Product Description

Law enforcement, military and fire professionals worldwide consistently choose the 5.11 Tactical Cotton Shorts for both on and off-duty warm weather wear. The 5.11 Tactical Cotton Shorts come in 7 colors, with size ranges to fit virtually everyone. Known for its trademark rear slash pockets and utility strap, the sturdy, seven-pocket 5.11 Tactical Cotton Shorts are so comfortable and functional, they have become an industry standard. Made of tough, 8.5-oz. 100% cotton canvas that becomes increasingly more comfortable over time, these 5.11 shorts stand up to the rigors of daily work, play and travel. Known for superior comfort, functionality and fit, the shorts feature a self-adjusting comfort waistband that helps you bend and stretch with ease. Double and triple-needle construction is utilized throughout, plus 48 bartacks in high-stress areas. For added durability we use a proprietary weave that binds in on itself to prevent raveling. The magazine/cell phone pocket and corners of the slash pockets are lined with Cordura® nylon and the double reinforced seat provides enhanced abrasion protection. 5.11 use only genuine, locking-flange YKK® zippers and quality PRYM® snaps, both of which are top-of-the-line in the industry. Additional quality hardware is found in the front, where a convenient D-ring holds your keys, or ID. For best results, pair the 5.11 Tactical Cotton Shorts with the 5.11 Tactical Shirt or 5.11 Tactical Polo.


The front pockets are strong and roomy and the inverted pleats on the cargo pockets remain flat until needed for a neat, professional appearance. A narrow thigh pocket accommodates a magazine, cell phone or utility knife. The extra deep rear slash pockets are easily accessed and can hold extended mags, a baton or a 15” flashlight. You may also use the utility strap to secure a flashlight or store your ear protection at the range.


The legendary fit of the 5.11 Tactical Cotton Shorts is a closely guarded secret based on a tried-and-true formula created 30 years ago from its mountaineering roots. Designed for active movement in changing conditions, the shorts perform and look great on individuals of all shapes and sizes. This same superior fit is also found in the 5.11 Tactical Pant, 5.11 Covert Khaki and the 5.11 Tactical Shirt.


The authentic 5.11 Tactical Cotton Shorts are the only shorts on the market with a 30-year history of delivering quality, functionality, comfort and value. It has consistently stood the test of time worldwide. Accept no imitations or look-alikes; the authentic 5.11 Tactical Cotton Shorts are the genuine article.
