5.11 have always made great quality and functional pants. I wear them for work, travel and everyday wear. The Apex are a bit more subtle than the Stryke. I really like the Ridgeline series but they didn't have cargo pockets so the Apex solves this. My only reservation with the Apex pants is the durability of the zip of the cargo pockets. They are plastic teeth zips. I don't think they'll last constant opening and closing for gd work. I just leave them open. I liked the Apex I bought khaki for everyday wear. Also on Tacsource, I'm glad I came across the site. Shipping was fast to Melbourne. No more nightgear.
great love the pants
