      Reviewer: Chris Telarico

      12/5/2018

      I washed the pants as directed to wash out the excess dye. When I removed them from the dryer I was saddened to see the dye washed out in stripes. from the waist down to the top of the thighs, making it look like I had slept in the pants for a few days.

      12/4/2018

      I have 5 pairs of these jeans. I use them to go out on the town, range, and Hiking. Im just in love with these jeans. Ok, the small pocket that holds an AR mag. I perfectly hold my wallet and able to ride my car while carrying the wallet inside the back pocket. Amazing. They'd move with you sooooo comfortably. This jean was made for big guys that wanna feel comfortable but yet hip with the new tactical jeans. Buy them.

    • Awesome jeans!!!!
      Reviewer: RJ

      10/28/2018

      The fit was perfect. I have no end of difficulty finding jeans that fit. These were right on the money...if you have a muscular build and need the room and flexibility, these are your jeans! I have a 27” thigh and wear a 34W. The finish is great and modern looking. Mostly, I love that it has eight belt loops. Keeps the belt from climbing over the waistband and looks very sharp with a tucked shirt. I consider myself to be a thrifty guy but also believe you get what you pay for...these jeans were worth every penny.

      Reviewer: William Barnes

      9/13/2018

      I’ve been looking for jeans to supplement my cargo pants. These work great. I expected some shrinking but had nothing during the first washing. The seem to run a little large. I’ll buy some more of these if they continue to hold up after a couple more washings.

    • Nice Jeans
      Reviewer: Richard Koefod

      8/8/2018

      I’m retired and no longer wear suits. My daily dress is casual and I prefer jeans. At 5’11” and 196 with a 38”waistline & 34” inseam, I have not found jeans that fit me the way I prefer. After reviewing the 5.11 Defenders, I thought I’d give them a try. These work for me. The straight leg version doesn’t feel constricting any where. They ride at the waist where I wanted and the seat doesn’t make me look like in wearing a Depends that needs changing. The color is a very deep indigo. And, because I carry every day these work perfectly with AIWB and a full sized pistol. While I have so-called tactical pants, I use those for range work and training. I don’t wear those on the street. With these jeans, I can also carry a SOF-T tourniquet in one of the hip pockets and a small flashlight or mag in the other along with a compact compression bandage wallet and keys in the other pockets and still just look like some older dude with just a nice pair of jeans. Perfect “grey man” attire. Like them so much I also got a pair in stone. Hope they keep making these.

      Reviewer: Realistic Defense

      6/21/2018

      I won't dock any stars for the wrong picture (which displays a dark brown pant), but I have to mention it nonetheless. I love these pants. Spent an entire day at the local county fair with them, hiked 20 miles in them, cleared a half-acre of brush in them, and even jumped off a cliff in them. These are by far the best non-tactical looking pants I own! I love them so much I have 4 pairs!

    • Excellent Jeans for CCW
      Reviewer: Tom P.

      5/8/2018

      I think these jeans are fantastic. My wife gets on me about always going too tactical. I came across these pants to light'n up on that look and they definitely give you all the advantages of tactical pants [in itself concealed] yet look very nice for going out. The deep pocket in the back are great for mags, cell phone, etc. I will say the zipper opening could be a bit longer for easier access and added reinforcement where you place your EDC knife . Aside from that, I will get another pair. They fit as expected and have a nice break at the shoe line.

      Reviewer: Jimmy Graham

      4/3/2018

      They bleed a lot so wash twice upon getting them. Best jeans I’ve found. Extra mag pocket eliminates the need for mag pouch on belt. Just enough stretch for kneeling posture w rifle and IWB carry. Straight cut is perfect for boots. Highly recommend these jeans

    • Good fabric, weak execution
      Reviewer: Road Warrior

      4/2/2018

      Weak execution in that the front pockets are not deep enough and the rise was too short. Fabric looked and felt good on, but due to the low rise they fit like hipster doofuss jeans.

    • Poor placement of belt loops for OWB carry
      Reviewer: Geoffry J. Balogh

      2/12/2018

      I would expect a company like 511 to get this right. The belt loop at 3 O’clock is too far forward and gets in the way of my belt slide holster. The stretch fabric and the look of these jeans is great but not good for me when it comes to strong side OWB carry.

      I bought this product and it is just barely lighter than the regular indigo, which is disappointing as I was wanting the color in this picture. Jeans fit nice and they are fine to wear. Doesn't make your ass look good, but you have full range of motion unless you're Chuck M.F. Norris.

      Good looking good fitting flex jeans. The right side belt loop at the 3 o’clock position is timed too far forward. This causes my strong side OWB holsters to ride too far forward on my strong side. Too bad.

      Reviewer: Joel Negron

      1/31/2018

      The fit on these jeans are great and they feel super comfortable. Might have been my new favorite pair of jeans however, they smell...I'm assuming it's the dye. I got the lighter of the 2 inks. I think indigo. I washed it with vinegar, with vinegar and baking soda, ,with detergent, I've tried coffee and putting it in the freezer. I'm done trying to use these jeans because all I smell is a nasty type chemical smell. I have a pair of the khaki as well, I use those all the time. they fade a bit after the first wash but at least they don't look white. the khaki ones also look a little tattered after the first wash like I've had them for a year but after about 3 washes it still looks the same so I think that's just the way they are and i'll keep using those.

