5.11 Tactical Shorts: Men's Black Taclite Pro Work Shorts 73308 019
Do you save your shorts for the weekend, and wear jeans through the week? You need strong clothing on the job, but when it's hot outside you need to take care of yourself. 5.11 Tactical 73308 019 Black Men's Taclite 11 Inch Pro Shorts were designed specifically for work, in a longer length that makes them workable on the job.
These black tactical shorts are made with an 11-inch inseam, giving your upper legs plenty of coverage. A fully gusseted crotch gives you plenty of space to maneuver. You can bend, squat, sit, crouch -- whatever you need to do.
A combination of black, 6.14 ounce 65% polyester and 35% cotton ripstop materials were used to craft these tough, lightweight 5.11 men's shorts. Polyester resists wrinkles and dries quickly, so you can yank it right from the dryer. Cotton ripstop is named for what it does – stops rips and tears.
The fabric isn’t just wrinkle-resistant, it’s also fade-resistant. It’s been treated with a Teflon coating, the same stuff used on pans, to protect against spills and stains. The action waist moves and contours to your body. Genuine YKK zippers and Prym snaps finish the waistline with durable hardware.
5.11 Tactical’s signature rear strap and slash pockets are just the beginning of the storage space. There are also two cargo pockets on the thighs, a cell phone (or magazine) pocket on the left cargo pocket, and an external knife pocket on the right. Both the knife and magazine pockets have been reinforced with abrasion-resistant, 100% Cordura nylon.
Even the belt loops are made to be tough, thick enough to support the weight of a belt that holds a sidearm, cuffs and other work gear. 5.11 Tactical 73308 019 Black Men's Taclite 11 Inch Pro Shorts are strong and workable, and that’s how work clothes should be.

Professional Short in a Field Environment...
I work in the field for most of the time and these shorts keep me cool while staying within professional dress. Quality is excellent as always from 5.11 and the cargo pockets give me room to store all my tools as well as EDC gear. Recommended buy!

A very useful assortment of pockets and a comfortable wide waist band.
But the cut was very odd to me. The leg opening was tight & binding just above my knee in the front even though there was plenty of fabric in the back.
I don't often wear shorts, but my comparison pair are Levis Workwear cargo shorts. I find the cut on the Levis much more comfortable, perhaps it's the sightly longer leg wich falls just below rather than just above my knee. The 5.11 have much more useful packet layout and while the Levis have stood up well the 5.11 at first look seem more solidly built.
It's a shame about the leg fit, as I'll have to send them back I'm sure that would start to chafe if I gave them any serious wear.
If you have a chance to try them on first I'd do it, perhaps they work with a longer or shorter leg (I'm a 36 waist 34 leg so not unusually proportioned). I would not recommend buying them sight unseen .
