need help with bdu's

Okay, for a long time Ive been using standard Woodland bdu's but theyve worn away and I've decided to get new ones, but theres so many options out there I need help with my decision.

I want to go with either Marpat or Tiger stripe.

now I found these Marpat bdu's here http://www.opsgear.com/Tactical-Resp...p/atl-1268.htm and theres a thing that says "Reinforced internal knee pockets for knee pad inserts, with easy access external hook & loop opening" does that mean that I can put these in there? http://www.ur-tactical.com/unlimitsh...37e626f8afddd7 like that means there are spots to slip knee pads in those pants?

so are those bdu's kinda like those multicam gen-2 combat bdu's that I think Huang sells in his master sales thread, (man if only they made marpat versions) also does anyone else know where those OPS knee pads are sold? I dont really feel comfortable ordering from a place called "ur-tactical" unless someone can vouch for them.

I also came across these tiger stripes, more for fashion than camoflauge I guess http://www.opsgear.com/Tactical-Tige...p/atl-1912.htm those say "Reinforced seat and knee patches" that isnt the same as the marpats is it? I cant put knee pads in those can I? (im pretty particular about the knee pads because mine always fall down and its very annoying)

Now I found these cheap replica's of the truspec Marpat design ones at ebairsoft, http://www.ebairsoft.com/digital-woo...orm-p-140.html their cheap (yes I know, get what you pay for blablabla) and have the same "Reinforced Elbow/Forearm compatible" things on them but how's the shipping from ebairsoft? thats pretty far away, will $60.00 turn into $160? and how's the wait?

thanks guys, based on feedback I'll make my decision.

oh also, can I get any of the things in the above links within Canada? I checked a few and turned up nothing, and my local surplus store doesnt have marpats, probably because their so new. any online canadian retailer?
