I bought this for my latest fuller figure self and it fits as expected and I really like them.
Fit as expected, I like the four hidden pockets- big enough for a revolver, but it'll print like crazy.
I use these pants for work and they wear well, don't fade and are very cool in hot weather.

I live in my old Covert Khakis, but they discontinued them a year ago, to my great dismay. My collection of half a dozen older pants is starting to get weary, so I was interested to see this latest version.

Fabric: the new stuff is significantly lighter weight. The old heavy fabric was quite hot in warm weather until it had been washed a couple of dozen times. While the new version will be cooler, it shows outlines of the stuff in your pockets more easily when you bend your leg or the wind blows the fabric against your skin. Also, the new stuff is a very tight weave. While 100% cotton, it has a slick feel like a finely woven bed sheet. I prefer the "canvas" look and feel of the old pants.

Pockets: they are still nice and deep and square bottomed (very easy to carry a pocket pistol like a P3-AT in a pocket holster), but they have the habit of dumping all the small contents onto the couch when you lie down - coins, keys etc. My old pants pockets did not do that.

Belt loops: the old pants had heavy loops and there was a single fat loop dead center in back, right where my spine hit it while driving. Since I usually wear a fanny pack, which adds additional mass there, it could get very uncomfortable on a really long road trip. These new pants have thinner loops, and there are TWO closely spaced ones in back, with nothing where your bones go. BTW, I am pretty skinny....

"Hidden" pockets: The old pants were truly covert. These are not really - the exposed stitching on the leg pockets yells "TACTICAL!!!" to me. I can live with it, but I much preferred the bland hidden pockets of version 1.

Fly snap: the old pants had two buttons, both of which would be gone by the third washing.

I love these pants! To my eye, they are a bit baggy for "business casual", and there are visible seams where the cargo pockets are sewn in. However, my wife says they look fine and doesn't think they're too baggy, and she's got better taste than I. They are very comfortable and functional, and very well constructed. The fabric is not too heavy for warm weather. The many pockets are great; the sewn-in compartments for ammo magazines will hold all kinds stuff neatly (pens, phone, etc.). A note on colors: "Coyote Brown" is a very light brown, closer to what I think of as khaki. "Tundra" is olive-green.

I ordered 2 pairs of these pants. The first order I kept as I do like the pants. However, I ordered Tundra and the color was OD Green upon arrival. I ordered the second pair with the same color as the first, Tundra, but received Green once again.. The display pictures show Khaki, Green, and Tundra. The Tundra is supposed to be brown, as dipicted in the pictures.
I am disappointed with the difference between what the colors are displayed and what you actually reeive. I sent the second pair back for a refund.

Pants are pretty nice, fit well, sturdy, well made, etc. Problem is they used the worst zippers ever devised by man. The only rational explanation I can fathom is the person who spec'd these zippers is some sort of sadist that revels in the frustration of the wearer cursing the zippers.

Said zippers work just long enough to outlive the warranty and after that they ALL stop working almost instantly. Hopefully 5.11 has fixed this horrendous flaw, but I doubt they have.

The only saving grace with the zippers is the only one that works is the fly. Both the "covert" pockets and the cargo pockets suffer the innevitable failure.

If you are like me, and live the secret agent lifestyle, traveling the globe to save the world from evil - these pants are for you.
Let me take a moment and walk you through the awesomeness of these must-have trousers:

* There are pockets. Lots of pockets. I carry a multi-tool, my phone, USB Thumb Drives, a "Blow-out Kit", Keys, Wallet, Flashlight, Sometimes a handgun (with extra ammo) and other assorted items. When I am traveling with my girlfriend, she is always like "Can you put these things in your pocket?" Absolutely, my fair lady!
* Tough material, but breathable. I wear pants all year round, and even in the hottest days of summer.
* Snazzy! These pants will pass for business casual, because all the pockets are nicely hidden. Throw on a polo shirt, some boat shoes, and a wide brown or black belt - nobody will think you are a stealthy ninja. They will ask where you got these pants. Normally, you might say "If I told you, I'd have to kill you..." But in this case - tell them they are on Amazon.

One other thing worth noting - I wore the same pants for an entire week. I will be ordering 7 more pairs. These pants rule, they are stain resistant and they don't show dirt like other pants. I am a messy eater, the problems just wipe away.

The design of these pants is very clever. They have massive amounts of cargo space, but the pockets are discreet and primarily hidden internally. I find that they offer discreet storage, and the durable cotton is comfortable in all climates.

My criticism is that the cut of the pants is simply too billowy. The design may necessitate some extra room for the internal storage, but these pants are cut for someone carrying greater padding than the waist-size would suggest.

Unless you're an Olympic sprinter or an NFL lineman, I recommend that you try a size smaller than you might normally order. If you can get the right fit, however, you're in for a treat. Practical, comfortable pants that are great for traveling.
