Tru-spec 24-7 Xpedition Pants?

These look exactly like what I've been wanting for everything outdoors, from snowblowing to wilderness med. I can't find any reputable reviews. Anyone here seen/tried them?

Look at the reviews on Amazon:  https://www.amazon.com/TRU-SPE...th=1#customerReviews

I try to only look at the "Verified Purchase" reviews.  From the verified purchase reviews, they actually look like people are pretty happy with them (except maybe price).

I don't make policy, only suggestions, take them as such.

I had a pair for two days. While they fit in the waist, the thighs were entirely too tight. The waist closure button, along with the snaps on the front thigh pockets, and the zippers felt cheap for 90 dollar pants. The bottom boot zipper basically  just turns the pants into bell bottoms.

Not what I was hoping to hear, but glad to know.  The search goes on.

Local cop shop gave me a pair to try. They fit me very well and I found them to be pretty comfortable. I wore them every day during a five day LE  basic sniper course, and they held up well. It was pretty warm during the class and the side zip vents were very nice for cooling. I did not care for the pseudo Crye front thigh pockets, as anything I put in them really stuck out.  I will pick up another pair for hot weather range days. Unfortunately, pants/boots/shoes are often mostly subjective. I have to try for myself. I've found many well reviewed items in these categories that did not suit me at all.

I've got several pairs, and my review is similar to CWM11B.  They make use of a lot of stretchy material, most of which contributes to comfort, particularly with activity.  They are a good, lightweight hiking or active shooting pant.

The cargo pockets use the stretch material, which is a definite downside of the pant, as the contents are clearly outlined, and IMHO look stupid.  I got mine on sale for $43, and they are worth at least that, but not $90.
