My TacLite pants arrived, and they are fabu. Which is probably the first and only time someone has called police-grade pants “fabu”. I am especially pleased that they fit. Technically my legs are 31″ — an odd size that pants are never made in (men’s lengths come in 30″ or 32″) so I took a risk on 32″ and fortunately they’re not too long. The waist sits much higher than jeans, but that’s ok. They look like cargo pants.
I suspect they are not warm in winter, so will add long underwear to my list of items I need in a go-bag.
My CamelBak also arrived today, and it is smaller than I expected, but I suppose that is good since realistically, my back is not very long anyway so this will actually fit. The desert-camo pattern is nice. I am so glad I went with the military version of CamelBak rather than the consumer version. The lack of unnecessary pockets and frills is very nice and clean.
