I recently purchased the Stryke pants at my tactical store as I already have 2 other pairs (black and khaki). Because I already knew my size I did not try them on in the store and was extremely disappointed when I put them on for work to find that they were significantly tighter than my other pairs. This fit actually interfered with the practical use of these pants.
I need to say that I absolutely love my other 2 pairs, but am disappointed to now own an ill fitting pair for this price that I cannot practically use.
The Stryke pant is so comfortable. They fit well and are light and stretchy. I love how they are water resistant, I got rained on and the water rolled right off my pants. I highly recommend these pants!
I had a terrible time getting a pair that fit. I ordered my normal size, which was too tight. I ordered the next size up, which fit beautifully, so I ordered another pair in a different color. Those were easily an inch smaller and sat a lot lower on my hips. I had to wear them because it was 2 days before I was leaving for training. The size difference was annoying because it meant my holster and magazine holders were a good inch lower on the one pair which would affect my draw and reholster for a little bit. As far as the comfort and quality of the one pair (khaki) I love them - 5 stars. But the fit of the second pair (storm) rates only 3 stars.
I ordered a pair of these because the pants I'm issued at work do not fit me. I am pleased with the fabric and workmanship. They look very nice on. Thy would be perfect if they were a little more fitted at the waist. Every time I move or bend, I have to pull them back up over my behind. I wear a belt, but since the legs fit fairly snugly, and the hips and waist are looser, they just metrically gravitate downward. The crazy part is that this is normally the opposite of how pants usually fit me. I'm built slim and very straight.
The Stryke pant is my favorite because it really fits your body. The TacLite pants are a more loose fit with wider leg and the Stryke is more form fitting. These pants fit good, feel good and more importantly, LOOK good. You want to look sharp in your uniform and these pants do that. I've been crawling around on floors, out in the cold, in the stifling heat, and this is the only pant I will make the investment in because they are that good.
I love the fit of these. Much more flattering than the tactical pants I bought before. I'm 5'1" and ordered regular length pants and they were just right. Not too long like I was afraid of them being since it's a common problem for me. Definitely going to buy another pair :)
Over the past 5+ years, I've had 5 pairs, still have 4, about to order 2 more, gave away a one, because I believe that everyone should have a pair on hand. I'm a former LEO wife &, instead of wearing his BDU's, this was the next best bet. I wear these pants to hike, daily wear-anywhere, to walk my dogs (pockets for everything needed), you name it, they're my "go to pants" - if ever an emergency were to happen. Overall, they are very durable, the elements beads off the fabric, allows for 4-way stretch, repels animal hair, never been torn by the claws of my large breed dogs and are overall durable. I wear these pants hard, in any weather and are worth 80$. The only issue is the waist to hip ratio, without wearing a belt, the waist has a huge gap, if you have a smaller waist to hip ratio, thigh ratio hasn't a thing to do with it, at least for me, yet is NOT a reason for me not to own many a pair.... love the pants.... Thank you 5.11!!!
I love these pants! My husband dragged me into the store when we were on vacation in Vegas, I was hesitant but thought I'd humor him... Well my husband was right . These pants are amazing. I did find the sizes a lil wonky. I would normally be a size 6 regular (I'm 5'6 and 130lbs) in most woman's clothing places. But these have a little stretch to them. I ended up with a size 2 long. I found the crotch part in the regular length a bit snug and I didn't think with my work boots on they would be long enough.
They fit snug and form fitted, which I like. Compared to my usual work cargos issued to me, which are like wearing a potato sack. My duty belt fits lower on my hips than usual, which took a bit to get used to. But overall these are super comfy, they move with me, and look amazing on. They feel durable on, and after a few rough nights on shift still look brand new.
Love the fit of these pants. Bought two pairs in February and I wear them 5-6 days a week and have worn through the crotch seems on both pairs already. For $80 a pop I had expected them to last a little longer. Yes I am blessed in the thigh area but really not to the point where I should wear though a seem in less than 4 months.
Okay so I ordered these in Tundra thinking it was a brown color. It arrived today and looks just like the TDU Green pants, I double checked the invoice and the plastic bag they came in and both say Tundra, but it doesn't look like the picture, they look more green than brown. Other than that the fit is good, in these I ordered a 16 and it seems to fit well, I've ordered both 16s and 14s in the past, 16s have more room 14s are tighter but look better because they are not as loose. I get the regular length and length is good.
All in all I still recommend the Stryke pants, but beware the color of the TDU green and Tundra as they look the same when they are in your hands.
