KBS Tactical Combat Trousers from Leo Koehler are designed and developed with special forces input. This updated design takes the most successful elements of the last ten years of trouser design from Leo Koehler and packs them into one trouser to enhance durability and field use. The leg cargo pockets are large, bulgy pockets with large lid with hidden buttons. The top of the pocket can be cinched together with the integral shock cord and toggle, and the pocket can be bound to the leg with the integrated, adjustable thigh strap which is useful to keep the pocket contents from dragging during airborne and fast roping use. The hip pockets are slash pockets and are secured with a button and the seat pocket is closed with a flap with hidden button. The hidden buttons help to reduce the possiblity of snagging on parachute lines. Additionally, each lower leg has a pleated pocket which is closed with zipper so that contents can be secured in a location that is easy to reach when prone. The bottom of all exposed pockets is strengthened with Cordura nylon. The trousers also have two large areas of venting, located inside the thighs and on the lower calf. The thigh area can be opened with zip to reveal a mesh layer and the lower calf can also be opened partly with zipper and folded up to expose the mesh layer. The mesh is fitted with ankle shock cord to allow the bottom of the trousers to be tightened around the top of the boot. Reinforcement layers are made from Cordura nylon and consist mainly of the shaped knees which can be opened with a zipper for insertion of padding (not included) and the inside of the ankle. The camouflage outer layer can also be tightened around the ankle with its own elastic shock cord. The back of the waist is fitted with elastic and the belt loops are suitable for a 40mm or 50mm wide trouser belt, and fabric loops are available on the waist for attachment of lanyard. The trouser are constructed to military specification, with no compromise on materials or design. Sizes are Medium (90cm waist/35 inches), Large (100cm waist/39 inches), XL (105/41 inches).
Available options are: M , L , XL .
