I recently acquired a pair of these second hand in AOR2 and I have to say they are the best combat pants out hands down. Plenty of pocket space. Reinforced where they need to be. I love the zippered leg areas with the mesh. Great for keeping dry on long rucks.
I understand the actual “customer” of these may use them in a much more aggressive environment, but for my needs, these pants are the bee’s knees. Quality material throughout, extra rip protection where it’s needed, no stray threads or mucked up stitching. What initially drew me was the color, ie theyre tactical pants that don’t scream “tactical pants tactivate!” My use for them is camping in the spring and late summer/early fall in Michigan, and range use throughout the spring/summer/fall here in Michigan. They keep the legs relatively cool in the heat, and allowed me to get in the water and “drip dry” for even more cooling off. Ample pockets for carrying notebook, compass, phone, deck of cards, pocket knife, chemlight, bic lighter, and a hank of cordage. There’s no butt pockets, so you’ll have to find a new spot for your wallet, or just keep it in your bag, like I do. They also roll down into a fairly small roll, perfect for eking out every inch of space in your backpack. For the price, it doesn’t “seem” like you’re getting much, but they’re one of the only brands I know of that offers repair/replace warranty on manufacturing issues for a reasonable length of time. Strong, capable, and sure, these pants will almost always be rolled up in my bag if I’m going out the door for a trip.
You can find the same material for a fraction of the cost. These pants are priced out of reach for most folks, it is insane to think a price like this actually can get you more.
From Baghdad to Marrakesh to Oslo the Beyond kit (skin out) was superb in significantly disparate environments. It all fit into a small duffel/rucksack and was easily cleaned. All of our operators will be similarly kitted out in the future!
