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.
We recently tested these pants (along with the Pro Performance V2 2.0 Long Sleeve shirts for summertime protection for our motorcycle units. These pants far out perform other brand's BDU-style pants with their craftsmanship and durability. They come ready for knee pads (as needed) and have plenty of pockets. The pockets are zipper closure which is a benefit so you don't have to worry about anything snagging on the flaps and gear falling all over creating a yard sale. I would recommend these as a summer motor uniform pant in combination with the Long Sleeve Pro Performance shirt.
These have become my favorite day to day and work pants. Breathable, Durable, and not overly "tactical", these pants never let me down. Finding pants that fit comfortable has always been a challenge, so having more options to get the perfect fit is a huge upside.
Men's Defender Pants
These are my fifth pair of defender pants! From the field to the casual outing there are none better looking nor more practical for the tactical male.
I picked up a pair of the Defender pants about two years ago. They had been through many range days and some duty shifts. They have held up better than I could have wanted. The color has held well and I have not had any rips tears or fraying at all. The reenforced knees are great for when kneeling down in gravel, although I would recommend getting the knee pads for this as well. They have more pockets that I had things to put in them. Over all a great product. I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.
