Love everything about them. AR pouches and pistol mag pouches in the zippered cargo pockets. Roomy fit, some 34's can be tight but tight but these are fine. My zippers aren't noisy like the one zipperhead's review says. Great job
I think the pocket design is great on this pair of pants, the two main pockets are big enough and the phone and notes don't press against your thighs when you sit down. You can even take them out with ease.
Also really liked the pockets for knee pads, which I really needed when I was rappelling.
Got these on sale for $50. For that price you would be hard pressed to find a better value in a pant. The weight is good for standing up to use without being overly heavy and hot. The pants breathe well despite not having side vents or anything. The knee pad pockets fit some soft foam pads well and held up to a lot of sliding and crawling since I got them. Stitching is well done and reinforced. I do wish the cargo pockets and front pockets were located slightly more anterior to get out of the way of stuff on a belt but it’s a minor quibble. Great pant overall.
