I don't often take the time to write reviews. Kind of felt compelled in this case though. I've had great luck with 5.11 bags, gloves etc. And decent luck with the 4 pr of boots I've owned. Their pants are another story. The TDUs are tough, but almost too much. They are quite stiff for the first dozen washes or so and don't breathe overly well in warm weather. My biggest issue is the sizing. My Jean-cut Tacticals and Taclites 32W fit with room to spare. My Ridgelines are a 34W and are snug. Medium TDUs I can't even get done up. Larges fit in the waist but are supposed to fit a 36-38W and are too roomy in the thighs. 5.11 really needs to figure out their sizing regardless of how many different factories produce products. A 32 inch waist is a 32 inch waist. Might be fine if you're a weekend paintballer or airsofter. But if you need them for your job look elsewhere.
I'm not a little guy but normally wear a 36-38 waist pants depending on what they are. And I stand 5'9" so naturally I went with the L Regular pants. The elastic waist is stretched to the max and still pretty tight and the length is incredibly too long. So I'm not sure whether I say they run too small or too large. I'd have them hemmed but then I'd lose the drawstring at the bottom, which I suppose is no big deal, but that only solves one issue. Guessing I maybe need to try the next size up and in a SHORT length. I will say, though, that for my application, they've held up great. And the inner pockets for knee pads works well.
I went to the 5.11 store the other day and just couldn't believe that I couldn't find a pair of these that fit properly (and I tried multiple sizes and lengths). I have several other styles of 5.11 pants and they all fit according to the size chart. However, these MultiCam TDU Pants just didn't. The Mediums were perfect in length and leg size, but the waist is at the limit of the elastic. The large had a good waste, but the legs were like parachute pants (I don't really dig the overly baggy look). So I ended up with Medium, but will probably have to have them tailored so that the elastic waist isn't uncomfortable from being stretched to the limit. I still give it 2-stars for overall quality, but wish the waist sizing was like that of the 5.11 Stryke Pants.
Based on the size chart, I ordered a Medium, but they barely fit. They are sincerely tight for a 34 waist. Choose large if you are 34
This pants fit
Perfect in every way. Comfortable and has extra padding in places. Matches perfectly with my TDU Rapid Assault Shirt and my technical vest. True to its sizing chart. Just wish it was made in America.
I am 5' 9" tall with a 33" waist. I ordered the Large Regular and it was much to long. The double knee started on my shin. I reordered in a Large Short and it is absolutely perfect. The waist size is perfect for a 33" to 35" waist.
Very nice pants, I wish they offered better MultiCam shirt options. Something similar to the Reece would be nice.
I use these to harvest everything from wildlife to plants and trees, I cut wood and live as much as possible in rough areas of my region, the upper midwest..
these pants are the best I've ever owned, they took a beating and still look like new, no rips no tears and kept me warm even though they were soaked... great choice to have (luckily) stumbled upon.... glad I bought them...
These pants are built really well and comfortable. They are rugged and make a great year round pant that can be worn in any type of weather.
The one suggestion I have when ordering these is just know they run a little small. Since these pants aren't size specific they have an elastic band that fits a range of sizes. This is only an issue if you are right between two sizes like I am.
Size 32" pants usually fit me fine. Waist wise I measure closer to 33-34". Therefore, I decided to order Medium pants in a regular length. When I got them they fit but were a bit snug. I debated on keeping them but decided to order a size large. I thought the large size would be too big but they are actually very comfortable. They fit fine and are a little loose but I prefer them to the smaller size. Just keep that in mind when ordering these. The length is perfect and not an issue.
