I know, I know, clothing??? Yes, clothing is an often overlooked functional piece of gear.

So you are “just fine” carrying your EDC in your Wranglers? I guarantee it will be better in a pair of jeans with some stretch and made specifically for EDC and potential “tactical” use. And this goes for everything! Jeans aren’t just jeans, flannels aren’t just flannels, jackets aren’t just jackets, and hats aren’t just hats. Clothing goes beyond duty uniforms and Crye Precision pants. What you choose to wear can equally be as important as the gun you choose to carry.

The front placket has snaps and a zipper. The cuffs and collar have a velcro closure and the back arms have gussets to give you extra range of motion.

LA POLICE GEAR TERRAIN FLEX STRAIGHT FIT JEANS

Price – $39.99

The Terrain Flex Jeans from LA Police Gear are the result of years of development, samples, blood, samples, sweat, tears, and more samples. We strove to bring a truly high-end jean that doesn’t compromise on fit, quality, features, and price. This tactical jean has all the features you’d expect – an amazing stretch fabric (that doesn’t look like it), rear hip pockets, a hidden handcuff key pocket, hidden knife clip reinforcements, and high-quality zippers, buttons, and stitching.

Straight Fit, Stretch Fabric

The Terrain Flex Straight Fit Jeans are the perfect balance between a modern and classic jean. The medium wash has just the right amount of distressing to make these jeans perfect for casual or more dressy settings. For the fabric, we added in just 2% of spandex to give it that flexibility you need without sacrificing any looks. The Terrain Flex Straight Fit Jeans in Dark Wash have an amazingly stretchy fabric that looks clean, performs well, and can be dressed up or down. We were very careful to add just the right amount of stretch so they don’t look like traditional stretchy denim. The straight fit is the perfect balance of a flattering rise and fit through the waist and thighs, with a straight leg all the way down past the knee. Our jeans have a roomy waist thanks to the stretch fabric, making them a great choice for concealed carry.
