We choose Tru-Spec over many of the other brands based on 2 factors, price point, and quality control. We never hear about sizing inconsistencies, but there are different “fits” for some of the styles. Primarily the differences between the 24/7 Series and some of the Military BDU sizing. There is a broad selection of fabric differences, the biggest being the 65/35 Polyester Cotton Ripstop. While this material does not breath as well as 100% nylon or 100% cotton ripstop, it is definitely in the lightweight pant category. There is also a all cotton style in the 24/7 Series Tru-Spec Pants that is good for winter weather.
There are always going to be preferences on pocket patterns, and that’s our customers decision. The standard Tru-Spec Pants in the 24/7 Series has been around a long time, but I have, along with many local Federal Agencies prefer the Tru-Spec Boot cut pants “formerly know as the Gunny Boot Cut Pants” because the wallet or ID pocket has a traditional pant look, the knife pockets are slightly larger and the BDU pocket has a much more modern design for stowing phones, mag dumps or handcuffs. The Tru-Spec Eclipse pant is 100% nylon and an excellent pant for hot and humid weather and for keeping bugs off of your legs without having to load up on bug spray, We’ve had a lot of Agencies in Haiti and even Pennsylvania Game Commission buying this style.
