Tough Utility, Everyday Wear
Day-to-day wearability meets purpose-built power with the Maker's Pant. Comfortable enough to wear every day for the foreseeable future and tough enough to last that long. Flexible fabrics and articulated construction keep you mobile, and plentiful pockets provide ample storage.
Versatile ripstop NYCO fabric boasts the best of both worlds, combining the superior softness, breathability, and sweat-wicking performance of pima cotton with the rugged tear- and abrasion-resistant durability of CORDURA® nylon.
Made to Move
Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch keep you moving with ease from pants-on to pants-off. Adjustable two-button tabs enable swift n' simple toggling between regular and tapered hems.
An over sized cargo pocket and a utility loop at one of the hand pockets join the Maker's classic jean-style pocket array, offering plenty of storage options. Mesh pocket bags ensure easy drainage and speedy drying.

I'd like to start off with what Beyond got right with these pants. Thank you for Tiger Stripe - definitely a badass pattern! The cut is modern and not blousy, certainly not like regular BDU pants. I like that they aren't overly tactical with bulky pockets everywhere. I like that they are offered in different lengths as I need the Long size but will still need to have the pants let out for my preferred inseam length. At 6'4" and 180 pounds, I wear a 32x36 and could use an additional inch of inseam. Not something I fault Beyond for at all, though. In fact, I'm glad that they allowed for the inseam to be let out with the generous hem at the bottom, so that is a plus.
Some tweaks I could stand to see are a stretch added to the pant material and smaller buttons used on the front pocket and on the leg fasteners at the hem. The size of the buttons is almost comical and miss the mark for me. I have ordered regular size replacement BDU buttons from eBay and will swap them out. The cut and material of the pants also make for a somewhat restrictive crotch seam for me as well. I don't know why but I was expecting the pant fabric to have some give/stretch to it and it does not (the fabric in the gusset does have stretch and is breathable). The gusset meets the crotch seam under the zipper in a way that limits the extent that my legs can move. I feel it when climbing stairs, exiting the car, etc., and I would certainly be restricted if I were doing things like scrambling/climbing or trying to hop a fence. I would love it if Beyond was able to incorporate a stretch into the rest of the fabric. Lastly, the description says that the material wicks sweat as well and I find this statement to be... meh, it's just fabric. It does whatever 99% of my other pants do when I sweat in them.
To sum it up, I would buy them again and I would recommend these pants to anyone looking at them. I think these pants could be improved by adding stretch into the main fabric used in them and using smaller buttons on the thigh pocket and leg fasteners at the hem.
Living in central Texas, and being outdoors a lot in the summer, breathability is a prime concern for me when picking pants. These do that spectacularly. Light, tough, and breathable make a good combo from these pants. I only have two concerns,
1 the front pockets are too deep, coming from jeans I thought the Jean style poketa would be largley similar, but the depth just hides and allows contents to roll around
2 Make it in tan/kahki! I need these in non camouflage or OD, and a tannish color would make them my new everything pant!
K5 Tiger stripe pants are legit, in both desert and woodland tiger stripe. I’m thinking of getting the M85 now. The quality is great and are extremely comfortable. Mesh pockets are deep and breathable. The front thigh pocket is money for putting your phone in. They’re worth getting!
Buying pants online when it comes to how they fit. I chose poorly, and sized up. Luckily beyond has a great customer service team that made exchanging easy. Definitely buy your normal waist size!
They look and feel like a quality product. I have had them for a week now and worn them almost every day. I have not put them through any sort of hard testing yet but the material and stitching feel of quality. The sizing is a bit off or I may be smaller than I think. I am 6' 3" 195 lbs. I have an athletic build and normally wear a 34" x 34" pant size so I purchased 34 long with these dimensions in mind. The long sizing of the pants seems accurate as they are a bit longer than 34". This doesn't bug me. The waist size though seems more like a 35" or 36" so I have to cinch up the belt an extra bit, not a deal breaker but something to keep in mind. The material dries quickly and is easy to wipe clean with a rag or simply brush off with your hand. Overall I am very pleased after my first week with them and am looking forward to really breaking them in on some hiking, tactical gun classes, and general chores. If you're on the fence about these I would say pull the trigger. Own a pair of high quality pants that look and feel unique. Now go out and tackle the wild.
