Built for the operational athlete who prefers a low visual profile, Vertx tactical pants are deceptively functional. The trousers were developed for a federal agency to fight like a pair of BDUs yet be as discreet as run-of-the-mill khaki trousers. The pants offer excellent security with a concealed, one seam zipped pocket and back pocket credential flaps to keep valuables in place. Gain silent entry into pocket openings without noisy Velcro. Not only are its pockets stealthy but well organized. The internal Haul pocket fits your mobile coms as perfectly as a set of handcuffs or an AR magazine. The pants redefine comfort with a gusseted crotch, articulated knee and hip, and stretch waistband.
The Vertx® Original Pants started a revolution in tactical apparel by combining the superior functionality of a battle garment with a highly coveted low-profile design. Working in conjunction with a top federal agency, world-class designers developed the streamlined appearance and superior fit in order to bring comfort and performance to the forefront.
Vertx® Orginal Pantsfeatures:
I had a pair of these for two years and just bought a second pair. The hold their shape and waist very well - no stretching out even with almost daily wear. The did fade to a lighter navy, but that's expected with a lot of hot water washing. They are heavy enough to cut the wind and cold a bit, while still giving great range of motion. I wear them for EMS runs, and under my turn out gear.
These are the best pants I have worn, nice layout of pockets, articulated knees and waist, quiet material, and I look like a pile of leaves in the bushes. Wear them daily for work and training K-9's. And the price is right for this combat athletic apparel.
Wow, these are everything I ever wanted in a combat pant, hidden security pocket, articulated knees and waist, flush cargo pockets, athletic fit (I train K-9's 24/7), and in Kryptek Highlander! They are quiet for stalking, and you look like a pile of leaves while in the prone position. Best combat athlete camo pants available! CQB K-9 Team wears only Kryptek.
When I first secured this (and several other kryptek garments) being manufactured by Vertx in March 2013 I was blown away by the attention to detail, form and fit and the low vis profile of the trousers. I have been wearing them on every range day and they have not failed me in either the late winter or during the summer seasons. The pattern has not faded in over 25+ washes and to date I have no challenges with them. Sleek form and functionality helps stem any snagging and the pocket layout works very well securing the items yet allowing very quick access. I purchased x2 pairs in Mandrake and I am still on my first pair with no concerns. Just very well built piece of gear.
As a tactical medical instructor, our students expect a certain level of professionalism. With the Vertx Original Pants and Vertx Coldblack Short Sleeve Polos, our instructors are able to carry additional training aids if need be, demonstrate skills, and still maintain a professional look the last hour of a 40hr course.
Very good pants. I have two pairs now, and two pairs of the shorts. The sizing may not be what you are used to in other pants however. I usually get 32x32 for Wrangler cargo pants, but to fit these Vertx pants I needed 33 waste x 30 inseam. I am not in law enforcement. I just like these because of all the pockets and how secure they keep things, without looking tactical.
These pants are the closest thing to perfection when it comes to clothing, or in this case, pants! The material is comfortable w/o being too baggy, and it feels abrasion resistant. Compared to my dockers, these pants are tough! The double stitching is a nice touch along with the gusseted crotch! I have noticed that not all pants have an oversized comfortable gusset like these pants do! Thanks Vertx for the keen functionality, and don't fix something that's not broken, please!
I purchased a pair of Vertx pants after they were recommended to me by one of our SWAT team members. I'm in charge of a unit that targets violent criminals and need pants that will carry spare magazines and other items with out looking like BDU pants. I have all the other major brands, and the Vertx brand are the best. They look less like tactical pants and are much more comfortable. I put in a lot of 14 to 18 hour days doing surviellence. The Vertx pants are comfortable and still hold up and look good.
Currently own 3 black pairs and 1 OD green pair. I really appreciate the understated look/design of these trousers and the pockets are some of the best layed out for me, I'm left handed, so the zip pocket doesn't interfere with anything I clip on my string side. I wouldn't want this to change...but appreciate that it's probably the wrong side for right handed people. The major bad point for me, is the amount of lint and dog hair the black trousers attract...it's bordering on ridiculous. The oldest pair I have, have stopped attracting it so bad, but they are so worn/faded they are not suitable for smart situations anymore. Fix this and I'd buy no other brand of trousers.
