Vapor X30 Pant Durability?

After about 4-6 games using my new Bauer X30 Vapor ice pants, the crotch area started to rip and tear. Icewarehouse.com was nice enough to exchange them since they were still under the warranty.

I played my second game with the new pants tonight and there's already a small tear in the same spot. Do I just keep getting pants from a defective batch or in your experiences, are they just not durable?

Some guys over at ModSquad think it's cause they're too small on me. I'm 5'5" with a size 32 waist. I'm wearing a small right now and while it's a snug fit, it's no different than when I wore a small Bauer supreme shell that lasted me almost 2 seasons before I switched to these pants.

Would going up to the medium really help, even though it would open up the other problem of length/fit issues?

I use a pair of Bauer One15 pants, which I got as I was just getting back into the sport. It is showing signs of wear in the crotch area also, after about 20 games or so.

I'm moving up to Eagle pants next.
