I really put these pants from Propper to the test. I wore them in place of my khaki pants at events and they were very comfortable. I wore the pants while working on my property in the woods and there were no issues. They dry very quickly when compared to traditional tactical style pants. It seems to me that the sizing of the pants is just a touch small, but still very comfortable. I plan on wearing them until they fall apart! One negative is the pants are very prone to wrinkling. Keeping in mind these pants are summer weight... I am looking forward to trying them in the winter just to see how cold I get. All in all, a very good product and I strongly recommend them to anyone.
These are very nice summer weight tactical pants. The cut, size, and material are all quite impressive. I gave the comfort rating of 4.1 only because there wasn't much give in the material, but they were still extremely comfortable. I used these pants on the range and for hiking. The material breathes very well and sheds liquids nicely. Wearing these pants during hot and humid weather, they felt very comfortable, the material didn't stick to the skin or block the breeze. The construction appears to be very durable. They have held up to a variety of physical tasks without any noticeable damage, fraying or separating of seams. This is a great pair of pants from Propper.
The label on the pants I received stated they were for a 34-inch waist, 32-inch inseam. That size normally fits me just fine in most brands. As soon as I put these on, my kid made a crack about skinny jeans. The thigh area was ridiculously tight. In the interest of a getting a complete review, I passed them on to a thinner teammate with the same waist size. He had the same problem and commented that they would never fit someone with normal quadriceps. We then tried a third candidate with an even smaller frame. Same result. They just weren't wearable. They look like nice material with some good features, but if they can't be worn, it’s moot.
The Summerweight Tactical Pant by Propper is a 94% nylon, 6% spandex pant that is extremely lightweight and flexible. There are just enough pockets to be useful, without being cluttered and the zippers and buttons are well-made and reliable. As the name implies, these pants are made for hot weather. The material feels similar to a pair of board shorts. Long term and hard use durability may suffer but comfort is top notch. The sizing seems to run a little bit tight and the material wrinkles easily, but for their intended purpose, these pants are well-made and comfortable. These pants would probably be best for detectives, foot patrols, community resources or casual wear.
