Stop by our store and it’s a good bet that at least one employee – and sometimes three or four – is wearing a pair of Tru-Spec’s 24-7 tactical pants. Sometimes it’s a pair of their Eclipse jean-style tactical pants or the Tru-Spec classic pants, but most of us prefer the original 24-7 pants.
And what’s not to like? They are comfortable and useful, with deep front pockets capable of concealing a revolver or pocket pistol, plus two cargo pockets, each of which is large enough to hold two AR15 magazines or the world’s largest wallet. There are two smaller flap pockets in the front and a matched set of rear pockets, all protected with a flap that is secure by a good amount of Velcro. There is also a thin knife pocket on each side that also can hold a flashlight or a tool.
If you wear an IWB holster, the expandable waistband of these pants will allow you to be as comfortable with it on as you were without it, and there is an internal pouch at the knees that will allow you to slip a knee pad inside. The teflon coating helps keep them clean and makes a splash of water bead up and roll off, usually before it soaks you.
