The clip garage acts as a secure holster for your knife, pen, or flashlight clip, effectively preventing any possible catches or snags during everyday carry.
Discreet Zippered Cargo Pockets
The discreet zippered cargo pockets feature an integrated rain cover, lanyard loop, and internal organization ensuring all your kit is secure without adding a bulky appearance.
Recessed Utility Pockets
The A2 pant features two generously-sized recessed utility pockets, designed to accommodate large cell phones and kit.
The A2 pants are the lighter weight solution I was looking for. The mesh pockets are awesome and they work great for EDC. Thanks for listening to us!
These are comfortable and look great. I love the amount and type of pockets
I was skeptical about these pants due to the stretchy material. I am generally not a fan. I got these pants and wore them to workout. They move with you. Running, jumping, climbing squatting. The stretch does allow for placement of IWB carry. Big seller for me was the pants are tactical without looking overly tactical..They are no cooler in humid weather that the V2 but I am ordering another pair after I finish review.
I was first introduced to this product line at a show I attended. I placed an order soon after and have been wearing several versions of this product line. The A2 pants from First Tactical will not let you down. Fit, comfort, durability, and pocket options with the A2 will not disappoint!!! From the business setting to field work the A2 pants are my "First" choice of pants!!
I should preface by clarifying that I am rating these pants with a specific context in mind: domestic and international travel, for personal as well as professional purposes. Especially abroad, I need EDC items such as phone, reading classes, passport, and wallet easily accessible yet secure, in a manner that draws little attention while giving a clean, professional appearance. This rules out sling bags, most tactical pants, and things like travel vests. I have 2 pairs of A2s - one in coyote, and one in black - the coyote is the better color for my personal travel, as it comes very near to looking like a pair of chinos with the exception of the cell-phone slip pockets, so 4 stars for that pair, but in black, this pant rates a 5: in black, the A2 is clean, professional, with pockets and printing from EDC barely noticeable. Material and workmanship is excellent as well. As others have noted in their reviews, the pants have more pockets and more storage capacity than the description would have you believe: each side zip cargo pocket has two internal slip pockets, perfect for a phone and wallet in one side, passport and keys/hotel card in the other, with front, rear, and slip pockets still available. Front pocket are deep and also conceal items well as items place low and inside on the leg, virtually unnoticeable and away from all other pockets. The closest competitor pant I have found is the 5.11 Ridge pant/Apex pant duo, neither of which have the easy-access slip pockets, a deal-breaker for me. Also, with a fit between the 5.11 ridge pant (snug, so everything in any pocket clearly prints) and the 5.11 apex ( loose, giving more of a casual/tactical than professional appearance), the pants nicely balance minimal printing with a clean professional fit.
