    Seems interesting, but for 90 dollars I won't be trying them any time soon.

    I agree. They look nice, but way overpriced.

    They do look nice. I looked on YouTube. There are a few company videos. I would like to see a couple of independent reviews on YouTube before I purchase them.

    This is one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" things. Pretty neat, but a little too pricey for me to experiment with.

    If they had a pair of Khaki shorts for around $40, then I would take a gamble.

    Good idea. Too expensive for me to want, though

    well.. i carry every day. How may pairs am i going to need @$90 a pop? Plus, those are OK for a dressy occasion, but what if i am shoveling **** or throwing hay, or doing some carpentry? i'd have to go back to the carharts and IWB. I'd like to keep my carry consistent day to day.
    HOWEVER, if i once again lived in a more urban environment, they might be OK. carry he g-20 to the corperate office...

    OK, so I spent a little more time on Google tonight. I searched for reviews on CCW Breakaways. I'm looking for either a review by a published source (something like Guns & Ammo Magazine) or just a blogger or YouTuber. I am having a hard time finding any hands on reviews.

    I found them mentioned on several forums similar to GlockTalk. The earliest mention I found was back in January 2010 on this forum. Even back then, the blue jeans were still "coming soon".

    So, these pants have been on the market for a year and a half. As far as I can tell, no one has reviewed or possibly even bought a pair. I think it's a great idea. Maybe not as fast as a normal holster. But these seem to be made more for concealment than speed.

    I'd probably keep a sandwich in there, with a cold coke so the sandwich doesn't get warm.

    I dunno looks like where the gun sits wouldn't be comfortable for my "big boned" frame. I know pocket carry never is fun when sitting.

    While that's not really my cup of tea. I don't think they are over priced like a lot of the other people. I mean you're getting pants and a holster for $90. You guys never spent $90 on a pair of dress pants before?

    It says "A Faster Withdrawal". What does stuffing a gun in your pants have to do with ATM's?

    Nice concept, but too expensive, plus, I don't care for pleated front pants.

    overpriced? 90.00 for a pair of slacks? not dress pants made of wool, or even tailored to me and my body type/size... why would anyone say they were overpriced?

    Just kidding - for a pair of slacks I personally would not spend 90.00/pair. for the record I have paid upwards of 600.00+/- for a tailored suite so its not always a money issue - but they were tailored and needed for work.

    Price is ok by me. What's missing is detail on exactly how the gun fits in the built in holster. Would need to see the exact details of how the gun is holstered to make sure it's secure, no hangups on draw. Very incomplete web site info to justify the expense...And as has been said, no user reviews...

    Hey, if you stand with one leg back all the time, like the guy in the pictures, it won't even be obvious you are carrying a gun in your pocket. The Downside is you have to either buy a lot of $90 pants or wear the same ones every day.

    In short - looks like a silly idea. Unless they offer a package deal with a CCW badge and sash.

    I'm pretty sure if you've got 90 bucks to blow on a pair of khakis, you've got money to pay other people to shovel **** for you.

    I finally found some reviews. There were links right on the manufacturer's web site. [​IMG]


    A few links got to magazine articles that just show a picture of the pants and one or two lines as a caption. Not very helpful. But this link seems to be a genuine review.

    It's another one of those products that most people would fall for, and maybe use once.
