    It's the little things...
    I've had two pairs of these pants for just over 3 years. Until now they were designated hiking/camping apparel (and have held up extremely well), but having just discovered some of the little hidden features, I've moved them to everyday pants and ordered 2 more pairs (with a nice discount from LA Police Gear). The thing that prompted this was the discovery of the knife clip covers on the top seams of the cargo pockets. I'm left handed, and I have lost 2 knives from getting the clips snagged on my seat belt while exiting the vehicle. No other pant to my knowledge (including other 5. 11 styles) has this feature. It is a small detail, but has proven invaluable to me. That in addition to the rugged construction, comfort and versatility make these the best pair of pants I've ever owned. They also make concealed carry a pleasure, having just enough room to keep the boys liberated while sitting with a firearm inside the waistband. Perfection exemplified.
    ProsKnife clip cover Durability Versatility Comfort
    ConsWould like to see the knife clip feature on some of the less tactical looking styles from 5. 11, but not really a mark against these pants.

    Very pleased
    I was very pleased with these pants. I've gotten 2 years out of the first pair I purchased wearing them one day a week for the whole two years. I am very tough on pants and put them through the ringer when it comes to wear and tear. They still maintain the water beading quality they did when I first wore them. The color has faded a bit (charcoal) over the time I've had them but no other issues with them up until I found a hole worn in the seat of them a few days ago. Overall really surprised with the quality in them. I would recommend them to anyone and will be ordering more over the next couple of months!
    ProsDurability in day to day work. Quality in manufacturing. Comfortable all day. Cooler than typical jeans or Carhartt/Dickies type pants. Not to bad during outside work in cooler temps. Flexibility in material (has some give or stretch (flex tac) )
    ConsColor fades over time (charcoal) even though I figured it would fade. Pricey unless you can get a promo code or catch a sale. Briars or limbs will cause holes or snags in the fabric. If your in rough areas covered in under brush you may experience damage to them.

    Great pants for work
    This was a reorder for me. The features that I love about this style of the 5.11 is the stretch material, and the tunnel waist. I found that with my boots on the 32 was still a little long, but compared with other styles that I have ordered and tried on, this pair is the most comfortable.

    Not a true size

    5.11 Stryke Pants
    The 5.11 Stryke Pants that I recently purchased are comfortable and fit well. Bought three pairs and will by more in the near future. Read some reviews complaining of color spotting after washing but wash in cold water as recommended and I dry on a hanger to avoid heat damage. No problem with color spotting on any of my pants. Enjoy the quality and fit.

    Great pants
    This is the fifth pair that I've purchased through LA Police. Love the fit and look. Most comfortable pants I've ever owned. Only four stars for some small issues. The thread used in the waist band scratches you until you've worn/washed them a few times. Two pair still do it after a few months. The colors fade pretty fast. Especially at the seam edges. I only wash in cold water and on permanent press or delicate. No fabric softener.

    Great fit and functionality
    Four pairs now... found the first pair for $2 at a thrift store after becoming disillusioned with the other 5.11 pants I'd been buying at the uniform store... crotch hanging halfway down my inner thigh; not ready for the Old Geezer look just yet. About to give up on 5.11 and move to a different line, but saw these in a waist size 34 and thought "Why not?" Amazing, appropriate, contemporary fit! For $2!! I was sold, so I waited until LAPG had a sale and tried another pair... perfect. The fit is correct for anyone with an athletic build, around the waist, the butt, the flanks and thighs. Comfort above all else, and still looking good. No problems to date with any color spotting, and I hope to NOT have the problem. I now have four pairs of these and can recommend them without hesitation. Yes, a steep price that we are forced to pay, but why pay $15 or $20 less and get some ridiculous-looking Old Geezer drawers that I hate to wear?

    Best pants you can buy
    I have owned these since they first came on the market. I wear them for duty and as my everyday pants. They are the most comfortable and best fitting tactical pants i have ever owned. I have never had any fade or get pink spots on them after washing. I own 6 pairs in multiple colors. My edc items fit perfect...knife, flashlight, bu phone power brick and cord, wallet, cash and coins, pen, several small tools, ect....and my pants dont print any of it. Water rolls right off and i stains come right out. They breath and are cool in 90 degree heat and wind proof and warm at 0 in the winter. The flex is amazing...i can go over a fence and feel no pull or hinderence to movement. I have yet to get a tear rip or snag in any of them. Apex pants are super comfy too but dont have load out config like stryke.

