Fashioned after our traditional 5.11 Tactical pant, the new 5.11 Taclite Pro Pant features a lightweight poly-cotton ripsotp fabric and a fully Gusseted crotch that allows for full range of movement. These pants have pockets located for easy access to all of your gear. An external knife pocket on the right front side gives you easy access to a 5.11 Tactical Tarani Knife. Two cargo pockets are located on both thighs and a magazine/cell phone pocket is located over the left cargo pocket for quick access with your off-hand.

    Cops have been waiting patiently for a lightweight version of our Classic 5.11 Pant and the 5.11 TacLite Pro Pant fits the bill. Made of lightweight 65% polyester and 35% non-fading polycotton ripstop, you have a pant that is extremely functional and maintains a neat, clean and professional look. We�ve also treated the pants with HT Teflon� Wear Resistant Finish for stain and soil resistance to maintain that good look no matter what the daily activity.

    The belt loops are thick enough to support a large belt to carry the weight of a sidearm, cuffs or other equipment. We use only YKK� zippers, Prym� snaps and Horn buttons so that you can rest assured that these Taclite� Pro Pant will last. We�ve also included our traditional clip loop on the front of the 5.11 Taclite Pro Pant for our great traditional 5.11 Tactical look.

    NOTE FROM LAPG STAFF - We have tried on samples of these pants and we can honestly tell you if you loved the 5.11 Original Tactical pant YOU WILL LOVE THE 5.11 TACLITE PRO PANT! The new fast access slit pocket allows for fast access to items that do not need a covered pocket. The lightweight fabric breaths more easy than the heavier 5.11 Original style cotton fabric which sometimes felt heavy or hot on the legs. Our favorite feature is the new Gusseted crotch. It really does allow for more comfort in the crotch area and for far better range of motion for your legs. Overall these pants get an A+.

    Other Reviews: Great Pants!

    "My first pair of 5.11 pants! Bought these POLYESTER/COTTON pants about 3-4 months ago and wear them as much as I can. The lightweight material makes the pants very comfortable as it doesn't weigh you down like heavyweight cotton does. The ripstop blend is pretty durable and so far no visible wear. The knees feature an extra layer of material for added durability and also has a pouch for extra knee pads. The stitching all around is solid and precise. There were no extraneous loose threads that had to be cut. The buckle seems to be fairly sturdy and the adjustments are solid (aka, doesn't slip when you buckle down...I had a cheaper belt that would always work loose). Overall an excellent buy! My only complaint would be that the pants seem to be a bit baggy when compared to a same sized pair of jeans from a retail store, but for me, I'd rather have the extra space for greater freedom of movement."


    Perfect Pant for Hot Weather Work!

    "For those of us that are either required to wear a pant, or simply choose to wear a pant, this is by far the best choice on the market for tactical hot weather gear. I wear these pants every day I am on duty, and usually when I am not on duty. These pants are light and cool enough to use in the Texas heat, and yet professional enough to wear in any situation. I have yet to wrinkle these pants, and the color has stayed just as vibrant and good looking as the day I opened the package. Excellent choice for casual, range, or office wear. Probably just as good a choice for uniform wear if your department allows it."

    Awesome pants
    These are the best tactical/cargo pants I have ever owned, and are well worth the money. I have 4 pairs and wear them everyday. I have put them to heavy use and have had them covered in grass stains and mud, and after a quick wash they come back looking like they did the day I opened the box. These pants are constructed of a very tough, lightweight, breathable material that dries very quickly. They also feature inserts for knee pads and boot blousers if you want, unlike many other patterns. The Tactlite Pro is definitely a well thought out design, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a Tactical cargo pant that will last.

    I'm not sure of the exact fitment, but this is the second pair of 5.11 Tac Lite pants I've bought. I find that they run a little large. As to it working in your condition, I don't know. The first pair of them I bought a number of years ago didn't fit and LAPG exchanged them. Don't know if they've changed that policy or not but they've always been great to deal with.

    I would not order the next size up. It you are a true 32, a 34 might be to big. These pants flex a little, you should be ok ordering a 32. Over time the pants will stretch.
    on September 1, 2016
    from Ashland, Ohio
    You traditionally use the same size waist band for an IWB holster. If however you are at the extreme edge of your waistline, for example you are pushing a 35 waist and are still stuffing yourself into a 34 pant, it is now the time to go to the 36 waist pant. If however you are a true 34 and your britches fit comfortably, there will be enough slack in the waist to accommodate the IWB holster.

    July 9, 2016
    Waist fits relatively well though a bit loose though I suspect it's due to the elastic waist. The pants do run a bit baggy down the legs. I'm in-between seams at 36Wx31L. Tried inseams of: 1. 32' and it was too long as the leg cuffs was dragging on the ground and don't want to roll it up every time! 2. 30' seems good when standing, the pants bunches up when crouched/sitting, exposing some socks, which isn't bad but tells you that a Little MORE inseam would be needed.. What's the better inseam since there's NO Unhemmed version for 36W?
    2 Answers
    I feel your pain, but my daily wear is 6" boot so socks don't show for me. I don't mind them bunching up as long as they don't touch the ground in back. Have you thought about getting them longer and taking them to a local seamstress for new hems? It might cost $10 per pair and you'll get what you want fit to the shoes/boots you wear. If you are near a military installation, there's typically a cheap place right out the gate. My personal issue with these is tightness in the crotch while seated, (that's what they all say, right?) but maybe I should order a larger waist size for days I carry concealed...the holster adds an inch or two. Good luck!

