I got my Academy pants in the mail today. They are 5.11 Tactical Pants, 100% cotton, in black.

I tried them on, and due to the elastic in the waist, they run a little big, but they fit perfect with the belt.

I’ve been wearing them for the last 4 hours, and they are very comfortable. I haven’t tried any kind of physical exercise in them yet, so no word on breathability or ease of use, but I think they are a real winner. When I graduate, I think they will make great training pants for going to like a┬áKR Training session, or in service training.

I’m going to go for a run in them shortly, so will update accordingly!
