I think this really gets at it. Pattern? Tiger stripe, multicam, woodland, fleck, DPM, Rhodesian (drool), khaki, OD, black, one of the cool newish ones (Pencott, Kryptec, A-Tacs)...

Material? Breathable or durable? Depends on play style and location.

Style? Some of us want BDUs, some want camo "paintball paints," some want "high tech" (for lack of a better phrase) Crye style pants.

Built-in knee pads or not? Cargo pockets? Zippers or buttons?

Ask 10 people get 12 pairs of pants. It's just not worth it to design, make, and market one style for such a diffuse market.

I have had the same pair of BT pants for years man. Best $ I ever spent (unlike the DBD stuff that ripped right away)

This kind of brings us full circle, back to where I started. I said initially this was about adopting a neutral Earth tone like a khaki and/or green (like OD green) to avoid the myriad of colors that can make such a venture unfeasible and unprofitable.

Further, I talked about features we can all pretty much agree on to some degree or another...a stretch crotch being paramount in my opinion.

If they can profit selling some of the horrible colors they offer these speedball pants in, I would think an OD green and black pant wouldn't be a loser.

I dunno if the 2011 BT Pro gear never caught on because of the brand or what, but I love mine. It's a shame it was so good for only one year.

I lost a lotta weight 2016 and my extra-large were feeling a bit baggy, so I managed to wrestle a new set of large from str8boostn and they're in the mail tomorrow!



I'm psyched. He says he has one more Large pair (some day I'll regret not buying these), and two XXL.

Laysick paintball has Olive and Foxray Camo (euro camo looking pattern) pants

I ordered some laysick pants which is located in England a week ago. 2 olive pants and 2 foxray camo pants. the sizing info was vague so I bought L & XL sizes since I was in between L & XL sizing

Will decide which colors and sizes to keep once they arrive.

Those look super baggy around the crotch. Pants like that always feel like they're falling down on me. Along with half-assed knee pads, this is the main reason I can't stand 99% of paintball pants.
