Comments: Have always bought mission pants but there is just something weird about the sizing of these pants. Like previous comments these pants are much shorter than other styles (including other Missions). Might be better for a shorter player but if you like to tape your pants around the shin guards you will have to hike these guys up. Other than the negatives on the style they do seem well constructed for a mid-level pant.

Comments: These are sized for shorter players. I'm 6'1" and 180 and wear a size medium in Bauer Premium pants. Size medium in the Mission AC3 are at least 3" shorter than the Bauers, but equally baggy around the mid-section. They would fit Martin St Louis, but not me. I'll be returning them. Other than fit, these look like good pants.

Comments: I play once a week on laminated concrete. I play a lot of d and I block a lot of shots. These lasted 7 months, and that's huge. The knees are still in pretty good shape, but the shin straps and the plastic on them are shredded.
I'm 5' 11" with a 32" waist. I got mediums. The waist fits fine, but the legs are short and the crotch is long. To get the legs to the bottom of my shin guards and have to pull these down until the crotch hits me about mid-thigh. No matter how I wear them, the double layer knee is always in the right spot.

Comments: These pants are awesome. Great style with great fit. Wide waist but great fit around the shins. Tightening strap is great instead of using tape.
From: Taylor, Tampa, FL
Comments: Excellent pants! Really made well, and seem really durable. The leg straps are a nice feature to have. Definitely a step up from the AC4s.
From: Chris, Long Island, NY
Comments: These pants a fantastic. They are leaps and bounds better then the axiom line. The knees are actually where your knees are, and they are dual layered. When you burn a hole in the outer layer there a second layer behind that. Also with the dual layers the fabric moves more under your knee when you fall so less holes form. I have had mine for one season now and they still look new(ish), way better then my axiom t.8s did at the same point. The shin straps work fantastic.
From: Mike, FL
Comments: Just played my first game in them and they were great. Good mobility and airflow. I did order a size smaller than usual (I'm 5'9" 185 lbs.) and the small fit pretty good. The straps behind the shin guards do a good job of locking the pads down and you don't need tape which is nice. Had a pair of Bauer XR5's which were the same price but wore through the knees waaay to fast. Plus they were a size medium and fit too big. These are much better.
