Ladies in Leggings

One of the newest tactical apparel offerings are carry leggings for women. Riding the popularity of the mainstream women’s legging segment, several manufacturers, like Tactica Defense Fashion, offer the ultra-comfortable pants that allow for concealed carry.

The jury’s still out on the legging segment. Some manufacturers reported slower sales than anticipated. However, most women we talked to who have tried the leggings like them.

“I love my Tactica leggings,” says Anne Marlow Conrad, a shooter and outdoor industry journalist. “They wear great, wash great, and are super comfy. They’re not too thin and have a high enough waist to cinch what needs cinchin’. I carry both my Glock 42 and 19 comfortably.”

Despite the growing popularity, concealed carry leggings are still difficult to find in retail stores, and finding designs that provide a comfortable, sturdy fit, with maximum security, is an added obstacle.

Many gals also feel carrying a holster gets too bulky but want to keep their firearm on them. Tactica has them covered. Tactica has engineered its concealed-carry leggings to fit all the needs of women who carry. The versatile leggings are stylish enough to wear out on the town, rock at the gym, or just to take a nice walk. In addition, the leggings are set apart by a durable material that offers a quality fit and carry performance.

The leggings are focused on safe carry. So, the leggings offer two pocket holsters that boast a strong layer of TPE polymer sewn in to protect the firearm’s trigger guard. Users have peace of mind knowing the trigger is protected while wearing the leggings. These holster pockets allow women to carry in the 12:30 or 4:30 position. An additional pocket is perfect to hold a phone or credit cards.

5.11 also has plans to augment their ladies lineup to include leggings. “We entered the women’s outdoor apparel market several years ago,” explains says Matt Page, vice president, Global Product at 5.11. “We’ve seen considerable growth and potential in this segment of the business and expect to see continued growth in the years ahead.

“Speaking specifically to women’s leggings, 5.11 currently offers several styles intended for fitness and everyday use. We have plans to introduce a new legging with range-specific functionality in 2024.”