    5.11 Stryke
    I have have been wearing 5.11 TacLite Pro pants exclusively for at least 5 years now and have really liked them. I couldn't believe how 5.11 could justify a pant which cost over half again as much as the TLPs. I purchased 2 pair of Stryke pants over a month ago now and I'm sold! So much so that I ordered another 3 pair the other day. The comfort and fit are superior to anything I've worn, the pockets are better positioned for use and the two large cargo pockets are really three pockets in one. Meaning, the inner width of each pocket is divided into two, half width pockets with the outward segment of the pocket at full width. This arrangement makes it quite comfortable to carry a wallet in the outer portion of the pocket with either my Tanker lighter or Large Fenix flashlight in one of the half width pockets. Due to the half width pockets, the lighter and flashlight are retained in their vertical position, enhancing comfort by not turning sideways. Additionally, it allows quick extraction of each device from their designated locations.
    Pros* Superior comfort! * Perfectly arranged pockets. * Superior fit (Adjustable waist and less baggy pant legs compared to 5.11 TacLite Pros). In other words, I don't have to grab my Stryke' at the knees and hike-em-up before sitting like I do with my TacLite Pros.
    ConsThe only real Con I can think of pertains to the adjustable waist... since the adjustment aids in the comfort of the pants it also necessitates the use of the button closure IN ADDITION TO the snap closure. The TacLite Pros also have this but I never felt the need to utilize this feature. (I wear a Crossbreed Aries gun belt 24/7 so I have custom retention of my waist while I'm CCW or not) * The only other (minor) thing I can mention is that I prefer the surface pocket on the upper left side of the TLPs as opposed to the slotted, covert pocket in the Stryke pants to carry my Leatherman tool. However, the surface pocket would look weird on the Strykes.

    Easily stained/bleached
    The pants as far as function go are great! Zero problems with wear and tear, they stretch, they have all the right pockets in all the right places. I washed these exactly how they instructed and I don't use my own washer to bleach other clothes so there was no bleach in my washer. First time washing them, they came out with pink spots in various places as if they were bleached. I would think for an $80 pant, they would hold color better than they did. I still use them for work but the pink spots on brown pants just look terrible. Not the first person this has happened to... if anyone's going to give you a guarantee, I can guarantee that.
    ProsStretch where they need to Great pocket depth and placement Ample pockets Durable from a wear and tear standpoint
    ConsColor bleaches very easily, how, I couldn't say but it's happened to me and others. High price point, mainly for the name...

    Not worth the money
    Unfortunately I'm forced to wear these pants as part of my uniform. I own 8 pair. Only can wear 4. Color bleached out in spots on the rest. I have blotches of pink on 4 pair of $80 pants. I washed them per the instructions with cold water tide. And ever time I pull them out of the washer new pink spots. I started washing them in baby detergent. Everything I've ever owned 5.11 has been junk. If you are going to charge so much. Make a better product.
    ConsThe dye is cheap and worthless.

    I just purchased my first two pair of Stryke 5.11s recently. I don't have any experience with their APEX pants but have worn nothing but 5.11 Tac-Lite Pro (TLP) pants for a number of years now. Where the TLPs are baggy through the legs and not very forgiving in respect to stretch while bending etc. the Stryke's fit much better in the legs (more tapered than the TLP) and flex very nicely and comfortably. Although this isn't a direct answer to your question I hope that some positive information can be derived from my experience. All in all, the Stryke is a superior product in comfort, fit and looks. And they should be because they cost quite a bit more than TLPs. JMO

    I personally hemmed these to about 30 inch inseam. I wish LAPG would offer them already hemmed. The cuff opening is now about 19 1/2 inches. Pretty wide. I think a tailor could narrow them down a bit from below the knee patch. My guess would be to about 17 1/2 without looking too weird. I really like these pants.

    I have a 38" waist and carry inside the waistband. What size should I order? Would I order the same size in the TacLite pant?
    1 Answers
    5.11 typically includes enough elastic in their pants so that you can stretch up to 2 sizes with their pants. If you are actually a 38" waist, that is, with a measuring tape that's what you measure to, than I would say a 38" should still be fine to order given the amount of additional room you would have. If you are going by pant sizes that you have in the past purchased through 5.11, than you may need to go a size up.

    from Oakland, CA
    My iPhone 5 with protective cover (not a cover as big as an OtterBox) fits into the internal pockets inside the front cargo pockets of the 5.11 Tactical Stryke Pant and inside that front pocket (where they show a knife clip sticking out)-- and, of course, in the other external pockets as well. I imagine that if I had a bigger protective cover on my phone, then it might be tight or not fit at all into the internal pockets or the front pockets. I spend the extra money on the Stryke pants because the stretch fabric, belt loops, and pocket configuration is far superior to other 5.11 pants. Their other pants are okay if you're going to the range, doing yard work, or kicking around, but for everyday and operational use, 5.11 got it right with these pants.

