The Belgium Army Combat Pants are an olive drab pair of high quality military pants. European made, you'll find these combat pants have the best materials and care was taken to make sure they perform well on the battlefield.
I got the 6A size and the fit is spot on for my 5'7" / 34 waist. I was concerned about the inseam of 26-28 inches but with a pair of high top boots the length is aok.
These aren't dissimilar to the Spanish BDU'S on the market lately. These are made to a higher standard, though, and have nicer pocket placement. A good cut.
Very happy with this purchase. I picked up a 5D (inseam 28"-30" / Waist 33"-37") since I usually take a 30/32, and I like the feel and fit. The color I received is a little darker green than in the pictures. I chose them for a costume, but given the quality, I'm sure I'll find better uses for these pants.
My new hunting/hiking pants. Very durable and thick. Nice suspender buttons for "y" type suspenders built in. Accepts wide belts.
These are high quality and heavy duty pants. I purchased these after reading the other reviews here on Keepshooting, I'm glad did.
I would not consider these as summer weight pants. They are heavyweight and will serve good as fall and winter outside work pants. Pants have buttons on the inside of the waist for use with European style button suspenders. My set arrived in brand new condition with zero signs of stains or storage wear. Ordering another pair before they are gone for good.
These pants are very heavy duty, a great deal for the price. However, be forewarned that the 5D size is basically a 34 waist. Luckily for me, I've lost a lot of weight and now I can barely fit into a 34 waist so these worked out fine. But for those who read the description and believe they go up to 37", better think again. No way. But as for the quality, these are top notch pants. No regrets whatsoever!
Tough trouser better than current US od green BDUs being made offshore. All features are as advertised at a killer price. Belt loops big to fit a pistol belt & double ply in stress areas well thought out for euro combat trousers. Pay attention to metric sizing (2.5 cm eq 1 inch) & you can't go wrong
These are maybe my favorite pants I've found. Maybe tougher than M65 field pants, tougher than NYCO 50/50 BDU winter weight. Fabric is so dense and thick it blocks wind pretty well in 50degF weather on motorcycle. I'm 6'4" and following size fits me with room to spare (very baggy, I need belt, have about 34" waist): Size 5I 8090/8595 (inseam 31"-35" / Waist 33"-37"). Has two strips of velcro on each pant leg cuff so you can close them tight or maybe even remove the pants with your footwear still on. These make good winter pants or work pants and would be very hot in summer weather. New old stock condition, I think mine were made in the 1970s. At least while new, fabric is water repellent. Double fabric layers on knees and seat.
I really like these pants. First, they are available in a short inseam, so they fit! Second, they are very well made, launder well, and are rugged enough to turn the briars and brambles away. Coupled with lightweight long johns, they were my regular outdoor pants this winter and were still comfortable in the house. I think they are going to be a bit too warm for late spring and summer though. The tight ankles don't allow much ventilation for the legs. That is great for cold weather but not summer.
The fabric is water repellent which is a bonus.
Heavy duty construction, excellent value for the price. Slightly too large for me but with the adjustable tabs on both side, fits very well. Pants legs are just the right length for me too. Very happy with the purchase.
I recently purchased three pair of these Belgium O.D. combat pants in size 5F. I normally wear a 34" waist and 33" inseam. The 5F size is a perfect fit.
The quality of the material and workmanship of these pants is absolutely outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone.
I'm a 36" waist and not very proud of that. But the size range posted for 5D looked perfect to me. Surely length-wise, 5D is THE size for me. But I find it hard to believe the 33-37" claim. That said, the quality and the value are so good, I am going to add these pants in my list of good reasons to lose weight!
I really like these pants, mine were dated 1979, but were in perfect shape. Nice and roomy and seem to have water repelling/wind blocking properties. My current favorite pair of milsurp pants.
I bought these in the same size I wear in jeans. They're very, very durable pieces of clothing, and I've been using them around the garage for a while now. Where I was a little disappointed, however, was by how much they pull up on your leg when you sit down. I was hoping to use a pair of these as riding pants for fall weather, but they pull up several inches to where my riding boots don't even cover any more. I'm not sure if it's something about the material at the bottom or what, but in every other case, they feel sized identically to my jeans. In any case, good garage pants for a good price.
