      Second purchase of these pants. Liked the first ones so I bought more. The service to get these products was great. Got them faster than was quoted. I will buy from you again.

      Reviewer: Charles Barnes

      12/4/2017

      Have rec'd product and meets all the reasons I purchased it for. The extra pockets for clips is 3.5" wide and 6.0" deep. these pockets are also off set of normal pockets so billfold and clips do not have to overlap each other. The front and back pockets are normal size and will hold whatever you usually place in the pockets. Very happy with overall product.

      The best pair of jeans I've ever owned. From the true to size label to the stretch of the fabric to the placement and size of the pockets, the whole thing. Can't beat these jeans for the price, I liked them so much I bought three more pair, one in every color and style.

      Reviewer: Rick Mason

      9/21/2017

      I have to say I was skeptical again, this is my second time I purchased pants from here, and these are the best feeling pants I've ever worn. They were very light feeling, and the comfort is unsurpassed. I was actually shocked just after having them on for 10 seconds. I will be buying a couple of more in a couple of weeks.

    • Pretty Damn Good!!!
      Reviewer: David Almazan

      9/15/2017

      These pants fit very well and have a bit of elasticity to them which makes them flex with movement. I have read of the color rubbing off but to date I have not experienced it. I am between a 34 & 36 waist, 6'2', and the 36'x32 work great for me. The ONLY gripe I have is the front pockets are too shallow. I wish they were a bit deeper. Other than that I recommend giving these a shot. I hope they fix the pockets and make more colors soon.

      Reviewer: Dan Lann

      9/15/2017

      Pros: Good fit, look good. Material is nice, tough but with that little bit of stretch. Very comfortable. Good quality. Cons: Pockets!! The pockets are just too shallow, front and back. I'm not talking about they should be extra deep pockets for EDC or anything, just normal depth like Levis or Wranglers. A wallet barely fits in the back pocket with out sneaking out, and if you sit you're at risk of it falling out. If you put a cell phone back there (iPhone size) it's at high risk of slipping out while sitting. The front pockets are the same, much too shallow. The watch pocket on the right side is nice with good depth, could hold a magazine. Nice if there was one on the left too. Suggestions for the 2.0 version (I'd buy these again if the 2.0 upgrades were done): Deeper pockets and add a watch pocket (second pocket) on the left too, be nice for a magazine.

      The pants fit very well. The flex material is very comfortable and is easy to move around in. The extra mag pockets are well placed to be accessible while not visible. I liked them so much I bought 2 more pair.

    • Sizing is off
      Reviewer: Leonard Michaelis

      9/6/2017

      I like 5.11 pants as I know they are sturdy, functional and affordable. I was excited to check out these jeans. However, while the quality was great, the fit (especially the waist) was totally off. I have ordered a 34x34 and was a little afraid that they might end up being tight as I'm somewhere around 35" around my waist. But once I put them on I realized that the waist was way too large. The inseam is right on, and because of the stretch material I would not suggest to buy longer.

    • Overall very good pants - needs a couple of change
      Reviewer: Pete Webb

      8/25/2017

      Overall the pants are very good. Well constructed out of good materials. I really like the material the inside of the pockets are made of and they are well stitched and seem very durable. I bought this jean because it has numerous pockets, including special ones on each side of the back that are perfect for magazines/knives etc, AND because the pants overall do not look military. But I carry a Kahr PM9 pistol (similar in size to Glock 43) in right rear pocket in a leather holster made specifically for the gun. It is a VERY tight fit but works as long as you have a shirt un-tucked over the pocket. Otherwise the gun is very visible from behind. It would be perfect for these size guns if the rear pockets were at least 1/2" deeper and 1/4" wider. Otherwise all works well for me for my everyday concealed carry.

      I have thicker thighs than the average straight leg pant wearer. I hope they will come out with a pair of these in "loose" fit!!

    • Very comfortable
      Reviewer: WFan

      5/30/2017

      Have had the slim version of theses for a few months in 36x32 and love them. Bought the same size in this new straight leg version but the straight 36x32 are much longer. To check I went to a local 5.11 store and found the same difference in slim vs straight. I tried on 36x30 in straight and they fit perfect. So consider that the straight cut may be longer that your normal size expectation and you might want to go down a size in length. Now that I know what size I like, the jeans are fantastic. Very comfortable and a more comfortable thigh/calf fit than the slim version. If you conceal carry, the waist has enough give that you will be ok IWB. Bending over, crouching, driving, sitting in an office chair and going to the shooting range are all comfortable. I use one of the back magazine pockets to hold my phone. Very happy with these jean and are my new favorite pair.

    • too loose/baggy color should be left solid
      Reviewer: Joe Mama

      5/11/2017

      good concept they are a little too loose compared to say a levi 501 in similar size maybe a size down would help. regardless of fit the color is horrible looks cheap, like something a trendy 15 year old would wear the fake fading does not look good. leave them alone in a solid color and reg fit and you have a winner. also front pockets are too shallow.

      5/5/2017

      The jeans are really great and built very well. I just am really dissapoined that these front pockets are so shallow. It's geared towards a concealed carry market who would be pocket carrying, but yet the pockets aren't even as deep as the jeans you can get at Walmart??
