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).
At stores in Canada the high end Tacklas are around $200, in the States if you can get them for around $120 then thats certainly not too bad.
