How to Get Into The Best Pants

Nope, this isn't about diets or even interpersonal relations. It's about Tactical Pants--pants that began as the perfect trousers in which to tackle a mountain. Then they became the perfect trouser for tackling a bad guy. And the perfect pant or shorts for a man or woman who wants to climb a tree or even  carry around an i-phone or portable book reader, or even an extra hard drive on their way to their favorite coffee house.  They may look like a cargo pant, and therefore stylish, but they add Greater Function and Quality.

Other things you can do in Tactical Pants:
Sail around the world
Force your children to clean their rooms
Carry a three-course lunch with no hands
Go spelunking
Kick ass in Afghanistan (Military I.D. required)
Handle a bride when the cake is late
Design a computer language
Fight the Zombies in the Basement
Rush to class in the rain
Ride the bucking bull at Gilley's

Change a flat tire
Win the America's Cup
Sit on the porch and drink tea (after building the deck)
Drive a Mule Team through Death Valley
Endure through every page of Joyce's Ulysses

Jeanette K. writes the Tactical Pants blog, which I found through Slamdunk first, then a ning group after that. And what a site--informative and funny.  For instance, check out the many fashion-challenged T.V. detectives, all of whom (except perhaps Peter Falk) would have been much cuter in Tactical Pants.

For those of you who attempt the impossible every day, or just want something well made, convenient, and well thought out, Jeanette has done a huge service: she's written a Consumer Guide to every good set of Tactical Pants and Shorts in the Universe.

Check the Tactical Pants blog out for laughs, or to see what a civic-minded company is up to. Do great things. Let me know what they are!! Or tell Jeanette K.!

I WILL have to check this blog out, as I am a staunch devotee of the "TAC-SLACKS" brigade!
(camo for now, woodland OR desert, and very practical for every task at hand)

Long may they (come out of the dryer without incident) wave!

Have a great weekend!

Ann T:
Happy Medic posted about these folks awhile back--I look in every so often. I like pants with lots of pockets. They should make tactical nursing unis!

Thanks for the reminder!

Dear Bob,
One think I really like about them--they DO have the consumer guide for us to pick the right thing.

The second thing I really like--Jeanette has worked hard to interact and give to the community of professionals that use Tactical Pants. She's done a darn fine job.

Dear The Observer,
Yeah, some whites, huh? In a ripstop and body-fluid repelling fabric.

Next stop for all those companies!

Thanks for writing in!
