Not as good as the STRYKE Pant


From Scott


I love the STRYKE Pant and have several pairs so I thought getting the STRYKE short would be a good buy. The reason I buy the Pant is for concealed carry, and the waistband that stretches out for that is great. The shorts lack that all important feature.

Great but....


From AJ


Ok I own the Stryke pants and love them to death! Naturally, owning the stryke shorts would be a no brainer! I like them but the only problem is it doesn't come with the self-adjusting tunnel waistband, like the pants do. What gives?!

Typical 5.11 Quality!


From Mavin


I have several pairs of the 5.11 Stryke Pants, so choosing the Stryke Shorts was an easy choice. The only issue I experienced, however, was the difference in the waist sizing relative to my Stryke Pants. I normally wear a size 32 in the pants, but had to order a size 31 in the shorts for the sizing to be comparable. Other than that, the quality is what I expect from any 5.11 product.

Great Shorts


From JW


I have bought a couple pairs of these shorts. They are very comfortable and easy to care for. As with the pants they have ample storage and are durable.

I see what you did there...


From PVB


This applies to the entire 5.11 Brand, with this product as a prime example...

5.11 is like Ferrari in that their stuff is foreign made and expensive, much the the nuisance of the 'Merican consumer, but damnit its good stuff.

Great Short


From Nano


We issue these to all of our officer's during the summer months. They can be a little long for the shorter officers but are extremely versatile and hold up well. The best part of these, like the Stryke pants, are how stain resistant they are. I've yet to have a stain not come out. Blood, coffee, and grease all wash out without effort.

Comfortable, Well Engineered, Easy Care-No Ironing


From Daniel J


The Stryke Shorts are just fantastic - I purchased them for the 11" inseam. The Stryke shorts can be worn right out of the dryer - I have 8-pairs of them!

Do you like shorts covering your knees?


From TheWraith


Then, these are the shorts for you. These need to be made available in a 9" inside, such as the TACLITE PRO shorts.

nice, but too pricey


From Ron


I would buy several pairs, because I have purchased 3 pairs of Stryke Pants at the Bragg South Post Exchange and 4 pairs of the Stryke Pants from Amazon, but the cost for a pair of shorts is about $40 too expensive. I love the Stryke Pants, tho.
