Big thanks to Tru Spec for sending me a couple pair of their new 24-7 Series Pro Flex Tactical Pants to try out. I have had some of their Classic BDU Pants and Classic 24-7 Tactical Pants for a while now and have enjoyed those.
Nice review! I have some LAPG brand cargo pants that are cheaper than most. They work ok, but they’re heavy, don’t dry quick, shrink easily when washed, and aren’t flexible enough for running, crouching, jumping and low crawls. Then again, they don’t cost as much as most of the other brands.
I’m looking for some pants that don’t have that “tactical” look but are still flexible, light, quick-dry and moisture-wicking, and athletic but still look casual.
don’t know if you have seen my other pants videos BUT, Wrangler Outdoor Performance pants are AMAZING as far as stretch, comfort, breathing, drying, etc. now, that said, they are not very rugged or tough and they also do not really have that tactical look but i LOVE them, they certainly have a place in my wardrobe and at about $20 are priced right too. The True Spec walk more of a line between the heavy denim cargo pants and those really light duty ones. I am waiting until next week to wear these newer versions because I want clean pants for the Gun Rights Policy Conference. After that I will be able to do an actual comparison between the classic 24-7 and these new flex 24-7.
I am 6’ 2" tall, 175 lbs. and need pants with a 32" waist and 36" inseam. Few companies make pants in those dimensions…except for Carhartt. Currently, I am wearing the Carhartt Force Extremes Relaxed Fit #101964 cargo pants. They fit well and feel comfortable, but I would like some other options. Any ideas or recommendations for a tall skinny white dude? Thanks.
i have never really looked at pants sizes offered to be honest. i can certainly see that as an issue. i am way more short and round. carhartt is good stuff, i just find it way to heavy for me now days in most situations. i know that tru spec offers unhemmed versions of their pants so the length can be custom tailored. after a little homework, it looks like a lot of tactical pants companies do offer at least something. as is said, tru spec has the unhemmed, as does Galls with their tac fore pants and propper has your size, so there are a few potential options.
I have found several options from specialized tactical clothing companies, but they are usually very expensive and require additional custom hemming. Thank you for the new info. I will check out Tru Spec and Galls.
Thanks for the info on the Wranglers. I hadn’t heard yet of that particular pair, but they sound promising. Inexpensive too!
hemming i easy to do. when i can’t find pants l like in a certain inseam, i will get something close but longer and have my wife hem them, takes here no time.
