Female law enforcement officers used to have to wear men's uniform trousers. Their trousers were uncomfortable and hurt performance. Existing industry designs didn't recognize the natural contour of a woman's waist. This caused the trouser's waistband (and therefore the officer's duty belt) to sit uncomfortably high, above the natural waist, increasing back stress and making weapon access awkward. To solve these problems, the Elbeco Inc. team worked with female officers across the country to create an innovative design matching a woman's shape. The Elbeco Ladies Choice Trousers have a contoured waistband and high hip patterns that follow a woman's hip-to-waist ratio. The rise was shortened to improve appearance and prototype testing continued until all test groups agreed on final specifications. Elbeco's new Ladies Choice trouser design product line is the result. Our customers describe the new trouser as a comfortable woman's pant, allowing a female's duty belt to rest on the natural waist. This provides reduced back stress and a more natural weapon access. Since the Ladies Choice Trouser fits women correctly, it provides a more flattering, slimming profile with a crisp professional appearance.
