Best alternative for MTP issue trousers?

#1
I'm looking to buy a set of rip-stop Multicam trousers and wanted to know if anyone has tried the following and if so, what they thought of them.

1. Cyre Precision field pants (not the SF ones with external knee pads - ally but excessively waltish IMHO).
2. Arc'teryx LEAF TALOS pants.
3. Blackhawk!(?) HPFU pants (the set without built in tornies).

I know they're pricey and yes, there's nothing wrong with the issue MTP, but I want a hard wearing set too.

Cheers

Wont you be slightly pissed if you ripped an expensive pair of trousers on exercise? Surely you can just get a pair of PCS/ S95 trousers modified for slightly less. (At the tailors shop down in HQ Land Forces there were a set of PCS being tailored!?)

I take your point but a: that's what over priced kit insurance is for and b: i'm rather not have a bergen lid sown into the arrse of my pants or what ever the tailors at Army HQ do...:) so.... grateful if anyone has any experience of the above trousers.