I've been a dedicated user of RR 5.11s for over 25 years. The 5.11s are great trousers, but having recently purchased a pair of Vertx 'pants'(OCS habits, even from the 1970s, die hard), I have a new favorite. The material is distinctly canvas-like, but a bit smoother- without being silky at all. The fit is great for me- roomy and non-binding anywhere, without being baggy. As an older guy, claiming to still be fit (but admittedly heavier), the sizing runs true. I particularly like the cut of all the pockets. The hand pockets don't bind your wrist, the rear pockets are not too deep and the thigh pockets don't bellow. All-in-all, an excellent product so far...
I've got 3 pairs of these and just ordered a couple pair of the lightweight. They work well from business casual to field use. Anytime I think of buying a different pair of cargo pants, I compare to these and the Vertx always wins out. That said, I seem to stain these quicker than other pants I own, I'm not sure why? The other problem that really should be fixed is the cut of the front pockets for clipping on a knife. The flat area for clipping on a knife is not deep enough for even a sub-3" folder. Additionally, loose items tend to fall out when sitting. I learned this the hard way by losing a very expensive pocket knife. I've talked to others with similar problems. I will be interested to see if Vertx listened with the new lightweight design.
I have been wearing the Vertx pants for a few months now, and have to say that I am surprised at how well these pants have held up, and how well the features work. The comfort on these pants is far above all the other "tactical" brands that I have tried (and I have tried most all of them). The pockets work thigh pockets work perfectly, and have no noisy Velcro on them..The AR-15 holder in the thigh pocket holds the magazines exactly where they are supposed to..I wore these pants in an NRA Law Enforcement Patrol Rifle Instructor class, and had better luck with these than a couple of the other brands that I took. Again, I have to say the comfort is way above what I expected, they fit perfectly, and look nice enough to wear out on the town...as they do not scream "TACTICAL" like some of the others do. I am starting to replace all my work pants with Vertec!
Great pants, extremely comfortable and very durable. I tried a lot of tactical pants, looking for perfect pair and these are it. I need something to hold up in a non-permissive environment and still look professional, Vertx is that and then some.
Im currently in Afghanistan and wear my few pairs of Vertx pants everyday. Besides the obvious reasons, low profile pockets, inside phone pocket, perfect fit to size, stretch waist, comfort. These pants seperate me from everyother POS out there in 511 gear. What used to just be operators, now every contractor here wears 511. Vertx provides me the ability to seperate my self from the rest. I get asked constantly what brand they are and only share w/ individuals who should wear them.
That's right, buy big. I'm of slight build. In the store, a 29" waist and 32" length fit perfectly. However, after a few washes, things didn't fit right. Gave them to my brother. I bought a 30x32. Better fit, but shrank in length. Finally, I decided on a 31x36 and had two inches hemmed. Glorious. Bought three pairs. Wish list on a redesign: deeper front pockets, additional concealed zippered left front pocket. More wrinkle resistant. That said... 5.11, Blackhawk, etc., don't hold a candle. AND I don't look strange(er).
I got a pair in black about a month or two ago, and am pretty satisfied so far. I'm a floorman (bouncer) at a multilevel nightclub. I need to need to carry flashlights, radio, marker, very small med kit--in addition to personal items--all without looking too tactical, and with a full, unhindered range of motion. This is the primary reason for the purchase. I'm satisfied in this regard. The black does attract and show dirt and lint--keep a lint roller handy if you need to wear them into the office. And the summer heat hasn't hit yet, so we'll see how they do then. bottom line: they are sharp looking, comfortable, and if they are still going strong in a couple months, I will get another pair.
Best fitting pants I've had. Stretch fabric allows close fit and ease of movement. Pockets are arranged perfectly. Best of all, they don't look "tactical" to the casual observer. There is still some room for improvement, however. The fabric tends to snag. I now have a few pairs I cannot wear to work because they have small holes in the fabric and the hemmed cuffs are fraying. Maybe I like these pants so much I wear them more than anything else. Maybe it's normal wear-and-tear. I still think they are the best pants I've had.
