    They might be shoot-me-first pants in Iraq and Afghanistan, where contractors sometimes wear 'em.

    :D

    The 'tactical' pants don't look all that much different from the paratrooper pants of WW2. They are simply pants with extra pockets.

    They look like regular cargo pants to me, with a couple of extra pockets. If you wear an untucked t-shirt those two on the front may not even be visible. The knee reinforcement isn't even that visible, I had to look at the picture twice to see that. I doubt that people are going to be eyeballing your pants as they go about their day, they probably have enough things on their mind that they would not even notice.

    The only problem is that kids wear pre messed up cargo pants. Put a few holes in your "tatical pants" and make them faded and they will look more like a regular pair of cargo pants.

    All I have to say is that that's a pretty brave admission, mate. I personally wouldn't be caught dead in "operator tactical pants" under any circumstances, but that's just me, I guess.

    You may also consider avoiding gangbangers on general principal, FWIW.

    I don't know what y'all are calling a "shoot me first vest" but when my ex wife was doing rescue squad duty, she called the turnout coat with the reflective strips that formed a "T" right at chest level her "shoot me first" coat.

    I wouldn't wear one. Those are pretty ugly.

    They look like pretty plain pants to me. Some of the ones with the super thick colored knee pads and 25 pockets on them look "tactical". I probably wouldn't notice or think anything of someone wearing those particular ones in the photo. The 5.11 type vests on the other hand...I always think they are using them for concealed carry. I find that a lot of other people who are not into firearms think they are wearing a fishing vest or a photographer's vest. We look for that stuff because we talk about it and think about it frequently. Others don't.

    The notion that gangbangers look for that type of stuff is silly to me.

    The only time I wear mine is when carrying my S&W 410S.

    That's attributing a great deal of intelligence to someone not worthy of it.
