Impeccable design

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Jeff

from Pennsylvania

Though it's now beginning to cool down outside, I used this product often during the warmer weather. It was depended on for remaining cool, and it did its' job when on the job. As a Paramedic, I've looked to 5.11 for their brilliant design and quality. I've relied on 5.11 products and own immense amounts of their products. This is one of many products I will recommend to others, and for those in hot, humid environments, working in the same field as myself, you will not regret this purchase.

On a side-note, the one thing you will notice, is when dealing with blood, you may find yourself backed into a corner aiding a patient or resident in their bathroom, squatting uncomfortably rather than kneeling. If you constantly have knees that are torn up, carry a towel with you to kneel on.

Tailor Made Quality – Superb Fit and Com

From Big Chuck

from Milford, NJ

I bought these shorts last year---I saw them advertised (February time frame) and thought that they would be perfect for me---I was informed that they were backed ordered until May, but knowing the 5.11 Quality/Value I decided to wait. The shorts were fantastic---quality of workmanship, superb, typical for all 5.11 products, but especially the fit---something that I've been trying to fine for a long time, very similar to custom tailored clothes that I wore as a young man in my twenties. The "out-seam" is about 1 1/2" to 2" longer than the industry standard resulting in a custom fit for someone that does not wear "hip huggers". The pants and shorts that I've bought from other vendors are just fabric stitch together----The 5.11 products are as close to "tailor made" as possible----very well made with QUALITY MATERIAL and THOUGHTFUL DESIGN.
Thanks Again for the Generous Out-Seam Design, Chuck

Nice to have a reasonable option with all the pockets and stuff we are used to in EMS Pants available in Shorts now. I'd maybe offer an option on the inseam as 11" for us guys with shorter legs seems a bit long. Other than that- NO complaints at all... same great 5.11 product I've grown to expect when purchasing 5.11.

A great pair of shorts
