Tactical Operator BDU Pants from Rothco

A lot of us want to wear something other than just standard camo BDUs when we are airsofting, and Airsplat has brought us an inexpensive option from Rothco.  These are the Rothco Tactical Operator BDU Pants and you can get them by clicking HERE.  Take a look at them below.

Here are the specs:
- 55% cotton, 45% polyester
- Adjustable waist tabs
- Button fly
- Two front slash pockets
- Two button-down back pockets
- Two thigh pockets
- Reinforced knees and seat
- Double-stitched seans
- Drawstrings on the ankles
- 1 7/8 inch belt loops
- Cost at Airsplat: $25.49
- Colors available: Tan and Black

As you can see, I took a bunch of pics so you can have a sense of what these pants have to offer.  If you like the shirt I'm wearing, a review of them is coming soon, but you can check out Cast Gear HERE.

But back to the pants.  They come in a variety of sizes, and as you can see they have a button front, button fly, and adjustable waist tabs, so as long as you get them in a size close to yours, you can adjust them to loosen up or tighten up a bit.

A big deal for me is the knee area of pants. If I have to crawl around on a the ground, I want something that's durable.  Well, these guys have reinforced knees, so - check.

The large cargo (thigh) pockets offer you plenty of space to store items,  They are button-down pockets, so if you need quick access to something, I'd recommend you leave them un-buttoned, but just be aware that whatever you have in there is more likely to fall out if you don't have them secured shut.  Your call.  But bottom line, you've got lots of storage space in your cargo pockets.

Here's a look at the side.  Standard side pockets (no buttons - which I prefer).


Sorry.  Anyhow, back pockets are button-down as well and you can see, just with the 6 pockets, you've got storage space for dead rags, a granola bar - whatever you can fit in them.


As you can see here, there are ties on the ankles if you so desire.

These pants were notably comfortable to wear.  They don't repel water like something that has less cotton, but you sacrifice that for overall comfort I think.  I wore these to work one day and didn't feel like I was in some sort of BDU.  Overall, for less than $30, I think these are a good deal at Airsplat.  Could you get a more rugged pair of tactical pants out there?  Certainly (5.11 is a good option), and you'll pay twice as much for them (the 5.11 tactical pants run over $50).  For a basic, comfortable pair of non-100% cotton tactical pants, these are worth checking out.  Head over to Airsplat (click HERE) to check them out.
