Although there are many types of combats, some more lightweight and others towards the more heavy duty side of the spectrum, they all have to be tough to deal with the rigours of work. Some feature reinforced knee panels and there is double stitching in some common stress points, as well as stretchy fabrics in some types of cargos that mean they work with you as you move, not against you.
Many on offer feature elasticated waists so that they always feel comfortable to wear during the entire working day and others are waterproof to keep you warm and dry, even if you work outdoors in all conditions.
The amount of storage in cargo pants is why so many workers in a host of different areas like to use them as standard workwear. Aside from the common side cargo pockets, these trousers usually offer a range of other storage options. Many are fastened with zips, others with velcro, and you might find stud or button closing pockets too. There are often special mobile phone pockets and loops to carry keys or ID cards whilst working your shift.
You will find an array of different colours, with white cargos aimed at painters and decorators, plus a choice of greys, blues, blacks, tans, and others on offer.
