Our friends over at Practical Tactical Systems Blog (PracTacSys) have put up their “Used & Abused” evaluation of these fantastic pants from UF PRO.
I’ve been wearing a pair for a while myself too, and I have found them to be incredibly comfortable – and the dynamic, ergonomic design to be exceptionally practical; everything is right where you need it to be and the pants just feel like a natural extension of your body.
These pants also stand out through their combination of incredible attention to detail and innovative features. Some people have referred to UF PRO’s designs as the European answer to Crye Precision, well, I think its more like “Pack your bags Crye, there’s a new Sherriff in town, and his name is UF PRO!”
UF PRO’s innovative, dynamic, 3-in-1 knee protection system. Once you’ve used these, you’ll never wear other knee pads again!
Even when strapped into the rear seat of a Blackhawk helicopter, the contents of the cargo pocket are still accessible. The only weakness in the cargo pocket design, in my opinion, is that it needs to be a bit bigger. Its a very tight fit to carry a field notebook (unless you use a rather small one), and once you put something in the slim outer pocket and the two internal pockets, there’s not much room left for stuff in the main cargo pocket. Sorry for the blurry photo – there’s a fair amount of vibration inside a Blackhawk whilst in flight..
