Now that summer is in full swing here in the Northeast, everyone that wasn’t prepared to deal with the weather is calling for the lightweight clothing. We recently had a couple guys that worked in the LEO field and they were talking about jumping over fences and which clothing was holding up to that. He we go again, another person pissed off that we don’t have the Eotac 302 shorts in stock. The Eotac shorts were in stock about a year and a half ago and were the first sign something was wrong with the company when they never arrive right before the summer last year. The funny thing is guys that had them almost 2yrs ago are still wearing them.
The 5.11 tactical shorts that I have tended to feel like brown boxes that were cut around my waist and that silly back pocket strap makes me feel like I’m in a marching band, but people seem to buy them. The only decent option left out there seems to be the Woolrich Elite tactical shorts. The style 4905 are probable the most versatile but some guys don’t like the length on them and really want 7 1/2 inseams. The only issue we’ve had about the Woolrich Elite shorts is that they do seem to wear out in the crotch area faster than the Eotac shorts. Mostly because of the way the stiching was done.
