STEALTH OPERATOR PANTS
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
We recently purchased these pants to wear in an overt, operational capacity so something with a professional appearance was necessary. MATERIAL: The ripstop material is durable, light weight and is a 2-way stretch (stretches horizontal, not vertical). We wore them in temperatures up to 38C (100F) and they seemed to breathe well and were still comfortable. FIT: The pants are very true to size as I'm 5'11, 185 pounds and the 32/32 fits perfectly while the waist has elasticized portions to allow for expansion. They are slightly more fitted than the photos appear which is a benefit. Although fitted, they flex very well and weren't tight when bending, moving, or entering/exiting vehicles. FEATURES: The cargo pockets are great and sit very flush so they don't look sloppy or baggy. I used the internal gadget pocket a lot which keeps your cell phone higher in the otherwise deep pocket so you don't have to dig for it. Cargo pockets were large enough for a large size notebook. The rear pockets also easily accommodate a large notebook or pair of gloves. The waist d-rings are a nice touch although I had no use for them. FUNCTION: My only complaint came from the placement of the side belt loops. These pants have 7 belt loops (one extra wide rear, two offset from the rear, two sides where a traditional leg seam would land, and two front offset of the fly). The two side belt loops are at the exact centre of the leg, meaning they hinder the placement of a belt mounted drop holster which will either be forced in front or behind of the loop. A very small concession on an otherwise excellent pair of pants.