The reviewer who said these are better than 5.11s is dead-on. Lightweight but warm, comfortable and durable material. Well-placed pockets that don't go overboard. These are low-key, tasteful and FUNCTIONAL utility pants. I'm 6'4, 250, ordered them in my regular jean size (38x34) and found them just right -- closer cut than BDUs but not huggy-snug.
Just received my first pair of VertX Pants, and compared to the other "tactical" trousers on the market there 's only one term that can describe these pants - PERFECT! With them in more civvi-tac colors like grey, sage a. o. they would be the only kind of trousers I will wear.
I love the pants. Very comfortable and durable. Suggestions I would make about the pants are: 1) Deeper front pocket. 2) Sew the rear pockets closer to the center seem about 3/4 of an inch. Because the rear part of the pants have extra material to allow for more flexibility, where the pockets are now makes the pants look wide. This might be just a fashion thing but you want you pants to look good right? :)
So I was at Urban Shield and I met your Rep, Doug. I told him my unit was looking for an alternative uniform to the suit and tie we usually wear. He showed me your new pants and new Polo shirt. He gave me one of each to try and show off to the rest of our unit. I have worn them both a few times and absolutely love them. The cargo pockets are concealed so the pants don't look so military and have an inside pocket that is the perfect place for my Iphone. The pants also have a stretch waist band which is really comfortable. The pants are cut perfectly and feel and look great. They are very comfortable. The Polo shirt is lightweight, but not flimsy like most lightweight polo shirts. It fits great and does not wrinkle easily. The cool factor is double. You look cool and it keeps you cool. The two items I have tried are awesome. The only drawback is the pants do have to be ironed and that is a difficult because of the way they are cut. Not much you can do about that a
I have worn pants from other brands but none compare to the fit and style of Vertx. They are perfect for work but can easily be worn outside of work hours without appearing to be "tactical" pants.
I own two pairs in 31x32. The material and fit are great and the articulated knee is a thing of beauty. I can assume just about any position I need to in complete comfort with your cut. My issues are mostly with the pockets, as I suspect is the case for most people. The backs pockets are neat and I appreciate the fact that they don't scream tactical. If you could add some velcro or some other clever way of keeping the contents in while maneuvering that would be great. As for the front pockets, these are a mess for me! They're just not deep enough and the curved profile makes all my goodies fall out. The way the inside curves in from the bottom opening where the knife is supposed to go makes my EDC blade go in at a forward angle and keeps getting pushed out my my leg as I walk/run. The zipper pull for the secret pocket ends up next to my knife as well and thus I'm unable to access that without taking the knife out -not good. I would kindly suggest doing away with this pocket and
I have three pairs of these, and overall they are great. They're durable and comfortable, and have a less casual look than most cargo pants. I don't feel underdressed wearing them at work in a business casual environment. I really like the design of the cargo pocket flaps, and the articulated knees are a nice touch. While I understand the concept of the utility notches in the side pockets, I'm not that big a fan of them. I keep a folding knife in my right side pocket and a flashlight in my left, and the notches hold these items at kind of an odd angle. I would prefer that the space below the notch extended straight down. The internal pockets in the cargo pockets are great, so much so that it would be awesome if there could be two on each side. I carry a lot of stuff in there, and an additional internal pocket would help keep things organized better.
They feel like you're going snowboarding and the smallest inseam is 30" with a rise that's very generous. Too long for anyone 5'6" and under, yet the military height minimum is around 5' (for men, 4'8" for women).
The best tactical pants I have ever bought! I've tried them all and Vertx is the best hands down. Comfort/appearance/functionality, these pants have it all.
Until recently, the only pants I ever wore for training venues were 5.11 BDUs. While they were functional, the quality and fit of Vertx gear is far superior. One of the best things about Vertx pants are their ability to provide a functional, durable pant that is also lower profile in appearance without sacrificing performance. Fantastic job and thank you for supporting the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
The high waist reminds me of Amelia Earhart's era, but you know what? Right on! We can't be restricted to low-rise pants only. These are fashionable pants, if you're ready to look different. I wish they came in odd lengths like 31, and it would be nice if the material were magically more resistant to abrasion, and if they were about $20 cheaper, or came with a 5.11-brand 1.75" belt (since these pants look ridiculous without a belt). But altogether, great pants. Oh, and more color selection would be good too.
