The Defender Fabric features a breathable cotton and Cordura® Nylon blend. The 2-way mechanical stretch Nyco, is one of the first to the market and has double ripstop fabric that is moisture wicking and perfect for warm weather.
Double Tough Knee Protection
The Defender Pants feature a durable, double-layer knee pad pocket that is designed to take abuse throughout a lifetime of use. Pairs with First Tactical's Defender Knee Pads.
Despite being designed for SWAT teams and high-level operators, the Defender Pants maintain a professional look without looking overly aggressive.
Finally the defender line is available in women’s sizes. As a female K-9 handler, it has been difficult finding pants/ shirts that with stand the environments in which I encounter on deployments. Well made! I have five sets.
When will these be in wolf gray
Absolutely love these pants. I don’t understand why they’re so expensive, but they are great pants. However, I’ve noticed they’ve faded a lot from black to almost gray :(. I have a lot of first tactical pants and they all fade very fast. Being a LEO, I need to wash my pants often so that’s my only complaint. For 180 dollar pants I do wish they would keep their color at least longer. I e had these pants for 3 months.
I like crye female fit G4’s, but they’re very hard to get in my size. These fit well, are thoughtfully designed with a lot of pockets, the inseam is long enough for tall women, and the knee pad pockets are placed well. I also like the fact the knee pads can be removed while you’re wearing the pants since the zip compartment is external. Finally the waist is high enough for heavy loads on your belt. They aren’t perfect but they’re very good and I grabbed four pair.
