I have several pairs of Proper Tactical Pants and these are just like them. The material is treated with Dupont Teflon fabric protector and they really repel water. The front pockets are very deep 9" and nothing will fall out when you are sitting. The front pockets are reinforced at the bottom for a pocket knife. There is a cell phone pocket on the left front 2 1/2" wide x 4 inches deep. with a nylon flap.
The belt loops are 2" wide and work nicely with my nylon Propper belt. There is a metal D ring above the right front pocket which I use to hold my flash light lanyard. There is a small coin pocket inside the right front pocket.
The rear pockets are huge! They are 9 inches deep and 6 inches wide with a velcro tab to keep them closed. There is also a wallet pocket within the back pockets, a nice feature.

The fabric is 60% 35% Poly Cotton 8.5 oz. The zipper is YKK metal with a metal snap closure. The waist has internal elastic which I love. Based on my experience with other Propper products, i know I will be happy with these shorts. Propper pricing is also very competitive.

I have 5 pairs of the Proper tactical pants in 36/36 (in case you couldn't tell, I REALLY like them). These, however, did not fit at all like the pants.

I have a 36" waist, and while the pants are great, these were WAY too tight. The pockets are smaller, and the length is....lacking. I'm 6'4", and these came down about half way to my knees. Also, the overall cut is a lot tighter than the pants. I have massive thighs, and while the pants are nice and loose, these shorts pinch right below the waist.

Not exactly what I was expecting, given the exceptional quality of the pants.

I am a big fan of Propper Lightweight Tactical pants and shorts. They dry quickly when wet, are truely light weight, and fit me perfectly. These shorts have plenty of pockets to use while hiking and are really great to wear just as casual shorts. I get a lot of compliments on the pants and the shorts when I am wearing them as casual wear. They are strong, well made, and most importantly, are worth every penny I paid for them.

These are great tactical or all-around shorts, especially for the price. They're very sturdy and should be quite durable. I love the velcro closures, no more fumbling with buttons on cargo shorts. Nice wide belt loops and a clip for a keychain/carbiner. High capacity back pockets.

Hard to beat at this price, I wear them anytime I'm not at work. I would love it if propper produced a version of these with a gusseted crotch.

I had previously ordered these in Olive, and liked them a lot. My only problem is that I'd prefer them to be about 1" shorter in leg length. No big deal.
I then ordered this pair in Khaki...same design & fabric, just another color.
Unfortunately, this pair has a few problems...puckered stitching on both leg hems, and the left cargo pocket was sewn on crooked.
It's not a 'functional' issue, just looks a bit goofy if you look at it a bit, and a minor irritation to me because it could/should have been done right!
I'm about to receive a third pair in Navy, so I'll find out whether this is an isolated thing or routine...I hope it was a one time deal!

I like Propper pants and shorts. These fit me well in size 34, and I usually like to wear a size 33 in jeans.
Unfortunately, one of the two pairs I bought had a manufacturing defect. The main snap fell apart yesterday (the first day I wore them; just took the tags off!). I contacted Propper via their website (should have a response in 2-3 business days), and I will update this review with my customer service experience.

I've had these shorts for over a year now. I've had the zipper break and the waste snap wouldn't stay closed. I had the zipper replaced and hammered down the waste snap so all is well. I like the shorts but want to try another brand based on these problems.

These are a great shorts. I'm a Probation Officer and wear these most days in the summer; I have over 5 pairs now in multiple colors.
They hold up well; I haven't worn a pair out yet; some with over 3 years of wear. The Teflon Coating does wash off letting the pants pick up stains and water penetration easier as they get older.
I prefer the rear pocket within a pocket over the 5.11's but do prefer the knife pocket location on the 5.11's over the Propper. I carry a firearm on the right side which makes it quite difficult to access the knife pocket which is within the right pocket.
While having gusseted cargo pockets they do lie quite flat allowing a business casual look while still maintaining a tactical capability.
These pants also off the internal knee pad pocket; which can add a great benefit and level of comfort it you could be kneeling often. The 5.11 Knee pads do fit and function quite well in the Propper pants.
