Lightweight yet super durable these pants are the right choice for a wide range of outdoor activities. Constructed from durable 6.5 oz. polyester cotton rip-stop fabric with a DWR water repellent coating and double weave 91% nylon, 9% Spandex® accents, the TRU-SPEC® 24-7 Xpedition® pants are like no outdoor pants you have ever worn.;
1 Integrated soft flex panels on the hip yoke, back of the knees and front cargo pockets for ease of movement
2 Comfort fit slider waistband
3 French fly inside zipper for added security
4 Deep front slash pockets designed to hold most folding knives
5 Front facing inset stretch cargo pockets with hidden snap closure and internal D-rings
6 Left cargo pocket has zipper closure under flap for secure storage
7 Easy access DropN pocket behind right cargo pocket
8 Dual mesh zippered cooling vents on each leg at the thigh and calf area for increased air flow and temperature regulation

10 Carabiner or key chain loops on front belt loops
11 Back pockets – one with an easy access flap closure, one with a secure zippered closure
12 Articulated knees
13 Double zipper leg opening with expandable mesh lining and venting options
14 Additional layer of nylon webbing fabric for reinforced durability from boots
15 Strap adjustment with snaps on ankle cuffs and boot hooks

Summary :
These are in my opinion the perfect definition of a tactical pair of pants and besides the looks which scream tactical they have the features to make it true. When I first saw these I instantly made a mental comparison with Fjallraven trousers which I have personally worn for years and years.

For adventures in cool to slightly warm conditions, these are excellent. Great for backpacking, excellent for bushcraft and for those whom do security they have enough pockets for all of your carry needs.

Pros :
Quality – Looks to be quiet good; ykk zippers
Pockets – lots of options. Love the cell phone pocket.

Fit – true to size for me; 32×30 excellent fit – All of the 24-7 Series® pants with a comfort slider waistband run about one size larger. Large enough for an inner layer for warmth for the winter

Cost – excellent especially when you consider that you are getting what seems to be comparable quality to that of Fjallraven but at a fraction of the price.


Good drying Abilities; thanks to the material these quicker than any cotton

Tough : no rips or tears so far with my testing. Reinforced in all the right places.

Flex – these pants offer a fair amount of stretch to them so you can maneuver as you need to. You can deep squat without any issues.

Cons :

Hot. Even with the side vents which do help in breezy conditions, these pants will hold in a lot of heat and for me personally, anything about 75F is simply too hot to wear them. The warmest conditions that I have tested them out in was around 88F and it was a miserable experience…lots of sweat which was only compounded by the strenuous work which I was doing. These are perfect for cooler weather

When I received these pants there were some random threads hanging here and there. Nothing of any concern but not what I would expect to see for a pair of pants which cost around $100 retail.

Durability : This remains to be seen and I have to be honest about this. With Fjallraven trousers I have worn them for years; adventure after adventure, day after day and they have earned their status. These pants haven’t; so far so good but only time will tell if they can hold up like Fjallraven’s do.
