These pants are much baggier in person than they are in these pictures and I'm not a skinny guy by any means. I think this is because in the photos, they have the pants hiked up very high giving it a tighter fitting appearance. Now I have to pay to return these.
Loved these pants. They have all the best features. I would have given them 5 stars except for the crotch length. Check out my full review at https://youtu.be/LCY2Pa3UcZM
Finally, pants with polyester instead of cotton, thank you!
I was hoping the ridge lines would take the honor of my favorite 5.11 pant. I own fas-tac cargos, tac-lite pro, jean cut and now ridge line. Tax lite pros remain my favorite. The ridgelines look great, thoughtful pocket placement and durable button attachment. But my word, the crotch is short in these things. I can only imagine this is what wearing a thong must be like. A little more drop, please. I'm not going for the Geddy Lee sausage smuggler look here.
I started out loving these pants when I bought them nearly a year ago. They fit well. They looked professional and were also perfect for casual wear. There was nothing tactical looking about them, which was perfect, so I bought four pair, total. I originally gave them five stars.
Then I noticed the crotch in my original pair had worn through after only 11 months of use. Looking at the crotch of the other three and two of them were starting to wear away in the crotch as well. It was so disappointing.
I've put them all away and have gone back to my Taclite Pros. I've also lowered my rating of the Ridgeline pants to two stars. You've got to do better, 5.11.
I have only worn carhartt dungarees for almost twenty years and the low rise waist and the gussested crotch on these are game changers. (only time will tell if it holds up) No more hiking my pants up and adjusting the boys before sitting or big steps. These pants fit just below my belly without having the crotch down to my knees and without feeling weird. The legs are loose but not baggy and combined with the stretch fabric range of motion is not restricted even with my IWB, all my EDC essentials, and two AR mags. They fit over my long johns without sticking or bunching and once again thanks to the fabric without restriction. My only complaint is that they are made in Bangladesh.
I purchased these hoping for a sleek looking version of the Stryke pants, but the fit is nothing close. I have larger than average thighs from years of cycling and the pants were pulled tight around them. A 30x32 Stryke fits me perfectly, but these not so much.
Loved the pants at first, but they discolored after only a few washes. Can't justify buying pants if they turn a pink orangish color after only washing them a couple times. I followed the wash instructions. Even washed them separately, inside out, and in cold water and they still changed colors after about 3 times of washing them.
Best 511 Pants!!!! Will be buying all of em.
The pants look and feel good. I don't like the way the pockets are. It would also be nice if the inside waist had a rubber lining like other 5.11 styles so your tucked in shirt doesn't pop out.
