On to the negative. I do love these pants, I think I've made that clear. Now it's time to explain my 3-star review. These pants are expensive and I can appreciate that, happy to pay it. You can see the wear with each wash - the material looks great upon purchase and just starts fading to garbage. Followed washing instructions to the letter EXCEPT that instead of LOW heat I used EXTRA LOW heat for a short amount of time and then hung to dry for remainder.......for the price, the material should still look great. It only took a 2-3 months for me to wonder what I paid for.
On another note.......and not related to the reason I chose 3-stars.....the material stains extremely easy. Sounds silly. Same stuff I get on my Wranglers or Dockers......comes right off with a little bit of Shout........not this material, anything that touches it becomes ingrained it seems.
I love these pants enough that I could live with the negatives if they were just cheaper. For the price, the negatives I mentioned shouldn't exist.
the stretch is nice, and the leg width is good. not too baggy like many other pants. they are a little heavier than I was hoping/expecting. Otherwise, the pocket arrangement is good, i like the pocket knife cutout on the hand pockets. I like the rear pockets better on these than the tac-lite. They look a little more normal, and I never use rear pockets anyway. The tac-lite slanted rear pockets look ridiculous (granted they are larger for quick dropping random stuff in on the go, but I hate ass pockets and hate sitting on things. I carry a minimal wallet ("band-it" wallet and it fits in the front slit pocket nicely.
One of the pairs i received had a piece of velcro with stitching already falling off.
EDIT: I ordered another pair... Every pair of these has a different quirk/defect. The pockets are not the same size between different pairs of pants, the elastic on one pair (left side only) does not stretch at all, another pair arrived with stitches holding velcro strip already unraveling and the velcro strip falling off. Inside the hand pockets there is a corner of material folder over and sewn, that corner pokes out inside the pocket on all of them. I feel this will eventually come un-sewn.
When I first put these on I immediately bought another pair. The stretch fabric feels rugged but also very comfortable. All details are top quality, from the belt loops to the double button fastener on the waist.
- The two standard pants pockets are shaped well. Makes it easy to get into even when wearing light gloves. The shape is perfect for holding a clip pocket knife.
- Stretch material is durable but flexes when I need to move around and not be constrained. You can kneel, squat, etc with ease.
- Durable. Extra knee fabric. All sewing looks double or triple tough at the joints.
- Many other very useful pockets. Two "pleat" magazine-sized pockets on the front are also convenient for my phone or anything else I don't want moving around. Was pleasantly surprised that the cargo pockets also have two sleeves inside for magazines. You can use the cargo for misc gear, magazines, or both.
- Length. I am tall, so great to find 36x36in size.
- Color: I ordered the green pair here, but I also own a khaki color. The khaki looks really good in just about any type of clothes. The green is of course a bit more work appropriate.
- Belt loops. substantial and secure. Big enough for a 1.5in web BDU belt.
- Extra knee material is not annoyingly apparent.
- Plenty of room for thighs to feel comfortable without being baggy. Crotch isn't long and allows you to wear them high enough to keep good mobility. Superb proportions (for my body, I suppose).
- Two ways to (simultaneously) fasten the waist. A button and a snap. Keeps it nice and secure with a backup should one fail.
- When you have a knife in your pocket clipped to the corner (where it conveniently wants to be) it makes putting your hand in your pocket for warmth or to grab something uncomfortable. If I need to do that I just move the knife to my back pocket or one of the magazine pockets. The standard pockets are the perfect spot for a knife, so slightly annoying that it comes at the cost of comfort when putting hand in pocket.
- Can be a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for (these are high-quality). I found a khaki pair for about $65 at my local store. I didn't want to spend much more than that so I went with the green color, which is a less appropriate for things like dinner parties (compared to the khaki color).
- I bought two pair, and on one of them the "pleat" magazine pockets are a bit wider (maybe 1/4 - 1/2in). Not a big deal, just means that if I get used to putting certain items in one pair it may not necessarily work in the other.
Other Misc facts and thoughts:
- Velcro on cargo pockets and back pockets. works well.
- Flaps on back pockets.
- The cargo pockets aren't huge, which I like. Means that if you have a few small items they won't bounce around too much. The are located well above the knee which makes them easier to move when loaded. Just big enough to fit an Amazon Kindle (keyboard) and shut the velcro without deforming the shape.
- Fits over hiking boots/big shoes well.
- Many pockets useful for airline travel so I can keep each document or gadget, etc
What I don't know or haven't tested:
- Fire resistance
- Haven't put them through rough wear (yet)
- How well the rip-stop (haven't had a rip yet)
- How well they wash
My favorite pair of pants when I need to get stuff done. Brings together so many factors of a good pair of useful, comfortable pants.
