SENTINEL TACTICAL PANTS
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
I'm a full time Firefighter and part time Paramedic and bought these to try out as work pants. I've only been wearing them for a couple of months now, but the high quality is apparent to this point. The fit is exactly what I was looking for. Not to baggy yet does not bind up or restrict movement even when full turnout gear is worn over them, and pockets lay flat which I prefer for a cleaner look. Pocket count and layout suits me and my work perfectly and makes them easily adaptable in multiple roles beyond my job (range time, hiking etc). I have also worn them on duty as a medic and they worked just as well for me in that role. They lack straps to secure sheers obviously, but I use the Leatherman sheers that have they're own Kydex holster so that's a non issue for me personally. The Scotchgard treatment works great and has already saved this pair from a large amount of blood that got on them during a medic call. Every drop either flaked off or washed out with ease. My other, non treated medic pants would have never survived that amount of blood. I have 1 beef with these pants that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating. The knife pocket is flat out to shallow. It's not even deep enough to reliably store a pen let alone a decent sized folding knife. I have seen many people complain about this on the internet and I have to mention it as well. Fix that and this is a 5 star product all the way for me. I have to say I think Condor is missing an entire market though by not offering these pants in an EMS configuration, as many medics out there would surely consider them as well, if only they were available with straps to secure sheers.
