First specified by the FBI National Academy as standard training issue; the 5.11 Tactical Pants have enjoyed considerable popularity over the past 30+ years. Known for its signature rear slash pockets and strap,the sturdy, seven-pocket pants are made of tough, 8.5-oz. 100% cotton canvas that becomes increasingly more comfortable over time. They stands up to the rigors of daily work, play and travel. Known for superior comfort, functionality and fit, the tactical pants feature a self-adjusting comfort waistband that helps you bend and stretch with ease. Front pockets are strong and roomy; inverted pleats on the cargo pockets remain flat until needed for a neat, professional appearance. A narrow thigh pocket accommodates a magazine, cell phone or utility knife. The extra deep rear pockets hold extended mags, a baton or a 15” flashlight. Double and triple-needle construction is utilized throughout, plus 48 bartacks in high-stress areas add to the tremendous strength of the tactical pants. The double reinforced seat and knees provide enhanced abrasion protection, and interior knee slots are ready to accept 6mm neoprene kneepads. At the ankle hemline, built-in blousing strap openings can accommodate 500 cord. On the 5.11 Tactical Pants, we use only genuine, locking-flange YKK zippers and quality PRYM snaps, both of which are top-of-the-line in the industry. Additional quality hardware is found in the front, where a convenient D-ring holds your keys, or ID.

The headline should read, "Like the original ...but a little less."
What is happening at 5.11? I've been wearing these pants for about 5 years now, and just ordered a pair in the grey.
The color is good and construction is typically 5.11 rugged. But as my headline said, they took away the small right-hand pocket and made the cell pocket smaller! That little knife and flashlight pocket that used to be right below the right normal pocket is gone. Why?
Also the Velcro-closing cell pocket is so much smaller that my Samsung G7 has to be shoved in and struggled out because that pocket has been reduced about 1/3 inch in width and maybe more in depth. The Velcro flap has to be stretched hard and the phone pushed down in order to get it to fasten over the phone. It fits fine in my pre-2019 tactical pants. What the hell is happening here?
This is absolutely ridiculous. Why mess with something that was essential and keep the stupid stuff nobody cares about, like the useless "tool strap" over the right-rear pocket or the just-as-useless "D" ring nobody uses?
I never thought that my old Tac pants would someday be "from the good old days" but if this pair is typical the good old days lie behind us, which is a real shame.
Wake up 5.11!
So far, the best (and I've now returned 4-5 pair's of various maker's pants) fit I've found (in the 32x30 range) have been these ~ 1) Wrangler Riggs Workwear Men's Ranger Pants (Super good quality, heavy-duty fabric and cut/fit): need to be cuffed once though. 2) Carhartt Men's Relaxed Fit Ripstop Cargo Work Pant (lives up to the Carhartt name, although, not all workwear they make does. 3) Unionbay Survivor Iv Men's Relaxed Fit Cargo (not necessarily a work pant, but heavy enough fabric for light duty: decent fit is the highest compliment & soft. *Dear Unionbay, please get rid of the 1980's style belt that comes with these. It's so retro that Retro itself, when asked, had to check its databases for a remembrance so to call them 'retro'.

They are extremely well built and the rather understated D-ring is on mine, welded so it will never open so I keep my Smart Pass and SIA badges on that. The diagonally-opening pockets are very good for quick access and I keep my handcuffs in one of them - quick access no visibility - if you see my handcuffs, it is because you are going to be wearing them.
The small, long pocket on the left is ideal for pens (two normal, one fne marker for writing on CCTV photographs and a UV pen, along with a UV torch that goes in there as well) and the larger pockets below them are off to one side so I keep my pocket notebook in one of those.
The belt holes will take wider belts (50mm) which takes the Peter Jones Klick Fast dock without mofing around on which I have my two-way radio.
In short, they are well built, last ages, provide you with the pockets you need and are worth every penny. After all that time, I about to order some more.
