But hey poop happens...
As chippy said, you can get some good deals on closeouts at mail order bike stores.
Try that, and if that dosent work, I think I got some Mr. Motorcycle gear in the dog house the dog has been using for bedding this past winter if you want it.

I love wearing a nice pair of MX pants, too, but it kills me to spend $150 and then rip a big hole in them on a tree branch on the first ride with them. You can but 4 pairs for the cost of one pair of MX pants.

Yamakaze, I wouldn't get the camo BDUs either. There is a pretty good assortment of solid colors in the military surplus stores around where I live. I personally have some in dark blue and khaki. They seem to be essentially the same thing as the OD green jungle fatigue pants, except in the different colors. They even have those labels in the that regular BDUs have.

I picked up a used set of MSR MX pants from a local shop for $50. They have the typical burned holes, and even a hole in the left knee, but they hold up really well when I fall. And the plastic sections protect my legs in all the critical spots.
I've even had brushes of death with cactus here in Phoenix and the pants held up better than my boots.
I plan to some day buy a really nice set of Fox pants, but like you guys, I can't bring myself to spend $150 on pants at this point.
