drop Forward
6 piece Hammerhead barrel kit
Ricochet 2k hopper blue
47/3000 Empire tank with Redz Cover
CCM Pump Kit
Not many pockets
These pants were nice, I played all day and got shot 3 times in the pants and none busted. Not hot, and very very durable. I wish they had big pockets on the legs, but otherwise they are great. They didn't cost me much compared to what you can pay for pants.
I give em a 9, because other than pockets they meet my needs. Check em out if you can.
The Empire Invert line of pants is simply the best bang for your buck. These pants incorporate venting with comfort and style, to create one of the lightest pants on the market. While padding is minimal, it gets the job done. There is sufficient padding in the knee/lower leg area, and a bit of padding for your backside.
There is also a nice Empire Logo that grips your harness in place, combined with a good pod pack, bounce is virtually eliminated, creating a close, comfortable feel.
You can find incredibly good deals on these pants if you look hard enough. I got mine new for about 90$ Canadian.
All in all, this pant provides: durability, quality, venting and looks. I couldn't be happier with it.
