Best Selling 5.11 Gear
The only Shorts I Wear
511 Shorts are the only shorts that I wear and have done so for years. For me they offer the most comfort and are the most functional shorts made. Multiple pockets are super and with the front pockets you have quick access to in my case my wallet and other items which I find great as I don't have to sit on my wallet when driving which I do quite a bit of and they seem to last forever. The Long Pants are equally as good.

Fitment is great. Material is stiff, but softens over time. Lots of usable pockets. Con, DELETE that ugly useless "5.11's Signature Strap".

Love the Fit and Construction, But
I am 6' and 230 to 235 lb, the cut in the thigh area fits great. The cut, combined with the material "small amount of stretch " allows for comfort and maneuverability. Love the rear magazine pockets. Two things I wish. 1. I wish 5.11 would add a left side deep coin pocket, so that us right handed shooters could use it as a pistol magazine pocket. The one on the left is great for a knife or a left handed shooter. But both sides need that pocket. 2. I wish it came in more patterns or colors. Would I buy again? Yes, unless 5.11 introduced a model with a left side deep coin pocket. I would then switch to that model.

The 5.11 Tactical Headquarters
One of the original providers of military and tactical clothing and gear, 5.11 has innovation and resilience at its core. The company takes its name from rock climbing. The Yosemite Decimal System initially ranked the difficulty level of a climb on a scale with 5.0 as the easiest and 5.10 as the hardest. A climb that ranked as a 5.11 was considered impossible–but occasionally, someone did it. 5.11 wants all its tactical clothing and equipment to inspire this conquer-the-impossible mentality. The company first focused its attention on creating clothing tough enough for rock climbing, but dressy enough for work. This durable, all-day wear caught the attention of FBI agents, who started ordering it for tactical operations. 5.11 shifted its focus to providing servicemen and public safety professionals with everything they need to perform at their best in any situation.
