    They'll rub you raw, in spots.
    They're sized about right and have a good overall fit. But everywhere there's stitching on the inside, it flat rubs you raw. After a couple of hours, you're ready to come out of these pants. I gave them 3 stars because they're sized right and look good. Someone will get a good deal on mine at a local consignment store. Spend a few more bucks and get good pants.

But, they are hanging in there and so am I! Too bad they discontinued the operator pants WITHOUT ELASTIC. Oh, well. Life goes on.

    Not a Fan
    Stitching is strange on these pants. They have a very odd fit that is uncomfortable. The rear pockets are so tight you can barely get a wallet in them. The rear pockets also have buttons, which is rediculous. Have you ever tried to un button back pockets in the field with one hand ?...Its not easy. Leg pockets are to snug to. Size wise, they may run a tad small on the waiste, as they were much snugger than the urban ops pants I have.
    ProsZipper works good
    ConsStitching not done to contour with the body. Uncomfortable.

    I work for an Animal Control agency for a County in Georgia. Our Chief ordered all of us some of the Operator Tactical Pants in OD Green. They all came with tags saying the fabric was protected with Teflon. I have managed to splash bacon grease on the front of one of mine and cannot figure out how to get it out. I assume the Teflon is a factor. I have tried two different stain removers which would normally take care of grease on other clothing, but have had no luck with these tactical pants. Do you have any suggestions?
    4 Answers
    My tried and true favorite product is a bar of Fel s naptha soap. Get the grease spot wet, and scrub with the bar. Rinse, then apply more soap and then put your pants in the washer.

    Well, that's a new one for me. I usually try something like Dawn dish washing liquid and let it soak in and maybe scrub it with a small brush before laundering. I also have gotten stains out with peroxide and baking soda. Not sure if this will work but worth a try.
    on March 2, 2018
    from chico, CA
    Dawn dish soap and baking soda. Scrub it in, let it sit overnight, then wash like normal with your laundry. Grease sometimes needs warmer water to loosen fom fabric. Do not put in the dryer! Hang to dry to be sure the grease stain is out. If it has been there a while, you may need to repeat the process a couple of times.

    2 Answers
    Not sure what that means in your mind, it's different for different people but these pants are very roomy in the crotch, hips, rear end, legs......all over. Plenty of room from top of waist to bottom of crotch. They're even more roomy than military BDU's. Since they have the elastic waist band, consider ordering a size smaller than your normal waist. I wear 34 jeans & 5.11 pants, I ordered the 34 waist in these & they were a tad too roomy all around. I exchanged for a 32 waist & now they fit perfectly.

    I am about to re-order some of these LAPG Operator Tac Pants w/ elastic waistband. I like all the pockets and the color variety (and the price!) I would say they are definitely NOT short rise. I would LOVE to see these available in a short rise. To explain for LAPG, here's what he's talking about: The "rise" is the measurement from bottom of the crotch to the top of the pants in the front. These pants are probably intended to be worn at the waist. I have extra padding around my waist, so my pants ride better on my hips. When I put these pants on in the morning, they are pulled all the way up, the crotch is resting where it should be (touching my crotch!). Then I put on my paddle holster with a Glock 21, and a paddle carrier for handcuffs and magazine. When I start walking, the pants slide from my waist down to my hips. The crotch also slides down. Now try to step up or run or squat with the crotch about 1/3 of the way down your thigh, the bend in the pants isn't where my leg bends anymore! With a short rise, the distance to the top of the pants is shorter, so the pants naturally ride on your hips, and the crotch is where it should be, so running and bending are not restricted by a low hanging crotch. Unfortunately, a tailor usually can't adjust rise on a pair of pants. It's very expensive because they almost have to remake the pants. I recently bought a tuxedo and short rise pants were available and they really make a difference in mobility and comfort. SO, LAPG, please look into offering short rise tactical pants! Thanks for sticking with this long-winded answer.

The 44 waist in the Urban Ops would probably give me the leg room for comfort but be way to big in the waist. If I have read the other reviews and questions right the Operator Pants will be smaller in the waist due to the elastic.

    The urban ops pants have only one front cell phone pocket (which I don't use). They do not have a flap over the rear pockets. They don't have the D rings in the front. Other than that they look the same. I like them both but prefer the Operator tactical pants, which are always prices attractively.

    How baggy are these pants? I'm looking for a slimmer fit pant, and the last recon pants I ordered almost looked like parachute pants.
    3 Answers
    I like the fit though me personally would have preferred a bit baggier but these are fine. The waist band seems to be fully extended at my 38 waist but I don't want to go to a 40 just to be more comfortable. I just need to lose some weight is all.

