My pick for the best budget tactical pants is the Tru-Spec 24/7 Tactical Pants.
Tru-Spec 24/7 tactical pants are made from the same Rip-Stop fabric that other premium tactical pants are made from but are only half the price. Most tactical pants cost about $90 – $120. I have a pair of 5.11 Stryke tactical pants and they were $90.
Here’s a link to buy them online….Tru-Spec 24/7 Tactical Pants at Amazon.com.
Here’s my pair of Tru-Spec 24/7 tactical pants….
Tru-Spec 24/7 Tactical Pants Fit
I ordered these in 29×32 and they fit perfectly. The waist is exactly 29 inches and the length 32 inches. The butt fits good…not baggy and not too tight. The legs are the same way. There is room in the legs without being baggy which I hate. I would say these pants are a slim fit and not a relaxed fit. I’m totally happy with the fit.
Tru-Spec 24/7 Tactical Pants Construction
These pants are made well and with a good quality Rip-Stop fabric. The stitching (double) is very well done. I did not see any loose threads or fabric coming loose.
There are 7 wide belt loops around the waistline. They are very secure and well placed. Any 1.5 inch belt will fit in them. This is how tactical pants should be made…strong and secure.
There are 4 flap covered cargo style pockets in the front. They are nicely designed and very functional. Velcro secures all of the flaps. The flaps stay flat and look very professional and clean. No big bulky saggy looking pockets. There are also 2 built in (hidden) side pockets with plenty of room. Double stitching is everywhere. There are 2 rear pockets that are normal looking like most jeans. The pockets are sewn on top of the pants. Some tactical pants like the 5.11 Strykers have “blind” rear pockets.
The waist fasteners are heavy duty. There is a snap fastener in the front that snaps with authority. It’s metal and heavy duty. The fly zipper is also metal and heavy duty (ZKK) also. It zips and unzips smoothly.
The knee sections of the pant legs are sewn in separate sections. This makes it easier to kneel without the pant legs pulling. The pant legs are nicely designed and very functional. Nice job!
These are excellent tactical pants at any price. They are as well made as just about any I have seen or worn and at half the price. I wear mine all the time.
