Women who shoot and hunt quickly discover that the most difficult part of their wardrobe challenges is usually located between waist and ankle—the pants—and that’s why LA Police Gear’s branded Women’s Stretch Ops tactical pants are such a boon. As we all know, the unique waist-to-hip ratio each woman has can cause lesser pants to bunch, creep and expose the dreaded Plumber’s Smile as we bend, twist and stretch … so why not try some pants that bend, twist and stretch with us? Here’s what we learned when we did just that with LA Police Gear’s Stretch Ops Tactical Pants.

Pockets
Forget bells: Every time a clothing manufacturer includes a usable pocket on their women’s pants, an angel gets its wings. The Stretch Ops pants, therefore, have just enabled an entire heavenly choir with no fewer than seven pockets. There’s a slip pocket for your phone, notched front pockets for your clip knives and flashlights, two hook-and-loop cargo pockets complete with hidden pass-through … pockets.

Fit Options
Let’s talk about inseams. Up until now, that essential measurement of your leg length has bedeviled women who don’t have the most commonly produced inseam length, 30 inches. If you’re tall, expect to look like you’re heading into floodwater; if you’re like me and built like a bipedal Corgi, you’re going to be hemming pants until that flood comes. It’s so refreshing to see that LA Police Gear’s Stretch Ops Tactical Pants actually come in Short, Regular and Long lengths (28“, 30.5” and 33”, respectively). They’re available in sizes 0 through 24 as well.

As an aside, it’s a welcome surprise to see that these pants are offered in colors other than OD green and black—colors also include coyote tan, navy blue, khaki and charcoal gray.

Comfort
Whether you’re competing in an active shooting sport such as 3-Gun, on the job or just out on the town, it’s really nice to be able to crouch down without feeling the pants gap at the waist, and the LA Police Gear pants do that admirably. Wearing them allows almost the same range of motion as your yoga pants, only with (as we’ve noted earlier but must stress again) lots of pockets. Not having to worry about whether anyone behind us can see where the good Lord split us every time we bend over is priceless, but these pants retail for under $40—click here learn more, or to purchase!
