Clothing choices are highly subjective, but when it comes to functionality, the purely objective qualities of an ordinary pair of pants can either make them the default everyday choice or relegate them to the back of the closet.
The 5.11 Tactical Apex is a perfect example of the former. The cut and appearance are functional and utilitarian, yet not overtly “tactical.” Features include: 6.4-oz. Flex-Tac Mechanical Stretch fabric in 67 percent polyester and 33 percent cotton with a Teflon finish; a gusseted crotch, articulated knees and stretch waistband for a full range of motion and comfortable IWB carry; and low-profile thigh cargo pockets with internal magazine storage, stacked rear pockets and deep front pockets with reinforced knife clip sections.
A variety of low-key colors is available, and sizes range from 28" to 44" waist and 30" to 36" length. MSRP is $90. For more information, please visit 511tactical.com.
