Hello people! Smile I've never owner pb pants before, ive just always worn standard camo pants. In fact, i know pretty much nothing about them, so i'll need all your opinions if you don't mind.... :tup:

-I've had a few knee surgeries on one knee, so they must have very good knee padding - #1 concern.

-They'll need to have good schnutter protection - #2 concern.

-They'll need to fit someone with long limbs - I'm 6'2, and weigh 190, but i kinda have freakishly long limbs.... i really don't want to be wearing high-waters out there. -#3 concern.

I don't care about price. I'd rather spend a few extra bucks on a solid pair that will last forever - i'm done w/my growth spurt Smile .

I'd be willing to buy used if in great shape - feel free to pm me any offers.

PLEASE BE DESCRIPTIVE W/YOUR OPINIONS - remember, ive never worn pb pants before.... THANKS ALL!

Don't bother with a cup then. I've never taken a shot to the pills. Besides, we have an un written rule about intentionally shooting someone in the pills. It's bad form. Our field is out a ways down a logging road... one could get beaten up and left out in the boonies.

About my third game, I took a running shot to the stones. reminded me of "return of the Jedi" I learned a new definition of pain and suffering. I can't stand wearing a cup, but a hand towel tucked in the front of the pants is a winner everytime, just make sure you leave enough hanging out to cover the bitlets.

Stuff a sock down your pants. It'll intimidate the other guys and drive the ladies wild. Wink

I wear some old dye pants, they have a gym short lining(that only goes to your knees) and then almost a material like the stretchy nxe tank covers around your crotch, it's breatheable too. I've never been shot at close range there, but I have had several bounces, and no breaks. So I'm not sure why you'd be worried unless you play so agressively that you get bunkered every 3rd game. As for your knees, I would wear knee pads (and probably elbow pads, but not on your knees). My pants are also a size or two too big, but since they have a velcro belt on each side, they are perfect, and the bagginess helps me get some bounces.

For your Question, i say Jt pants. ive had them for 3 years now and im now 6'4 265 and i got them my sophmore year.

1 - thier knee pading is nice but if you want good knee protection invest in some nice knee pads like Proto or Dye (have worn both and they both rock)

2 - i get hit there occationaly...i can count at least 8 times since ive had these pants... and i tore a seem at the crotch and have found paintballs sitting there after a game =/. but a quick stitching when i wasnt lazy fi\xed ti and they havent toren since. So if your worryed about your family jewels wear a cup or (As much as i dont want to say this ) deal with it? Sad

3 - Im 6'4 265 and they are baggy on me and i still have a little bit of more room to grow upwards, their size 36, but i normal wear 38's.

My rateing of jt pants is 8/10 since they tore.

Oh ya wear like under amour with Pb pants iv'e found that Pb pants like to bunch boxers, so i just wear under armour works perfectly.
