New Fabric for TAD Gear Force 10 Pants
Last month Triple Aught Design added a new version of the popular Force 10 Pant to its lineup.
The revised pants feature an updated design and a 6.5-ounce fabric of 50 percent nylon and 50 percent cotton — the same fabric used for ACUs. Previously the pants were only available in 7.5-ounce, 100 percent cotton. The upgrade is said to improve the pants overall durability and tear-resistance. It is also supposed to maintain the level of breathability achieved by using cotton. Now the pants are an entire ounce lighter than the previous version.
For those unfamiliar with TAD Gear, the company started with just one man in 1997. That man, Patrick Ma, began his foray into apparel with the Force 10 pants. More than a decade later, those pants remain one of the marquee products the boutique tactical gear company produces.
Made in the USA — like all of TAD Gear’s apparel and equipment — the latest iteration now also includes triple and double needle stitching in certain reinforced areas. These areas cover the seat, crotch and inseams. Additionally three pockets have been added to the pants — a coin pocket and two hidden passport pockets.
