Hey guys, I'm looking into getting some camo paintball pants (I have real BDU's but I want the padding), and am having trouble picking between the following:

 

Planet Eclipse HDE Camo

 

Empire BT 2013 Combat - ETACS (multicam-ish)

 

Empire BT 2013 Professional - Terrapat (atacs-ish)

 

If anyone could help offer their opinion and suggestion, I would appreciate it.

 

I was originally thinking of getting the Valken Zulus, but after seeing a lot of sticking areas (specifically around the knees) I was moved away from them due to the lack or durability / stiching quality.

 

Thanks for the help!

A lot of people around here really like the HDE pants. Empire pants besides the Contact Zero have also had way too much padding for me personally.

What about camo wise? Has HDE been effective for people compared to multicam or atacs?

 

And BurningPlaydoh, where was the padding too much for you on the empire pants? Just curious.

 

 

Still taking other opinions/recommendations as well!

 

Thanks!

As far as function the Eclippse pants are awesome and durable

As far as camo patterns 80% of camoflauge is your behavior. Checking your backfield and being able to remain still are more important than what you are wearing.

No need for the jersey really. The podpack is a nice podpack but not neccesary if you already have one that works.

You know I have been looking at the Planet Eclipse HDE camo and like it.  But as near as I can tell they don't have a vest that matchs it.  I mean there pod pack seems great.  But it seems with HDE you are missing a way to carry water in a camel back.  That is the only thing holding me back from the HDE camo.  Any suggestions on a camel back or vest that would match the HDE pattern closely?

Tan or a multicam analogue.

I personally recommend the BT ETACs Multicam, simply because they are a phenomenal pair for their price point. I love them so much, I am buying a second pair for when my first fall apart. They are incredibly durable, theyve taken weekly beatings from me for a full season both on turf and woods. They are light weight and breathable but don't sacrifice padding or comfort. I highly recommend them, especially at their 80 dollar price.
