My tights just came in the mail and I am so stoked about them! The fit is great, the fabric is amazing and I love the style. I can't wait to wear these hunting, running, hiking everywhere else!
After one time of washing these pants, on a delicate cycle and by themselves, they came out frayed along all of the seams. Since they were under warranty I sent them back and was told by customer service that the fraying should not have happened. Received the new pair, wore them under normal use, washed them on the delicate cycle, and received the same result. These are too expensive of a pant to come from a company that is known for their quality for this to happen twice in a row. As a long time customer of 5.11, I would love to see them rectify this issue.
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 ...
