    My wife needles me about them being my "parachute pants" and that she had a pair of them back in the 80's. I've told her repeatedly, they're 5.11's, not freakin' "parachute pants". She just giggles.

    Yes, the "swish" of these things are a bit annoying. I too was always a jeans guy, but I am constantly crawling around, underneath, or into armored vehicles and even with a good belt, (Wilderness), I can't keep my jeans from falling down off my butt.

    I've been keeping with buying slightly used or unhemmed 5.11's to get great prices in case I ruin a pair. The most I've paid for my 5.11 collection is $25/pair. Slightly more than a pair of Dickie's and I can still write them off as a work expense.

    BTW, if you can hide IWB with jeans or regular 5.11's, I don't think these will be a problem, especially with a dark color.
