Synopsis
Made of tough, 8.5-oz. 100% cotton peached and washed canvas that becomes increasingly more comfortable over time, the 5.11 Covert Cargo Pants stands up to the rigors of daily work, play and travel. Known for superior comfort, functionality and a relaxed fit, the pants feature a self-adjusting comfort waistband that helps you bend and stretch with ease. The 5.11 Covert Cargo pant offers anyone who wants a great looking pair of casual pants with some hidden solutions to all of the gear needed for undercover work or the day to day accessories of life. Rather than place cargo pockets on the exterior of the pant legs, we have hidden the pockets so that the Covert Cargos look like a regular pair of casual pants. They feature a flat front and a total of 16 pockets: two traditional style front pockets, each with interior pockets for magazines or accessories plus two standard rear pockets and two concealed vertical thigh pockets with zippers hidden along the side seams. The large covert cargo pockets on both legs are each capable of carrying 2 30-rd AR15/M4 magazines. While the two small concealed pockets at the waist are capable of carrying two smaller 15 round magazines each. With genuine, locking-flange YKK zippers and quality PRYM snaps, this pant is sure to help the user blend in, in almost any environment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty nice, a couple of flaws I can live with, July 5, 2012

I live in my old Covert Khakis, but they discontinued them a year ago, to my great dismay. My collection of half a dozen older pants is starting to get weary, so I was interested to see this latest version.

Fabric: the new stuff is significantly lighter weight. The old heavy fabric was quite hot in warm weather until it had been washed a couple of dozen times. While the new version will be cooler, it shows outlines of the stuff in your pockets more easily when you bend your leg or the wind blows the fabric against your skin. Also, the new stuff is a very tight weave. While 100% cotton, it has a slick feel like a finely woven bed sheet. I prefer the “canvas” look and feel of the old pants.

Pockets: they are still nice and deep and square bottomed (very easy to carry a pocket pistol like a P3-AT in a pocket holster), but they have the habit of dumping all the small contents onto the couch when you lie down – coins, keys etc. My old pants pockets did not do… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pants!, May 8, 2012

I love these pants! To my eye, they are a bit baggy for “business casual”, and there are visible seams where the cargo pockets are sewn in. However, my wife says they look fine and doesn’t think they’re too baggy, and she’s got better taste than I. They are very comfortable and functional, and very well constructed. The fabric is not too heavy for warm weather. The many pockets are great; the sewn-in compartments for ammo magazines will hold all kinds stuff neatly (pens, phone, etc.). A note on colors: “Coyote Brown” is a very light brown, closer to what I think of as khaki. “Tundra” is olive-green.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as pictured, May 5, 2013

This review is from: 5.11 Tactical #74290 Covert Cargo Pants (Sports)
I ordered 2 pairs of these pants. The first order I kept as I do like the pants. However, I ordered Tundra and the color was OD Green upon arrival. I ordered the second pair with the same color as the first, Tundra, but received Green once again.. The display pictures show Khaki, Green, and Tundra. The Tundra is supposed to be brown, as dipicted in the pictures.
I am disappointed with the difference between what the colors are displayed and what you actually reeive. I sent the second pair back for a refund.
