SHOT Show 18 – Viktos

Viktos is a new clothing brand which has one foot planted in the off road world and the other in shooting sports. It’s a great combination. I had seen it on Instagram for several months and my friend Dan Brokos has been wearing their stuff, but SHOT Show was my first chance to check it out in person. I like what I see. Although Viktos offers a full line, which even includes boot and gloves, I’m going to present you with two pants and one short.

Gunfighter Denim Jeans


This articulated fit is made from Cordura stretch denim and features a Cordura crotch, padded waistband with hidden pocket, oversize beltloops, Hipshoot magazine pockets, and Cashout pistol magazine coin pocket.

Khaktical Pants


The name is a portmanteau of Khaki and Tactical. They are made from a NYCO blend, with gussetted crotch, padded waistband with hidden pocket, oversize beltloops, Hipshoot magazine pockets, zippered thigh pockets, and integrated web belt.  Offered in Greyman, Fieldcraft (pictured), Nightfall and Spartan.

EDC Shorts


Essentially, this is the short version of the Khaktical Pants. Same features.

    I dig the jeans. Are they sized for IWB carry, or is it best to go up a size?

    • Mosrr says:

      They appear to be sized (from their site) normally—without regard to iwb carry, so consider waist appropriately while factoring in the stretch part of it. Also they seem to be somewhat slimmer cut.

    By “Slimmer cut” I think you mean “skinny jeans for hipster fucks”. So no…this is a hard pass for me. Also, those khaki pants look like something a woman wears to the beach. I kept look for their “Tactical” capri pants.

    Isn’t that the idea of being discreet? Look like a hipster fuck so that no one suspects that inside your lady capris, you’re a well-armed death dealer.

      I call it “hippyflage”, dress in manner normal to those in your area/age/gender and no one will take notice. This doesn’t mean you to wear skinny jeans, or clothes you don’t like. Showing up in tactical pants, and jackets with bicep pockets with big patch panels on them, Gadsden shirt, Velcro panel hat, and combat boots draws the eye though.

        But if I don’t show up to the mall in my multicam pants and 5.11 shirt how will people know that I’m not to be trifled with?
