Durable and functional Helikon Urban Tactical Pants are a 'mid profile' trousers (thus look less like a uniform when compared to such pants as BDU, ACU or M-65), perfect for carrying weapon and various equipment in a discrete manner, with design that was mostly inspired by patterns from such companies as Vertx, Crye Precision and 5.11.
These quality pants fit well in the waist thanks to a flat elastic tape sewn in the rear part of the belt list, are zipped with a durable metal YKK zipper and fastened with big hook-and-loop fastener with a certain regulation possibility.
The trousers feature a number of useful pockets placed at the front, the rear and on both thighs. Two front hands pockets go with extra strong edges that are intended for clips of foldable knives. There are also two internal symmetrical pockets, sewn in diagonally to the belt list and made of material lighter than this of pants themselves. These two pockets are intended for carrying such objects as telescopic batons or an extra pistol magazine, in a discrete, comfortable and secure way. Two large rear pockets with hook-and-loop fasteners go with two auxiliary small pockets placed inside. These small pockets are the equivalent of two interior pockets at the front of the pants. It is worth adding their depth may be adapted by sewing them at a certain height or by unstitching pleats. These are perfect for carrying a small flashlight or a multitool. What is more trousers feature big, diagonal, symmetrical thigh pockets, divided in two. The smaller ones go with a hook-and-loop fastener and are perfect for carrying mobile phones, magazines for AR carbine or pistol magazines. Larger feature YKK zipper and single fold that is increasing their capacity.
Moreover UTP trousers also feature profiled front and rear part of leg around knees. The front knee part is additionally strengthened by two layers of material. In turn these two layers create an internal pocket which is perfect for padding. All these characteristics ensure freedom of movement and limit raising trouser legs while crouching or kneeling.
To ensure that you get the right size, we recommend that you measure your waist and compare your measurements with our size guide ('Exact Waist' column).
Instruction: Wrap the measuring tape around your waist, wherever you want the pants to button. Allow the measuring tape a little give in this area for movement.
Alternatively please take the size that you can find on the label of your jeans and compare it to the 'Tag Size' column.
W 30", L 32" - 'W' stands for 'Waist'; 'L' stands for 'Leg' and the numbers are measurements in 'inches'.

How to return your order:
Wanted something with more pockets than my Craghoppers for going up Munros and already own the Helikon UTP Denim so opted for the polycotton variant in Adaptive Green for this. I could not be happier. They are absolutely ideal for what I use them for: sturdy; plenty of pockets; comfy; freedom of movement; quite quick drying; even the smartphone pocket on front fits a map compass perfectly. For the fit of them the legs are quite long which doesnt bother me as I blouse my boots when out and about, it does however mean if you are wearing them as regular trousers the knees can end up sticking out oddly due to the cut of them. Not a massive niggle I would say. Neither is the velcro waist fastener's noise when opening which is the only other negative thing I can say about these. The Adaptive Green colour I got these is also seems to go with everything so, yes, very adaptive!
