Whether you’re working in the office, conducting real-life training on the range in professional attire, or taking your smoking hot wife to dinner, the 5.11 Edge Chino pant has you covered.

The Flex-Tac® twill gives a professional appearance without sacrificing mobility and the Teflon® finish adds water & stain resistant feature that is much appreciated. Other top features include MAG pockets at the back yoke; a media drop pocket, and a gusseted inseam.

The only issue I have is the slim fit design is troublesome for weightlifters. If you don’t skip leg day you will need to buy up in size. I am accustomed to squatting multiple days per week so this is a common issue for me; I usually buy up in size and have the clothing tailored. I wear a 32-inch waist but had to go up to a 36 inch to fit my legs and seat. Other than that, I like the pant. If you can get away with a more casual dress pant the Edge Chino pant from 5.11 is a solid choice. Check out the video for more details.
