  • 5 out of 5 Great shorts. Fit well. As other reviewers have said, they come out of the dryer in great shape and do not need ironing. However, the website should include a disclaimer that you should go up a size if you are going to carry IWB as the elastic does not expand enough for that.

  • 5 out of 5 You cannot find a better quality or more longer lasting pair of shorts than 5.11 Tactical. Just like their longer version pants, but with the comfort of a pair of shorts. Love the extra magazine pockets...they also work great for clip-on, pocket

  • 4 out of 5 Love the material and construction. However, the left flap pocket should be a little wider to accommodate a smart phone. I suspect it's designed for a clip, but those of us who are not sworn law enforcement would love to put a smart phone in there. Also, with the shots (logically) the lower pocket is a little shallow for a smart phone. Not a problem with the regular pants, but again, a good reason to put the phone in the upper left pocket.

  • Great Shorts.

  • 5 out of 5 Opted for a color other than khaki and chose the tundra. Wasnt going for such a dressy look but the color actually makes these shorts look a notch above the casual look I was going for.

About 5.11 Taclite Pro Shorts

  • Part modern and part traditional, 5.11 Taclite military boots fuses tried-and-true technologies with innovative features to maximize its functionality. It has the standard lace-to-toe construction, while incorporating multiple panels of leather, mesh and nylon. Increasing its breathability, the boot utilizes perforated EVA foam padding. In addition, the antibacterial and moisture-wicking lining ensures feet stay dry. For lasting comfort, it combines an Ortholite sockliner, composite shank and CMEVA midsole to offer the ultimate cushioning and support experience. Providing superior all-terrain traction, its outsole has deep flex grooves and multi-directional lugs. Although it has a no-nonsense profile, the Taclite is awesomely cushioned and comfortable.

About 5.11 Tactical

5.11 collage It all began with the pants. Taking its name after its flagship product, 5.11 manufactures some of the most well-known tactical pants and clothing in the world. The original 5.11 Pant was initially developed as a rock climbing trouser, but police officers became fond of the spacious, functional pants. For the last 30 years, personnel from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies have worn these pants. Founded on the principles of durability and quality, 5.11 expanded its scope and soon began manufacturing other articles of tactical clothing, footwear, eyewear, duty knives, tactical gear, holsters and much more.
