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.
Been wearing these for quite awhile now and they are by far the BEST pants I've worn in a 30 year career so far. I didn't have a chance yet to wear them in the winter weather here in the Northeast and I may have to layer but that's fine with me though.
Well designed. Good material. Fit is very good and sizing is accurate. Great support and service from First Tactical.
I love these pants! They are the most comfortable duty pants I have ever worn in 20+ years LE. Many pockets for everything u need to carry. I wear these not only for duty but for training and even at home working around the house. The only request I would submit would be to offer a winter version without the crotch vent holes and thicker material as I find myself having to wear thermals underneath even when its in the 30's. Come mid-winter in northeast PA they may not be warm enough. Other than that I have no complaints whatsoever. Cannot find a better summer pant!
I was initially issued a pair of these for duty at work. The fits pretty great and the abundance of pockets is insane.
I absolutely love the Defender line by First Tactical... I just wish they would make this particular line for women.
