Tactical Pants - What Choices Are There?


I've ignored one aspect of my "tactical" gear. Probably the least interesting prep item you could buy. Pants. Not that one needs to buy special pants, but having a couple pare of loose fitting combat pants would be very useful. I don't mind dropping fair money, but if your suggestion is $120 a pair you need not bother. I appreciate your input and suggestions.


Lots of good "outdoor" pant options that work just as well as "tactical" pant but don't make you look like a weirdo if you wear them day-to-day.
Rail Riders, Kuhl, Outdoor Research, Mountain Hardwear, etc.
If you're gonna get your full-on tac pant game on, best just bite the bullet and fully commit to a set of Crye.


I like the Vertx Phantom Ops. They have pretty standard pockets unlike the 5.11s with the weirdly deep back pockets and the silly drag handle. Also, no velcro. I think they cost around 60 a pair and you can get them on Amazon.


Try the Propper Brand of tactical gear pants. Galls offer several styles and multiple colors. I was issued and wore their Uniform Tactical Pants as well as their Men's Duty Cargo Pants.
I am still wearing some of these tctical pants 5+ years. Propper is also a verified contractor for the US Military.
