    Good fit
    August 28, 2015
    Many reviews said to order the next size up, which I found to be unnecessary. They fit just like any other size 34 waste. Now I will be ordering several more. The pants look good and are acceptable busoness casual at my work place, yet are as comfortable as my BDU's.

    Great Pair of Pants (especially for the money)
    August 28, 2015
    Very nice! I love the durability, design and value of these pants. At a quarter of the cost of 5.11 or TruSpec you can not beat the value. The only complaint that I have is the back pockets have buttons. That may seem trivial, but all three pair that I have ordered I have torn a pocket button off. If they were velcro or open access pockets it would be better.

    Longer than size indicates
    August 27, 2015
    Good pants but two issues. I ordered 2 pair size 40 x 34 and these pants, two different models. This model are a good 2 1/2 inches longer than the Elite Operator in the same size. I will have to hem the pants or send them back. Second, the cargo pocket closure is difficult to open quickly as the pocket is so baggy.
    Well made.
    Oversized length, baggy cargo pockets.

    Very durable pants
    August 26, 2015
    Great fit and comfortable. Easy opening deep pockets. Tough material and all seams are very tight and secure. The small hangers for clip-ons are a nice touch!

    Great tac pants for value!
    August 24, 2015
    Originally purchased 1 navy blue for duty use and one coyote for casual use. Wore the coyote the day after getting them for a hike. Was very impressed with the fit and feel of the pants. IMHO they are comparable to the feel of 5.11 pants. These pants, despite being $20, do not feel cheap at all. The coyote colour is really nice and these pants are very comfortable to wear. Once I wore the navy ones I duty for a few shifts I immediately ordered 6 more pairs for both casual and duty use. The navy colour matches my uniform perfectly. As far as pockets I absolutely LOVE the front thigh knife pockets. That was a major selling feature for me on these pants. I love carrying my knife in these pockets as it remains accessibly with my holster on my belt! The blousing straps are garbage. I hate whatever material they used. I wish they were a lace or paracord material. I replaced them with paracord, which was a pain, but now they are much much better. For $20 it is a minor gripe that can be corrected with a little effort on my part though. I am hoping the durability is there but for $20 if they last a year they are worth it!
    Fit (order a size up due to elastic waistband) - not too baggy not too loose. Finish. Comfort. Colours (look sharp). Material. Excellent value. Pocket layout.
    Wish the rear pockets were Velcro instead of buttons. Wish the fly button was a push-type like the 5.11. Wish the "lapg" logo was subdued. Wish the side cargo pockets had dividers like the 5.11. Wish the blousing straps were lace or paracord. Would like to see these made in woodland, desert, and multicam (arid and black) colours as well.

    Living up to its claims.
    August 20, 2015
    I am very hard on clothes and this is the first piece of clothing I have bought online because I like to feel things before I buy them. I only bought them because I heard great things from several sources. I must say they perform very well and I will be buying more. They are well thought out in their design and well made with durable material.

    Great quality
    August 19, 2015
    The pants run a bit big. I bought one size up to allow for concealed (IWB) carry. I have to cinch my belt quite tight even with the holster in place so the pants don't droop
    Great quality and price
    Run a little big in the waist

    Second try with these pants
    August 15, 2015
    Reviews say they run small so the first pair I ordered was the next size up from the 36" waist I normally wear 38". These where way to big even with my pistol IWB, I ordered these in 36" and received them today, to small and uncomfortably tight with same pistol IWB. The quality looks good, the first pair had no labels on outside of pants, these have LA Police gear patch sewn in, don't care to wear pants that have the word police on them. I keep looking.

    By RB on July 5, 2013
    Do you have any plans to offer these pants in a Charcoal or Grey anytime soon?
    on July 5, 2013

    Both charcoal and brown have been added and they should arrive in November 2013.

    By Bob on February 6, 2013
    What is the fabric weight please? Its not mentioned anywhere. Thats very important for some people.
    on February 6, 2013

    The fabric weight of these pants is 6 oz.

    By Travis on February 28, 2013
    Are the length of these pants accurate. Do i need to order a size longer as a size bigger in the waist.
    on February 28, 2013

    There are no reviews on our site that state the length being too short. There are a few saying the pants run a little long, so you will not need to order a longer inseam.

    By alex on March 27, 2013
    do these pants have slotted pockets inside the cargo pockets for flashlights or spare mags so they dont bounce around in the cargo pocket?
    on March 27, 2013

    The cargo pockets in these Operator Pants do not have slotted pockets inside them.

    By don b on July 9, 2013
    do the pockets button or have velcro?
    on July 9, 2013

    The pockets have button closures.

    By Dane on November 10, 2012
    Are there other pants that are siminlar to sizing as these? So I can judge which size I should get?
    on November 10, 2012

    Order one size bigger than what you would wear in Levi's. Or, if you measure your waist size order one size larger than that, as the measurements on the site are when the elastic is FULLY stretched out.

    By Carole Newell on December 7, 2012
    Here's my question: why are you not offering this special in the women's sizes? We love these pants too! I personally feel quite slighted that you left all the women out.
    on December 7, 2012

    We do not carry these pants in women's sizes.

    By Rex Murray on June 28, 2013
    What is the difference in fabric weight between these pants and 5.11 taclite pro pants?
