The VersaTac line for summer! 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 Light Shorts 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. They 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.
Reason for Being: We took our popular VersaTac pants and added an option for super hot weather. The VersaTac shorts have all the function and features of the pants without half the pant legs.
Fabric: 2 ply, 3 ounce duralite Nylon Shell, same as VersaTac Light Pants
Pockets: Huge cargo pockets with both button and Velcro closure. Additional side zipper for easy access to the pockets when sitting or kneeling. Cargo pockets have additional pockets inside for organization and a cell phone pocket behind.
RAILTEX Reinforcement: Railtex is the reinforcement nylon we put on most of our pants, similar to Cordura®. It is highly abrasion and water resistant and is a second layer of defense. The VersaTac Light Shorts have RailTex on the seat, along the bottom edge, and around the pockets.
Im rough with my clothes as an outdoors person and these are not only one of the most comfortable shorts they fit well and more importantly have the functionality I cant find in other shorts. Zippered cargo pockets are not as bulky knife holder inside those pockets work well as does the wear of the material. Previously had a couple of the ultra lights that wore thru quickly but not these.

These are great everyday shorts. Plenty of storage for all those items one needs to carry. Love the "cell phone" pocket with the Velcro security closure. Sizing chart is accurate.

I like these even more than my earlier Versatac shorts. The fit is excellent and true to size. The fabric is comfy and seems very tough. Ive been living in them since they arrived and Im thinking I really should order a second pair to wear when these are in the laundry.
