    Bargain.

    Posted by Leigh Ratcliffe on 16th Sep 2020

    I don't know why these are getting s****y review's. Your getting a lot for your money. I am using these as work trousers. I spend a lot of time jumping on & off fork lift trucks etc. That means I need a lot of pockets for pens, notepads etc & the cargo pockets on these are flat out excellent for that sort of thing.

    decent for the price

    Posted by kten on 8th Dec 2016

    As for the bad fit that is user error and not the pants but the reviewers mistake, SFU series are deliberately over baggy. CPU a bit less but UTP are Helikons none baggy model so reviewer should have bought them. As for phones fitting mine does but those pockets are not made for phones so I wont praise/criticise on that as it is more luck, I find they fit tools perfect, and I imagine you could hold smg or pistol mags with them just fine which seems closer to the intended purpose, not a universal phone pocket. They do have downsides, the none twill rs version are nothing different to other cheap combats save for better hookloop on some sfu stuff or slightly better cut comnpared to other baggy combats, material is same as likes of teesar (standard thin c*p that isn't silent when new either which may affect some like hunters/wildlife togs etc). The twill ones are better than anything in close pricerange and are great. Knees take neoprene protectors and stand up to kneeling on concrete etc for me. The stitching on both types is hit and miss. Some need to tidy seems but I haven't but buttons have broke on mine. Waist adjusters are awful so I cut them and just wear a belt as they wont hold and I wear 2 inch bigger. For actual SFU military use they are totally not up to it but neither are most options without going close to triple figures or over. Eg. not NIR treated (Helikons pencott stuff is) and have poly in the mix so would melt to you with flash, admittedly wont affect anyone as operators would be getting other stuff issued anyway. I buy them from Poland at around £22ish and they are my main work pants, I currently have 8 or 9 pairs and no problems. Restitching with alterfil or similar I have no issues.

    I like them

    Posted by Bruce on 23rd Nov 2016

    I have two pair of these trousers and have enjoyed wearing them. Unlike some, I like the cut. They aren't meant to be fashionable, but functional, and for me they do it well. The stitching doesn't look the best, but I've not had any failures. I've had buttons fall off brand new pairs of very expensive trousers.

    Very good value

    Posted by Hugh on 16th Aug 2016

    Bought two pairs from Heinnie to go with two that I already own. These ones are a 'newer model' than my original pair with a number of improvements. Internal pockets in the (very large) cargo pockets, intended I suppose for magazines but fit my large phone perfectly. These are good for tools as well, keeps them snug without the pockets bulging out. The waistband tensioners have velcro now as well as the buckle. Still don't really like the button up fly but I'm used to it and it's not really a bother. I spend a fair bit of time on my knees on concrete floors fixing things, the material has yet to fail on any pair I have and the knee pad pockets are a good idea.

    Poorly made

    Posted by Jack on 18th May 2016

    I've barely worn these trousers, but another button has just pinged off the fly, at a most inconvenient moment. If you're ill-advised enough to purchase them, I can only suggest that you re-stitch all the buttons. How reliable the rest of the stitching is remains to be seen. I was surprised at how much they faded after only one wash. Suppose they're great for sitting around in front of the telly in.

    Fair quality for the price

    Posted by Tay on 1st Mar 2016

    I decided to buy these despite the negative reviews and im glad i did ! No these are nt the best combat trousers out there but for less then £30 what do you want? Yes the buttons will fall off of them, they have on every pair Helikons ive ever owned but for me its no big deal, 5 min in front of the telly with a needle and thread and the problem is sorted. I was pleasantly surprised by the weight of the material , whilst not heavy weight not as thin as some light weights ive had. The cut of the trouser whilst not fitted suits me just fine and the addition of velcro waist adjusters means that they actually stay at the size you set them at unlike traditional ones. Bang for buck i think these are decent enough trousers and i will be buying more.

    The Poor Stitching Isn't My Only Gripe

    Posted by Jack on 15th Nov 2015

    I find the cut of these trousers absolutely awful, what a difference a diamond-shaped crutch-piece would make, instead Helikon-Tex have just made them really baggy. The fabric is not great quality, a few minutes of rain soaks it through. The stitching is second-rate throughout. I've had worse-made pants, but for a tenner or so more, you can get something so much better. I've been wearing combats for nearly 40 years, and spent around ten years working as a professional gear-tester and reviewer, so while I may have assessed these trousers rather quickly, I do have a good deal of experience of a large range of outdoor clothing. I regret buying these pants, they may have been cheap, but they were a waste of money.

    One step up from Primark

    Posted by Jack on 26th Oct 2015

    First day I wore them, one of the fly buttons came off, and looking at the stitching I doubt the others will be far behind. These are OK 'play pants', but really only one step up from Primark in terms of build quality. The design is better than the previous SFUs, but still fails - my Samsung Galaxy (not an especially large phone) is too big for the phone pocket for example. My advice is save your pennies and buy some 5:11s, they're in a different class, and better in every way.

    Awesome for the money

    Posted by Joe on 11th Apr 2015

    I just read the only other review and though that it did not do the trousers justice. I have had three pairs of Helikon SFU (one pair of the new next ones) for a good few years and have definitely put them through their paces. Sure I have had a fly button fall off, but if that is your biggest criticism then that's good. I also have a Samsung Galaxy Note with a chunky case that fits in the small front pocket, it sticks out the top a little. If you don't like that, may I suggest you try one of the other 7 pockets which are a lot bigger. Sure if you spend more you will get better quality, as is the same with anything but for £28 you won't get better than these. Although I have given up with the knee pads which definitely need to be rethought as you need about 10 minutes per knee and an in depth knowledge of origami.
