I own a few different styles of 5.11 pants and these are my least favorite. They are well made and perfect for warmer weather but they don't fit me well. If you have an athletic build(5'9,190lbs), big quads in particular, you won't enjoy the tight fit. Wish there was some type of stretching to the fabric but it doesn't flex at all.
Constancy has been the keystone in the pant line.... I have owned almos every pant they make and have never been disappointed until now. I don't know what changed weather it's material used or a design change, but these pants grab at the knees and I almost changed to a Soprano when I sat down. There is absolutely no room in the crotch. Having said that the construction is superb, pants are light weight and all the normal bells and whistles you expect.... I just don't understand why these pants are different?
These pants have a fantastic material!!! The nylon used reminds me of the old ripstop BDU material, but without any of the problems of cotton. Its lightweight and packs down well, but its not that thin taffeta junk that makes you feel naked.
Out in the hot woods for 3 days I got sweaty, smelly, dirty, and they breathe so well and dry so fast. So much better than blue jeans that would have been damp and smelly the entire time.
It's been hot while I've used them, but this kind of material is ideal for cold wet weather where getting cold wet things dry and warm is hard to do and very important.
These Fast-Tac pants are absolutely worth the money. They are not only light weight, but also comfortable and easy to maneuver in. If you're thinking of getting a new pair of tactical-like pants I would definitely give these a try. The waist band is convenient and fits to your waist size without a hassle. Great job by 5.11!
Pockets are made of mesh, rather than a continuous cloth like traditional pants. Not good for keys.
I bought a pair of Black pants. Its is light weight and very comfortable. Looks sharp. Love the self adjusting waist band. Will get another pair.
Bought a pair a few weeks ago and they have been my favorite pair since then (yes, I washed them!) I'm buying another pair.
I bought a black pair of these and they work great! Very comfortable and lightweight and they look sharp. Ended up also getting a set in tan. I am a Deputy Sheriff and a K-9 Handler so the fur brushes of the pants nicely and my dog's claws don't leave scrape marks like with cotton blend pants. No complaints so far!
