    I liked the 5.11s better when they were from Royal Robbins. I think the 5.11 branded ones moved the "cell phone pocket" to the left side and the material seems lighter, though I haven't worn any out either brand. Haven't laid hands on the Woolrich species to see how they compare.

    I cashed in on the discount offered to Combat Carry members by Jamie Young at RogueElite.net. Great deal and I will let you all know how it works out when it gets here.
    First report:
    Communication was great, live updates of your orders progress on their site, shipping was a bit high but they shipped same day so I am happy. Some places with FREE shipping take their own sweet time to get it packaged and shipped.

    I dont think they were old stock bro as they were a fresh issue from the feds on a bulk order from 5-11. However I ordered another two pair myself from 5.11 directly and they arrived with pockets on the left. Wierd. I wonder if our agency specified that the pockets be on the right side when they did their order. Hmmmmmm.

    The small knife pouch (phone pocket)on all my 5.11's are on the RH side leg. All my pants are the full cotton, so may be the newer blend is set up different?
