Default Civilian ACUs?

Does anyone know of any type of pants out there that are identical (or as close as possible) as ACU bottoms? I know they aren't perfect pants but they weren't bad and for hiking and backpacking I'd love to wear a pair but I'm not wearing ACUs lol. I want them in solid colors. Thanks.

Check out some of these pants from Tru-Spec.

http://www.uscav.com/productinfo.asp...-_-548-_-17736

Also, check out 5.11's line of pants. I own a pair and they are great. They make a lot of clothes for LEOs and security.

Tru-Spec makes a Tactical Response Uniform that's cut very similar to the ACUs... they're popular with a lot of SWAT/SRT units in my area.

I was in civilians for the last year I was in the Army and I put these two brands through some pretty tough situations.

5.11 tactical the 100% cotton are nice and thick, the rip stop Polyester blend are pretty nice.
LA Police gear has its own brand and they feel like traditional ACU's just in solid colors, but they can rip like tradition ACU's

2nd VOTE for LA police gears operator pants they are very very similar too actual ACU's. I was having cargo pocket separation anxiety until I picked up a couple of sets. www.lapolicegear.com also has the 5.11's so you can check them both out. I will say having owned both the 5.11 and the LA police gear operator pants you cannot go wrong with the 19.99 La Police gear operator pants.

LA Police Gear has great prices on their pants as well as good discounts on the 5-11 gear.

true story man. just happened to me this past Saturday. no females in the training area thankfully. not much to see anyway in my case.
i did however once see a company commander fasten a kneepad over his crotch tear during an ftx because of the "bubble gum" dilemma.

Screw the ACU trousers go hiking with the NWU pants!

Triple Aught Design makes nice and tough pants. I have one of their ME green Legionnaires and it's the closest color to the ACU shade.

I somehow got unsubscribed from this thread and forgot all about it lol. A buddy and I are gonna do a short two night three day camping trip in the mountains (and have butt secks) and I need some pants and remembered this thread and thought it died.

Gonna order these pants: http://www.lapolicegear.com/elastic-...ator-pant.html

Are there any promotional offers or deals at LAPG? Also any other good items LAPG has I should pick up? Never shopped there before.

They just arrived and I'll definitely be order some more. Great fit and feel to them. I'll be putting them to test next weekend. Speedy shipping from LAPG was awesome as well.