I now wear these pants more often then I wear jeans, Vertz pants are so comfortable and they hold my load-out extremely well. Right now I carry a knife, flashlight, baton, wallet, and phone (eventually these will be my main CCW pants)and I barely notice anything on my person. the deep pockets on the sides leave a lot of room, and they're low profile which is probably my favorite feature, that or the angled knife pocket. Which allows for a better grip and smoother deployment. Great job on an awesome pair of pants, can't wait to buy more.
The issues I've had with these pants are mostly confined to the 'break in' period for the fabric. I find that the fabric does not have a very soft hand, it's rather stiff and remains that way for quite a while. After a few weeks and a bunch of washings they definitely became more comfortable. The sizing, for me, is spot on and they move with me. I never find that the pants are impeding my movement. For discreet wear they are almost impossible to beat. It would be nice if they made an overt pair of pants as well. The fabric and the cut are already setup, they just need to add some more pockets for an overt tactical pant.
Excellent, I love them. Of all the "tactical" pants i've worn these are by far the best. The sizing is good the pockets are spacious and functional and the knees never feel tight or bind. My first pair was from a company rep for test wear purposes and I have since purchased some at my own expense.
I bought 2 pair about a month apart. They are very comfortable and functional. I like the zippered front pocket for my wallet and the pockets in front are great for cellphones/pistol mags/cameras. The only problem I have is the 2nd pair was a bit smaller in the waist than the 1st pair. The 2nd pair is fine except when wearing my IWB holster.
I've been rotating between 2 pairs of Vertx pants for quite some time. The fit and comfort are far higher than any of the other tactical pants I've worn. I refuse to wear my 5.11's anymore. Though comparable in looks and price to the 5.11, Vertx just exceeds them.
I absolutely love my pants. The fit finish and feel are excellent. The waist is true to size (unlike most American pants) and the pants do shrink a bit so you have to be sure to measure properly. I wish they were a little more easy care in the wrinkle resistance department. The articulated knee feels great but doesn't lend itself to pressing with a crease. Id like to wear them to work every day but find that they are a little more difficult to press than others. I also wish the rear pockets were a slash type for a dressier appearance.
I have switched all of my 5.11, Woolrich and EOTAC's to Vertx. They are the best fitting pants I have ever worn. Also, they did not shrink at all when I washed them.
Recently I bought a pair of pants and a polo at Cruse Uniforms & Equipment in Little Rock, AR. The first time I wore them was in an IDPA match and had them on for 10-11 hours total that day and they are good-to-go! Thanks for a nice product.
First day in the new Vertx pants. Very comfortable and look great, but will take a little bit getting used to from the TruSpecs. Wish they had pocket knife pocket on the front pant leg, but still really like them. If they hold their color better than the others they'll be worth the extra money and I'll be sold.
Was just issued 2 pairs of the desert tan pants. Testing them out for my department so far outstanding.
By far the best pants I've owned. I'm not a true operational athlete but I am a network operations athlete. These pants have held up great while crawling around in a data center and provide adequate storage in the pockets. The magazine pouch may not come in handy for holding a magazine for me during the day, but it definitely holds a set of cat5 crimpers secure. The only gripe I have is I wish the zippered storage pocket zipped down instead of up.
I love my VERTX pants, I bought 2 pair, way better than other brands I have used. Any chance on using the Ripstop Nylon for warmer weather in plain colors? If so, I would buy 2 more pair of them tomorrow!
Very good job on the pants. however, I was surprised that there weren't any knee inserts for knee pads. Why was that taking out of the design of the pants ?
Just got my first kit of VERTX gear (polo and tactical trousers) delivered to me in Central Africa. I'm impressed. Now let me put them to the test :-)
I have five pair of pants and love them. I wear them to work everyday and especially like them for shooting. Great range pants.
I have at least 7 pairs of pants and polos and I always want to wear my pants for sure. They fit great, feel comfortable all day long, and they don't "stick out" like my 5.11's do. I do miss the slash pockets on my 5.11's, so that's the one major thing that could be improved with these pants. Mainly the rear pockets, a flap like the cargo pockets would be great. Also, if there were two organizer pockets in the cargo's, that would be awesome as well. All-in-all, I love these pants and will be wearing them every time I deploy again and again. They make the transition from tactical to practical, from the field (dealing with E-somethings) to the office (dealing with O-somethings). Great product. Decent prices. Excellent value.
