New ‘Urban Tactical Pants’ Launch in Europe

Helikon-Tex's Urban Tactical Pants debut

It’s not often we see a new tactical pants line emerge from Europe.

But that’s exactly what happened at the 2011 IWA & OutdoorClassics in Germany. Helikon-Tex, a tactical clothing manufacturer based in Poland, revealed its Urban Tactical Pants to the world at the March trade show.

Constructed from 97 percent cotton and 3 percent spandex, the new trousers have a similar makeup to Vertx tactical pants’ 98 percent cotton, 2 percent Lycra material.

Like many tac pants on the market today, Urban Tactical Pants feature a gusseted crotch and do not contain metal. The knee area of the pants are said to have a unique design with “darts” to “enable shaping and adjustment to the body.” According to its catalog, Helikon-Tex has patents for the pants pending in both the U.S. and Europe.

At a glance, the trousers somewhat mirror 5.11 Tactical‘s original rear slash pockets–minus the buddy strap. There is a zipper cargo thigh pocket that appears to be in a unique location. Urban Tactical Pants are available in black, OD and khaki through Helikon-Tex dealers. Check out more pictures from the show on Helikon-Tex’s Facebook page.

The best part of these pants? The totally sweet action-figure guy in Helikon-Tex’s catalog. Urban Tactical Pants inside out crescent kick!

No crotch blowouts here!

What do you think of this new tactical pants contender?
