Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These shorts are comfortable even in hot weather. They seem to resist stains and water drops roll right off the fabric. The pockets are great and allow you to spread out your EDC gear comfortably. These shorts are constructed well and I expect they will last a long time. The shorts run true to size and have the ability to stretch in the waistband if needed. These shorts have a neat appearance and do not require ironing.
First off let me say that I have about 4 pairs of these shorts and about 8 pairs of the pants version of the Taclite Pro's. I love these shorts and pants. If you work in the field at all or work around firearms, these are the best pants that I have seen and used. They take abuse well. I have some pairs that I have had for over 3 years and still look as good as the day I got them. With that said, I dont know what is the deal with this latest pair I ordered from Amazon. I have always bought these direct from law enforcement stores or military exchanges. This is the first time I ordered a pair from Amazon. The tags look a little different, no big deal they might have changed some in the last year since I got a new pair. But the size is all wrong. I could tell right away when I put them on they didn't feel right, but thought it was just the new out of the box feel. I sat them aside and wore another pair. The next day when I went to grab them and put them on I could tell right...
I got my first pair in 2008. They fit well have been worn and washed many 100s of times. They show little wear after 5 years. I'm very hard on pants but I've never torn, ripped or had a seam come lose.
The cell phone pocket is great, deep pockets, reinforced pocket knife clip points. I hook all kinds of stuff to them. I hate keys in the pockets poking my leg so the ring clip is perfect.
I've bought more pairs over the years, probably have 12 pairs right now.
Now for why the seemingly perfect pants only get 3 stars:
As others have mentioned, the fit/feel/sizing of these is atrocious. I've had to exchange quite a few due to fit, some will fit like a glove, won't fall down even without a belt, and are absolutely comfortable. Others will fall off my butt after a few steps or bending down once. One pair came up in front way over my belly button but the back wouldn't cover my butt. Some just feel really weird like they went through the sewing...
