Tactlite Ems pants

By Kellen


I bought my first pair and I am very pleased. I will by more very soon. Thank you for everything.


Wore out in 9 months

By The always prepared person

from Southampton pa

I use these at work 3 days a week on a private ambulance. I like these a lot except the crotch on mine wore thin and tore at the seams within 9 months.


not just for EMS

By Tower Dog

from All over the U.S.

I bought these as a "test" pair of pants to use as a cell tower climber and a year later they are still passing with flying colors. Will definitely be adding a lot more pairs of these to the inventory for my climbing gear. Works well hot or old and all the pockets when you up on that tower are a life saver.


Great EMS pants

By EMSer

from United States

I am an EMT and I have several 5.11 pants and love their quality. They have stood up better than the "others" I have owned and why I spend more on the 5.11 despite the 46" waste pants costing more and not being hemmed.


Only brand I will buy now!


from Linton, ND

I have worked in EMS for almost 15 years. The only pants I ever wore were protuff brand, until I tried 5.11. Now these are the only brand I will buy. The numerous pockets serve their purpose well. No worries about the crotch tearing or wearing out. The combination of velcro and buttons on the cargo pockets assures no lost scissors or tape. Great quality. I wear these pants approx 40-100 hours per week.


would buy again

By kyle

from kankakee,il

use these pants all the time. the biggest problem I find is the area around the zipper always rips. other than that love the pants.

By solivant

i own three pair. stitching around fly ripped on two of them, really bad. once this issue is correct i call the m perfect.


Best EMS Pants to own

By Derek E

from Hampstead, Maryland

These pants are wonderful. I purchased a pair well over a year ago, they are in excellent condition for the abuse they've been through. No rips, tears, discoloration, anything really. The only con I had was they're just a tiny bit short, enough for me to personally notice but I am also picky. Enough pockets for me to fit all my EMS gear, yet be able to put on turnout pants over top and not be bulky. Wonderful make 5.11 don't change it one bit.


Great Pants

By Paramedic 1988

from kansas

Very good pants. I have had them all, duty pro, pro tough, etc....... those cant hold a candle to these pants. I recommend them.


Excellent product

By Jason M

from WI

These are great, hard wearing pants. I've had them for 5 or 6 months now and there still holding well. I've worn them on countless shifts and they have the quality that will deliver.
