Product Preview: Propper HLX Men’s Pant

posted on November 4, 2019

Many tactical pants are entirely functional, but they have an austere, businesslike appearance that just screams, “I’m carrying concealed.” Not so for Propper’s new HLX (Hybrid Lightweight Crossover) Men’s Pant, which melds the durability of a tactical pant with a much more refined, professional presentation. Stretch material in the waistband and the gusseted crotch provides comfort and maneuverability, while a water-resistant treatment applied to the lightweight polyester/cotton blend fabric helps repel the elements. The $60 HLX Pant features reinforced hip pockets, front welt pockets and concealed, zippered pockets both on the sides and the rear, and is available in five colors (LAPD Navy shown).
