The Dye Tactical pants could be pretty good too. http://www.ansgear.c...nts_s/3753.htm.
and otherwise there is always the Valken V-Tac pants. http://www.ansgear.c...ants_s/1851.htm
It really depends on what your preference goes to. Both normal paintball pants and Camo pants can work in both scenario's. It just depends on what your style is I guess.
As for Orange Chicken, He aint't doing nothing wrong. I heard good things about the disruptive pants and I ordered me a pair. (I wonder how long it takes before they ship.. its been a week now lol)

Pants don't have to be camo to be good for wooodsball. Stick to darker colors like grey or black and you will be just fine. The main thing you want to avoid is having some bright color being noticed while you are sneaking around in the woods.
You can also take a look at the JT Team Pants. They run about $50 and have been great pants since 2007. Link to pants.

Wait, what? So paintballers are like the T-rex from Jurassic Park? We only see what moves and it doesn't matter if there is a big patch of bright orange sitting next to a tree?
Hunters wear bright orange in order to be seen by other hunters in the woods.

While it is indeed easier to spot a moving player than a non moving player, wearing darker colors still makes a considerable difference when it comes to concealment. Especially if you are standing still. I can be standing still like a statue, but someone notices my bright pink pants and there goes the whole purpose of people hiding in woodsball in the first place.
While being perfectly still will greatly factor into if people notice your presence or not, you must admit that wearing darker colors will only add to that ability to go unnoticed. Where bright colors may serve as a detriment.
So in summary, while it is possible to play woodsball and go unnoticed in bright colored gear, it is not the ideal situation, and could be improved by wearing dark clothes instead. These same dark clothes function just fine in the world of speedball since there is no advantage to wearing a particular color there.

Haha, I guess I mistook your earlier message as directed towards me then. My bad.
Yeah, camo in paintball is more for style than actual concealment. It really has no considerable advantage over a standard black pair of pants other than breaking up your outline a bit more. So, all in all camo is a bit overrated unless you are actually hunting something with sharper vision than a human.