Gang, theae are perfect paramedic pants. They look and fit great. I wear them both at work and play. Great pants. I'm sold!
Guys...Love the pants... How about making some khaki's in the same fabric as the multicam...they would be perfect in Florida's sweaty climate
Just got my backordered Desert Tan 32X32's in and am extremely pleased. And I got a free sticker! Thanks guys! I need to branch out into some multicams now :)
In July of this year I ordered a pair of the Vertex pants in a green color and a polo shirt in a tan color. I am impressed with the fit and comfort of both the shirt and pants in the Afghan desert environment where I operate. The pants beat 5.11 pants hands down. The only drawback is they fade quickly on the seams, leaving a tan color on every seam that gives them an appearance of being dirty. The shirt holds up to the claims of being cooler. It is definately cooler than any other polo I own. The only draw back is it does not get along with my tac vest, and has been picked on the shoulders where my vest strap ride. It may be due to the material it is made of? Overall I am satisfied with the comfort of the products. The only suggestion I have is to attempt to improve the durability and colorfastness. For the price, one would expect them to be a little more durable.
Best pair of cargo pants I have ever owned!
l Love my pants, just wish they were a little more wrinkle/ stain resistant.
Love the cargo pants. Gives me the space I need for a short leash or muzzle while still maintaining a lower profile while on support missions.
GREAT pants! I have 3 pair good for casual and dress casual. Its a tac pant Chiefs can finally wear.
I own 3 pair of your pants and have to say I love them...very nice indeed. I wore them while working in Iraq....great stuff, I plan on ordering one of your new gunfighter tops and the new Vertex patch
Hope it's OK to post this here... This just shows why Vertx are my favorite pants for absolutely everything. Notice how they support every aspect of movement without requiring that little hike or adjustment. With Vertx, you just move... Thanks guys!
I just purchased my first order, which included the tactical pants, and grey sweatshirt. The pants and SS and very comfortable and practical. Shipping was very fast. I will be switching from 5-11. God Bless
I love my Vertx pants! Only change I would make is a better way to secure things in the pockets. Yes they are deep but they still make it so things work their way out of them when sitting down. Other then that Love them.
I love my Vertx pants, for what it's worth; I would like to see the back pockets in the same style/cut that the cargo pockets are.
so just bought my 2nd pair in LE Black they look amazing and my roommate wants a pair really badly. spreading the love. thanks for being so awesome guys
Got my pants in last week and love them. I must have shrunk though order 36 length and they seem a little long. Anyway good stuff will order again soon. Thanks
I have recently purchased a pair Vertx's pants and am extremely satisfied! Thank you for such a quality product! I will definitely buy from Vertx again.
Would like to see these produced in a convertible zip-off pant leg variant.
For a pair of cotton tactical cargo pants, you simply cannot do better than these. I've owned every brand imaginable including the big names that cost an arm and a leg. There may be pants worth over $100 but the budget of people in the line of work who require this kind of gear can't always support that kind of spending. That's where Vertx comes in. Take Arc'Teryx styling (these are nearly identical in design to the old "Candidate" pant), add Feccheimer's (Flying Cross) production power, give it a dose of operator input and you get a great pair of pants. The finish isn't as pristine as Arc'Teryx, but the price isn't astronomical either. But overall it far surpasses what you would expect from a $50 pair of pants. The branding isn't as conspicuous as another law-enforcement brand that started out in the climbing business; but that's a good thing when you don't want to stand out as Mr. Tacticool. Construction is far sturdier than your big-box store cargos, with a gusse
The good - Side pocket design Roomy crotch Back pockets with internal flap The Bad - Snap button - no secondary button Waist - rides too high Look/Fit - They look like they were made for a construction worker not law enforcement. Doesn't hold a neat appearence for public wear. Extra knee material - Squat once and the knee material stays popped out. Once again... doesn't look good for public use. The REALLY BAD They shrunk after washing!! I can't even wear them any longer. The waist lost at least an inch and the length lost at least an inch as well. With boot, they now look like high waters. They also fade after washing. And again... not good for professional public use. I would market this pant toward the Carhartt crowd.
