    Covert cargo pants are they way to go if you want to look casual with lots of pockets and not look like you are wearing baggy cargo pants.

    These are my favorite pants for practical wear. Lots of pockets. I am not a spring chicken, just turned 65, but I demand a certain functionality in all of my clothes--long time Alaskan. Only complaint is that zipper pulls tend to come loose after many washings. BTW, wash, then drip dry, otherwise one could find oneself with smaller pants. I carry a S&W .40 daily IWB. These pants are great for carry. I carry 4 double stack pistol mags, 2 in each side pocket located behind the main pockets. I carry daily either a M&P Shield in .40 S&W or a M&P compact in .45 ACP. No problem in terms of a double stack .45 mag in the pocket wells. Photo on right side shows lower pocket partially unzipped to give idea of location. No printing, mags are readily accessible. Front pockets are deep and will carry a lot of . . . stuff. I carry a folding knife as well as the pistol. There are two zippered lower pockets that will handle at least one 30 rnd mag, but not too practical. If I want to carry an AR, I will use the right gear and not worry about hiding a couple of mags in the lower pockets--impractical in my mind. They are comfortable and look fine for casual every day wear. I really like the design of these pants, the waist elastic allows a 40 in waist to wear a 38 in. When the lower pants legs cuff starts to wear, cut off the legs and they make a great pear of shorts, that one can carry a pistol and a good ammo load out without any issues. I wish 5.11 would continue these pants. Yeah, I like these pants.
    ProsGood fit, loose, comfortable Elastic is excellent, allows a 38 to be worn up to 40 without any issues. Good price Very practical Great for concealed carry, allows for 2 ea double stack mags in each front secondary zippered pocket
    ConsReinforced knees would have made these a better work pant Zipper pulls come loose, need a better system--closed loop at the top of the zipper

    Good pair of not overtly tactical cargo pants
    These pants are comfortable and nicely made. They give you the extra storage capacity of cargo pants without being overtly "tactical." The two cargo pockets on the legs and the two extra pockets behind the standard front pockets all have dividers for smaller objects. Zippers secure the cargo and extra front pockets, and velcro seals the back pockets. They have a tendency to wrinkle and there is no teflon or other protective coating, so you need to be careful about staining. Overall a great pair of pants. I have three pairs in different colors and they've become my go to pair of pants.
    ProsComfortable Lots of storage space Dividers in many pockets Zippered pockets and velcro back pockets help secure your gear.
    ConsThey are 100% cotton and have a tendency to wrinkle. There's no teflon or other protective coating on these so you have to be careful about staining. I found the cloth pull on the zippers to be a bit long with a tendency to stick out a lot. I trimmed mine in half.

    5.11 Covert Cargo Pants
    The side zipper pants are a little bit dressier than regular cargo pants and can be worn where those are not considered appropriate.

    Comfortable and reliable
    These pants are not only very comfortable but hold up to wear and tear and very reliable. The look is good and all the pockets are great for concealing whatever you need to hide out of sight. Defenately recommend.

    Love the casual look of these pants. I like the covert cargo pockets but I haven't carried anything heavy in them. Heavy duty cotton wears well.

    Excellent pants for covert carry.
    My favorite pants. Elastic waistband makes IWB holsters comfortable, and the covert pockets are excellent for extra mags, knife, flashlight, pressure dressing and other critical items without any of them showing.
    Pros- Comfortable waistband. - Good looks. - Covert carry pockets are well designed and completely useful.
    Cons- Zippers on the covert pockets are a bit weak. You have to be careful not to break them and the thigh pocket zippers generally require two hands to work. - The thigh pockets are a bit too baggy so that a full mag in the inside pouch tends to bang against your knee when moving fast.

    Comfort and Fit are excellent. Have not had them long enough to comment on durability and color/shape retention but expect that to be at least very good.

    Excellent Pants
    I've used these tactical pants for work for the past 10 years. They are comfortable and handle the rigors of my work environment. I love the pockets that are closed with zippers so that I don't lose small items. I highly recommend them.

    Hello, can anyone tell me how these are sized? My waist is about 32. Also, do they shrink? I heard 5.11 shrink. (yes, I'm hoping they'll be restocked.)
    5 Answers
    I have a few pair of these and they have a good bit of stretch in the waist, at least an inch maybe more. They will shrink If you dry them on high. If I want a pant to fit I get a 29. I get a 30 in these and let them shrink. I still end up with enough room to run a holster with the stretch.

    from TAYLORS, SC
    Been buying 5.11 products before dirt was invented and have had them commercially laundered as well as home washed for 25 years or so. Because all cotton washed in hot wants to shrink, I always washed in cold and dried on medium heat with no shrinkage issues. Commercial laundries often wash in hot and I have never noticed serious shrinking but it certainly could happen. Commercial laundries obviously give them a crisper look, particularly with starch, but you run the risk of them breaking the zippers on the pockets. The covert pants have some elastic built into waist that is probably worth a 1/2 inch or so max in expansion. Doesn't leave much room for a heavy meal or an IWB holster. My impression is that 5.11 covert pants are true to size, but a lot depends upon what you want to do with them. If you're carrying a IWB for a dbl-stack .45 you probably better size up one size, otherwise that extra elastic 1/2 inch should be good for a 32 waist.

    from Kansas City
    Sizing is correct. Elastic in the waist allows for some leeway. Mine have not shrunk. Just follow laundering instructions, and do not use high heat or over-dry. These are the best pants I've ever owned. The covert pockets allow me to carry just about anything invisibly. No idea why 5.11 would discontinue these.

    I haven't found mine to shrink. I have had them for about nine months and they are quite good. They look a bit more like regular pants which can ease people down a bit. They don't look quite so "tactical." I did find them to be quite generous in the seat. Maybe a bit too much so. I really like them and wear them a fair bit for work where I am required to look a bit nicer with out going the full suit route. As, with all 5.11 stuff...good pockets! I'm 34x32.

    I wear a 36 waist which accommodates an IWB. I purchased 36’s and have plenty of room. I do not machine dry them. I air dry them. They go from the washer to dry over night.

    These pants in particular do not have an area specifically for hidden knee pads. You may have the room under them for some thin knee pads.. But the only 5.11 pants that would have the hidden knee pad area would be their tactical ones.. The actual tactical pants have that area. Hope this helps!

    Sorry no the Covert Cargo do not have the knee pad pockets. I have been wearing them for over 7 years and used them for work and now for competition. I love them. I will buy them until they stop makeing them. I normally buy 3 pairs at a time to replace mine. I have 9 sets of pants
