There is a lot of excitement around the new clothing lines that Propper is bringing to market in February largely because the lines display some functionality that is pretty unique and sounds very functional. One such unique feature is the gun pocket on the STL I Pant from the LS1 line. The pocket is located at the center back of the pants and it allows for a compact handgun to be stowed.
I don’t have much information on the gun pocket yet but it is an interesting feature. Obviously, it is a less than optimal carry location but the placement allows it to be ambidextrous which is important given that Propper doesn’t know the preferred hand of everyone who wants a pair of pants. It appears that it might be difficult to use if you are wearing a belt but it is hard to say until someone actually has a chance to try the pants.
The gun pocket is what immediately jumps out at me about the STL I Pant but there is a lot going on with these pants. They appear to have a cleaner profile than most “tactical” pants. They do have a multitude of a pockets but they are cut in a lower profile way that doesn’t jump out as much. They are made from Nylon/Spandex fabric incorporating a water resistant DWR finish and they are gusseted to enhance the ease of movement.
