The best cheap tactical pants are the CQR TLP004 tactical pants for under $40.00.
I have 5 pairs of tactical pants that range from $100 to $30. The CQR TLP004 are the cheapest tactical pants that I have seen and/or owned. Most tactical pants run about $50-$75 and may or may not be good tactical pants.
The CQR TLP004 are the best cheap tactical pants because they are well made with 65/35 polyester/cotton Rip-Stop fabric with double stitching. Rip-Stop fabric is super tough and will not tear easily. It resists wear and will go through many washings and still look brand new. It’s a super fabric. The CQR tactical pants have heavy duty metal fasteners that secure the waist and fly. These metal fasteners will last 10-20 years.
CQR tactical pants fit me very well. The waist size and pant length are perfect. I wear 30 x 30 and these are right on the money. The pant legs are roomy but without looking baggy. I would consider them a “regular” fit. You can easily run, crawl, jump and climb in these without any leg binding.
The CQR tactical pants feature lots of cargo pockets and blind pockets to accommodate any storage needs. They are well designed and located ideally. The pocket fasteners are aggressive yet easily opened.
The CQR tactical pants are the best cheap tactical pants I have seen anywhere. You can’t beat them for the,price or even at $50. They’re great!
