    Those look good. Can't tell but assume those are snaps that would have to be re-snapped a bunch of times during draw practice.

    Interesting.

    Interesting concept. The first two might aid a little in a gun not getting snagged on the draw.

    The blue jeans with the pocket release on the rear of the pocket concerns me. If that pops open on its own, will the gun fall out when one is seated?

    Regardless, $90 for a pair of pants isn't in my budget. When I want to pocket carry, I'll stick to placing guns in pockets that I can draw without any extra releases being necessary.

    If I had an unlimited supply of money, I might give the first two a try. But I don't, so I won't.

    $90 plus tax will go a long ways toward another gun, holster, ammo, or other bills for me.

    I have to admit I am a little skeptical that they pants can 1. conceal a larger double stack handgun and 2. that it is easy to draw. But I am curious and if they work, would be the perfect asnwer. Somebody willing to pony up 90 bucks and review for us all?

    I am deeply disturbed by the videos on the site, however. Even assuming the actors are portraying LEO's, doesn't the purse snatching video break every rule we learned about CC? Her purse is stolen without threat of deadly force, the man chases him down an alley where he confronts the perp who draws a knife and he shoots him. If I did that here in Kentucky, I would be on trial. What about the parking lot scenario, the bad guy has a gun and rather than getting beside the vehicle and avoiding the threat he steps out like its the OK Corral and draws and fires. If I did that I would be on my way to the ER with a hole in my chest.

    Went by their booth at the convention today and watched the rep demonstrate the pants. My opinion is they are an interesting gimmick; while the holster part is adjustable to accommodate different weapons even with a medium sized semi-auto in the holster there was a large bulge. The bulge did not print enough to scream gun but it did look like he had a used diaper rolled up and in the pocket. Personally I think the price would be better spent on a quality holster.

    - I think the only real benefit of these pants is that you would actually be able to FIT a medium or full size gun in your pocket. It's not going to make it print any less. I also can't imagine walking down a street with a Glock 17 in my pocket. It's not going to look natural in any way.

    I agree that a quality holster would be a better investment than buying 5 or more pairs of pants...

    It appears that drawing the weapon while sitting (dining, driving..) in these pants would most likely prove to be far more problematic than if carrying OWB or IWB.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Great concept although the slacks look a bit too saggy and I never have embraced the 'relaxed' fit. However, I would consider the jeans if they offer a return policy. Anyway, for now I'll just make do with the more conventional approach. BTW: The whole ‘Walter Mitty’ scenario with the 178 round engagement was really cheesy.

    I've got to agree with Grady. That $90 price tag for a pair of jeans is pretty steep. If you really wanted to, you could probably have a tailor do something similar with a standard pair of jeans and pay less.
