i've got a couple of pairs.
very hard wearing but take ages to dry.
as you said the pockets aren't huge but i found them ok. (the right hand cargo pocket has a small knife pouch in it which is very handy)
personally i prefer us army m65 trousers.
thanks mate, i must have been half asleep posting it there! nevermind.
grateful for the respnse, i'm gonna get some for the summer. i would use lightweights exclusively otherwise because of their sheer resilliance, but they aren't so comfotable all the time. thanks, very helpful.
