Warrior Wear Tactical Pants Discontinued

Blackhawk has decided to discontinue its Warrior Wear tactical pants. This news, which we learned yesterday, came with no further explanation other than an attachment of its replacement—the Ultralight Tactical Pants.

Introduced in 2008, the Warrior Wear tactical pants packed in plenty of features at a premium price, including a crotch gusset, a tunneled elastic waistband, Teflon DWR and numerous bar-tacks reinforcements. In its final verdict about the pants, Tactical Pants Review said: “[It’s] not quite tough enough to survive an atomic bomb blast—but pretty darn close.”

Others have praised the pants for their “great fit,” “rock solid construction” and general “pure genius.” Even through reports of slight fading, the Warrior Wear tactical pants became a fan favorite for those who needed a truly tough trouser.

With that said, we can only bask in its memory and perhaps order a few of the last pairs. As difficult as that may be, we must move forward and beckon in Blackhawk’s Ultralight Tactical Pants. According to the specs below, it will prove to be the lightest weight tactical pant when it enters the market in 2011. Although the name reminds us of a cigarette pack, we couldn’t be more thrilled to step into a pair.

  2. I think it’s a great replacement, as long as the price is reasonable. The combat pants from Crye Precision are pretty hardcore, lets hope Blackhawk can take them on. Also, the lighter, the better.

  3. Nope, not really, lots of other pants out there in that “class”, however the Ultralights are very tempting for wear during the hot and humid months, lots of colors and maybe Multicam please shipmate?
