Well my old ECWCS goretex pants have had one to many briar patches and need to be replaced. Waht is the best option for replacement. I have seen Tru Spec, but I don't know if they are good. I also have checked out some of the older types on EBAY and have used those before so they are a known option. I'm not afraid to pay for good stuff, but also its mostly to wear at work in the rain and snow. I also have a matching jacket to my ruined pants and it is still ok, but water pushes through the jacket when it gets saturated. Have any of the newer gens fixed this?
