    Default Tan EMT pants?

    Anyne ever seen a pair of tan EMT pants? I am looking for a pair. A company I am trying to get on (Ambulance) uniform is a navy polo with tan pants. I know I could always just get a pair of Dickes. But my EMT pants I have already are the most comfrontable pants I have owned. So I would like to stay with something like them if I can. Plus I like the pocket set up.


    Anyone ever seen any before?

    If I recall correctly, Boston and Worcester EMS wear tan and brown uniforms, so thy do make them.

    5.11 makes a variety of different styles, including some with EMT style pockets, in a variety of colors. Might give them a try.

    Now they didn't have them in an EMT pant style but I found a pair on there I like. Looks like EMT pants and all the review are good. So thank you I had never heard of 5.11 before

    Yeah, I visited the site after I posted. The true EMT style pants with the place for your shears and everything are only available in blue, but their other tactical pants have lots of nifty little pockets and stuff that might serve your purpose. Law enforcement's been using them for their casual dress and training for years, I don't know how much they've branched out into the Fire/EMS community. They're supposed to be pretty rugged and comfortable.

    I have seen various different "strap on" holsters for bandage sheers, pen lights, etc. Maybe those would work with a regular pair of khakis? If any of their employees have the type of pants you are looking for might ask who they order them through.

    An EMS service near here where sthe 5.11 tan pants and they seem to like them. I have a couple of pair and I think they're pretty comfortable and have worn well, so far. They don't make anything set up like traditional EMS pants (Pro-Tuff is what I always wore), but a guy can figure out pretty quick where to tuck things in them.

    Why people feel the need to keep shears in thier cargo pocket is beyond me anyway.

    why may I ask. Why not keep a small item there so you have it when you need it? I do not agree with guys bulking up their pants with every size shear, glove pouch, and a pen light, but there is nothing wrong with a small pair of ems shears if you run a lot of traumas. I keep a small pair of trauma shears in my duty pants, stick it in there and forget about it untill I need it.
