I just got delivered earlier this afternoon my new 5.11 Tactical Pants (100% cotton) and their Operator belt. Awesome is all I got to say. Very comfortable and roomy without being baggy or loose. I always wear jeans or khakis, but I will now start wearing these to work (not an office type location, but still business casual). The mobility afforded by them is quite good and one of the pockets on the left side is great for my SOG S63 and soon-to-be SOG Vulcan Tanto VL-03. In the spring, I'll get the TacLite Pro pants, but for the beginning of the cold season, these cotton pants will work very well. And the belt! What a buckle and is it rigid! I won't be carrying anything really heavy on it (maybe my Cold Steel SRK when camping and even that is light) but I did want a heavy duty belt, and this is it. The only problem that I have with it is the length of it. I'm about a 33" waist, and this belt is supposed to fit bwtween 32 and 34" waists, and if does fit me well. However, the "leftover" belt that gets secured by velcro on the end is a bit long and needs to go under the belt loops when doubled back. Because the Velcro is so strong (especially laterally) it's kinda difficult to get it cinched just right. Perhaps time will tell how that goes, but I may have to get a different type of belt to go with the pants, I hope not. Anyways, initial impressions are very good construction, fit and finish and they are comfortable and look good enough to wear in a business causal environment.
