I've worn multiple different manufacturer's duty pants and hated them all. If your like me and spent most of your life working out (squatting in particular) you will love these pants. I just got the VTX OA Duty pants and love them. I actually feel like I can move around, lift my legs, and squat down without feeling like I'm going to rip the crotch out. I've owned the original Vertx Tac pants now for 2 years and feel the same about those. I was concerned when Vertx came out with the duty pants that they would change the cut to the standard "one size fits all high wasted, low crotched" pants, but they didn't. They stayed true to the tactical athlete and make the best pants on the market. I even prefer wearing my original tac pants to my carpenter jeans. Thanks Vertx!
