Sometimes you want pants that blend in, something more covert for when you don't want to stand out. These are not the pants for those occasions. These are the perfect pants for when you want a pocket for every single thing you carry.

Blackhawk's Lightweight Tactical Pants have, by my count, some 12 separate pockets for all your stuff. There's the four standard pockets, two front and two back. There are zippered pockets on both cargo pockets. There are not one but two discreet pockets, one in the back pocket for your wallet, another in the front right for a small, pocket-carried pistol. Lastly, twin phone pouches ride atop the cargo pockets in front.

There's no getting around the "tactical" aspect of these pants, but sometimes it's just what you need. If you're taking a class, you need a spot for spare mags, a clip point for a dump pouch and a way to make sure your wallet doesn't come popping out at an inconvenient time. These are the pants for such an occasion.

Also, there's a host of reinforcements and improvements that just make these pants work. YKK zippers provide secure closure on the pockets, a rubber grip strip keeps shirts tucked in, the main front pockets are angle-cut for pocket knives and flashlights and all wear points are reinforced.

MSRP: $71.45. Available in black, khaki, navy and olive drab green.
