Ammo Clip Pocket is Smaller
The ammo clip pocket is now too narrow for my small iPhone (model 5S). Very disappointing. It used to be the same width as the 511 original pants.

Heavy Duty Work Shorts
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
Bought 4 pairs. These are great, high-quality shorts, but new phones (Galaxy S5 Active, iPhone 6Plus) won't fit in the cargo pockets.
ProsHigh quality, good fit.
ConsAs said before, need to increase cargo pocket size for new phones.

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

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.....
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.
ProsThe feel of the material, Rugged construction.
ConsNeeds a longer inseam to counter "shrinkage" (the shorts that is).

5.11 Tactical Shorts review
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.
Prosgreat fit, true to size, durable and heavy duty material.
Consthe strap across and above the right rear pocket has too much slack, it can get caught on an object.

5.11 Tac Shorts
I have several pair of these shorts and will keep buying them. The fit is great and they wear like iron. Really comfortable and you can go commando without any issues.

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.
