A little background:
These are the first set of pants I bought specifically for paintball. Before these, I used BDU's. I use the 07 React SS jersey and pants now. Both are blue and black in color. So I will just get right down to it then:

Pro's:
Looks:
These pants look good, in my opinion, they don't look as good as some other pants, but they look good in general. I bought them in blue, and although as I said they look good, they would look better with some more color on them.
Quality:
The Empire React SS pants are very high quality pants, sure the price is steep, but you get what you pay for. These pants are RUGGED. They seem like they would be very hard to rip. I say they seem like it, because although mine have taken a lot of abuse, they are still in nearly perfect condition. The waistband is adjustable, and will fit (I think), just about anyone, unless you have a very large waistband size. The padding is also excellent, and they are easy to slide in. The React SS pants are also very comfortable as well.

Con's:
-No matter what color you buy, they are still mostly all black and don't have much other color on them.
-As said, they have a "stiff" look around the shin area because of the padding in that area.
-price, if the cost is a big deal to you, but all in all they are worth it.

Recommendation:
Would I recommend them? Hard to say when all I have ever worn for paintball pants are these (React SS) and BDU bottoms. But over BDU's or jeans etc. I would definitely recommend them. They are all around great pants. Should you buy them if you are considering them? Read my review and decide for yourself (and try them out for yourself if you can).

These were my first official paintball pants, and I must say that I was very pleased with their performance.

Pros.

Looks: I like the look of these pants. Basically it is black, with an accent color, which in my case was red, and I get comments on them quite often.
Performance:These pants are amazing when it comes to performance. The padding in the react pants are phenomenal, the crotch has plenty of padding to protect your genitalia. The knees/shin padding is super thick, but not in a way to where it's super stiff, it has the right amount IMO. These pants also adjust to fit your waste, just how you want it. These pants know how to take a beating too, it took me quite some time to get minuscule holes in the thigh area.

Cons.

Cosmetic flaws: Because of the ample amount of knee/shin padding, it gives these pants a more stiff look, and if you are worried about looks, that might be a thing to look at.These pants are black with accent colors, which is just another cosmetic thing, and should just be overlooked.

I would recommend the pants to anyone looking to get some paintball pants.

9/10

I bought these Empire pants because $60 for them was such a great deal new. They also match with my 08 Empire SE jersey.
I couldn't ask for more in paintball pants. Only thing I can say is that I would like it MORE if it looked as good as the 08 Contact SE pants. There's not that much color.


Pros:
Looks- Looks great
Comfort- Feels great
Features- Lots of features
Padding- Padding is pretty good. They have a harder/padded material for the shins
Quality- Great quality and I don't think they'd ever rip
Adjustability- VERY adjustable at the waste!

Cons:
-They are just stiff-looking because of the padding they have around the shin area. They don't feel stiff or bother you while running (I'm a snake player).
-I bought them in red and there's just a little bit of red. It's mostly black.

Empire React Pants SS They are confy pants, but they arent very good for sliding. I personally think for the money dye c7's are better. I wouldnt buy these pants. They shouldnt even be considered paintball pants.
