Bought these to compare to the covert khaki pants. These are OK, comfortable, pants but other than the "concealed" cargo pockets and normal back pockets they are not much more practical than Taclites. The stitching of the cargo pockets is easy to see and the zippers are obvious. Nothing really covert about them but they are really comfortable and don't have the out-dated back pockets like the traditional tactical pants which is a big plus. They do have a large zippered pocket directly behind each front pocket which would be handy for a pocket gun or cell phone.

I like the fit of these pants but get frustrated with how fast they wrinkle. I would pay more for wrinkle free or different combination of materials for longer lasting wear.
I love the fit. Very comfortable.

PLEASE FIX THE ZIPPERS

I have used this product for

These pants are the only pants I've ever had that were more comfortable than jeans. When the zippers work the pockets are great.

Unfortunately, the zippers are prone to failure. I ignored other reviews thinking that if I was careful with the zippers and didn't overload the pockets I would get by. WRONG! My front pocket zipper froze closed. Just by luck I had nothing in the pocket. Even working on it at home with pliers I can't get the pocket open. If I had been out and had keys or money in them my only choice would have been to cut the pocket open.
As much as I love these pants I can't take a chance on being "locked out" of my own pockets sometime when I need something.

Been a lot of reviewers complaining about this issue. Please put new zippers in these pants.

I have had other pants from 5.11 I really enjoyed them a great deal. The tactical pro pants lasted the longest. This pair on the other hand gave out and ripped from crotch the butt when I was hopping into a truck two weeks after I bought them. Very disappoint in this and the legs felt way to long but other than that and the fabric ripping so easily they are very comfortable the pockets are well paced and roomy I enjoyed them tell the rip. If you get some of there discount pants that are $20 or less consider them pants to use hard once and get rid of them. I don't recommend for cold weather with these pants but very comfortable if they changed the fabric I would gladly get a few more pairs. Over all good product just be aware of sharp things or high steps.

These pants were the perfect gift for my husband. Great fit and he really loved the convert pockets. He always liked the idea of cargo pants but didn't like all the pockets hanging on the outside. They have a clean look with room for all the stuff he carries with him daily and also when he goes hunting or shooting

5.11 Covert Cargo Pant

By Gman

I have used this product for

I regularly carry a 3" 1911 .45 ACP in upper right zippered pocket (usually unzipped) and it does not show. I leave upper right front (no zipper) empty to reduce bulk. Sometimes carry spare .45 mag in upper left zippered pocket, with small items in upper left (no zipper). Weight is well-distributed and makes for a comfortable carry. Other lower pockets are used as needed.

All the comfort of the standard cargo pants, a few less pockets but still plenty of pocket space. The pants come with a fabric zipper pull that makes the pants look a little less "dressy" but a few quick snips and the problem was solved. My only other issue is that the cargo pockets stitches are visible from the exterior. The 2.0 addresses both issues, but comes with the limitations associated with being more of a dress pant. These are a great step between the cargo pants and the dressier 2.0.

5-11 has done a superb job of branding and outreach, but it has missed the key aspect of clothing for the field: it has to dry fast. Under Armor and Patagonia are vastly better in this area, one reason I only bought one set from 5-11 -- it simply does not compare with high end off short sailing clothing or the new under armour line.

I've never written a product review before but I think this product deserves it. These pants were true to size, fit great, feel great, are not pleated, and do not have all the annoying Rambo looking outside cargo pockets. These pants are terrific for having the more "covert" look. I love the elastic in the waist and the ease of care. The only drawback I think they have are the limited number of color options and they aren't made in the good ole U.S.A. However, These pants are excellent for everyday wear when you need the extra storage and a more professional look.
