    Default Cargo pants

    Tried some, liked them. Lots of pockets, more useful than jeans.

    The 5.11 brand is OK.

    Want to get an even more loose cargo pants than 5.11, suggestions?
    So they are more comfortable to run in.

    I like:

    http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/s...ns.shtml#pants
    http://www.columbia.com/pants-men/

    The Duluth are made of a stiffer material.
    The Scott pants are most incognito and comfy to me.
    I like the Silver Ridge from Columbia. But look around, you may like another.

    All of these get my wifes seal of approval.

    lol, I didn't know that. They make tons of stuff I wasn't aware of. I found this out a few weeks back when I actually sat down and went through their website. I kinda got me eyes on that belt with a zipper. Looks like a secure stash spot.

    X2 on the surplus store.

    Don't know about modern fatigues, but the old Vietnam type used to have a button fly...and draw string type cords on each hip, so you could cinch 'em down as needed.

    They sure are some comfy pants.

    I like my tropic weight cargo pants from LL Bean... I have three pair!

    I love Duluth stuff too... I'm guessing their cargo pants are a bit heavier.

    I wear BDUs because they have the biggest pockets. For running I guess you'd choose the rip-stop ones. They're thinner and dry faster than the cotton ones. I have both.

    I saw their gear on Pinterest. Super tactical looking. I really like the look. I would venture to guess they are tough as nails. They look bullet proof. ha I am not sure the wifey will go for that though. She already says, "you look ready for war" when we head out. lol

    My mom's a Pinner and while she was looking I reached over and ran some flashlight related searches and found a lot actually. Someone pinned a pic I had taken of some of my McGizmos. Who knew?! Ok, I'm way OT here.

    I like the LA Police Gear pants. The two pairs I have are a year old and don't show any wear.
