Tactical pants are an essential part of the uniform for any public safety professional. Whether you’re a police officer, EMS provider or work in security, these pants will provide the versatility you need while handling the rough and tumble of your day-to-day tasks.
Tactical pants are similar in style to cargo pants but are built from extremely rugged fabrics and materials. They feature specialized pockets for smart organization, plus swift, easy access to essential gear that you won’t find in an ordinary pair of pants. Many will also come treated with finishes such as DWR or DuPont Teflon for longevity that won’t wash out after laundering and can be found in a vast array of colors such as black, khaki, MultiCam and more.
Additionally, tactical cargo pants can be used for plainclothes detail and off-duty activities as well. Here at Galls, we carry hundreds of styles and brands of tactical pants for men and women including 5.11 Tactical pants, Propper pants, TRU-SPEC pants, Vertx pants, etc.
Types of Tactical Pants
Before purchasing a pair of tactical pants, it’s important to consider what type best suits your needs. You can find men’s tactical pants and women’s tactical pants in overt, covert and even EMS styles.
These pants tend to take on a more classic military appearance with larger pockets for extensive storage space. They’re commonly seen as BDU pants, military pants, combat pants, etc. Overt tactical pants will also typically feature drawstring leg ties for boot blousing, external knee pad access, deep-set cargo pockets, an adjustable waistband, fused pocket flaps and a gusseted crotch for easy movement.
The Galls Tac Force Tactical Pants are one of our most popular overt pants. With seven pockets and a durable poly-cotton makeup, these police pants set the standard in affordable reliability and tactical functionality. The polyester material of these Galls tactical pants provides an innate resistance to tears, stains and soil while the cotton naturally breaths and absorbs moisture. They are also available in multiple colors including khaki tactical pants.
The covert style is design for a more discreet appearance. They are made from the same great materials as overt pants, but with less obvious features such as inset/hidden pockets and a slimmer profile. Mainly worn by law enforcement/covert operators, these pants are perfect for an undercover or plainclothes look.
The TRU-SPEC 24-7 Tactical Ripstop Pants take functionality to the extreme with 14 pockets to hold your gear. An engineered dimensional fit makes these the best tactical pants for a more casual, covert appearance that can be worn on or off-duty. They feature internal knee pad pockets and adjustable waist tabs for IWB holster accommodation to keep you on the down-low. On top of that, these tactical pants with knee pads are available in 12 colors - even MultiCam in case you’re looking for a great pair of camo military cargo pants.
EMS pants are made for EMTs and first responders. The pockets are oriented for holding specific types of medical gear such as a tourniquet, IFAK kit, trauma shears, etc. These EMT pants most commonly feature reinforced knees, a gusseted crotch and an adjustable/stretchy waistband. They are also typically made from ripstop fabric with stain/liquid-resistant treatments.
The First Tactical Women’s V2 EMS Pants come complete with the features needed to optimize performance. These black tactical pants combine micro ripstop fabric with ARMS two-way mechanical stretch fabric to increase comfort and mobility. The comfort waistband accommodates a variety of positions and the knee pad pockets will accept First Tactical Knee Pads for that extra layer of protection. On top of that, these tac pants are uniquely constructed for women and come articulated at the knees for a great range of motion.
