Good for gen purpose use, not tactical operations

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 3, 2013
If you're looking for a pair of work pants or hiking pants that will hold up to general purpose use, these pants should work well for you.

If you're looking for pants that will hold up against the demands of combat use, I don't suggest this.

I purchased these TDU pants for evaluation and potential use by me and a number of others; however, there are a number of issues with this product. 1) though the elastic waistband adjusts to fit a variety of waist sizes, it cuts into your waist to do so. For greater comfort, I'd rather have adjustable tabs on the side to right-size the waist, especially, given the fact that me and my guys will have to endure extended wear in these, 2) the cargo pockets don't function very well. The pockets are secured by two velcro tabs at each end of the flap and if you place loaded magazine or other items of moderate weight in there, the pocket will sag and pull in the middle, and the velcro will begin to give - if there was a third tab in the middle and the velcro tabs were the stronger ones I don't think this would be an issue or, instead, just go w/ the standard button down cargo pockets our cammies have instead, 3) the crotch area, though reinforced nicely, would offer greater comfort if it was a little roomier. Doesn't sound like a big deal but when you're running, crawling, climbing and swimming all over the place, this can be a big deal. The overall construction appears to be pretty good (stitching, reinforced areas, et al.).

I'm a big ...
