Watching the Chicago finals on youtube and saw Bains wearing a pair without the stars and only the red stripes during a shot of the pits.

The red stripes and stars have all worn off due to use and washing.

Nick - Was Dave wearing an updated version at WCO? They looked different than his ones in Chicago. Still sans stars

What does that say about the durability of the pants then?

In short, let my knee pads be my knee pads.
I don't know man. I rarely wear kneepads so i'd want to have some padding in the knees. For reference though, my favorite pants that i've owned are the 07 JTs.

It just says that the heat pressed logos come off after a lot of use and washing. They were put on as a test and as most have stated in this thread they'd rather not have them on the pants.

The pants themselves hold up fine.

Ah, alright! Good to know! Were you guys thinking of stitched on logos possibly if you were to go to a logo design, or would that be too expensive to produce?

just my 2 cents
Something like the old style JT pants with the cargo pockets would be nice. A tighter fit (slim style) with a decent size inseam. All the pants now a days are like wearing jnco's.

the problem they had with the old pants is that they ripped a good amount and they are still getting pants in that they need to replace and they have to spend money and manufacturing time producing replacement pants.

they want to make sure that these pants hold up really well before releasing them, so it doesn't cost them money

I would love to see the original design. I know I'm in the minority on that though.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
