Best Paintball Pants

Hey, I'm looking to buy paintball pants around the $120 range. I play snake very aggressively so I need something really tough. I wear knee pads. I'm currently looking at 2012 empire contact, empire zero contact, empire ltd, and 2013 Valken Redemption. First, what is the difference between contact and ltd? Second, what is the best choice out of all of these? If there are any othes out there please tell me.

The contact and the ltd - other then the color, they are the same padding wise. The only real difference is the limited, only so many of them are made and they come with a L.E. Card when you buy them. As for the contacts, I wear them, wished they came in camo, lol, but they are pretty awesome. Bounce city. I had a pair of Valken VTacs (I know, not what you asked) that the stitching came undone on, so I upgraded to BT's, then to the Contacts.

I have had good luck with my Slys, but I don't like heavy padding in the pants. I wear slide shorts and think the setup is pretty comfortable.

honestly, the toughest pants i have used (which isn't much) is the planet eclipse pants. the knee padding is incredible almost to the point where i dont need knee pads.

2012 Empire LTD (theyre on sale for less than the standard contacts) if you like a lot of padding, 2012 Empire Zero if you like lighter pants. The knee material is the same for both and is EXTREMELY durable.
