We’ve tested the waters in the last year after Eotac faded away, and we have over a years worth of feedback about customers that have moved on to Blackawk tactical pants, TruSpec tactical pants and even Vertx. Vertx seems to have gotten great reviews but not everyone is moving in that direction. I have found the Vertx product line to be the most well received tactical pants amongst our window shopping operators. You should see more and more products like this on our inventory in 2013. In the meantime, most of our customers have told us that they want cotton canvas pants, 100% cotton ripstop pants or the poly/cotton ripstop.
There are always slight differences with each pant that make it a selling point to a certain market. Most of military contractors prefer the 100% cotton ripstop cargo pants from Woolrich Elite Series Tactical Clothing because it is really the only tactical pant to go back to or stay with since Eotac has gone. Many of our Law Enforcement Officers need a pant that has some time of lining in it to keep your pants tucked in, those customers go to 5.11 tactical pants or Blackhawk tactical pants. Some tactical pants are good for the office and others for Iraq.
