Sounds like you got a lemon pair. I've had Crusades in Whiteout for well over a year now and the only signs of wear they're showing is a little bit of fuzziness/wear on the threads around the thighs and knees. I expect them to last another year or so and they've been well worth the $59 I got them for when they were on sale.
Full disclosure is I'm a fatty who plays recball so my wear cycle is going to be a bit different than yours. Less consistent diving and sliding (though I have, I think maybe once even intentionally) but more kneeling on rough surfaces, snagging on branches, etc.
