Finally Found a Cargo Pant That's Worth It!
I have been trying to hunt down a good pair of light cargo pants for what seems like two years. Everything I came across was either 'skinny jeans' fitment, too baggy, or just had an overload of useless cargo pockets from top to bottom.

These are simple and effective. All pockets make sense and the side cargo panels are angled on the sides for less cumbersome access.

Cargo pants are scary to wash, because you never know how much that cotton will shrink. These have been washed a handful of times and not alterations in size or fitment so far. Phew!

I bought the Yukon color. Wish the Burnt Olive was a little darker tone, wasn't a fan of the light shade of green when I saw them in person. That's just my preference though.

Once again, I picked up a pair of these only to see the Force apparel go on sale, and once again, I'm happy to report it was still worth it.

Excellent for tough summer wear. I wish they did them without the cargo pockets. That would make them even lighter

What stain removers are safe? I used dawn dish soap and a Fels-Naptha bar to remove a small trailer grease spot and now there is a quarter sized white spot on where the stain used to be. I just bought these pants less than a week ago. They are the Yukon shade if it matters.

How are there for hiking and camping? Light, dry quick, durability, etc.
A shopper on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For day hikes, I’m sure they’re great. I wouldn’t overnight in them. “Cotton kills” is still true. They dry faster than cotton usually does, but I wouldn’t bet against hypothermia on how quickly they dried in my house. Also, they’re a touch on the heavy side...

Car camping— you bet. Backpacking— find something designed for it.
