The main problem was, all the "other" tactical jeans were "straight" or "classic" fit. So when I tried those on I looked like I raided my wifes skinny jeans from her closet. Not only is slim fit unprofessional looking, it really restricts movement and you can't fit anything in your pockets, unless you want to put your smartphone in your back pocket the way your teenage daughter does. For whatever reason, the makers of these tactical jeans just were not understanding that the average wearer of these is probably going to have larger thighs, hamstrings, and calves, disproportionate to their smaller waist size.
So that brings me to the first part of the review where I will actually talk about these jeans. Vertx had the good sense to make these relaxed fit, not straight fit or classic fit or your wife's jeggings fit. Now I will say they could still be just a tad bit looser in the upper leg, as I went up a size from my normal relaxed fit jeans and although I am swimming in the waist of the jeans, they fit properly around my upper legs without being overly tight or baggy. I can put something in my front pockets and its not printing through my pants like I'm wearing spandex. The leg opening is a good width, again I prefer a little bit wider leg opening at the cuff, but these still do not look like the "other" jeans out there where the leg is the same width all the way to the cuff and just looks silly. So although I would prefer these to be just a little more relaxed than they are, no other jeans out there can compare. So I recommend going one size up. (For reference, I'm 6' tall 220lbs.)
I am a fan of the material, these jeans appear durable but have some slight stretch to them, all without feeling too soft and flimsy or like traditional denim that is heavy and takes a day and half to dry when wet. I've only worn them a couple times so far out and about, so I can't speak to how much punishment they'll actually take. However they seem well made.
The colors are a bit of an interesting choice. You can choose from dark wash or dark stonewash. I got one of each and honestly they look pretty similar to me. If anyone from Vertx ever reads this, PLEASE make a light (read: very light) wash version of these! This is a trend I noticed with all the other tactical jeans out there: for some reason dark wash is the only color available. Even in regular jeans I have no idea why light wash is so hard to find.
The price is maybe a little high for these, but they are worth it and I would buy them again (especially if Vertx tweaked them the way I mentioned).
-These are the closest to a true "relaxed fit" you are going to find in a tactical jean--I went a size up and I'm glad I did (wish they were just a little looser in the leg!). If you tend to skip leg day, you could probably go with your regular waist size.
-The leg opening is wide enough that you can wear it with high top boots and not look like a dweeb (again, not asking for bootcut width but a little wider on the leg opening would be perfect!)
-Pockets are placed well and offer good functionality, while maintaining a low visual profile
-Limited color selection is limited (make a light wash version!)
-Price is on the high side of fair, so I'll slowly replace my old jeans with these over time
