    I got a chance to look at two of the new offerings from 5.11

    The Defender-Flex Jean:

    Everything you like about your current 5.11 gear in a much more casual look. You still retain most of your pockets and comforts.
    Total of five pockets, plus two mag pockets.

    Slim fit = more room to move with a slimmer fit through the seat and thigh. Straight from Knee to leg opening with 15.5" leg opening for 34" waist
    Straight fit = Room to move though the seat and thigh, Straight from Knee to leg opening with 18.5" leg opening for 34" waist

    Colours are Dark wash indigo 649 and indigo 718

    Price point at 69.99 USD



    The Fast-Tac

    A more economy line option at $50 USD.
    Durable work pant with sleek design
    Water resistant finish
    9 pockets
    Dual magazine pockets at back yoke
    Cargo pockets with side bellows for extra capacity
    Reinforced front utility pocket edges
    Flexible, self-adjusting waistband with 7 loops

    That rifle on the wall of the laborer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there!

    I like the camo shirts on those folks. Makes it seem like you can see right through 'em!

    I get what you did there.

    But seriously, tactical jeans is a great idea. Funny how everything has come full circle. Years ago, companies were jumping at the opportunity to make all this tactical gear with a million pockets that screams "me so tactical", when in reality, you need the tactical functionality, but discretion for the common citizen is also important. I see other companies following suit (if they haven't already).

    I've actually stopped wearing my tactical pants for that reason (except while at the range).

    To be honest, I'd rather have a good pack that a zillion pockets.
    I like the ability to just drop it and unload that weight.
    I do own a few pair, but I find I rarely use more than a few pockets on them. As to the fabric, denim should have been a natural a long time ago.

    I'm going to assume by your response that you are talking from a civilian view point. As far as a tac pant goes those multiple pockets always end being "options for carriage" at work as we shuffle stuff around.

    yes, you may not need the two are mag pockets inside the Cargo pockets on strike pants, but they end up holding other items for me at work.

    the jeans may be a great plain clothes option I'd like to explore. But they probably won't be the best civilian Jean.

    Tactical jeans. How have we lived without these for so long.
