Hello all,

Deciding to buy a pair of paintball pants and jersey.

Budget is a concern for me.

I am looking at the 2014 empire prevail pants, and am just wondering about the differences from the 2012 model.

Also any suggestions for a good jersey would be great.

Thanks.


My setup: Tippy 98 custom pro, guardian 48/3000 tank, e-flex, and PROTO PRIMO (best hopper EVER)

Dont worry about a jersey, theyre pointless except for team uniformity. My suggestion would be to get some kneepads and elbow pads before either of these. Planet Eclipse are excellent. You could use some BDU or cargo pants (lots of national-level tournament players use pants like these by choice). Remember, pads protect you, jerseys and pants are a luxury (more durable knees/elbows, mesh ventilation, LIGHT padding to get paint to bounce rather than break).

To answer your question about the pants, everyone that I know that has the Prevail pants has had durability issues with them. I would suggest a pair of Exalt pants or an older year model of Planet Eclipse, Dye or Empire pants if there are some still available in your size. (I wear Exalt pants and they are my favorite along with many local players and memebers of this site). Nothimg really changes on each year of pants other than aesthetics or small changes like buckle or zipper placement.

Very true^

Also, I recommend looking at Disruptive Gen 2 Pants for about 100 dollars. Great balance in weight, durability, and breathability.

KK orange chicken will take a look at them.

Also sorta amazed that the pros practice in only knee and elbow pads.

Well at some point you realize all that stuff doesn't matter too much, especially during practice. Some of the best players at my field have pants, pads, and a t shirt.

Yea they'll just wipe it off anyways haha

 

And if you are serous about getting into paintball, or you slide a decent amount I'd advise that you skip prevails, they'll rip in the first 6 months of owning them, they do not handle being washed well either, the iron on logo's will come off in a short amount of time not to mention that the stitching is alittle sketchy as well, what I mean by that is although it looks the same as whats in higher quality pants it doesn't seem to hold up as long.

I went through 2 pairs before the ones I retired. Personally I would agree playdoh but I opted for one of those older prevail jerseys, works for practices since they are very light.
