The styling of tactical pants is probably their most distinguishing feature. They have a rugged, technical look that screams tactical operator. Combining a pair of tactical pants with Oakley shades conjures up images of an elite special forces operator or SWAT team member. This coolness factor has contributed to the popularity of tactical pants even among those whose duties might not necessarily be all that “tactical”. They convey an authenticity and a functionality that has proven popular throughout the law enforcement community.
Most tactical pants offer two front pockets, two front bellowed cargo pockets, two rear pockets and typically one or two magazine or mobile phone pockets situated just above the cargo pockets. A hook and loop system is typically incorporated for keeping pocket contents secure. They have wide belt loops to accomodate the larger nylon BDU style belts and usually offer a zip fly. Other common features include slots to insert knee pads, double reinforced seat and knee construction and even Cordura lined front pockets to prevent fabric fraying caused by knife clips at particular stress points.
