    Propper Tactical Pants?

    Anybody try the Propper brand tactical pants? The claim to be better than 5.11 and sell for $30 (free shipping) at TacticalPants.com.

    I received my 5.11 covert shorts from LAPoliceGear and like them so went for the long pants, but they closed out and none left in my size.

    My ACU's from propper are great. They are the same style as the tactical pants. You'll love 'em!

    Sorry Duke, you must be more active than me. I'm a 38x30 (a 36x30 wannabe).

    The Coast Guard uses Propper for their Operational Dress Uniform. Ive been wearing them for four years now and the only issue I have is the velcro on the pockets will rip and tear after a while. Make sure yours come with buttons, the CG uniform might be the only one with velcro.

    I've used them before. Be careful on which ones you get. I had a problem with 2 pair fading after about 10 washes. The newer ones suposedly dont fade as much.

    Thanks everybody. I've ordered my Proppers and they shipped already so I'll learn as I go.

    The pants arrived yesterday and they are quite nice. Excellent fit and room to move where needs be. Little disappointed in the pocket layout as they prefer "pockets in pockets" which are flaps sown inside a pocket. They will work well and I do like them.

    That said, I DO wish 5.11 hadn't discontinued their "Covert" line. I had just discovered them as they left. Managed to get a pair of Covert Shorts and love the pocket layout there.
