The new twill pants fit well and are good for warm weather. But the side side pockets are unusable for the purpose intended. Need two hands to open. So it defeats the purpose of these pants.
I have purchased multiple pairs of the original covert cotton pant and kept going back to them specially in cold weather. What I did not like was the fact that they seemed to wear out very fast. The legs and buttock areas would give out, but I kept wanting them because it was comfortable to wear and all the pockets work well, especially the side pockets. Easy to carry and access a cell phone as well as a pair of mags. Not so with the twill pant. Unusable pockets. Please bring back original design with reinforced material if possible.
I love these pants, but as a Detective. I need a better color variety than just black & khaki.
I have purchased both colors of covert khaki 2.0 pant. These pants are trully excellent. Very good quality and durability. However I would agree with a previous reviewer regarding the available colours. I also think that colours like dark navy or oil green would be great for these pants. Just take that under consideration..
These are great for when I need to dress up but don't want to feel like I'm always at risk of ripping my dress pants.
The pockets can carry a mag and not print much, but really they are nowhere near as large as cargo pockets. The zipper is so small most people won't notice.
Mine machine wash fine.
This was my first set of pants from 5*11, and I wear them still. Purpose built, and built to last, these pants have been through a lot with me. The Khaki style pant allows me to wear it to semi-formal occasions and in place of dress slacks, while the in-seam side pockets are perfect for concealing a flashlight or spare magazine. They are my personal choice when working executive protection or corporate security events. I will say that the crotch blew out, but they lasted far longer than other pants I've worn for work.
I ordered these because I have the original Covert Khaki, and I looked at these due to the fact that the zippers were a little more subtle and it looked like they would not wrinkle as badly. While both are true, these pants are tighter, made of a material that does not breathe as well, and the covert pockets are not tacked down in any fashion, which means that they tend to twist up when walking and that makes it hard to get items in or out.
I like the pants and the fit. But you need to pay attention to the covert side pockets. The zipper often needs both hands to open. The way the pocket is situated there is a good chance when you sit down with the pocket open, things will slide out. Lost some light items without knowing it. (your mileage may vary ;))
These are closer to a slim cut than a regular/loose cut in the waist size. I wear Stryke pants daily and thought I would order the same size....nope, I need to return and see if they will replace with a up size in the waist. other then that they look and feel great
Have 4 pair (36" & 38" waist depending upon method of concealed carry). Inside carry can be a bit tight with a "metal clip holster" due to the thickness of the expandable waist, but leather loops do not present a problem. OWB carry in 36" waist is perfect. OD Green or Dark Grey would be a nice addition to the color choice, otherwise these are my go-to dress casual pants and take an ironing beautifully.
I have two pair of these pants in khaki, and like the fit and features. They are easy to pack, look good, fit well, have nice features... The reasons for the four stars, instead of five, are these: 1. You need to sell them in more colors than just these black and khaki. I needed a pair of navy colored pants and had to buy another style, one that I am not as happy with. 2. The rear pockets are too small. I find myself struggling to remove my wallet from them -an issue that I don't have with any other pants that I own. Other than these two complaints, I am quite happy with these pants.
