All the function and comfort of your favorite old fatigue pants made even tougher (and of course, shorter). Because for these shorts, we've requisitioned the same rugged 11.7-oz 100% Fire Hose Cotton of our work pants. It's tougher than duck in a rugged 2x2 weave that's washed down for surprising softness. FendOff™ finish repels water and stains too. Big bellowed cargo pockets for gear and waist has take-up tabs in case you lose weight in the field. We've even gone one step better than original and added a Crouch Gusset for freedom of movement.
