We’ve been very happy to see new products in our warehouse like the Blackhawk Lightweight tactical pants. These tactical pants are very different from the 5.11 tactical pants like the Taclite pro pants. 5.11 has a large product line of tactical pants but there is plenty of room for innovation and improvements. Water resistance is very important if you are going to be in rainy environments. People can die by sleeping in environments where they never dry out and cold weather can eventually lead to death. We always have a large customer base of people that are Law Enforcement or Military but also go hunting, and sometimes there is very little difference between the product lines.
When the weather starts to warm up we see changes away from the cotton canvas tactical pants towards the lightweight material. Just like cold weather and wet environments can be dangerous, hot weather can also be dangerous if you are not wearing the right clothing. There are several styles of tactical pants to consider, but for wet environments the best lightweight tactical pants we sell are the Blackhawk lightweight tactical pants that are treated with a DWR, which means durable water resistance. That’s a big deal for avoid uncomfortable deployments in damp environments.
