Crimson Death, those pads look like exactly what I want, to bad about the price.
Bonus question: What sort of shot count can I expect from a 13/3000 on a ion with stock bolt and reg, I'm wondering if its worth using one on my marker.
Thanks for the great info guys
Most PB pads will hold up for a little while with use in the woods, and no pants over the top. I wouldn't expect too much.

As far as pants first over pads, I can see advantages either way. With pads first, you are better protecting your knees. With pants first, you're giving some modicum of protection to the entirety of your leg but, they will better protect your pads when you get them.

As far as Ions on 13/3K tanks- you'll get about 100 shots if your Ion is tuned for efficiency, and a good paint to barrel match.
