My buddies at LA Police Gear have seen a lot of pants and hear a lot of user comments so I was excited to get a hold of this latest tactical pant design. For starters they are made of a lightweight 6 oz 60 % poly / 40% cotton rip-stop material making them great for hot weather environments. They don't have any cool Teflon coatings or anything, however the fabric is treated with color-fast to resist fading.
DIMs: Main compartment: Approx 23" x 8" x 8" Exterior Pockets: Approx 8.5" x 3.5" x 5"
While browsing the internets I saw the original version of this bag getting some good praise and the unique shape caught my eye. After looking it up to purchase I noticed an "Extended" variant that you can see that I ended up with.
This is just a preview till I get a good long gun in there to beat up on it, but thought I'd spread the word. It is just like the 36" version shown earlier, but with more length. At 50" you can fit a M24 with supressor in this badboy. I wish the tie-down velcro loops were modular or there were more of them since guns can vary quite a bit. Luckily the ones in there make do most of the time. The case still even comes with 2 rifle mag pouches. I didn't "need" this offhand, but my LAPG buddies had it on a fire sale: <LAPG CLOSEOUTS>

The flat dark earth brunt orange coloration continues to bother me. It's interesting because the nylon used in the interior of the case is coyote!
The 5.11 Tactical line of single Gun Cases are designed for a single carbine or long gun. Available in 36", 42", and 50" sizes, the single Gun Case is constructed from a 1050-denier nylon and is available in Black or 5.11's Flat Dark Earth.
I picked up one of these jackets to try out something a little lesser known. The full name is Marine Corps Combat Desert Jacket, however so I don't have to type all that business out every time we'll just call it the CDJ. The main concept of this jacket is to be a full on desert jacket. Everyone knows the desert gets hot, but it can also get cold at night. Although rain isn't so common, wind and sand storms frequently come into play. A lot of effort went into finding fancy fabrics to create this soft shell that can both keep you cool or warm as needed. Some fabric use highlights include:
