5.11 has finally done us women a solid! They are durable, sturdy and dare I say sexy!?! They fit in at the theater, the office and the range. Best part is that they were not designed for a size 0. Now I am waiting on 5.11 to give us a good pair of jeans :0)
These pants look great on and are soft, with good stretch. However, they are supposed to hit at the ankle bone, with boots over as shown. The longs are not really for long legged women. I am, 150 lbs., 5'11'', I ordered the 10 tall and 12 tall to verify size needed and they hit about 2 inches above my ankle bone. After calling I think this the intended fit? In the photos the model has boots over the bottom so I can't tell.... Also the double fabric knee area lower seam hits just at the bottom of my knee cap. Not a good look and not ideal for tactical purposes. Unfortunately I am sending them back. Booo! The designers ought to make an ultra long for women who are really tall... Hint, hint.
I love these fashion forward pants for us ladies. The fabric feels amazing...the pockets are very useful yet understated, and the "regular" does not need hemming...I'm 5'4". So...sizing...it's true to my jeans/slacks sizing. I love that these can be worn in the office and function well in the field. I'm even thinking of wearing them on the weekends out! A+
Felt awesome. I wish they were longer. Tried on longs in the store and they came up above my ankles. I'm 6ft tall so i need length. The knees felt like they were kind of low, but again goes back to the length issue. Would love to get notified if they get made longer.
I have the same problem with all the other pants from 5.11 Tactical for Women - waistband gap in the back. Looks like 5.11 listened to us women with some booty and made a pant to fit us hooray! They look great as everyday pants and don't scream tactical pants. The fabric is unexpectedly very soft, durable, and stretchy. I thought it was going to be more of a denim feel like in the photos.
I'm 5'4" with a 27" inseam. Got the pant in a size 6 with 30" inseam. For once, I will not have to get alterations on the pants! Don't care for the boot cut option when unzipped, the zipper is awesome functionally, but it's ugly as a boot cut. Two front pockets, two front mag pockets, two side mag pockets, two back pockets = eight pockets total. Items stay put in the pockets while moving around. I love them!
I made a video review on them if you'd like to check it out :)
Being a short 5'0" woman I was hesitant about buying these pants due to there not being a petite size but I did and kept my fingers crossed... The fit is amazing! There is a little gathering at the ankle but not too much to look bad. Looks good with short boots, tall boots, tennis shoes even my flip flops and unzip to wear over boots and looks nice and don't drag the ground! Good flex in the material, can wear to the office, school or range and even out on the town!! Will be buying another color as soon as they come back in stock! I wear size 6 and size 6 was perfect fit! A must have in my book!!
these pants are absolutely fantastic! I wear these as pants and they are great pants. TOP NOTCH PRODUCT
Great for curvy women; the waistband doesn't gap. Love the pockets and material. Wish the inseam was reinforced the way the other seams are. Also wished they were in a "short" length. I'm 5'1" and the regular length is difficult to work with low boots, but good for something like ballet flats. I got the green color, which reminds me of a green/gray. Beautiful color.
I usually wear a 10 in the TDU pants for work (no stretch and gaps horribly in the waistband). For these, I was between an 8 & 10 for these, but sized up for to avoid pocket gapping on the thighs (and a little extra room in the waistband would be good for concealment).
