Will the 5.11 Apex Pants stand up to the rigors of Circus life? Tim Kennedy did the splits in these so I had to put them to a test myself. Putting the 5.11 Apex Pants to a real tactical challenge. Will they rip when put through a heavy workout or will they bust open when we get in the aerial silks to do some splits. These pants have been great. Plenty of pockets to carry extra magazines, ammo, pacifiers, and snacks depending on what you may face that day. Plus they look nice and fit well!!
