So, I usually don't do reviews but these pants fit so well I felt compelled to do it. I am a tweener on pants sizes. 34 waist are almost always too baggy and I have to use a belt, sometimes I get lucky and they run a little closer. I can rarely ever find 33 waist in a tactical -non tactical looking pant. 5.11 has a few but in a thin material. The Carlos Ray 2.1 in size 32 fit me just like I need them to. There size chart says 32.5 and that's just how they feel with that little added stretch. I can wear them normally or in the front waistband concealed with no issues and still have some room. The only minor negative is the Flat Dark Earth is not a Magpul FDE if that is what you are needing. A little darker shade but I still like the color. Looking at other colors now.
I received my Carlos Ray pants and they fit a little too tight. I was able to reach someone on the phone quickly, who helped me do a return. I got my new pants fast and I love them! Excellent combination of sturdy construction and soft flixible fit.
Also, being very tall, I was thrilled to see the size options, which often aren't offered by major jeans brands.
the package was stolen so i cannot give a review
I will preface this by saying I love these pants. I will continue to buy these pants. I love Tactical Distributors. That being said the Quality Control on this new batch of Carlos Reys has been an issue.
For background, I work in Federal Law Enforcement and wear these daily. Normal EDC is pistol, 2x mag pouch, cuffs, belt badge, wallet/creds, knife, additional gear as mission dictates.
I ordered a pair of these a few months ago and I loved them. TD has been out of stock for sometime. They recently came back in stock and I ordered a pair of Blood Grass (same size as before). They are AT LEAST 3 inches longer than what they are supposed to be. They sent me the right size; however, they are way longer than they should be. Waist was fine. I have to roll them to keep them from dragging. I figured they would shrink in the wash so I didn't send them back. They didn't shrink enough.
I ordered a second pair in Urban Grey a couple weeks later in the same size. This time the length was right, but the waist is so big they literally fall straight down without a belt (about 2 inches too big). I should have tried them on before I washed them, but I was an idiot and didn't so I will just eat the cost and wear a belt.
Not impressed with the new batch. Pants themselves are great, but the sizing inconsistency is really disappointing. I hope you fix this.