These pants are awesome! I wear these pants not only at work, but I also wear them out casually. I work with a team of 80 Operators that have been issued these pants, and everyone agrees they are the best tactical pants they have ever worn. They look professional and fit great because they come in inseam/waist sizes.......not just small, medium or large sizes that you see with typical BDU pants.
These are probably the most comfortable pants I have purchased. The cargo pockets are great for remaining discreet when empty, and holding a lot when otherwise. The security pocket is really nice too, and the normal front pockets are really deep. I like how you can also wear the pants in a relatively formal setting as well as on a day of hiking. There are so far only two things I have noticed that could use some improvement. I bought the khaki colored pants, and they have already stained. The stains came from only a little dirt, somethint that wouldn't have stained anything else. The back pockets also get to me. The idea they have is nice, but not very practical. My wallet never really stays under the security flap, even when I force it up under it. So if I I am in a situation where I move a lot, the wallet goes in a cargo pocket. I think the rear pockets would be better if they had a similar opening design as the side cargo pockets. It would still look sleek and pr
The cut is excellent for doing physical activity like runs with the cadets and I have used the pants for bike patrol. They don't have the BDU look, but still have the function. I would consider wearing them for regular uniform wear, but the black fades too quickly. I have black pants from another company (name sounds similar to an emergency number) that have lasted me many seasons without fading.
I bought these for training just out at the range but decided to wear them in a formal setting tonight with a button up collared shirt and they worked just as well in that capacity. My only gripe is price drop the price of these by $10 and I would have had a hard time saying no to buying another pair.
I recently bought a pair of Vertx pants after I heard about the company raising money for a fallen SEAL from my home state of Arkansas. It made a huge impression on me to hear about that kindness. I'm no operator but I wear my Vertx at my job and they are the most popular pants on the job. They look really professional and they are built tough so I don't have to worry about embarrassing tears or other quality issues. My ONLY recommendation is that these pants should be made in the USA. I know it would increase the cost but it would be worth it. I will definitely be purchasing more pants in the future.
Excellent pants. Just a brief note to advise any men whose natural inseam is 31" that you may be best served by buying the 32" and taking up the bottom by an inch. That will still give you a "full break". (If you don't like any "break", you could try the 30.) Regarding the waist, bear in mind the waist on tactical pants is higher than on jeans, so if your tummy is larger than your waist, bear that in mind!
Really pretty good pants comfortable and well made. Belt loops are in the way for holster wear and I had to have mine moved. The front pockets would be better if they were a little deeper.
I recently purchased a pair of Vertx pants and really like them. I usually wear Blauer EMS pants, but find the fit and cut of the Vertx to be superior. Enough pockets to carry all of my stuff and they look good, to boot! My only complaint is, they attract lint... but, if that's the worst, big deal!
I've purchased the original "tactical pants" that most every agent has. The Vertx were brought after a special they had. I can't say enough good things about these pants. The side cargo pocket is the best design I've ever used. Lays flat when you don't need it and expands when you do. The built of these pants is high quality. Nice double stitch that is close together making its durability/true design intentions even that much more discrete. I've used them on the range and in my daily LEO duties. Being true to size, I purchased my exact size and they fit perfect even after washing. You'd be crazy not to buy a pair and give Vertx a try!
I recently retired after thirty years with twenty years in the Criminal Warrants Division of one of the largest agencies in the country. These pants would have been perfect for my assignment. Working casual, but able to throw a blazer on for court, these pants would have fit in anywhere. Comfortable yet sturdy. I would have preferred a french fly, but that's a minor quible. These pants are the best bar none. I'm replacing all my other pants for these. If they ever come out with a blue denim model I'll be first in line for a pair.
These are the best pants I have ever had. The Articulated Knee is great for running.
The Vertx pants are far superior to any bdu I have ever worn.
I worked the other night out at the Police Academy and wore the pants. The guys all liked them and asked how they could get information about them.
Overall the clothing was outstanding! I would recommend to any operator!
