I ordered a pair after reading this thread. I like them allot. The fit is great and they allow full freedom of motion, while being immune to plumbers disease. I love that I can get the elusive 35" waist. The fabric does pick up crap as mentioned. I'm hoping a few washes will tone that down but I'll be just fine putting up with this minor issue if it doesn't. Before I buy any more I will be using and abusing them for a year or so, with an eye towards how well they wear and repel stains. If they still look good enough for a client meeting at work after a year in the woods, deserts and mountains, I will have found my new favorite pants at long last.
Man I love this forum...
On the vendor: I did get them from LA Police Gear as well as a few other things. They had the 35" size and a good price + a %10 off sale. I also ordered a pair of their house brand mil spec BDU pants for $16. That's a great deal to be sure but they turned out not to fit and their return policy sucks with an $8 restocking fee after you pay return shipping, so it's not worth returning them. All in all the sucky return policy and an annoying back order on a knife I ordered as well. I'm on the lookout for a better source for next time I buy Vertex.
Who ells sells them at the 50$ price point and carries all sizes?
