I've seen a lot of Valken pants tear. I'd say stick with Empire, Dye, PE, Proto, etc. Not saying that those won't tear, but I've seen many more Valken pants tear than the other brands mentioned. Take that with a grain of salt as I don't really care for Valken gear either.
Almost certain I'm playing tomorrow night
Friend just turned 21. Bought a 6 pack of Smirnoff Ice and am going to see how many times I can ice him tonight.
