Both sets of mine are the same pattern/amount of mesh.

I'm pretty sure the multicam are also a heavier weight nylon than some of the other patterns, 1000D vs. 500D iirc. So they do run hotter, I was just noting that even between the runs of MC some are more vented.

just realized something, these jerseys are classy. Not like all the gang banger crap that everyone else is putting out.

So I guess it hasn't been mentioned... But does anyone see the similarities between the FX 2.0 and the Prevail pants?

I know that Empire and JT are both owned by Kee, but I just wanted to bring that up.

Makes sense; Same designer, same factory, different label.

I really, really like those gloves. All paintball gloves should have hard rubber knuckle armor like this.

I saw the whole lineup today at MAO.

I give it a meh rating. The pants have ungoldy padding like the old JTs, if you love them great, if not... Meh. The pair I tried on were very bulky.

Jersey was a jersey.

The gloves I had high expectations for, and boy did they not meet them. The hard rubber knuckle is there, but other than minor protection, didn't seem like much. I'm picky when I wear gloves and I love gloves that conform to your hand and are graceful and tacky for holding markers. These, I wouldn't pay the price for them. The glove fingers were flexible so you can walk the trigger and do things with ease, but the material was so thin that it reminded me of wearing double latex gloves.

So that's my two cents on the items, take it for what you will. Check them out in person and make your own decision.

Prices weren't posted on the pants/jersey, that or I overlooked the tag. I remember the gloves being like $40ish something, I freaked out when I saw the price.
