New VersaTac Shorts. A whole lot of R&D went into their technical design. We developed them in conjunction with military professionals and outdoorsmen who are more the type to read Field & Stream rather than Men’s Journal. We’ve even found that U.S. Special Forces have taken a special liking to our VersaTacs. When your life is constantly in harm’s way, you want the ultimate protection in clothing. The VersaTac comes in two weights. The Mid Shorts are heavier and are made with extra-durable 6.6-oz Yukon Canvas Weave nylon fabric, and feature a gussetted crotch and double-reinforced knees and seat. The Light Pants are made with super tough yet lightweight 3-oz Duralite Nylon fabric (the same kind used in our Weatherpants), and features a gussetted crotch and double-reinforced seat. Both the Mid Pants and Light Pants sport the following: side cargo pockets with internal pockets to hold a flashlight, mag clips, and energy bars; vertical zippers on front cargo pockets that allow quick access while sitting, kneeling or driving a vehicle; and reinforced pocket openings to prevent abrasion against knife clip chafe. Front pockets close with Velcro and double-button closures, and two back pockets have flaps with Velcro and double-button closure as well. Additional Cell phone pocket now incorporated behind the top of both cargo pockets.
