I found my Empire pants to be quite cool and ventilated - especially playing in a tournament in January!
Actually, they're the most ventilated pants I've owned...

Empire Reacts.... I paid 100 bucks for them.... they have lasted 5 extensive torneys... and like 20 practices with minimal wear and tear.... Alot better ventelated then my JT torney pants...
Well worth my 100 dollars... Only weak point is the zipper which i got replaced with a metal one and now it works awesome....

how well ventilated are the fighter pants from smartparts

Empire pants FTW!
JT Teams are off the hook, really anything that costs you ober 50 or 60 is gonna be a good quality pant, so just go with what you like.

I would say empire for mid range price but if you have the money the 06 Dye pants are by far the best pants i have ever had, well padded and ventilated.

has anyone tried the redz envy pants? there in price range and the reviews on them look pretty good, how bout the brevability?
How are they in comparison to the empire invert or smartparts fighter?

I had the eNVy pants. There's some pics running around here and on the Redz site with me wearing them. Although technically, I'm still sponsored by Redz, I can't lie to you. Don't get them. PERIOD. They are too weak in all the important areas and are SINGLE stitched in all areas - the only pants I've ever seen with single stitching. If you don't have to bend, slide or crouch, they're awesome pants....:rolleyes:
They look good, and the material is light, but within 1 tournament, my whole team had holes and rips in them, usually where the seams met the ripstop material. The crotch rides too low and if you have any weight around your middle, you're going to blow them out in the crotch big time.
Now, the Redz Comfort pants are awesome! I have two pair of those and they live up to their advertising as being bullet proof pajamas. Not a lot of ventilation though.

I have a pair of Airtime pants (06) and I love them, breathable and light, but plenty durable. I am ready to get a new pair but they have been through this entire year practice 3-4 times a week, a tourny about every other weekend... These pants have seen some playing time, and the only reason I am replacing them is they are starting to get worn and looking a bit grungy, no holes in them, and they are still ubber comfy.

What size pants should I get, I got like a 31/ 32 inch waist, i htink its a medium but do they differ with brand
Also, anyone tried out the smartparts fighter apnts or proto pants

I couldn't be happier with my 05 Protos, and I am sure the 06's are just as good if not, better.. When I out grow my Protos though, It is going to be the JT team pants FTW.. I wore some and they are SWEET.. And they are only 80 bucks, not too bad for a GREAT pant..
