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.
So, I was given a set of black First Tactical Defender to try out. I had black sets from other companies so I wasn’t looking for new stock. I just used whatever was clean. I realized that there is a huge difference in fit and wear. I started washing the Defender set every week so I’d have it to wear every day. I liked the design so much, that when it came time for a different color, I bought the same brand/model in two different colors. I know what I get from the Defender series. If I had a criticism, the loop Velcro on the shoulder could be larger to accommodate a flag or larger patches. I do love the soft loop as it doesn’t collect lint or stick to anybody else walking by. Big fan.
I wear these pants every day
