Cargo pants are also known as combat trousers, after their original military purpose. The large pockets characteristic of cargo pants were originally designed for British forces to hold field dressings, maps, and other battlefield essentials. These pants are loosely cut and are mostly designed for tough, outdoor activities. Ed Harry provides cargo pants that are made of hard wearing fabric and are ruggedly stitched for long-lasting wear.
If you are tired of having to carry a bag around just for a few items, then you should definitely consider investing in a pair of cargo pants. Although originally worn by soldiers, cargo pants became popular in urban areas where their large, multiple pockets were the perfect alternative to carrying a bag.
Another big plus for these pants is that they are usually made of a quick-drying synthetic or cotton-synthetic blend fabric, and they are very easy to wash. These garments are also designed to allow bending at the knee and hip, and are sewn with felled seems for strength and durability.
