I’m much more likely to wear jeans than cargo pants, even on the range, summer or winter. However, I still need a place to put all of my errrry’ day currry, because I carry a LOT of stuff!
These 5.11 Defender Flex jeans are a good fit for my lifestyle. They have plenty of pockets, and the pockets are roomy enough for me to haul around my war kit. As I tell folks all the time, if I have to defend my shop, my Chief, and/or my dog, I’m going to war with whatever might be troubling them.
The waistline on these jeans is really stretchy, so I can easily get away with carrying IWB and not have to purchase a larger size just for that reason. For the days I’m carrying OWB, the pants fit and feel the same. Easy day.
At around 70 bones they have the durability and comfort that a lot of other “tactical” pants offer in the same price range. My three pairs are going on about 6 months now with a bit more than just casual use, and they are holding up well.
5.11 Defender Flex Jeans (and Defender Flex pants in other colors) are available at F3 Tactical now.