    They are pretty good to use in cold weather; they do a good job of rappelling moisture and the wind doesn't cut through them like with jeans or other cotton based pants. They are also thin/loose enough to where you can wear a thin insulating layer like polypro without your legs feeling like they are suffocating or restricted

I wear them everyday in my landscaping job and when it gets below 25 degrees I add a layer of long underwear to stay warm.

    These pants are made with lightweight ripstop material which is meant for warmer weather use. It can be worn in colder weather but, as some people stated, it's better to wear some warm underwear underneath for warmth. The cotton canvas version is meant for colder weather as it's made from a heavier weight fabric.

    from Columbia, SC
    These pants have the poly/cotton ripstop material so it does make the swishing noises as you move. It should slowly quiet down once it's broken in more and laundered more. The cotton canvas version does not make the swishing noise. Noticed that other brands' poly/cotton ripstop pants also make the swishing noise so it's coming from the material. Some are quieter than others.

B) Is it produced by the same company? C) Does any buyer from BOTH (5.11 and lapolicegear) can share their experience objectively?

    yes these are the same exact pants that 5.11 does offer on there site as well. we are one of 5.11's largest distributors for 5.11 products and all 5.11products do come directly from 5.11 themselves and not a 3rd party. prices do constantly change and 5.11 currently is selling the price of the pants a bit less than Regular MSRP but normally these pants do retail for about 54.99 per pair.

    Since it's made of "Lightweight 65% polyester and 35% poly cotton ripstop" does it 'swish' when you walk? Like the windbreakers of the '90s or corduroy pants?
    17 Answers
    yes, in my experience, you do get some "swish" with these pants.

    I have never experienced the "swish" effect that you are asking about. I wear mine 4 - 5 days a week as a RSO at an indoor gun range, and I'm always on the move and I've never had that sound from the pants.

    These pants make no noise at all. They are very comfortable and far more flexible than regular BDU pants. You won't be disappointed!

    Good question, yes, they do make a swishing noise when walking. Not quite as bad as 80's parachute pants but you are right on with that guess.
    on March 12, 2014
    from Peoria, AZ
    Initially. When it's brand new the fabric is very stiff and rigid and when you walk and move the fabric rubs against itself and makes a raspy scratchy sound. This sound greatly diminishes after about a week of wear once the pants get broken in though. After two weeks worth of wear and cleaning, they wear very comfortably and behave very much like summer weight BDU's.
    on March 12, 2014

    Yes, they do swish when you walk. The sound is comparable to the swish of standard issue ACU trousers (the regular ones, not the fire retardant type).

    No, it doesn't swish. These pants are awesome. I have 4 pair that I bought back in 08 for a Iraq Deployment and they're still great. The problem is my waist got a little bigger.

    I have to say, I love these pants. Very comfortable and wont overheat. In normal movement, walking for instance, I have never noticed it. I had to investigate when I saw your question. When you rub the material together on purpose, it does make a slight swish sound, but not as much as those Air Force PT pants... It feel that you wont be disappointed.

    These pants do make a slight rubbing noise but it isn't too bad. The fabric content and finish is smoother than most Ripstop type fabrics but they're not as quiet as your normal class B's.

    The poly/cotton ripstop material in these pants do make the swishing noise, as do similar competitors' brands that uses similar poly/cotton ripstop materials for their pants though the noise level will differ. It should quiet down once it's broken in more and laundered more. The cotton canvas version does not make the swishing noise.

    Are these pants what you would call "quick dry"? If not, are they "quicker dry"

    Being water resistant they tend not to even get wet in rain or snow but do dry relatively quickly compared to other pants.

    While I don't own a pair of these, I do follow this protocol with all my cloths. Wash in cold with like fabrics. All my stuff is synthetic or 50/50 blend. Then tumble in dryer with NO HEAT once. Then hang dry separated by an inch on either side of each article of clothing. You will save energy (bills will be less), be greener, AND your cloths will last longer and look better and won't shrink. Towels I cook in the dryer. :D

    Well the waist does give a bit but I would go with the size up if your worried about it, if it's to big you get a belt plus with the bigger size allows you to get the pockets easier when the belt is pulled tight

    I have been wearing 5.11 taclite pro pants daily for well over three years, and I can vouch for them running true to size, if not very slightly large for size. The only time I would suggest to order up a size is if you plan on carrying IWB. I hope this helps.

    I'm preparing to purchase 2 pair of the 5.11 Tactical TacLite Pro Pants 38 x 30. Questions: How true to jean size do they run? What length belt will I be getting as I like the belt a little bigger that the 38 pants size?
    2 Answers
    Most of the reviews we have seen for the 5.11 Taclite Pro's state that they run true to size. We only saw a couple that said otherwise. As for the belt, a size 38 waist would come with a Large belt which will fit waist sizes 36-38.

    I find mine to be roomy in the legs, without being grotesquely baggy. Though, that said, I am more slender than bulky. The waist fits as expected.

    A Tundra pair of pants would come with a Coyote Brown zipper. The elastic waistband on these pants would give you enough room to carry a 1911 in an IWB holster.

    5.11 does not make tapered ankle pants since tactical pants are supposed to be worn around boots. Their TDU Pants, however, do have strings at the bottom of the pants that allow you to tighten or loosen the ankle of the pant.

    HELP! I have recently bought a pair of Filson upland pants & 5-11 Tac pants. Both do not fit. I'm weary that your pants won't fit either. I am an older man that normally wear size 40, but buy 42 waist & 32 inseam. Seems the rise has been cut down to where pants ride lower on hip. Ball room is another problem. Seems pants made in Asia built for small people with no ass or tools. Before I order can I be assured the rise is cut full.

    We have never heard any complaints of these pants running too small in the crotch area. Maybe you could try ordering a size 44 to give you some extra room.
