I had bought a pair of pants from the medical campus for EMT training, and as soon as I put them on I knew I needed something else.
I found these pants online and took the plunge, buying two pair. Wow. They fit perfect and feel like they've already been worn, in a good way. I got 34-34s and I'm 6'1", 205, and like I said, they fit perfect. The length sits right where you want it with a pair of boots on. I'm definitely getting more stuff from these guys. Thanks 511.

I have used this product for

  • Over 2 years

I've been an EMT for 4 years and these pants are the gold standard for EMS pants. I own four pairs, work full time city EMS and these pants have yet to let me down. I don't like wearing a whacker belt and these pants allow me to carry my essentials comfortably (Several pairs of gloves, shears, pen, gum, wallet.) On a similar note I think the number of pockets is way too high. I can't think of many things I would want to put in the lower leg pockets. Also, the rear pockets are crazy deep. Deep enough for almost any radio although I personally would rather clip mine to my belt.
Another positive is the material wicks away blood well and rain extremely well. As long as you don't stand in a downpour for an extended period (which does happen sometimes, oh well) you can simply wipe away the moisture with a towel.
Great in the summer and as far as winter operations go, I would suggest investing in some thermal tights or something similar. You won't freeze in these pants but you won't be sweating either.
Lots of little features including the double belt loops for keys/ID and internal pocket dividers let you know that 5.11 has done their due diligence.
I recommend these pants to anyone and everyone who plans on working EMS for any period of time. Worth the money.

I use the product everyday. I found that these brand of duty pants did not fit well and I did not like the depth of the rear pocket (my wallet was in the back of my knee). The material appears to be of high quality and comfortable out of the box. Unfortunately, these pants will sit on a shelf and never get worn as I do not like the fit.

Where to start? The EMS service I work for supplies three pairs of these to full time employees. These are by far the best pants I've ever owned. They're more comfortable than jeans. There's a ton of pocket space. They don't crush your jewels when you crouch. The inside of the waistband grips your shirt, keeping it from coming untucked. They're warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and they dry quickly. I have worn these pants four nights a week for two years and put them through hell, and they're still going strong.

I bought these pants after my issued pants didn't fit the way I wanted them to. I'm a pretty big guy and needed more room in the thighs, which is what the 5.11 Taclite EMS pants provide. I also like the scissor loops on both sides, even if you dont have shears in them the loops are handy to keep a pen or O2 key in the pocket without losing them. These pants are also very light making them ideal for summer wear. in summary, these are the best EMS pants I've had in 3 years in EMS.

I am a current EMS student and have not used these pants in the field but really like the quality of the pants and and looking forward to using these for daily work operations. The stretch in the waistband makes these pants very comfortable when doing a lot of bending. Waist size feels true to size I am 6' 155 Lbs and have a 32" waist so I purchased the 32/34 and am very happy with the fit. Plenty of pockets and the option of slid in knee protection is nice.
