Double and triple-needle construction is utilized throughout, plus 48 bartacks in high-stress areas.

    Front pockets are strong and roomy inverted pleats on the cargo pockets remain flat until needed for a neat, professional appearance. A narrow front pocket accommodates a magazine, cell phone or utility knife. The extra deep rear slash pockets are easily accessed and hold extended mags, a baton or a 15” flashlight. You can also use the utility strap to secure a flashlight or store your protective ear gear at the range.

    The 5.11 Tactical Short utilizes a proprietary weave that binds in on itself to prevent raveling. For added durability, the magazine/cell phone pocket and corners of the slash pockets are lined with Cordura nylon. The double reinforced seat provides enhanced abrasion protection.

    On the 5.11 Tactical Short, 5.11 uses only genuine, locking-flange YKK zippers and quality PRYM snaps, both of which are top-of-the-line in the industry. Additional quality hardware is found in the front, where a convenient D-ring holds your keys, ID or duty knife.

    As with the 5.11 Tactical Pant, the legendary fit of the women 's cut 5.11 Tactical Short is a closely-guarded secret based on a tried-and-true formula created 30 years ago. Designed for active movement in changing conditions, the shorts perform and look great on women of all shapes and sizes.

  • 5 out of 5 Absolutely LOVE these shorts in canvas. True to size, plenty of pockets and totally comfortable. I do a lot of climbing on the job and these shorts don't bind in any way. Absolutely HATE the fact that these seem to be discontinued!

  • Great purchase!

  • 4 out of 5 The pockets are very roomy and the construction is rugged. I do like the Taclites a little better because these don't have the little pocket in front. Also, while the material is sturdy it also attracts lint and pet hair like crazy, make sure you have a lint roller if you have pets! I have used these for rock hiking, tennis and some biking, very comfortable. The elastic waist is great for carrying IWB and roomy pockets great for spare mags.

  • Love these shorts "New Fit"

  • 5 out of 5 These shorts are great. I am 5'1" and 120 lbs. I am glad your shorts are low waisted, other wise the waist hits just below my breast. Thank you for thinking of us short petite woman. I think they could be a little shorter in length and the side pockets could be a little longer for work stuff. Thank you for the great product..ordering a few pairs now. By the way I get order a size smaller.

  • 3 out of 5 I purchased these early spring because I LOVE the 5.11 EMS pant for women. I know that these are 'tactical' shorts so I will be kind here.. They fit nice for a low rise short. They hit nice on mid thigh. I am 5'3" and 165 and have very athletic legs. These would be perfect if they had bigger pockets to fit field guide, and somewhere secure to put scissors.. blah blah blah... SO 1) shame on 5.11 for advertising these for EMS 2) if you get these, get a tool pouch for your belt.

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.