So well made, durable and comfortable. I had to buy another pair for my son. Great attention to detail, high quality and super reasonable price. These really are my favorite pants.
I'm a 33-34" waist and 30" inseam; size 5d fits me perfect! I ordered 2 pairs and they are dated 1965 and 1975 but aside from the musty surplus smell they are in brand new condition. You'd never know by the look or feel that they are that old. These are very thick, durable pants that will take a lot of abuse. Plenty of room in the groin/thigh area for running, jumping, crouching and crawling without hindering leg movement. Adjustable Velcro boot closures on each leg are useful and convenient. Solid button closure on pockets. Pants as hard core as these would easily fetch $80-100 in a retail store. At $20 they are an incredible value! Buy two!
If they get any more in my size, I'll be buying them all. I can't say enough about quality pants for working in, and these fit that category perfectly. Very well made and suitable for land surveying, hunting and pretty much whatever you can wear them through. Just hit "add to cart", pick your size, checkout and you'll be satisfied. These folks ship the stuff out quick. Happy customer here!
I purchased two pair of these pants arrived quickly and was in like new condition the fit was correct these pants are very well constructed and should last a long time very good product.
Shortly after beginning work in the field while sporting these pants,
I knew I had found a gem. They are sure to become one of my favorites...
heck, they are already. Just like a good tool makes all the difference for the task at hand, so too does the rugged and reliable feel of these trousers.
These are a very well made, high quality, and durable pair of pants. I found the 5D to be a proper fit; I have about a 33-34 waist and a 30 inseam. After warm wash and regular dry, there was minimal shrinkage, and still room in the waist to move both adjusters to the minimum waist size adjustment for a good fit with only a "T", yet room for cooler weather shirts and layers to be tucked in when adjusters were set in the maximum position. These pants also have 3 sets of buttons on the inside of the waist to accept suspenders as well, a nice useful touch. Medium weight fabric, OK for warm climate, but perhaps best suited for moderate climate, as the generous sized pockets, and reinforcements, double up the fabric in many areas. More than enough room in the pants to fit over thermals for cold climate use. Velcro leg closures are a useful detail, and reinforcement is everywhere. If one of the sizes fits you properly, you can definitely get a great deal with these pants. Brand new as advertised; i am very pleased with them.
As a NATO uniform and field gear collector, I was glad to receive a pair of ABL combat trousers in new condition with a 1982-dated Seyntex label. I could not buy these for much less money in Belgium.
Just received these today and tried them on. They fit exceptionally well and are nicely made and comfortable. I love the belt loops and pockets! I think they'll be great to wear to the range. I like them so much, I might buy another pair... an exceptional buy at about $20. Thank you KEEPSHOOTING.COM for another fantastic product!!!!
I love these pants! These pants will last a really long time. There was a lot of love and care that went into the construction of these pants. No U.S. GI pants/trousers I have ever worn, including when I was active duty in the Marines, have come close to these pants. Thank you again for carrying these, and with the great price! I also wanted to add that they do shrink, and these are the first pair of pants that I have owned in many, many years that I can wear without a belt. They have buttons on the side that allow you to make the waist smaller. The USGI straps for making the waist smaller never stayed put for me, I found that the USGI ones always came loose after a while, not with these. I have been going on long hikes, and no problem what so ever.
If your thinking about it, do it. Buy these while you still can! You won't find quality like this in your local hole in the wall Surplus Store.
I bought these because of the price, and I wanted a good pair of hiking pants. The quality is absolutely better than anything you could buy in a retail store. Mine were a little big, but with a wash and adjusting the waist with the buttons, and a belt the pants fit pretty good, a little baggy, but I'm sure that they will shrink a little more. I am seriously tempted to buy another pair, they are that good. I would call and make sure you get the right size, I might go to a tailor and see if they can't make it a little tighter around the waist.
These pants are awesome! Very heavy weight. Belt loops, buttons, pockets galore. Velcro blouses for boots. They are the toughest construction of any pants I ever owned. The waist seemed to run smaller than what I expected. I ordered what I thought would be 34 but it fits like a 31 inch. I just don't button the top button. I could stand to lose a inch anyhow.
