The Lengths Beyond Tactical Will Go To

I recently met with Beyond Clothing’s Scott Jones to discuss his latest products. He showed me these modified level 9 pants with strips of Velcro loop all over them. He explained that the pants were originally built to support a DHS data collection effort for Law Enforcement uniforms. They allowed officers from several agencies to wear the pants in a variety of situations and place pockets of various sizes and shapes in the optimal position for their duties.

Now, Beyond uses these pants as a tool to help small organizations to customize their feature sets. This really shortens the development cycle so that fewer prototypes have to be made as the configuration can be converted into a pattern. It’s just one of the customization tools Beyond Clothing brings to the customer.

    Are these stiffen trousers comfortable ?
    Are the pockets bound strongly enough to use them with confidence ?
    And won’t the velcro retain everything like vegetation, dust or ice ?

      I don’t think you get what is going on here at all. Beyond uses this so that users can configure pockets the way they want while wearing them and then Beyond uses that to produce a pattern.

    That’s a good idea.

    Some of the worst looking pants I’ve seen. Not to mention uncomfortable looking as well.

    I don’t get it why some people think is a joke or a bad idea. User receives this kind of pants (or other clothing), he puts the pockets exactly where he wants them, and send the pants back to Beyond, who now have an exact template of how their customer wants it. Is that correct? If it is, then is a fast and cheap way of producing clothing with custom modifications.
