Ready. Aim. Get fired up with our VersaTac pants. 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 Mid Pants are heaviest in the line and are made with extra-durable 6.6-oz Yukon Canvas weave nylon fabric, and feature a gusseted crotch and double-reinforced knees and seat. The Mid 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.
Reason For Being: Part of our “Versatac” line, the Light pants offer a lighter weight version of the Mid Pant, making them better for hot and/or wet climates.
Fabric: 2 ply, 3 ounce Duralite nylon shell, making them lightweight, breathable, but also water resistant and incredibly tough.
The best pockets around. Huge cargo pockets allow limitless storage while also including smaller pockets for sorting what you carry. A cell phone pocket allows for easy access and storage of mobile devices, and the side cargo pockets have additional zipper access for ease when seated.
RAILTEX Reinforcement: Railtex is the reinforcement nylon we put on most of our pants, similar to Cordura®. It is highly abrasion resistant and water resistant and is a second layer of defense. We reinforce the highest-impact areas of your pant: the knees, ankles, and butt, to ensure they last forever.
I have 6 pair....light to heavy....wear them to ride my motorcycle....great pocket access and drying time....

I'm 71 and I no longer go on 100 mile hikes or slosh through rain forests. Nevertheless these pants in mid light and shorts versions are about all I wear. The elastic waistband allows you to carry or not and the pants still fit. I always carry a small Surefire flashlight in the right cargo pocket and other useful items in the left. The zippers make the pockets easily accessible while sttting. The hip pockets hold a billfold securely. The pants show no sighs of wear after several years of use. They aren't cheap but long lasting quality makes them economical.

I've put 100 miles in the past three weeks hiking the St. Croix river bluffs in temperatures ranging from the mid-20's to 65. They've performed flawlessly in snow rain and sun. No chafing right out of the box.
