Best Pants in Terms of Padding and Durability

Hey Nation,
I am in the market for new pants. I currently own old school JT teams with are incredibly light and east to move in, however the padding sucks. I am looking at C10s lysk and anything else. I have 60-80 to spend via nation. Any suggestions?

Dye, Empire, DXS, Tanked, and Eclipse pants are all great choices. If you are looking to buy new make sure to look for previous year's models. Be sure to try them on before trying them on. Pants vary in comfort for the individual.

Used Empire LTD pants are really amazing. Awesome padding and you do not feel like you are weighted down.

I've worn the C11's for a while now and they show almost no sign of wear. I'm not sure what the differences between the 10's and 11's are but I can't imagine its much.

I picked up some eclipse 2012 pants, I haven't had a chance to play in them yet but in terms of padding and durability they feel very solid.

the most durable with the most rugged knee pads are empire Ltd's by far. I've been using the same pair for 4 seasons. tripled heavy duty stitching in all the heavy wear areas.

I have 2k11 Empire LTD's and get a ton of bounces the pants are amazing, but my jersey is wearing a little fast for my taste, both are great in terms of padding though
