Police Product Test: The Force Special Ops Cargo Pants

These versatile trousers are durable, comfortable, and full of handy pockets.

February 01, 2009  |  by Scott Smith - Also by this author


Times have changed when it comes to uniforms. In many agencies, gone are the days of the wool/polyester pants with the outer leg braid. Today, agencies are transitioning to uniforms that serve more than one function. The Force Special Ops Cargo pants are a fine example of pants that can multi-task.

The Special Ops Pants are available in black, brown, navy, and silver tan to meet your department's color requirements. The fabric is tough, color fast, and wears well. And if you take them out of the dryer they are truly wash and wear. While I didn't subject them to crawling through mud and such, day-to-day spills and stains from coffee, soda, and ketchup washed right out. This is something that can't be said for other pants on the market.

I found the Special Ops Pants to fit and feel good on. They are cut to fit through the seat and thighs, giving you freedom of movement whether you are sitting, kneeling, or contorting your body while working. I even found the pants to be comfortable while on a couple of four-hour road trips.

No matter how much gear you have, the Special Ops Pants has pockets galore to carry all of your stuff. There are two cargo pockets, two hidden calf pockets, as well as front slash and rear pockets. The cargo pockets lay flat when not filled with stuff and this makes the pants look good for duty, while giving you a place to carry or stow magazines during training or working on a tactical team.

I found The Force's Special Ops pants to work well for duty, training, and general casual wear. They don't scream "cop" and are designed to be quality all around duty pants.
