    Slimmest Hard Use BDU Type Pants?

    Looking for Slimmest Hard Use BDU Type Pants?

    I have just tried Propper and they don't taper quite enough such that the pants leg opening will sometimes catch the tip of my shoe if I crouch just "wrong"
    The butt and thighs are gtg for fit though.

    Anyone want to weigh in on other bdu type pants that are a bit slimmer in a light to medium weight?

    If that’s the only problem why not have the local tailor do some work on the cuff?
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Donít they have strings to blouse the bottom of them?

    Or if you want to go super operator, several pants like the Crye G3s taper.

    To address the questions -

    I want to find pants that don't have to be tailored
    These proppers don't have blousing strings/ties

    Anyone have a measurement on Crye leg openings?

    However, also looking for sub $50/pair price point

    Buy some surplus ACU pants on eBay.

    Were the Propper's the district pant? If not, those seem a little slimmer in the leg.

    I'm in the same boat as the OP.

    Most cargo/BDU pants are way too baggy in the legs.

    I prefer baggy pants for ease of mobility, but the 5.11 TDU pants seem to be very slim, too slim for me to wear.
