Extra pockets are good. Just ask Engineered Garments, whose FA Pant has maybe one or two more pockets than you might need on a daily basis. But that’s far from a bad thing. I think we can all agree it’s nice to have some extra pocket space on your person, you can have a dedicated pocket for every item in your carry—phone, wallet, keys, gum, lint, one of your fancy knives—or whatever the kids have in their cargo these days. It’s still tater tots for me.
Cut from a navy cotton double cloth, not an unsubstantial fabric, it’s gonna wear in and form to your lower half much like a pair of denim pants would. The knees are articulated for ease of movement, so don’t be afraid to squat down in these, especially with the extra room this style seems to afford the lower-half of their wearer.
Manufactured in NYC, I count eight gusseted flap pockets, all of which have tonal button closures. BDU-style cuff lashings mean you can tie them up easily, when crossing streams, or when showing off your leg tats.
