I received these pants free from my work, so I shouldn't complain. BUT they are terrible! If you are shaped like a women, these do not fit well. The waist is too low and too lose, while the thighs/butt are too tight! They also run a little short. I'm 5'7" and got a regular, should have got a long! Anyways, rant over.
I love these pants and own several pair. I think they are true to size. I have a slim body, and they fit perfectly. They hold up great, and I can hardly tell my new pairs from my old. I wear a gun belt with them and have no issues. Please don't change them, ever!
I followed the reviews and bought a size up, like some people recommended doing. I bought a size 2 instead of a size 0 and it's embarrassingly too big around my waist.
Normally wear a 12 with a bit of breathing room, but these were a touch snug even right out of the package. Hate to think what would have happened after washing them. Will go up one size. Also, why don't you put the actual INSEAM LENGTH in the size charts instead of a height range? I'm 5' 9" tall, so went with a tall size. Bad move: the inseam is something like 33". I need 31", so will give the regular a try.
Ladies go up a size or two so many complaints and pictures of these pants ripping in the thigh and crotch these are work pants and should be comfortable to bend,squat and stretch without the worry of your pants ripping. I have the Stryke,Taclite,Taclite Pro,Twill PDU class B and I just ordered the new Fast Tac Urban don’t know how the last one will fit but I ordered all in the size 20 and they fit my butt and waist the thighs are comfortable but not too loose. I think the model in the 5.11 videos pants are too tight I think it makes women feel they should be skin tight these pants don’t have that much stretch to them and the video for the stryke and the tactical pants looks like she can barely walk in them. Length I’m “5” 5.5 and the Regular length in all my pants are great they work with boots and are fine with my gym shoes. The Twill Class B’s are unhemmed so I’ll have to get those to the dry cleaners to get hemmed. I also wanted to make sure with washing and drying the pants wouldn’t shrink so far the Strkes still look like new with a couple washes on Permanent Press for about 4 min and dried on low. I have a big butt and hips I don’t mind ordering the size 20 I like good in them and my but is not smooshed and I can move freely in them.
- durable material
- useable pockets and well placed
- fit for women with bigger thighs and material is too tight to use pockets
- waist band fit and low rise waist ? Why do you have to make it different from the men’s? Needs to have a thicker waist band to be more comfortable for belts and carrying gear. Low rise...I have to keep pulling my pants up. Very annoying at work on a project..
- sizing was small...also annoying. I wear a 12 in most jeans right now. And I tied on a 12and 14 in this pant. Looking at size chart I am a 18 or XL ...that sucks.
I tried on the men’s 34x34 similar pants and they fit awesome! Please help be the change for women who need these pants for their jobs, out door sports ,and want a true work pant vs a “fashion” pant. A lot of us prefer higher waist and a better waist band. Also most real and older women need more room for their theighs and butts ...just the way it is out here in the real world.
If you want more details. Please just email me.
I will be using the men’s pants for now.
I noticed that dog hair and lint stick to these pants so bad, love the color and the design of them but with the lint and dog hair sticking so bad I have to use sticky roller a ton of times kinda a pain because its every time I wear them and at the end of the day they are covered in hair again they also show dust and dirt too
I work in Environmental Law Enforcement and I wear the Stryke Pant as my everyday duty pants, and so far these have been the best pants I've worn on the job! I am 150lbs athletic build, 5'7.5" without my duty boots on, and am usually a size 8 in most bottoms. I bought size 8 long as the regulars were way too short in bare feet, let alone with boots on, and the longs were slightly too long. I got my first two pairs hemmed, but I regretted it, so my next two pairs I left as is and they work just fine with my boots on. The 8 is a bit big on my waist and legs/bum, but for on the job I prefer that, but if I was looking for a more fitted everyday pant I could have sized down to a 6 long. The quality is great, I work in the bush a lot so these pants have been proven to handle rough use, and to be incredibly rip resistant even when getting really caught up on barbed wire. I've had two pairs for 2 years and another two pairs for 1 year, and all four pairs are still in great shape for wearing them 5+ days a week. And ladies, I'm talking not even any pilling, thinning, or ripping has occurred with the material where the thighs rub. Only thing I noticed was that the colour faded faster than I would have liked, but after the initial little bit of fading they have stayed the same colour. So after wearing them day after day for the last 1-2 years they have definitely proven to be a great pant, I highly recommend.
Yeah, if you lift weights or have any size to your butt and thighs, these are NOT for you. They are great quality, but definitely designed for skinny women. I have a 28" waist, and had to get a size 12 to even fit over my butt and thighs, and the fit is not good. No matter how big a size I tried on, the waist just kept getting bigger and the legs/butt got no better. So I have pants with a huge waist, and as soon as I put anything in the pockets, I can barely move in them. Not very tactical.
So ladies, if you like to squat, do not bother with these pants- in any size.
