Couldn't even walk with that pack on, much less full of school supplies. But gramps was all
Decked out like he is waiting to go on a Op. I guess it's similar to all the gun videos on YouTube where they all are tacked up while shooting in their backyard. I just laugh at these guys and wonder... Do they really think they are High speed operators or what? Lol

At times I wear "cargo" pants...does that make me a tacticool tool?

No, not a tacticool tool. just a tool, since you like to throw that word around on threads it seems.

I just went in Walmart Saturday wearing 5.11 pants and belt and my issued Bates boots, but I had deer blood from my boot toes to my chin, if that helps.

I can count the number of times I've been in a Walmart on less than the fingers of one hand (and that's been while visiting out-of-state). Don't worry much about what their customers wear.

I have, however, pretty much seen my fill of folks wearing 5.11's, especially after it became the virtual uniform-of-the-day for different training venues, casual days, etc.

Once I found some more comfortable, better-fitting camping/hiking pants at a REI store (with a better array of pockets for my needs), I tried a couple pairs and retired my assortment of range BDU's. Just wish the store carried them in more than one color.

I'll continue to wear jeans in the colder weather, but in the warmer weather my collection of jeans, cargo shorts and hiking pants will let me fit right into how the rest of the folks dress in the coastal mountains where we bought a house, as well as in the coastal beach towns.

I've seen enough "tactical apparel" to last the rest of my life, but I don't mind if other folks wear it, of course.

FWIW, most of the serious hunters I know don't look like they're trying to dress "tactical" as the hunting/field clothing they wear doesn't lend itself to that "look" ... (and they certainly own enough such clothing for SWAT, street enforcement details, range duties, etc).

When it comes right down to it, though, sales keeps businesses going, right?

This is all Costa backlash! Everyone stopped asking what pants he wore and now people have to have something to fuss bout on line.

But pants with 8 pockets are so practical, you can take your whole loadout in them to Walmart. Plus, they really take a beating.

You should hear the howls when someone posts something as simple as toe shoes!

Kind of like tattoos, jacked up diesel pick up trucks, tap-out shirts, Harley Motorcycles, and Sports jerseys?

To me, they are all in the same crowd. (And not very intimidating either.)

I'm convinced that most (not all) men these days don't know how to be a man. They pretend to be a man in doing things they consider manly but fall short.

I like real men. Not boys pretending to be grown up that have yet to grow up.

I know some people that wear that stuff because their work requires that kind of dress and they just happen to have a lot of 5.11 pants. nothing wrong with that. The ones I get a kick out of are the poser operators that the OP is talking about. The kind of guy that spends more time watching nutnfancy videos and being a sheep dog. Orders tons of expensive crap that he doesn't really use as its designed.

It is very similar to the frat types that are decked out in patagonia, mountain hardwear and TNF but have never been camping and wouldnt know what a trail looks like but they have a 300 pair of Asolo hiking boots. Or back in middle school when you had kids that would dress and act like skaters but never even owned a skateboard. Some people will do anything to fit in with a certain crowd.

Your response seems a bit harsh..
I believe that was the first time I've used that word on this forum.

Everything "new" has a backlash for a while. The naysayers will quietly accept it later and move on. I see it in just about every hobby I've participated in.... whether it works or not, there will ALWAYS be haters.

My idea of every day "tactical" wear is Carhartt work pants and a t-shirt with a button up shirt or some other loose fitting shirt to cover my EDC. The pants have handy pockets on the side for your phone and extra magazine on the other and they last forever. That's about as tactical as I get. To each his own though.

Did their choice of apparel do you any harm?
Or they are coming from or going to work. A lot of people who work with their hands use a fixed-blade knife.

I regularly wear 5.11 pants because they are available in my size, comfortable, have plenty of pockets for all my crap (cell phone, wallet, pocket knife, a small notebook and pen, jframe and speed strip, keys) plus they are reasonably priced and durable.

I wear a Wilderness belt because they are reasonably priced, durable, available in my size, and look neat enough to suit me.

I wear a pair of Bates desert tan boots because they come in my size (15) are durable, comfortable, and best of all I paid $30 for them when I got em on clearance($115 original price).

Notice the "in my size" thread common to all three. I'm 6'8"/350 so anything I can find in my size that's durable, reasonably priced, comfortable, and looks neat gets bought and worn. I'm not a poser, I just like practical clothing.
