Forget the Prevail and Crusade then.
I want to get some pants that are durable and will last a long time, fairly lightweight and breathable, and have a decent amount of padding.
Exalt Thrashers and Empire Contact LTD 2012 are just a tad more than $100 and are MUCH better than either of those. Definitely worth the money. Draxxus, Dye and Planet Eclipse pants are all nice too, just farther out of your price range.

Neither is very durable nor has good padding.
Seriously, get the Exalts. You'll be MUCH happier with them.

As much as any other good pair of paintball pants. I would wager more so than Prevail or Crusade as well.
Are the exalts pretty adjustable?

The disruptive pants are looking pretty good. What do you like about them?
Great pants for the price. Very tough, and very light, and very breathable. Not as much hip protection as most pants however, but everything else is very high quality and durable. Disruptive is based in Arizona, and as such the players need a pant that is durable yet breathable, and light so the rough rocky and dusty terrain of Arizona does not slow us down. Knee padding will keep you protected, and the mesh on multiple points will keep you cool. The stretch points make sure they move with you and not against you, and the multiple points of adjustment ensure that you have a perfect custom fit, from waist adjustment to ankle cuffs, they have it all. The inner basketball shorts also contribute to breathability, and the zippered pockets and squeegee pockets make sure you arrive on the field always prepared, and your stuff protected and secure.
There is a pod loop on the back for those days where you really don't need much more than an extra pod, but in all honesty, holds pods just about as well as the 'extra' pod loops on pod packs, and has a decently good chance of falling out if you play hard and dive often.

Disruptive Gen 2's are only 100, so keep in mind they're cheaper than most pants out there.

These pants were made to be strong.

Also, they are really light pants, but dont let that fool you, they're surprisingly durable for how light they are.

Sly stuff is "meh" in my experience. They have a really shiny, noisy (when moving) material. I will say this about pants and leave it there: a good many people wear Exalt pants that have no contractual obligations and recommend them over others they have tried. I have yet to no be impressed with any Exalt products I've used myself. Just my $0.02
I just saw some sly pro mercs on ans or $80. Are they any good? And the disruptive pants look good.

Paintball companies must love putting in stickers. Great marketing for only a few cents.
Just got the pants in and they seem great! Can't wait to use them and do a review on them after I test them out. Ohh yeah and LOTS of stickers!!!!!!!
