Same. The pants themselves have held up nicely, but the back pocket I kept my swab in was ripped all the way through after one season. I can live with that for $50

Have you owned a pair like them, or just speculating?

Has to be speculation. I've put half a season on my HK jogger's with very little signs of wear. Wouldn't be surprised if they lasted another full season

These will probably be more durable, the HK joggers have a seem down the middle of each leg which was the point of failure for my first pair. Still took about 7 events on grass and a whole year of turf before giving way.

Same. Used mine for I think 5 events and practice last season and the seams are holding up

100% this.

Why can't somebody make Chigo rip offs with a more modern fit and lighter material? Does someone own a patent on them or something?

I know Exalt and Raza tried to make some similar to Chigos but they don't hold a candle to the originals.

Is that a joke like "we hate GI and they steal everything so they must make a rip off of this"?

If it's not a joke, you got a link to GI Chigos?

The GI pants are called Grind. While they are very mich chigo-like I preferred the GI Glide pants.

They were formerly Raza's "budget baller" pants until they sold the template to GI. Now they are called the "Grind" pants as mentioned above. I too would call them chigo-esque. Not a perfect replica, but definitively in the same vein.

Yep. Don't let my comment about not liking them dissuade you from them. They are decent pants and if you want chigos, this is as close as you'll get....short of having your mom repair ones from 20 years ago and having bugs fall out of the seams (true story).

Sure, teams and joggers yeah great...

I want whatever version the X-Factor and those pinstripe ones that Farside were wearing were. They looked like the perfect mix between a slim jogger and the (to me) too bulky team pant.

Gimme!

We have those as our team pants and kept the pinstripes.

They're a different cut than the classic team pant though, correct?

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.
