The pricing on genuine Crye brand tactical pants is insane. I won’t let you forget their astronomical price as this Nutnfancy rant/review gains momentum. No doubt the “Crye Combat Pant” possesses phenomenal quality and good design; I show you this in detail. It’s made in the USA. Who buys a pair of $315 dollar pants? Few, that’s who. Other more pressing money matters prevent such a foolish expenditure of money for most folks.
If guys are wearing these chances are they got them for free, either through unit issue or as a freebie for a positive review. Me? I went out and spent some of that Patreon money to find out what the deal is on these Gen 3 Crye pants (and $45 built in kneepads!) for myself. I’ll cover the details.
But then check out my homage alternative to these pants, see Amazon link below. They are about 85% as good and I’ve been running them for years with good success. They too have built in kneepads, come in outstanding tactical colors (hey EMTs, get the pure black versions), feature good quality (even improved from the ones I show you here), and they’re affordable. They’ll go by different names, see below. I address the “airsoft” criticism too! In the end the Crye pants, though good, just ain’t worth the cost of a freakin’ gun. But what do I know, I’m just an Air Force guy…heh heh.
