    Law enforcement, military and fire professionals worldwide consistently choose the 5.11 Tactical® Shorts for both on and off-duty warm weather wear. The 5.11 Tactical® Shorts come in 6 colors, with size ranges to fit virtually everyone. Known for its signature rear slash pockets and strap, the sturdy, seven-pocket 5.11 Tactical® Shorts are so comfortable and functional, they have become an industry standard. Made of tough, 8.5-oz. 100% cotton canvas that becomes increasingly more comfortable over time, these shorts stand up to the rigors of daily work, play and travel. Known for superior comfort, functionality and fit, the shorts feature a self-adjusting comfort waistband that helps you bend and stretch with ease. Double and triple-needle construction is utilized throughout, plus 48 bartacks in high-stress areas. For added durability we use a proprietary weave that binds in on itself to prevent raveling. We use only genuine, locking-flange YKK® zippers and quality Prym® snaps, both of which are top-of-the-line in the industry. Additional quality hardware is found in the front, where a convenient D-ring holds your keys, or ID. For best results, pair the 5.11 Tactical® Shorts with the 5.11 Tactical® Shirt or 5.11 Tactical® Polo.


    The front pockets are strong and roomy and the inverted pleats on the cargo pockets remain flat until needed for a neat, professional appearance. A narrow thigh pocket accommodates a magazine, cell phone or utility knife. The extra deep rear pockets can hold extended mags, a baton or a 15” flashlight.


    The legendary fit of the 5.11 Tactical® Shorts is a closely guarded secret based on a tried-and-true formula created 30 years ago from its mountaineering roots. The 5.11 Tactical® Shorts are designed for active movement in changing conditions, the shorts perform and look great on individuals of all shapes and sizes. This same superior fit is also found in the 5.11 Tactical® Pant, the 5.11® Covert Khaki and the 5.11 Tactical® Shirt.


    The authentic 5.11 Tactical® Shorts are the only shorts on the market with a 30-year history of delivering quality, functionality, comfort and value. It has consistently stood the test of time worldwide. Accept no imitations or look-alikes; the authentic 5.11 Tactical® Shorts are the genuine article.

    Tough cotton cloth material, lots of useful pockets and belt loops big enough for a web belt.

    The rear slash pockets are far better carrying an assortment of gear. The velcro closure on the pockets are durable.

    Needs bigger pockets for new, bigger, phones
    October 4, 2014
    Bought 4 pairs. These are great, high-quality shorts, but new phones (Galaxy S5 Active, iPhone 6Plus) won't fit in the cargo pockets.
    High quality, good fit.
    As said before, need to increase cargo pocket size for new phones.

    They don't shrink and they don't fade if you wash them in cold.
    Great quality and fit. Heavy duty shorts.
    Kinda expensive.

    The Standard...
    April 21, 2014
    5.11 is "The Standard". You'll pay a premium for them (although, time it right and you'll get a good deal at LA), but these will last you years. Well worth the "investment".

    Great Pair Of Shorts But.....
    March 26, 2014
    I love these shorts and I own few pair BUT there is one negative. I wish they did not shrink so much length wise (about an inch) but cotton canvas does seems to do that. They need to increase the inseam from 9" to 10-11" Or also make longer version like they do with the 5.11 ProTac lite shorts that can be had with either a 9" or 11" inseam. I may try the longer ProTacs but I'm not sure how much I'm going to like the cotton/poly mix.
    The feel of the material, Rugged construction.
    Needs a longer inseam to counter "shrinkage" (the shorts that is).

    5.11 Tactical Shorts review
    August 29, 2013
    Shorts were true to size and color. The fit was very comfortable and I like that the shorts are very durable and will last me many years to come.
    great fit, true to size, durable and heavy duty material.
    the strap across and above the right rear pocket has too much slack, it can get caught on an object.

    I really like these shorts. Nice magazine pocket, good fit, comfortable. I would not hesitate to buy another pair. I also like the reinforced area on the pocket for my pocket knife clip. Plenty of pockets for gear.
