    $22 on racks at Walmart, $35-44 on Amazon

    The flush cargo pockets keep stuff from swinging around when walking, while the stretch-flex fabric allows them to be overstuffed. As other reviews say, these don't look like Cargo Pants (so its unlikely your boss would say "no cargo pants, slacks only").

    If you work outside, I recommend getting one size for summer and larger size to wear over long johns (although the excellent stretch helps span sizing). Did I mention they shed water while highly breathable?

    IMO these pants are superior in every way to normal cargo pants. They are 100% synthetic fiber so they dry fast and avoid https://hackyourpack.com/all-posts/2...y-cotton-kills

    They also rollup small.

    IMO they are a hacked reverse engineered version of these. I've got some Tweave yardage and fabric of Walmart pants is lighter but similar. https://www.1620usa.com/collections/durastretch-cargo Nice but $300.00!
    I got 2 pair and use them for everyday wear and hiking, LOVE THEM!

    Because if its just seams I like these so much I might actually force myself to unpack my brand new 3yr old sewing machine.

    I DID find one or two places where stitching was coming undone and dabbed a spot of fabric glue on inside to lock thread.

    Fabric. That's why I like True Spec they have a reinforced seat
