So I have some 2010 Valken Crusade pants. They are still in great condition but I would like to get some new pants. I was looking at the Dye UL pants because they are very light. I would like pants that are pretty light but durable. Thanks.

Don't.get.the ULs, they are nothing.more than glorified wind pants. In that budget I would.look at the c13s, they are light, breathable, and padded pretty nice. I absolutely love mine.

If you want light the Dye C10/11/12/13/etc. are nice as are the Empire Contact Zero.

I just want to know what pants are really good that will hold up to the usual wear and tear but are comfy and really light. The field I play on has a few rocks so keep that in mind.

Does not compute.

I'd just go buy some paint or save the cash for something else.

To each their own.

Disruptive pants are great, and pretty cheap. They are very strong and durable. The padding on the knees keeps you protected, being made of tough ballistic nylon while looking good sliding to those bunkers. There are stretch points in multiple places to provide ultimate mobility to make sure you play without restriction. Since every person is different, there are multiple places of adjustment such as on the ankles, inside the waist, and outside the waist for a great custom fit. The white diamond stitching will ensure the pants last a while adding a strikingly sexy look to your style. Since they were developed for Arizona players, who play in the infamously tough, dusty and rocky terrain of Arizona, they are very lightweight and have many points of ventilation and mesh, to keep you cool throughout the day so you can keep on playing game after game. The Disruptive Generation 2 pants are sold at the Disruptive Product Inc. website for only $100, making them one of the best pants without emptying your wallet.

DXS Shank V2's are IMO the best pair of pants on the market.

I believe Disruptive are great, but everyone's biased in terms of favorite pants. According to the specs of both, it seems that the main difference is hip padding. The exalt has tougher hip padding, while the Disruptive pants replace some hip padding with breathable mesh for more cooling. Keep in mind though, I've owned Disruptive Pants for 2 years, and they have yet to show any rip or tear, and I use them in Arizona fields, which are tough, dusty, and really rocky. It has seen grass/turf a grand total of 5 times, all of which were either tournaments or practices. ONCE was it used at the Xtreme Pursuit facility, which has tons of turf.

Holy fuck, dude!
Can you even be more obviously sponsored?




I'd get pants from Dye, Proto, newer Eclipse, Tanked or Empire.
Just pick one you like the most, becuase they're all great.

Youd be a lot more successful in promoting these if you didnt post this huge wall of text every time. Give people your honest opinion in a concise manner.

I own the Dye UL pants and even though they look great, I would buy the C13s over them. You get no extra padding with the ULs, but they are made of great material and breathe very well.

Yeah, I don't really get why the UL gear is more expensive besides maybe different, more expensive materials?

I use Empire 2012 LTD's. They are everything I need in paintball pants, and ANSgear has them at a decent price right now.

Want my honest thoughts on the Disruptive Pants?
I love them to death, for both their price and quality. It has great features for the price, and is really all you need. I find it to be the pants I base everything else out of. I love the knee padding, and the white stitching is pretty unique and very noticeable. I love the tough construction, and the adjustable waist, and how the ankle straps are Velcro instead of the pull and tab thingy that most others have. The belt is a nice touch, adding to my confidence that they fit will. The internal waist adjustability really does help, and the zippered pockets are great. It's very breathable, even to the point that on windy days, if you spread out your legs, the breeze just flows through your pants, making you feel a tad...exposed.
But here are also my honest complaints:
The pod loop in the back isn't really all that useful unless you play a really calm style. For me being 'hyper-aggressive', as described by my team, my pod always falls out in recball. Thank god Empire Pods never open unless you want them to (HUH ORANGE MUST BE SPONZORED BY EMPIRE!). It works fine if you play woodsball or don't do a ton of sliding. Another complaint is that I have always been annoyed by the lack of hip protection. I feel that the breathable mesh could be taken off a bit and be replaced by hip padding; the same ones on the knees. It really doesn't make a difference, but I always think twice on sliding on my hip because of that. That being said, I also wear empire slider shorts, so it doesn't hurt a bit, and my pants have yet to show any signs of tear or wear, and I slide so much.

Here's a general overview of my thoughts on the pants: They're damn awesome, especially for the price they sell them for. But it's a jack of all trades pants more than anything. The stretch points feel rather plush, and the ventilation makes it seem like it's not too durable, but the knee padding and the overall construction says "Hah I beg to differ". It feels like a mix between Eclipse pants to what I assume Dye UL pants are like: Very lightweight(thus feeling a tad frail), but surprisingly strong.

+1

The Contact Zeros are very nice too if you want something lighter OP.

I get mad bounces off the legs though which is nice. Helps when diving into snake or a dorito and I catch a bounce or two (or 5) off my pants.

I'd love to see how fast I'd break the disruptive pants. :rolleyes:

Only pair of pants I never broke was the C10 pants from Dye. Pants usually break if you really play aggressive and on turf.
