Best pants I've had in my whole life


From Rafael


These are really great functional covert cargo pants. Keeping the feel of a cargo/tactical pant but looking quite formal at the same time. I don't like the 2.0 second generation that has buttons in the back ...goes unnecessary too far the formal route.

Great so far.


From Calvin


I will be ordering more as soon as I can get another coupon. Blue and Gray options would be nice.

Not so covert


From Jesse


Quality of manufacture is much poorer on these than other 5.11 pants. They are super baggy around the hips and thighs. Overall, poorly designed.

Terrible quality


From Hector


Wore these pants for about 6 times the back by the right pocket tore from kneeling over to grab a tool would not buy again



From Nate


I wear these pants everyday. They are casual enough for the field but still look nice for the office. Very comfortable. I am not in law enforcement so low key is the requirement. I can easily carry a aidearm with tucked in shirt, extra magazine, knife, flashlight, wallet, keys and a small trauma kit. These pants are perfect for my needs. Much better then the Covert Kakis I tried first. Plus I can actually afford these pants. Problem is I see the Covert Cargo on clearance everywhere. 5.11 if you are listening upgrade but don't get rid of this product. The fit, function and material are just what us guys who need nice looking work pants are looking for!!!!





A great pair of pants. Love the covert pockets and the elastic waist with belt loops. Very comfortable. I ordered the Tundra color which I thought were a brown color but to me seems more like a dark green. I will get more of these.

Great pants


From Jacques


Great pear of pants,

Looks nice feels nice, practical, great quality.
It should be available in other collors like black navy etc.
It seems silly to me to have a covert pair of pants in colors that scream "fuzz"
Make the available colors "covert" too.



From Robert


maybe could use at least 1 ZIPPER back pocket

Awesome pants


From bigronbo


I bought 8 pair and plan on more soon. I don't like the feel of the spandex type rip stop non cotton pants. I like the Kodiak except that the inner pocket doesn't zip. it is heavy 11 oz cotton canvas and very durable please bring it back with a zipping inner pocket. I went to the covert for the max size pockets and zipper inner pocket. they are lighter and better for summer. best thing is my M&P shield with crimson trace 9mm fits nicely in the inner pocket and ready for action but canceled. with the Kodiak the pocket doesn't zip giving opportunity for someone to see the clop end due to sorter pocket and no zipper. love the feel and durability of the cotton canvas.

Not stretchy, and uncomfortable pockets


From Andrew


These are not stretchy like other pants, and the fact that pockets "stack" in the same place, means you don't really get more room out of 4 main pockets than you would have out of 2. These are my least favorite 5.11 pants.
