I’ve worn my fair share of Beyond clothing and am a HUGE fan. They’re definitely my favorite/go-to outdoor and tactical gear, with the best feature being that they’re made here in the USA. So when I saw that they came out with this new imported line, I was a little hesitant and apprehensive to be honest. I was concerned that they’d be sacrificing quality to cut costs, however after purchasing these pants, I can assure you that was not the case. These are a spitting image of my all time favorite A5 Rig Light Pant, just a little more civilian friendly without the internal knee pad slots. Finish and quality are identical. Material feels and looks the same side by side. Same YKK zippers and DWR finish, great for walking through morning dew, tromping through the snow, or light rain. They keep wind out, are abrasion resistant, and are killer for all weather, rain or shine depending on layering.
My only complaint and the reason I am leaving 4 instead of 5 stars is the sizing is a bit different than my other pairs of Beyond pants. I’m 5’6” and 150lbs and wear a small in Beyond’s pants so I ordered the same size in these and found them to be a bit longer in the legs and waist. Thankfully I carry AIWB and wear a belt so it feels the waist out a little better.
Other than sizing, I’m looking forward to these performing the same as their US made counterpart.
2XL t shirt size was a little smaller than expected.