      These jeans are very comfortable. They are a fairly light weight denim. With that being said they held up to some sub zero temperatures with 20mph winds, with out a lot of heat loss. I was really surprised myself. They live up to their name and give an great amount of flexibility, and have the quality of 5.11 products. Would certainly buy again.

      3 stars only because of zipper issue. Jeans came on time and look good. Only problem is the zipper had a issue in manufacturing and came unattached from the pants because of no stitching. I’m hoping I don’t have a issue with the return because I took the tags off after unpacking. My mistake!

      I really like the jeans. My new favorites. Will be ordering another pair or two. Probably the most comfortable jeans I own. Great jeans for EDC / IWB. Front pockets could be deeper for sure. The color does bleed off as mentioned but not nearly as bad as some have posted and I had visioned. No more than a regular pair of Levis but much more comfortable. Have gotten several nice comments on them.

      Have rec'd product and meets all the reasons I purchased it for. The extra pockets for clips is 3.5" wide and 6.0" deep. these pockets are also off set of normal pockets so billfold and clips do not have to overlap each other. The front and back pockets are normal size and will hold whatever you usually place in the pockets. Very happy with overall product.

      I have to say I was skeptical again, this is my second time I purchased pants from here, and these are the best feeling pants I've ever worn. They were very light feeling, and the comfort is unsurpassed. I was actually shocked just after having them on for 10 seconds. I will be buying a couple of more in a couple of weeks.

      These pants fit very well and have a bit of elasticity to them which makes them flex with movement. I have read of the color rubbing off but to date I have not experienced it. I am between a 34 & 36 waist, 6'2', and the 36'x32 work great for me. The ONLY gripe I have is the front pockets are too shallow. I wish they were a bit deeper. Other than that I recommend giving these a shot. I hope they fix the pockets and make more colors soon.

      Pros: Good fit, look good. Material is nice, tough but with that little bit of stretch. Very comfortable. Good quality. Cons: Pockets!! The pockets are just too shallow, front and back. I'm not talking about they should be extra deep pockets for EDC or anything, just normal depth like Levis or Wranglers. A wallet barely fits in the back pocket with out sneaking out, and if you sit you're at risk of it falling out. If you put a cell phone back there (iPhone size) it's at high risk of slipping out while sitting. The front pockets are the same, much too shallow. The watch pocket on the right side is nice with good depth, could hold a magazine. Nice if there was one on the left too. Suggestions for the 2.0 version (I'd buy these again if the 2.0 upgrades were done): Deeper pockets and add a watch pocket (second pocket) on the left too, be nice for a magazine.

      I like the magazine pocket and the comfort, but the cut is too baggy.

      The pants fit very well. The flex material is very comfortable and is easy to move around in. The extra mag pockets are well placed to be accessible while not visible. I liked them so much I bought 2 more pair.

      I like 5.11 pants as I know they are sturdy, functional and affordable. I was excited to check out these jeans. However, while the quality was great, the fit (especially the waist) was totally off. I have ordered a 34x34 and was a little afraid that they might end up being tight as I'm somewhere around 35" around my waist. But once I put them on I realized that the waist was way too large. The inseam is right on, and because of the stretch material I would not suggest to buy longer.

    • Overall very good pants - needs a couple of change
      Reviewer: Pete Webb

      8/25/2017

      Overall the pants are very good. Well constructed out of good materials. I really like the material the inside of the pockets are made of and they are well stitched and seem very durable. I bought this jean because it has numerous pockets, including special ones on each side of the back that are perfect for magazines/knives etc, AND because the pants overall do not look military. But I carry a Kahr PM9 pistol (similar in size to Glock 43) in right rear pocket in a leather holster made specifically for the gun. It is a VERY tight fit but works as long as you have a shirt un-tucked over the pocket. Otherwise the gun is very visible from behind. It would be perfect for these size guns if the rear pockets were at least 1/2" deeper and 1/4" wider. Otherwise all works well for me for my everyday concealed carry.

      I have thicker thighs than the average straight leg pant wearer. I hope they will come out with a pair of these in "loose" fit!!

      Great fit and feel. Although i have noticed the color bleeds a lot, lets see how they hold up after a few washes.

      Have had the slim version of theses for a few months in 36x32 and love them. Bought the same size in this new straight leg version but the straight 36x32 are much longer. To check I went to a local 5.11 store and found the same difference in slim vs straight. I tried on 36x30 in straight and they fit perfect. So consider that the straight cut may be longer that your normal size expectation and you might want to go down a size in length. Now that I know what size I like, the jeans are fantastic. Very comfortable and a more comfortable thigh/calf fit than the slim version. If you conceal carry, the waist has enough give that you will be ok IWB. Bending over, crouching, driving, sitting in an office chair and going to the shooting range are all comfortable. I use one of the back magazine pockets to hold my phone. Very happy with these jean and are my new favorite pair.

    • too loose/baggy color should be left solid
      Reviewer: Joe Mama

      5/11/2017

      good concept they are a little too loose compared to say a levi 501 in similar size maybe a size down would help. regardless of fit the color is horrible looks cheap, like something a trendy 15 year old would wear the fake fading does not look good. leave them alone in a solid color and reg fit and you have a winner. also front pockets are too shallow.

      The jeans are really great and built very well. I just am really dissapoined that these front pockets are so shallow. It's geared towards a concealed carry market who would be pocket carrying, but yet the pockets aren't even as deep as the jeans you can get at Walmart??
