Bought the Taclite Jeans-Cut after getting tired of having to buy new Covert Cargoes every few months. Was hoping the gusseted crotch and blended rip-stop fabric would be longer wearing and more comfortable (especially in hot weather). So far, they are proving to be a comfortable and durable replacement for causal wear.

With that said, there are some things I would change if I could...

The front slash pockets are way too shallow.

The double knees do not have knee-pad pockets (despite the description) and the external double layer detracts from the casual look of these pants. Moving the second layer inside (so only the stitching was externally visible) and actually including an opening to insert knee-pads would make these pants much more useful for both casual wear and range use.

Lastly, I'd really like to see these pants available in a wider range of colors. Recently 5.11 has introduced some newer colors (such as Tundra and Battle Brown) that are functional for field use, but don't scream "tactical!" Those colors would be the perfect fit for their more causal-style pants (like the Taclite Jeans-Cut).

I own multiple pairs of 5.11 pants for Duty Wear and Off Duty. These are simply the least impressive pants I've purchased. They sound like a great idea and look nice but that's about were the "impressive 5.11 experience" ends. While I still strongly recommend nearly every other pant in their product line - this is one that I cannot in good consciousness encourage anyone to buy these. I thought I'd try them out for a change from my Covert Cargo Pants that I wear all the time. Basically, they cut the pockets in half, added an inch + to the advertised waist line, and put in a few useless little pockets. The watch pocket actually ends up opening UNDER the belt (a 5.11 Web Belt and Leather Belt), the little slash pockets under the main pocket are either too shallow our too deep to use depending on what you might want, and the hand pockets are too small of an opening to put your knife and hand in at the same time, and the back pockets are so loose that I'm afraid I'll loose my wallet to the worst pickpocket in the world or just simply falling out as I sit down or walk around. If your looking for something with less flaps and a more refined appearance - stick with the TacLite Pro or the Covert Cargo... actually the Covert Cargo I recommend 100% - they will be my day to day favorite off duty 5.11 product from here on out! NOT Impressed with the TacLite JEAN CUT Pants at all...

I have 2 pairs of the khaki color and wear them on a regular basis. I was looking for a pant that lighter than the cotton khakis I normally wear but didn't want the cargo pockets that come with most pants made from a poly-cotton blend like these.

These fit the bill perfectly. They are durable and the pocket cuts match a jean layout which I prefer. The best feature in my opinion is the additional pockets on the front and "hidden" pockets on the back. The front fit my cell phone and folding knife very well and my flashlight goes in one of the back. This frees up my main front and back pockets for keys, wallet, etc. that used to get in the way before.

I only wish they did have the knee pad pouch as in the description. There is a double layer of material but no "pocket" opening for the pads.

Otherwise great durability and stain resistance.

These are really great pants. They fit quite well and are great when it's hot. I also really appreciate the subtle multi-use pockets. I do wish they came in a long-rise and 38" length version: because I'm tall and have to wear the regular 36/36 on my hips rather than waist.

I'm a safety/health professional for a manufacturing plant. I was in public safety for 15 years and loved the uniforms that were provided. The pants are comfortable and durable. I actually wanted the pants with cargo pockets, but these are great. The only con is cleaning, I got some oil on the knee and cuff and cannot get the stain out. Blood is another stain that will not come out. All and all a great product.

Describe Yourself

  • Not Military Not Police
  • Lite-packing Traveller

At first I was a bit shy about 5.11, as I am not military, not police, not a "survivalist" and do not want to look like a walking off duty military type. I travel Europe and the Far East 2-4 times a year for business and steal time to tour. I am in my 50's, a professional type (lawyer in US), have wife, kids, and a love of being on the road. I have been looking for a pair of travel pants that looks sharp and not like floppy cargo pants: and this is it 100%. The jean features are subdued so it looks like near-business wear: OK in hotel and restaurant and plane: does not draw attention, is crisp, doesn't wrinkle, is not a stain magnet and has a trim cut: low waisted and close-tapered legs that are not cut for an elephant. Do not hesitate to buy these pants as they fit all the needs for travel and then more. The pockets are there but hard to see and hard to find when you walk about. There are FOUR rear pockets that are on the seams so you do not see them. It has a great phone pocket on the upper thigh, the cargo pockets on the upper leg are discreet, small, sewn on a rackish angle which adds some flair and style. The fabric is the weight of a medium bluejean but is crisp and has a slight sheen: all of which means it can be worn all day, even for several days, and it looks good, very good. I have gone through a dozen other garments and learned what I wanted and found them in these pants. Do not hesitate to buy these pants if anything I wrote rings for you.
