Best shorts I have ever owned!

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Kira


I love these shorts so much I bought one in every color. Wish there were more colors! Really comfortable, useful for work and play. I wear a size 2 in these, the Cirrus pants and the Strike pants. Love them!

Too short

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Elena


I got these in black, size 4. The fit is perfect, but 6" inseam is too short for long legged person. The shorts are really nice, but on someone with long skinny legs they don't look right, unless you are 18. I could wear them for jogging or biking, but in my opinion they are a bit too short for the range, for me anyway. Otherwise, they are true to size, and fit is awesome, the material is lightweight and loops are great. Unfortunately, I will have to return them... hence 4 stars.

My new favorites!

From Kelly


Instantly my new favorite shorts - just got my first pair, and am about to order a second ... I wish they came in gray.
I wear 5.11 pants every day for work - size 6. Accidentally ordered size 8 in these, and they fit just right.

Perfect shorts!

From Denise


I am a small petite woman and found these true to size in a 2 to normal clothing sizing.I have some 5.11 pants in a 2 but they are somewhat too loose so I was afraid these would be the same, but they are not. This is important if carrying your firearm with a belt. The length is perfect also.plenty if pockets for mags, cell phone, etc. Fabric is lightweight with some stretch and cool for the hot weather of Arizona. I am sure to get plenty of wear from these.

Great shorts for the range and daily wear. They do not scream "tactical" attire but are 100% functional and thoughtfully designed for range wear. I ordered a size 4 which is similar to my jean size. The slight stretch in the material along with running gusset truly make these shorts top-notch. And pockets, so many well-designed pockets!

Great shorts

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Brett


Wife wanted some 5.11 clothes after seeing some of mine. She prefers these shorts over her other tactical ones. They fit excellent (size 4) and she has commented how comfortable they are to do daily activities in often enough I thought I should leave a review.

Size matters

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Alan


Bought these for my wife after contacting 5.11 to verify size in relation to the tactile pro shorts. Not much help from them so we ordered a size 8 versus her normal size 6 and are glad we did. The shockwave shorts run small. Otherwise my wife likes them very much. And as most ladies would agree more color options on all women"s clothing would be nice.
