I liked the capri fit better, but still decided against both. The material is definitely durable, but not very flexible. Since they aren't honestly practical for what I would wear to the range, it needed to be more comfortable to wear either working out etc. I think the thickness would be too hot to wear for any length of time in South Texas. I normally wear a small and initially thought the smalls were too small....had to slowly work the pants up my legs (and I have skinny ankles)! The mediums were much better fit in the legs, but the waist band was then way too big. I would have to wear a belt.
I love these yoga pants. I have them in both colors.
pros: very comfortable, sturdy material
cons:Small fits me, but since I'm petite, it's 3-4 inches too long.
NEEDS POCKETS (maybe on the side of the thigh?).
The extra small is significantly too short, and the size small is significantly too baggy and still too short on me. I'm only 5'4", so I imagine that the woman they're designed to fit is a petite small instead of a regular small. It would be helpful if these came in a longer inseam option like the other pants do. I want to like them because they're built so well, but I just can't wear them because they just don't fit.
This is the first pair of 5.11 pants I have ever bought. The idea of a tactical yoga pant is a great one, the design (especially the seaming at the hip and knee) is flattering and including belt loops is a great idea. The material is tough, however, there is little stretch, almost like compression pants, and is causing the seams to rip after wearing only a handful of times. The fit is also awkward for me - loose in the waist but bunching in the crotch area, maybe as if the fit were too narrow, I have to keep pulling them up. I would agree that including pockets on a future design would be a nice addition.
I love these pants, but the are too short and need pockets, at least one or two for keys, cell phone. Please offer in long length, mine normal length seem like Capris...
I just purchased these in black. So far I love them. The fabric is thick enough and tight enough it makes me feel really good. I love the waist band which is thick and supportive but not overly noticeable. I know I could comfortably wear a gun with these wherever I go. Very happy with these and will purchase more in the future. I bought a medium and I usually wear a 8 in jeans. Im 5'4" and 145lbs with thick thighs and big butt. I would defiantly recommend them.
Very comfortable but not practical for move and shoot as there are no pockets. The waist band is wide, sturdy, and does not roll over. Im 5'8" 145 lbs, a medium fit well, but the waist is large. An interior drawstring to adjust the waist would be great. I like the pair I have but wouldn't buy another pair unless some changes are made to them.
These tights have a low rise THUS equating a low, snug ride... When belted and holstered out and you have to move fairly quickly you better be cinched up real tight...
Like the idea , appearance BUT don't like the ride below my real waist line... Had to adjust my holster reach too ... so ... sending them back ...
Love my hubby and he thought these would be a nice gift and fit ... bless his heart... Sorry honey ...
First I want to say that I have been waiting for yoga pants that are heavy duty and have belt loops! I was so excited to get a pair of these,
I do two different kinds of shootings, three gun and defensive shooting.
I have not worn them for three gun ,yet but I can say for rigorous defensive shooting they hold up incredibly well!
I really only have one negative thing to say ,and that is that there are no pockets. I would love to see a small hidden pocket on the inside for something like a pocket knife one on the left and right hip. I was looking at where the seams are and I also think hidden pockets over the butt like those on the Stryker pants would be amazing! Discrete but functional. I like the discreetness of the pants so I personally would not like pockets on the legs but I think that there are ways to incorporate pockets that are functional and discrete.
Other than the lack of pockets, these pants are wonderful!
I was shooting in temps in the 90s with high humidity and despite the fact that they are long, black pants, they did do a great job at keeping me cool! When they get sweaty they are hard to pull up but what pants aren't?
They are comfy and easy to move around in as I was rolling around on the ground and such.
We also did work with the gun where we clear it by tucking the sights behind our knees and shoving it forward, the pants held up through all the times I scrapped my sights across them so they are super durable!
Overall my only complaint is lack of pockets which really hindered my training, otherwise I would recommend them!
Thank you 5.11 for finally creating women friendly pants!
I'm a size 12 and 5'6" and I picked up a large and they fit really well (actually, a little big in the waist that was weird). And they do run short, even on me, but I like them that way.
But yoga pants... That are TACTICAL. How cool is that? AMAZING. And worth it! LOVE THEM.
