    • Exceptional design
      Reviewer: Gio Gee

      3/21/2019

      These Vertx pants have superb fit, style, details & overall construction. Tendency for such pants can be slightly ‘oversized’ / baggy, but not these Vertx pants! I’m classic 38”x30” size (200 lbs) & Vertx fit for me is very accurate. Fabric has good balance between lightweight / durability / comfort....but will monitor over longer term use. All pocket details well thought out / located & have a streamlined feel without sacrificing function....credit to Vertx designers! A great brand choice for your search in this product category!

    • Great, comfortable and useful pair of pants
      Reviewer: Rick M.

      2/15/2019

      These pants work very well for me. I really like the flat, low profile cargo pockets. The inner pocket inside of it is perfect for my cell phone. The zippered pocket works great for a pocket holster on days when I don't wear a belt holster. The fact that there is a short with the same design is a big plus also. Summertime doesn't require any adjustment of my everyday carry items.

      These are great pants. This was my 5th or 6th pair. They are very durable and comfortable. I like the flat profile cargo pockets and the zippered hidden pocket on the right side. I can pocket holster a medium frame semi auto or snug nose revolver in it.

    • Nice pant...but
      Reviewer: JOE

      11/26/2018

      the material was great, they fit my legs well, the size was true, but the crotch was very tight, and the rear end was a bit snug as well. I have huge thighs, these pants were great for that, but as they got closer to the crotch area they began to get small, the waist was perfect, definitely enough room for a holster.

      Reviewer: Ruston Clouse

      11/16/2018

      These pants are awesome! They are lightweight yet heavy duty. I have put them to the test over the past couple years and they haven’t disappointed me. They don’t have bulky Velcro pockets which adds to the slim design without losing mobility. And because of this, These pants look a little more casual and I enjoy wearing them when I am not on the range pr our doors like when I’m on dates with my wife and even church!

      As duty pants these are the best I have owned...nicely finished fabric that cleans easily...properly sized pockets in all the right places...comfortable in the station house, practical in the rig, durable enough for technical rescue. These pants are all that I could hope for.

    • Nice but not lightweight
      Reviewer: Tim Flor

      6/21/2018

      Nice pair of pants, I really like the fact that the cargo pocket sit flush and dont stick out unless something in there, But I was hoping since they were advised as lightweight that could be worm during summer months, but too heavy and hot for that, I have washed twice and still are very stiff, almost like that are over starched. They do dry fast and repeal stills. and stay very wrinkle free if you pull out of dryer after 20 min and hang up. I will use in fall and spring for sure

      Hi Tim! We're sorry to hear that these pants aren't what you expected, but we're glad you like them anyway! Our Customer Relations department would be more than happy to recommend a lighter pair of pants!

    • Very Good Trousers
      Reviewer: Fred

      5/25/2018

      Durable, Good fit, and strong material. I can see these trousers lasting a good number of years - just hope I don't gain too much weight because they don't stretch much. They do have an elastic waistband on the sides, but the expandability is minimal. One item that seems a little different is that your wallet in the back pocket feels like it sits close to the middle of your butt. Other than this I HIGHLY recommend these trousers.

      Reviewer: Lou Stool

      3/5/2018

      These pants are okay, I still prefer 5.11 brand, the biggest thing is the placement of the belt loops. They also need something on the waist band to help hold your shirt, other than those two things, great product

      I own several pairs of Vertex pants and all are exceptionally well constructed. These are the same. Light weight, comfortable, and very versatile. There is plenty of storage space in the cargo pockets foe extra gear or spare mags. The fit is perfect and true to size and the color choices are great.

      Reviewer: Brett Allison

      11/28/2017

      I’ve been looking for a good quality pair of tactical style pants, that aren’t overboard on the tactical, and fit well. These pants do a pretty good job. I’m a small slender build 5’3” and 125#, and this makes it hard to find good clothing that doesn’t fit like it’s 3 sizes too big. I’ve tried other tactical pants from the major brands and they swallow me. These pants fit true to size (as based on blue jeans that fit me well) and look really good. I ordered one pair to “try” and have ordered more. The only thing I would improve upon is placement of rear pockets, they sit a little to low causing me to sit on my wallet.

      Reviewer: Roberto A Espinosa

      9/11/2017

      The product was different than what the pictures showed. The pants did not fit me. It did not have the stretchable waist line like my other BDU pants. The pants were way too wide on the legs. I thought that the BDU pants were going to be slimmer. Fabric was totally different than my other Vertx pants. I will be returning this order. Not pleased with my pre house order.

      8/4/2017

      I like them so far, they're light and breathable. I work on a airport ramp in Texas, so these are a lot cooler than my regular jeans in the Texas summer. Only thing is they seem to run a bit long. I'm 5'6 and ordered the 30 inseam, which my I figured would be good enough...thats what I usually wear in my jeans, but by the end of the night I was stepping on them with my heels. That's the shortest they offer...so I'm going to have hemed up a little. Other than that I like them very much.

      There pants do not fit like the other Vertx tac pants I've purchased. I ordered the same size I always get and I found them very restrictive in the crotch and thigh area when squating or lifting my knees. I still love Vertx products, but this style of pants apparently isn't for me. I'll be returning them to get a different style, probably the phantom ops since I know those fit without being restrictive.

      These pants are heads and shoulders above the rest. Wear great, ironing is a breeze. Best feature is the open top back pockets for phone storage and removal. Inner pocket inside leg pocket is a great place for car key storage, holds them up close. Belt loops are well placed for belt holster wear...... thanks Vertex!

      Reviewer: Mike P.

      3/31/2017

      Five stars! These pants are the best I've had in a long time. Extremely light, but durable! Great pocket design, no buttons, no velcro! Just a few design recommendations: 1) put the concealed zipper pockets on both sides. This enables conceal carry persons to have their permit on the opposite side from the pistol. This will help put the LEO more at ease and reduce your chances of being shot when reaching for your id. 2) put two inner mag pockets instead of one inside the main cargo pocket. 3) have shorter inseam choices. There are lots of shorter people out there. In addition, you can't go wrong with this company! Their customer service is superior! Big shout out to Jess and Nikki!

      Reviewer: C Johnson

      3/10/2017

      Size was as expected, as was fit. My job provides me with a second cell phone. These cargo pants have the best phone pockets I've found, on both legs. The 2.0 version that these pants are features separate knife/multitool pockets that are a nice addition to an already well-designed product. The fabric is very tough, yet light. I'm just now starting to wear out my previous pair of Vertx pants after 2 years of weekly work wear in all conditions. My only complaint on the design is that they could use extra and repositioned belt loops. Tacticalgear.com's price was as good as any around.

      Have 2 pairs of phantom lightweight pants purchased a few years ago and 2 other models all in 33x32 and they fit great. Ordered the same size in this new model with a more "athletic fit" and they are too tight in the hips/crotch when sitting or bending. Need to return them. Did like the slightly more tapered calf.

      Reviewer: Chris Harris

      10/6/2016

      I LOVE Vertx pants. I started w/a pair of shorts, like the cut & design, so I decided to get this pair of pants. Back pockets that secure, are well sized, & don't drop my wallet below my buttocks? Check. Cargo pockets that have the ability to securely hold an AR mag when I forget to bring my holster to the range? Check. Comfortable waist that I don't have to hike up every so often? Check. Thinking about replacing all my 5.11.

      Reviewer: Mike Calnan

      8/2/2016

      I really like Vertx products! The best was the discontinued Featherlight line, but the Lightweight line is OK too. The small side pockets on the Lightweights are an improvement over the Featherlights, but the fabric is still a little too heavy for my use.
