These are some of the nicest pants we sell! They are a vintage paratrooper design from the 1950s, updated to meet today's style and performance requirements. These are stonewashed, so they are super soft, yet made from poly/cotton twill, so they are durable. With the reinforced seat and knees — a holdover from their military heritage — you won't wear them out easily, so they will feel great and last virtually forever. These pants have eight pockets so there's plenty of room for your phone, palm, iPod and other gear. They have adjustable waist tabs and drawstring bottoms. If you pull out the draw strings, you'll get a flared leg. The good news is that unlike our formal military BDUs, these cargo pants have zippered fly.
