5.11 is most likely the world leader in tactical apparel, and is a strong contender in a wide variety of other accessories as well. As the winter months invade the Northern Hemisphere, 5.11 has stepped up to meet the challenge of dropping temperatures. Announcing the new 5.11 Taclite Flannel Pants, the industry leader is adding a flannel-lined pant to the most popular brand of tactical pants in the world.
The 5.11 Taclite pants are designed in the same manner as the famous 5.11 Taclite pants, with the addition of a flannel liner to allow the user to stay warm, without necessarily going to extra layers of clothing.
5.11 Taclite Flannel Pants
A soft and comfortable flannel lining turns one of our favorite hot weather pants into outstanding winter wear with the new Taclite® Flannel Pant. The Taclite Flannel Pant features eight pockets, our durable ripstop fabric, and a Teflon® finish for stain and soil resistance. Double-reinforced at the seat and knees, these pants won’t wear out, no matter how much sitting, hustling, and crawling through the brush you do. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to wear comfortable, invincible pants, here’s your opportunity.
5.11 Pants are extremely popular, and for good cause. Not only are they mission designed with large pockets, rip-stop material, expandable waists, drag handles, and more, 5.11 pants are comfortable and good-looking as well. The new 5.11 Taclite Flannel Pants build on that tradition, adding a flannel lining to provide warmth and comfort as the temperatures drop. Instead of bulking up with layers, these new flannel-lined pants may allow an officer to jump in and go.

I have owned many 5.11 tactical pants, and still own my original pants from nearly 10 years ago! The original 5.11 pants fit a little snug in the seat, but recent modifications have greatly improved that slight inconvenience. The rip-stop material has proven itself through dozens of training days, tactical operations, and regular wear. The pockets are plentiful, though I wish the cargo pockets were just a bit larger. As someone who works in the cold, the idea of having a pair of pants that can fulfill my operational needs and provide the added warmth is very appealing. I’ll likely own a pair of these soon.
