I just split the last zipper on my pants this morning. :x I have the Tour Master Venture because I like the armor in the knees and the full side zipper for sliping my big feet though. Plus they were what I could afford at the time. So I went to order a new pair tonight, price has almost doubled since I bought mine. And with the zipper problems I just can't pay that, there has to be better out there. So I ask, What, Why and Where did you get your gear?
