SHOT16: Propper Ends the Blown Crotch?

A few of us who write for RECOIL (and we imagine more than a few of you) have heard the dreaded sound of ripping fabric — it's bad when you're walking over to creep on that hot new barista…much worse when somebody in a man dress is shooting at you. You know how it happens. You go to take a knee, adjust a tiny bit out of the movement range of your pants and boom the crotch blows. Propper thinks they have a method to remedy this with their new pants made of a Stretch Micro Ripstop.  They fired out this press release to tell you all about their new pants. We're hoping Propper has put an end to the blown crotch.


The go-to style for any environment, Propper’s Tactical Pant is a bestseller for a reason. Now offered in three functional fabrics and more colors than ever before. Choose from Lightweight Ripstop, Canvas, or the all new Stretch Micro Ripstop.

Perform with efficiency in the most demanding situations. The Propper Tactical Pant features rugged fabric that’s coated in DWR (durable water repellent) finish to repel stains and liquids. You can carry your gear in comfort with nine pockets, an action-stretch waistband, and extra-large belt loops. The seat and knees are reinforced for extra durability, while allowing for the addition of knee pads.

The Canvas fabric is heavy duty and hard wearing. The Lightweight Ripstop is bestselling – a perfect balance of weight and durability. Finally, all new Stretch Micro Ripstop offers better range of motion and comfort.

The Lightweight Tactical pant is now available in Flag (slate blue color), Ranger Green, Earth (dark khaki/brown color) and Stone (lighter khaki).

Features include:

-Fade-, shrink- and wrinkle-resistant
-DWR (durable water repellent) finish repels stains and liquids
-Includes D-ring for keys or tools
-Extra-large belt loops designed for nylon duty belt
-Action-stretch waistband for enhanced comfort
-Reinforced seat and knee
-Zipper fly with sturdy snap closure
-Nine-pocket design
-Two cargo pockets with hook and loop closure
-Two hook and loop back pockets with wallet “pocket in a pocket”
-Two front pockets with nylon reinforcement
-Internal openings for knee pads
-Phone pocket with hook and loop closure
-Two hidden coin pockets
-Relaxed fit

All of these pants will be on display at SHOT Show 2016 in the Propper booth #10764 in the main hall. Armor products (yes, Propper is now doing armor!) can also be found in the Propper Armor booth #8103 in the Law Enforcement area.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
