I bought 2 pairs of these for a trip through the Jungles of Nicaragua. These rock!!
The stretch material allows me to hike, climb, and relax in actual comfort. The freedom of movement because of this material feels almost like your favorite worn out house sweat pants and doesnt restrict anywhere.
Because of the heat and humidity of Nicaragua, I feel that moisture wicking ability of the shorts is supreme. There were times when we ran into a small lagoon with fresh crystal clear running waters from the volcano that we had to take a dip to cool off and rejuvenate. The moisture wicking and drying nature of the fabric made my shorts a dual purpose shirt!
Having this many pockets proved to be a great deterant from Street Market would be pick-pockets. They just don’t know what pocket any of my crap is in. The fact that I could carry everything in the 4-front pockets makes carrying all our valuables a breeze.
My only grip would be the lack of non-“tactical” colors, other than blue and gray (which I have). I hope that 511 pursues more colors and possibly mild pattern designs.
The addition of a possible hidden pocket would eliminate the need for a hidden money/document belt. The possibility of making a detachable hidden pocket would be amazing... but I realize it’s a far stretch and would take away from the purpose build and original intention of the product.
A hastey review from Nicaragua with extremely limited internet! Lol
These shorts are just phenomenal! They don't scream tactical........nor do they even look like something 5.11 produces! Very discreet, functional and perfect for shooting matches in Arizona in 100 degree + heat!!
Liked them so much bought a pair in every color for daily wear other than shooting also!!!
Mag pockets also holds large cellular devices and super stretchy/comfortable
Great range of motion.. great for any activity.. need more colors(NAVY)⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Best shorts I've worn, got the gray ones and they look good. Made out of cool material that makes them look professional. The material is also water resistant, super comfortable, durable and has an ass load of pockets. Plan on ordering a second pair in black soon.
I finally found a short that is flexible and breaths like a gym short, that looks good to wear literally anywhere and still has the belt capability for concealed carry. I may just order the other three colors right now! Seriously, if you want a pair of shorts you can wear for anything, these are it.
These are amazing! Working out, running or just every day wear. These shorts are all around durable, functional & look great. You almost forget you're wearing pants.
