F3 Tactical: Review of 5.11 Defender Flex Jean
Here at Breach-Bang-Clear we have many good friends in the gunslinging business all over the continent. Some of those are our budies over at F3 Tactical of Chantilly, VA. When they talk about stuff, we tend to listen.
What are we listening to today? His review of the 5.11 Defender Flex Jean; here’s what he had to say:
-The waistline is stretchy enough that you don’t need to buy a size up when carrying inside the waistband and you can get away with carry outside the waistband as well, while still maintaining a comfortable fit.
-For $70 a piece at F3 Tactical, these jeans are worth the price with their durability and the comfort you rarely get with many other “tactical” style pants at the same price.
-After three months, and used than just as casual wear, they hold up well.
-They have plenty of pockets, which have enough room to haul a “war kit”
5.11 advertises these jeans with the following features:
• Five pocket styling plus two rear hip pockets
• Double needle construction with bar tacks in high-stress areas
• Fitted waistband
• Rinse Wash Indigo or Dark Wash Indigo
• Button top fly with locking YKK® zipper
• Dual back patch pockets
• 10 oz. mechanical stretch denim (76% cotton / 24% polyester with Lycra® T400 Tough Max™)
• GSA/TAA compliant
If you plan on purchase these pants, try to do so at F3 Tactical so you can support a small business. Don’t stop there, though; they have a lots of good kit you can check out both online and in the shop. If you’re one of those unfortunate souls who can’t make it to the physical location and meet Bolt on “War Face Wednesday,” then drop by the Facebook and meet him there; that’ll also keep you in the in the loop on what’s new at F3 Tactical.