    The pants are regular fit. Not slim bit not baggy. That being said they run small. I'm a 36 waste in everything but these weren't even close to fitting me. I exchanged them for a size 38 which I have not received yet.

    I usually wear a 36 waist x 30 Long, so I ordered my regular size, they seemed to fit at first, but after two washings, the it shrunk in the waist and the length about 1-inch each, other than the shrinkage and MADE IN CHINA label, I'm willing to try the 38x32 size if LAPG agrees.

    the sizing is kind of weird. i am usually a 30/30, but i ordered these pants and they were way to long and a bit tight. So can i get a few pairs that are 32 waist and 28 leg? save me having to hem the pants.

    I agree. I have two pairs of these pants. I'm normally a 38x32 in all my pants (Levis). When I ordered them, I decided to get the 40x32 because I was thinking I'll be using an IWB holster. That said when pants came the 40x32 fit just right. With no extra room for an IWB. So be warned that these pants run small. If I had gotten the 38x32 which I normally wear, it wouldn't have fit.

    I normally wear a 40 x 32 in Dickies elastic work pants. My son ordered 2 pair of these but they are too small in the waist,needing about 3 more inches in order to fasten them.Because of my stomach overhang being diabetic what would be your suggestion for me to exchange these for. Will they shrink after washing?
    3 Answers
    I recommend ordering a 44 X 32. I have a size 32 waist but wear the 34 X 34 pants because they feel more comfortable. The elastic will make you not notice the 1 inch difference and they should be quite comfortable. (Mine are my favorite pair of pants.) I have not had any of the pants shrink after washing. I wash and dry them on normal cotton settings.

    Do these pants have a plastic or brass zipper? I have had bad luck with your pants with anything but the brass.
    5 Answers
    I have had good luck with these pants. A couple years ago, I did have a problem with one of the zippers, however the last few pairs (all with the plastic zippers have held up well. I just looked at one pair I bought last year, and I notice the zipper(large plastic/nylon or whatever it is) was a YKK brand. They are the best. I just ordered 2 more pairs last week. I have confidence they will work, or I will send them back.

    I just ordered the operator tactical and have not received them yet but I can answer the question. I ordered several pairs of the Urban Ops pants and they do not have the drawstring. One of my co-workers saw my Urban Ops pant and went to order some but ordered the Operator tactical pants and they do have the drawstrings as well as a second small phone pocket (one on each side) as well as two D rings in front. I was equally impressed with his purchase so I ordered a couple pairs of those as well. I have been very pleased and I am looking forward to these additional pants for my work pants.

    Do these run large small or just right?
    7 Answers
    I bought size 30, and I'd say just right, because the majority of size 30 pants I buy are just a bit on the tight size, and so are these.

    They run a little larger than most but I find it comfortable. No need to quickly adjust them before changing stance or position.
    on July 20, 2016
    from PA
    I'd say they run slightly large to right on in the waist and a little short. I usually wear 31" waist, and I was able to comfortably wear both the 30" and 32" waist pants I bought comfortably. I normally get 32" length, but I felt that these were a little to short at 32" for me. I preferred the 34" length.

    The pants run small. Normally wear levis in 36 x 34, ordered the same size expecting to have additional run with the stretch pants. Pants fit on a 36 waist by using the stretch. Not a lot of rum for IWB. ordering 38 waist to see if this allows for extra stretch room for IWB. Wife said they look good if i want to keep them for when i do not carry. Not sure when that would be?

    I am 6' tall and weigh 200 lbs. I have been wearing 2 pairs of these for a few months now. I really like the pants. I normally wear a size 36 in dress pants and in Wrangler 47MWZ jeans. These tactical pants fit a little tight even with the elastic waist. No way I could carry IWB in these.

    Are the legs or inseem i guess u can say striaght or kinda wide from the thigh are?
    1 Answers
    I find them to be baggier than jeans or dress khakis, but definitely less baggy than Blackhawk brand tactical pants. I have used these Operator Tac Pants as uniform pants and for range work and camping/hiking, and there is room to move. If you're looking for a jean cut, or something slimmer looking, these are not ideal. If you're looking for something with room to move, but doesn't look like a tent, these might work well. One thing I've noticed is that the inseam seems a little long for the measurement. I have a short inseam... 29" is perfect for me, and the 30' inseam pants have to be hemmed.

    I ordered both pair and found the urban ops to be more comfortable. As it says on the site, they measure when they elastic is fully stretched. There is quite a bit of elastic on the operator tacticals. Ive worn them all day and ended up with elastic marks around my waist at the end of the day. I think its too much elastic. The urban ops has less.
