Best PB pants for $80-90?

So I'm looking into getting a pair of paintball pants because cargo pants just aren't enough. I've poked around on various websites and it seems there's a good selection in the $60-90 range.

I've attached a poll for anybody to vote on which ones they thing are best, and I would appreciate an explanation of why you made that choice. If you chose none of the above, then definitely let me know what you're thinking of.

I wear some discontinued 2010 Proto Sabre Camo, I got them for $49 brand new about 6 months ago.

Dye makes some good quality stuff, as most of the manufacturers you listed. I the end, its personal preference. You need to try them on for correct fit (should fit a little baggy). Then make sure your important parts are covered. Good knee protection and good ventilation. I would have to say that Gun and Mask aside, any money spent on pants is well worth it and they will hold up much better than BDUs.

I have a set of C11s, the mesh rips out, I have a set of valken redemption (top level) and love them, but a used set of PE Distortion pants should do you well, loved the padding in my old PE pants.

I will have to see what pants my field's store sells so I can try them on. I'm a 32 waist and 36 inseam so I'm not sure if it's going to be difficult to find sizes that fit well.

I'm 6'5" and im currently using dye c9 pants(basically the exact same thing as c10) and I am wearing a size XL. The waist is a bit tight on me, but i'm a 34 with 36 inseam. The length isnt too bad, they come up a bit above the ankles on me when my knees are bent, but standing they pretty much come down to the cleats. They are worth looking into, great padding, durability, and relatively lightweight. The ventilation could be a little bit better, but you could always cut out some of the inside if you wanted to.

If you want a pair of pants that will last you a long time then check out pbk pants i bought a pair last year and they still look and feel brand new after a full season of use. On the down side they are not as breathable as some pants, but the material is extremely rugged. I think only my PE pants compare to how long this will last. They are around $80 shipped for a brand new pair.

Edit: The company is based out of Oregon so they are actually quite local to you, and the customer service is top notch.
