I own a pair of Hardland Tactical Pants so I expected to love these and I was right. One problem I have with a lot of tactical pants/shorts is that they're way too baggy. The Hardland line is different and is more slim fitting and, in my opinion, much nicer looking than Blackhawk, 5.11, etc.
These shorts are very well made. Lots of pockets, and the normal ones are deep like I like them to be. My Samsung Galaxy S7 phone fits in the pistol magazine pockets like a glove. The stitching looks strong so I don't expect anything to come undone. These would make a nice pair of dress shorts in the summer time.
As soon as I layed my hands on these, I instantly knew these were going to be some quality shorts. Love the material that they used on them, feels extremely durable for any outdoor activity. I'm 5'9 210Lbs and usually wear 38 Waist, so I choose the 38(Xl) Waist and fit perfectly! If you are just slightly larger than a 38 but not quite a 40, these shorts have a elastic stretch to them on the waist that make them very comfortable when you squat down to pick up boxes, or anything awkward movements when your working or hiking Etc. The Velcro is decently strong enough where I don't feel like I need to wear a belt. I specifically got these for my warehouse job, and I know they are going to be perfect for that, maybe a little overkill but I love that! At first I thought these 11" versions were going to be too baggy, which I was really worried about. But they are not at all. They sit probably 1" below my knees. They have the 8" version of these shorts but were not Prime Item, and would've taken a very long to deliver. I'm super satisfied that I went with these 11", delivered the next day. These have so many secure pockets, including two cargo pockets with thick zippers, and I know cargo shorts these days aren't so cool but these are more modern cargo style with function. Has a perfect slanted, easy to reach pocket just for your smart phone which is a nice detail. Has 1.5" belt loops for those large tactical style nylon utility belts. These shorts are advertised for Hiking, working or any type Outdoor activities, and the material they use is appropriate for that but still very light, and flexible at the same time. I can see these lasting a very long time through washes. Just a reminder If you get the right size, these shorts will be excellent for whatever your going to be doing in them! Cheerz!
