Today a tactical medic is a key position on many police tactical teams.

Get a FREE 5.11 glove pouch with the purchase of this pant – for a limited time only.
Constructed of advanced 6 ounce, 65 percent polyester/35 percent cotton ripstop fabric, these pants stay cool and comfortable even under the hottest conditions; the light-but-tough fabric is highly breathable and fast-drying. DuPont HP Teflon fabric protector adds a durable finish and repels stains, soil, and fluid. Toss these pants in the washing machine with cold water for the easiest possible care.
The Taclite EMS Pant also has a gusseted crotch for enhanced movement and plenty of purposefully designed, EMS-specific pockets and gear holders. Two smaller cargo pockets are conveniently positioned on the lower legs for faster access to critical gear when kneeling over a patient. An extra fabric layer on the knees adds durability and creates interior pockets for low-profile neoprene kneepads—provided FREE from 5.11 using a mail-in coupon.
The pant’s action waist—a self-adjusting tunnel waistband—moves with you, keeping you comfortable to maneuver in a tactical operation or around a patient. Double-Time belt loops have an extra-wide 1 1/2-inch belt loop that can support a riggers/rescue belt or a 2 1/4-inch duty belt to comfortably carry the weight of a radio, flashlight, EMS holster sets, tools, and other critical gear. A thinner 3/8-inch loop is centered over each main loop to provide convenient additional attachment points for a radio strap, lanyards, carabiners, and other accessories.
EMScargo pockets on both thighs provide specialized storage and easy access to critical gear. The pants’ extra-deep front pockets have been redesigned with additional support and reinforcement at the bottom edges to protect the material from wear. Patented rear slash pockets and a rear web strap are standard. A new welted wallet pocket on the left side adds to the storage options.
Heavy-duty durability comes from several elements including genuine YKK zippers, Prym snaps, and tough cuff hems. Double- and triple-needle stitching and bartacks add strength in high-stress areas. The 5.11 Taclite EMS Pant is available in dark navy only. Men’s sizes fit 28-inch to 44-inch waist and 30-inch to 36-inch inseams while women’s sizes fit 2 to 16 in regular or long lengths.
