Simon says: “Its not enough for a shirt to be green, it has to be the RIGHT green. There are so many that get it wrong, just a bit too much lime, too pale, or just plain yuk. 5.11 get green right, in their shirts and their trousers. But there’s much more to this kit than the colour.
The shirt comes in a medium weight cotton, or a light mixed fabric. Both have the same features of pockets galore, effective sleeve straps (to keep them in place if you roll them up)and an ample length (so when you tuck them in, they stay in). They are also really well ventilated with a flap over the shoulder and back that allows airflow but doesn’t compromise comfort or heat.
The trousers are great too. They come in the same fabrics as the shirts and are a pocket fest without looking like bulky cargo pants. They are tough and super comfortable too, with careful attention paid to every detail from the zips on pockets to the flexibility on the leg if you are climbing up a steep hill or sitting. As a top layer in reasonable conditions both are fab.”

The 5.11 Covert Cargo pant offers anyone who wants a great looking pair of casual pants with some hidden solutions to all of the gear needed for undercover work or the day to day accessories of life.
Rather than place cargo pockets on the exterior of the pant legs, we have hidden the pockets so that the Covert Cargos look like a regular pair of casual pants. They feature a flat front and a total of 16 pockets: two traditional style front pockets, each with interior pockets for magazines or accessories plus two standard rear pockets and two concealed vertical thigh pockets with zippers hidden along the side seams. The large covert cargo pockets on both legs are each capable of carrying 2 30-rd AR15/M4 magazines. While the two small concealed pockets at the waist are capable of carrying two smaller 15 round magazines each. With genuine, locking-flange YKK® zippers and quality PRYM® snaps, this pant is sure to help the user blend in, in almost any environment.
