A few times ago, I found their gear quality went down, but now, it's better!
I'm still 5.11 addicted
Awhile ago I got stabbed in the thigh, and he tried to slash my leg wide open. He punctured my pants,and then the material bunched up and stopped the blade. The surgeon said it was 1mm away from the bone and 3mm away from my big arterie or whatever and that if the blade had done any more damage than it did I'd have died from bleeding out.
I have two pairs of the 5.11 tactical pants (Nylon Canvas). Beats similar models from for example Dunderdon in functionality, materials, and durability. The fit (as in how they look on you) could be better though it is pretty good now. Really comfortable, wear them all the time.
The prices could be lower, that model costs 70 € and the cotton ones are 60 €. So I suppose that is what you get from living in the nordic countries... Small market and high shipping costs.
