I am a small petite woman and found these true to size in a 2 to normal clothing sizing.I have some 5.11 pants in a 2 but they are somewhat too loose so I was afraid these would be the same, but they are not. This is important if carrying your firearm with a belt. The length is perfect also.plenty if pockets for mags, cell phone, etc. Fabric is lightweight with some stretch and cool for the hot weather of Arizona. I am sure to get plenty of wear from these.
Great shorts for the range and daily wear. They do not scream "tactical" attire but are 100% functional and thoughtfully designed for range wear. I ordered a size 4 which is similar to my jean size. The slight stretch in the material along with running gusset truly make these shorts top-notch. And pockets, so many well-designed pockets!
Wife wanted some 5.11 clothes after seeing some of mine. She prefers these shorts over her other tactical ones. They fit excellent (size 4) and she has commented how comfortable they are to do daily activities in often enough I thought I should leave a review.
Bought these for my wife after contacting 5.11 to verify size in relation to the tactile pro shorts. Not much help from them so we ordered a size 8 versus her normal size 6 and are glad we did. The shockwave shorts run small. Otherwise my wife likes them very much. And as most ladies would agree more color options on all women"s clothing would be nice.
