Great shorts

I purchased 3 of these utility shorts, the brown, black and gray. The material (cordura) is a smart choice for durability. A little stiffer and heavier than your usual cotton blends, but that adds to the longevity these shorts will provide. I dont worry about brushing up and snagging on things. Pockets galore for equipment and tools of many trades. Worth the price and definately worth giving 1620 a try. Customer service is great for any questions are concerns, 24 hour turn around.

My Ticket In

I had on my entire ensemble of a 1620 sweatshirt and new utility shorts as I walked into my local heavy equipment rental office. I was welcomed with friendly grunts by staff and warehouse employees, I even got my chops busted and was able to roll with it. None of them figured I was just a dad renting a thatcher for a 1 hour job.

1620 quality is unmatched. The basic hoodie has been worn daily during the winter with nothing else needed for warmth. The utility pants are indestructible and have made my routine maintenance and tasks rather enjoyable. Noting mostly the usefulness of well placed, and spacious, pockets. I had to get these shorts because the pants and hoodie are worth every penny. Keep up the great work.

Utility shorts

These shorts are the "real deal" as they are indestructible with my working outside in warmer weather and working in all conditions in Maine. The fabric is unbelievable tough and handles grease, etc with no worries. Throw in the wash and carry on. BEST quality work wear around and damn proud to say MADE IN THE USA. Thanks 1620

This is my second pair of these shorts. They are the best and most functional shorts I have found anywhere. Plus made in the USA is a key feature that I could not appreciate anymore!!
