Designed for use in a wide range of conditions for SWAT teams, high-level operators, and firearms instructors.
Awesome shorts. As an instructor they are excellent for range day in the Florida heat.
Same great material, and the perfect length!
I like them. They’re hot, but rugged a little heavy.
I purchased a pair of Defender pants a while back just to check them out, and I liked them so much I bought more of them. (along with knee pads) When I saw the option to get shorts, I jumped at it! These shorts are the absolute best! So many pockets, so functional, and very well made. I don't mind paying a premium price for a premium product at all, and these are PREMIUM. I am probably a true 37" waist, but I ordered the 40" waist size, because I always have an IWB holster for my daily carry, plus I like my clothes to fit a little more relaxed now that I am old! Now I can wear Defender lowers even in the blistering heat we are all experiencing this Summer! I love the Multicam, but really hope First Tactical expands the color options. I would buy one (or more) of every dang color, and throw out my "other brand" of tac-shorts!!