    I would go with the 36" waist. These pants are true to size and if the 36's are slightly loose at the waist, wear a belt. My opinion, I'd rather have a slightly looser waistband than a tighter one.

    Unlike the Tac-Lite pants which shrink like a dry sponge after about 25 wash/wear cycles, I would order the 34" waist in the Strykes, which don't shrink. I'm a 34" waist but the 34" Stryke pants were too large, while the 32" waist was perfect and the elastic in the waist will stretch a little over about 10 wash/wear cycles, too. Also, I have a 34" inseam but ended up liking the 36" inseam since I wear a mid-top boot (not a high-top duty boot), and I hate seeing socks when I sit down. They bunch slightly while I stand but overall, I think it's a better fit for outdoor working conditions.

    My waist size was 34 but gained some weight and I ordered my pants in 34. The pants fit me good without being to tight on my waist. I needed some motivation to loose some weight so I ordered the pants in 34... I will order more as soon as I can afford it, they are awesome !!!!

    Personally, I would go with the 34". I think that you would be fine with either size but I feel that they run just a tad bit large.

    I would recommend you order a size 36, The elastic waist band keeps the pants snug, I initially wash them when they are brand new, and after repeated washings, some slight shrinking but nothing dramatic to tell you about. I'm a waist size 32 and use a size 32 with no issues as being too bulky or too tight for duty wear. For me they seem true to size. I've been using them for about a year now at work and for leisure. The fabric wears very comfortably. One of the best fitting 5.11 pants that I have used.. Regards

    34", the waistband expands close to two inches if needed. I think you will love these pants, a little more expensive than tac lites but much improved pockets and other features.
    on May 13, 2014
    36" waist. The pants will shrink over time. I am a 32 and I wear 34s. The 32s fit perfect new but after a few washes they are tight.

    I would go with a 36 at least. If not a 38. The waist is flexible but my experience with 5.11 and other tactical pants is when I sit down the waist tends to dig into my stomach. If you have a slim or athletic build you should be fine with a 36. If you think you may put some weight on I'd get the 38.

    I tried these on in a store. I normally wear TRu- Spec in a 40 but they were too big and I had to go with a 38. They did not have my length, so i will be ordering here soon.

    What is Flex-Tac?
    1 Answers
    Flex-Tac™ is a revolutionary fabric utilizing proprietary fibers and developed exclusively for 5.11 Tactical. The lightweight, breathable, poly/cotton ripstop incorporates mechanical stretch yarns, meaning the stretch and recovery of the fabric is achieved without the use of spandex. As a result, the breathability, color retention, and durability of the Flex-Tac is superior to other cotton/spandex fabrics currently in the market.

    from St. Charles, MO
    I am slim with a measured waist of between 31 - 31 1/2. I buy 30" waist 5.11 pants. The taclite pro pants are a little snug but the elastic makes them work. The Stryke pants on the other hand fit larger on me. I buy the 30' and still have room for an IWB holster. I have two pair of Stryke pants and one pair fits even larger and I had to double check to see if they were 32's. I feel if I tried a 32' they would be too large. The flex-tac really is great and I would go with the size below then the size above my waist size (if in between sizes.)

    Do the pants shrink after washing?
    13 Answers
    No, at least not that I can detect. The flex-tac waist may get a little tight but as soon as you wear them you will be good to go. I wear these exclusively for my work. They are my favorite pants to wear. I especially like the cut of them. They wear more like chinos. Very comfortable. One thing I did notice, if you dry them in the dryer the waterproofing is intact. I hope this helps.

    I didn't notice that they did at all after washing, but on the plus side the waist has the elastic adjustment. So if they did it's not noticeable and the legs have give and didn't shrink.

    I usually wear a 32 length in the traditional 5.11 pants. A friend of mine who has these pants suggested I go up to a 34 length becaue he said they run a little shorter than the traditional ones. Is this something that you all have delt with before? Any help would be appriciated since I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and returning them would be a pain in the ass.
    1 Answers
    We have never heard any complaints of these pants being too short. I have looked at all 120 reviews of these pants on 5.11's website and out of those 120, only 2 or 3 reviews said they were too short, but there were also 2 or 3 saying they are too long and the rest of the reviews said they felt true to length. If you are a size 32 length and you are on the verge of needing to go a size up, you might want to get a 34, it would be better to have pants a little bit too big than have a pair a little bit too small.
