What are you looking for in terms of padding?

Just knee and elbow padding?

Eclipse Elbow Pads. Then Eclipse or Dye Knee pads. There's also Empire Prevails which work fine for kneepads, but I'd definitely go with the Eclipse Elbow Pads.

No disruptive? It's a miracle... -_-

Anyways,
I would check out the dye 09 knee pads on ANSgear. Also, the dye elbow pads are good. I would also grab a pair of slider shorts. My favorite are PE Overloads.

You guys got lucky, if he said he wanted tactical or milsim... Disruptive would be thrown around. But those are a good option if you're looking for nice quality 'Tactical' kneepads, such as the ones worn by the military and police. They are also very inexpensive, being 35 dollars, and are very comfortable due to the straps are on the top and bottom, not behind the knee where it can be annoying, as well as restricting to your movement.
But for solely paintball, Eclipse, Empire, and Dye are your best bet. The big three.
Eclipse Overload.
Empire Prevail.
Dye.

May I ask why you like Disruptive so much? Like honestly, I've had a few of their pants, and I basically threw them away after I bought my Dye's... Also, I can think of atleast five-ten barrels that are better than the disruptive. I would take CP over disruptive any day.

Tons of reasons. But I'm sure even more can be said from people who know me on TechPB. I'll wait, and then edit or comment again on my raisinz.

Ok editing now:
They're great quality products.
They're like the hidden oasis of good products, hidden and mostly unheard of, but a decently large brand; much larger than lurker or pooty, but not as big as Sly.
They have style in their products.
Very inexpensive, yet very good. The barrels I would say I would take over Custom Products if I had the immediate opportunity.
They make tons of apparel.

I just bought cheap knee pads and then use athletic tape to keep them from sliding. Then get whatever you want for elbows, my personal preference are Sly

So, Dye UL's and freaks and shifts are obviously better than Disruptive because what? Of what you heard? Or what you saw the price was? Or what markers you saw them on? I recommend Disruptive because of the price they offer them for, and they are a ton quieter than CP barrels and a bunch lighter.

On topic please?

Don't try to skimp on the knee padding. But that doesn't mean you can't go out and get yourself some pretty cheap Empire Prevails. Eclipse Overload elbow pads are considered some of the best because they are contoured and molded so that it's natural form is bent, as your elbow normally is. This makes them a ton more comfortable and free.

I would prefer to own a Dye UL or a Freak anyday. You get what you pay for. By the way just saying porting is not the only factor in making a barrel quiet, the heavier the barrel the more it suppresses the sound signature and you forgot about resale value, disruptive barrels and products would probably sell incredibly cheap used because the majority of people like to buy products from a bigger comppany, not just a company based in Arizona or what ever state you keep talking about.

I was actually thinking about doing just that, but I got too lazy to do so. And barrels with resale value? Why would yoh care so much about that? If anything, the barrel is the one thing I would keep when selling a marker, since it is something that is near universal for markers and it works great for them.

I had a jersey and paintball pants combo for a bit and I thought it was enough, that is not the case! I kept the pants ($40 valkens) , bought planet eclipse elbow pads ($45), some hard shell knee pads from home depot ($12) and I use a regular tee shirt. Best budget set up, the knee pads and meant for people being on their knees all day, I don't even feel anything when im on my knees now!
