The second release in our Tactical Line, inspired and co-created by members of the U.S. Special Operations community, the Tactical Pant was diligently designed with the durability and functionality you need for a long ruck or a day on the range while still maintaining an understated aesthetic for everyday wear. Every inch of the Tactical Pant was purpose built for optimal performance anywhere and everywhere.
THE TACTICAL PANT
THE WEAR TESTING TEAM
Military training is about being ready for unpredictability and it requires gear that is equally prepared. By working with former Navy SEALs, Marine Raiders, Army Rangers and Green Berets to develop our Tactical Pant, we’ve seen first hand the importance of versatility, resiliency, and functionality in each and every aspect of these men’s physically demanding lives. From training in the gym or on the range, to professional and personal life, our team of tactical athletes demands gear that can keep up and transition just as fast as they can. After months of close collaboration, we’re incredibly excited to launch the second product in our Special Operations tested and vetted Tactical Line with a pant as adaptable, resilient, and unique as the impressive group of men who inspired them.

“Not only are the Tactical Pants comfortable for all day wear, but they hold up in challenging environments from the freezing temperatures of the Montana Back Country to the hot dry summer climate on the ranch. These pants out perform my similar weight pants I own.”
“The Tactical Pant is exceptionally durable. I beat these pants up while in the mountains for hours on end or while wrestling 250+ lbs cattle to the ground. And guess what? Not a scratch or tear. I'll wear these pants anywhere and everywhere because they will perform time and time again."
“I wear these pants everywhere from training at the range to hiking, and even around town. It's the most versatile pant I've ever seen withstand my rugged lifestyle. I normally hate the feel of standard tactical pants and I've blown out every other athletic pant that I've owned... until now."

When creating a pant functional enough to meet the demands of military life but comfortable enough to be worn all day every day, there were a few non-negotiables. The pants had to be durable enough to stand up to the constant friction and pressure from rucksacks and the unpredictability of the terrain yet provide a full range of motion to create ultimate versatility. And just like the rest of our Tactical Line, it had to meet the specific needs of the military community: easy to wash, ultra-tough, secure pockets, permanently odor free, convenient and comfortable, and more. The Tactical Pant addresses all of this, establishing itself as the ideal pant for men who not only train, but also live, with military intensity.
FROM THE RANGE
TO THE ROAD
When developing the Tactical Pant, the biggest challenge was finding a heavy-duty fabric durable enough for the demands of military life but comfortable enough to be worn anywhere and everywhere, for hours on end, day after day. While a hard dichotomy to navigate, we were able to find just the right balance with a 4-way stretch, canvas fabric that allows for a perfect fit and full range of motion but stands up to the harsh wear and tear of our wear testers' physically taxing lifestyles.
- 4-way stretch canvas fabric provides the ultimate mix of durability and range of motion
- Ultra-durable fabric scored above industry standard for abrasion resistance
- Fabric treated with DWR provides superior water repellency
- Reinforced belt loops to ensure longevity
- Incorporation of knee darts and gusset to provide full range of motion
FROM THE RANGE
TO THE ROAD
When working with the former Navy SEALS, Army Rangers and Marine Raiders on our wear-testing team, we examined the pain points of their current tactical pant operations to create a product that fills a major hole. While they had a handful of indestructible pants designed to stand up to harsh conditions, there was not a single pair that was comfortable or sleek enough for all day, everyday wear... Until now.
- Midnight fabric for optimal performance in a variety of temperatures and conditions
- Quick drying and treated with permanent anti-odor technology allows for active use and multiple wears before washing
- Side adjuster tabs ensure a secure, perfect fit
- Grey man design allows you to retain a casual look without sacrificing functionality
READY FOR ANYTHING
The guys we built the Tactical Pant for live the same way they train: with intensity, purpose, and readiness for the unpredictable. That's why we worked with our team of Special Ops Forces members to create a product that excels in everything they encounter. From pockets, to zippers, and waistbands, we obsessed over every single detail of the Tactical Pant and incorporated features that serve the wide ranging needs of our wear testers.
- Superior stability waistband designed to support concealed carry and lay flat to prevent chafing from packs or rucks.
- Reinforced front pocket for knife storage
- Two zip close, no bounce utility pockets hold your phone and other essentials
- Hidden back zip pocket for discreet and secure storage.
