I love the 5.11 pants! I was a little upset when they changed the style a couple years ago(they made them fit lower on the waist, which made me have to buy one size bigger) but overall love these pants more than others. The waist streches so there is flexiblity (I wore my same pants until I was 5 months prego- about a 12-15lbs weight gain). The color stays nice (navy) for a long time- longer than other officers have had to replace their pants. The only thing I did not like and I have tried talking to a 5.11 rep about is the cargo pockets have a zipper on the back side of the pocket instead of the top like they used to and its pretty much useless.
