Most Durable pants?

I wanna say the 08 Empire LTD's, but maybe I'm wrong. Anyone care to share their experiences with other pants?

My older Dye and Proto pants (before they started padding them heavily) are ridiculously durable.

I have Dye C8 and Proto 08 pants and they are both very durable.
I used to have Empire pants (2005 version, not sure exactly what they were) and they lasted for about 9 months before they started tearing.
Evil pants aren't bad either.

My evil pants are ok, but the velcro on them wasn't put on very well. It tore off pretty quick.

Never had a problem with the velcro coming off.

In fact the pants are the 07 version (had them since Cup 06) and still in great shape.

The new JT teams are durable as all hell. I use them every weekend, and they look brand new still. Not a single showing of wear at all. And after you cut out the mesh on the inside they are so light.

I love my C6 dyes but they've ripped at the knees, down through the padding, past the foam past the stitching and through the mesh onto my knee pads.

I bought them in June 07 and they've been ripped at the knees since around sept this year.


if it wasn't for that damn rip I'd still be wearing them, but I got me new 09 Ltd Empire pants, can't wait to use them!

The 07 pants of invert is great, i think's the lightest pants i ever own.
The JT team pants are pretty good to, but the knee pads is kind of wide.

Just played with 09' Empire contacts on Wed and they're awesome!

Tons of padding and the built in micro fiber cloth is handy. They cleaned easily also!

They are on the heavy side though, but it's a trade off.

Overall I love them and I'm buying a pair of the striped LTD's.
