Eclipse HDE pants

Anybody use these? Need to replace my XSV pants, these look kind of nice, but I want something that has lots of padding in the knees like the XSV's had. Can't tell from the photos what the padding is like :/

I love mine. the knee pads are foam inserts, so if you're looking for LOTs of knee protection count these out. They do breathe well for being basically Tyveck with mesh in the seams. I used mine maybe 10 times and did some really hard work to them and they seem to be holding up well.

If you want superior knee protection, Empire LTD's are the way to go. I did a plenty of double knee slides in mine without knee pads over pretty rough ground and never had any issues.

Are the knee inserts removable?

Bangarang.


The ability to slip a more significant pad in there makes these some of the nicest paintball pants available.

You could absolutely fabricate you're own pads. There is pretty ample room in the holders once you break the skin's of the pants in. I'm really happy with mine with the only exception that they are kinda warm.

have you used the MOLLE straps on it at all? My dad saw these while I was looking at them, likes the idea of strapping his stock class gear to them instead of needing a belt.

Not yet. I personally don't like having gear strapped to me as I try to play hopper ball open class pump. If the rig was tight and didn't have any wobbly parts I don't see it being an issue until you get back to the staging area and accidentally sit on your paint tubes and 12ies.
