I first bought a pair of tough combat-style trousers a year or two ago to replace a pair of tough jeans I had worn out. I had not owned a pair of combat trousers before but I was so impressed with the cut and quality that I have subsequently bought two further pairs. If you don’t know where to get them, try the local men’s trousers wholesaler.
These combats are a polyester-cotton mix in olive camouflage and are available in a wide variety of sizes from your friendly men’s trousers wholesaler. If you are looking to buy a pair you are likely to find a pair that fits you from one source or another. Of course, pockets are important in any pair of trousers and these pants have two expanding bellows pockets on the leg, two waist pockets and a rear pocket.
As I said, these pants are a polyester-cotton mix and felt pretty tough when I felt the material for the first time. After over a year’s worth of wear, I am pleased to say that they have not suffered from the miles of hiking and rough camping I have inflicted on them. In fact, they look good enough to be worn out with a t-shirt as an alternative to jeans.
A drawstring waist cord and 2-inch belt loops ensure that a good fit to exactly suit the wearer is easily possible. There are also drawstrings around the ankles which mean that the trousers can be bloused around boots.
Although I bought my first pair from a men’s trousers wholesaler it is possible to find these combats online in a variety of army surplus stores, many at discounted prices.
Comfortable yet hardwearing, these military trousers are suitable for a wide range of activities from hiking and camping, through to work wear and fashion wear. I would certainly recommend them to anyone wanting a versatile pair of combats.
