You can get the Tackla 9000's for $120 online with free shipping if you use a coupon code. I got them from a local shop for $115 because I buy there a lot and they give me a discount.

I also really liked the Reebok 9k pants (the 2010 models, not the 2009). Those are under $100 online but some shops wanted $115+ for them. They are heavier though.

As for whether they are worth it or not, check the reputation of Tacklas. Yes, nobody needs $120 pants like nobody needs $200 Eagles or $200 S19's. But they are worth every penny. Mine had zero break in time, have fantastic mobility, and I haven't felt a thing in them on the ice (and I've gotten dumped pretty hard a few times).
