5 Best Tactical Pants in 2020 – Buyers Guide

I have tried and tested countless amounts of different pairs of pants so you don’t have to.

Here are my favorites that really blew my mind having excelled in a host of different ways like durability, comfort, waterproofing and value for money and a host of other factors, let me explain why these are the tactical pants out there right now!

Best Tactical Pants: My Favorite 5

#1 5.11 Tactical Men’s TacLite Pro Pants

These 511 pants are top notch quality all round and I am very impressed with the quality of the materials they have used for such an affordable price point.

One of my favorite features of these pants is the number of pockets on them, all of which are very capable, particularly the back pockets which are very big and can hold a surprising amount.

Their design particularly helps with this of being more like a traditional front pocket but on the back. It works surprising well and it comfortable to use and keep your things safely inside.

#2 Propper Men’s Lightweight Tactical Pants

These black tactical pants are made from top quality materials and have a very nice finish with no loose thread or anything of the like.

While the material used is a light material it still is very strong and durable and it also feels breathable which is an impressive combination if you ask me! While these pants are tactical pants they don’t really look like tactical pants and you could easily wear them into your office without anyone flocking an eye.

They look very clean and almost professional like which is ideal for someone who wants to look the part.

#3 Military Men’s 100% Cotton Rip Stop BDU

This tactical pants are surprising great for a very affordable price. The overall quality on these pants is  very good, they have quality stitching and the materials they have used are very rugged and durable.

They are made in the USA – the quality is much better than most of the imports that you see and all for a similar price point. I would definitely recommend them; they are great all round pants.

#4 TRU-SPEC Men’s Lightweight 24-7 Pants

If you are looking for tactical pants that look great and function just as well these are a great option for you.

The pockets on these pants are its strong point, with lots of different pockets of different sizes you are going to have an option which will be perfect for whatever things you need to bring with you.

I personally used one of the smaller side pockets for my pocket knife and one of the larger pockets for my iPhone. Both of which fit nicely and feel comfortable even when you all pockets are full up with stuff. The pair I got where a perfect fit they allowed for enough maneuverability and where not too tight like I imagined they would be.

These pants are also lightweight and are perfect for warm weather because of the breathable material they have used.

#5 Tru-Spec Tactical Pants

I tried these pants, the camo variant and wow do I like how they look, they are sure to catch everyone’s attention for all the right reasons.

The fabric on these pants are made from a breathable material along with being very comfortable to wear. The pockets on these pants are particularly deep, so if you need to bring something along that is a little bit bigger these pants may just be the choice for you.

Finally, I would like to mention the quality. The quality on these pants is 2nd to none and if I was to recommend a pair that is going to be able to withstand a lot of usage and punishment over time I am confident these pants will do an amazing job.
