Military Cargo Pants

Military cargo pants are great for all kinds of activities or none. I have 5 pairs of military cargo pants including 5.11, Tru-Spec, CQR, Condor and Blackhawk. I wear them for just about anything from work to hunting to hiking and lounging around. They are comfortable and functional.

Here’s what I look for in a good pair of military cargo pants.

  1. Material – 65/35 Rip-Stop fabric
  2. Appearance
  3. 6-8 wide belt loops
  4. Heavy duty metal fasteners
  5. Fit
  6. Color
  7. Storage/cargo pocket size, style and number of
  8. Inexpensive
  9. Durability

I have 2 pairs of military cargo pants that meet all of these specifications. They are the CQR TLP104 and the Tru-Spec 24/7. The 5.11 Stryke and the Blackhawk pants are about $80-$100. The Condor cargo pants are not my favorite because they do not fit very well. They are baggy.

The Tru-Spec 24/7 cargo pants and the CQR TLP104 cargo pants are under $50 and very well made. I have worn them for several years and washed them numerous times and they still look brand new. They fit perfectly…not tight and not baggy. The Tru-Spec 24/7 pants are a slimmer fit than the CQR. I love both of these military cargo pants.

Here is the CQR TLP104 military cargo pants. They are really nice and you just can’t go wrong with the price…under $40.

Here is my pair of Tru-Spec 24/7 military cargo pants. I really like the way they fit…a little slimmer cut. These were around $45. I wear these on weekends for errands or just around the house. They are very comfortable and look great.
