5.11 Wyldcat Womens Pants | SHOT 2017

Useful at the range, casual office, or for day-to-day concealed carry, Wyldcat pants by 5.11 Tactical offer women more choices for comfort, convenience, and style than other so called “tactical pants”.  These pants are constructed with double thickness at the knees, lots of pockets, and a zippered gusset at the calf allowing them to fit as either skinny straight leg, or boot-cut pants.

Kneeling down doesn't bind the pants.

Outside or at the range, the large pockets in the back are roomy enough to hold extra magazines and the utility pockets at the hip easily carry a phone or your favorite knife.  The boot-cut will fit over thick socks and boots with the leg gusset unzipped.  At the office, the pants can be worn with the leg gusset zipped along with your favorite heels.  The waistband offers comfortable concealed carry on the inside or outside of the pants.

The stretchy material the pants are constructed of allows them to hold shape all day without getting that sagged or wrinkled look a lot of other pants get, and the weave is tight enough to keep dirt from embedding.

Unzipping the gusset allows for more freedom with footwear.

The best part about these pants is you can wear them to the range early in the morning for a little “stress relief” before work, brush them off, zip or unzip the gusset (as needed) with a change of shoes and be ready for the workday.

Plenty of pockets!

These pants are offered in three colors, black, khaki, and grenade, and come in women’s sizes 0-16.

Thanks to Meghan and Leah for modeling the product for us!

    I don’t like looking at pictures of women wearing pants on the internet.

    Can anyone suggest some 5.11s for men that arent terrbly baggy. I want some pants that are somewhat stylish and dont scream tactical and not baggy. Some of 5.11s just are too baggy for my taste.

      5.11 Ridgeline pants.

      Their new jeans might fit the bill.

    I haven’t seen anything from Ms. Kline, but I like the tone of her bio.

      I dunno. “Bring balance to the Force”? Anakin brought balance to the Force by bringing down the Jedi and making them as weak as the With…

      • Tinkerer

        Actually he brought balance to the Force when he grabbed the Head of State and threw him down a shaft.

        • .45

          Yes, but when he helped get rid of the Jedi they had a massive amount of power relative to the Sith, who were in hiding. After that, when their situations were reversed, he again brought balance to the Force by bringing down the Emperor.

          So, Helen here might bring balance by wiping out most of the TFB staff, replacing them with a lunatic anti gun writer, and finally end by throwing him down an elevator shaft…

          Yup, my theory makes sense. I’ll be telling you I told you so a few years from now, assuming we both survive the purge. ;D

            This thread wins the internet today.

            Puh-leez! No hokey religion can withstand the rigors of Logic. That, or a Klingon disruptor.

            Klingons are a joke. Their fight choreography seems to largely focus on demonstrating how uncoordinated their actors are as possible. If it wasn’t for the fact that they are always pitted against enemies that can’t aim and fire semi automatic weapons about as fast as a muzzleloader from the 1800s, they’d be massacred in every engagement.

            I mean this in the nicest way possible. I do prefer Star Trek to Star Wars, honest.

            “enemies that can’t aim and fire semi automatic weapons about as fast as a muzzleloader from the 1800s”
            In short, stormtroopers.

            “Live Long And Phosphorus” — fixed it for ya…

        TFB is a giant sausage fest. They need more female writers. Women are becoming a large segment of the Industry.

          So that’s how she can bring balance to TFB! Makes sense.

          The chauvinist pigs will chew her up and spit her out like they did with Katie. As soon as they saw her name on the article, it was straight to the comments to attack her and it was obvious they didn’t even read the report.

    Maybe I’ve been watching too much NCIS recently, but I’m envisioning a crime scene complication arising from someone going to the range and then work after just brushing off their fancy pants and naturally becoming a suspect when GSR is found all over them after a shooting.

  • Mrninjatoes

    Great article!

  • Thomas Gomez

    Good job Helen. Welcome to the Team.

    “These pants are offered in three colors, black, khaki, and grenade.”

    I know a girl who bought pants that were colored “grenade”. She went to a bar with her girls and ended up talking to the wingman all night.

    So I guess it worked – they made her invisible.

    So, is there any stretch in these or are they only for people with flat butts?
