I work in agriculture, in an engineering/manufacturing role. Some days I'm in the office, other days I'm in the dirt. Pockets - everything I need to carry, paint pens, note pads, wrenches, ear pro, flashlight, tape measure all has a home. Fit - I have thunder thighs, I can't put on a pair of work shorts or pants made by other manufacturers unless they're 2 sizes too big in the waist. These fit perfectly. With the cordura I was concerned about mobility, I'm not anymore. I used to wear a pair of stretch and flex material shorts, but thunder thighs wore holes in the fabric in 9 months. I'm on week three and I wear them every day, I'll keep you posted as they wear in. I was worried about grinding/sparks burning holes, I'm not anymore. I'll be buying more. I recommend you get the pants too. Equally as LEGIT. Thanks you to the 1620 crew for providing an option for those of us that want to support American manufacturing. Excellent product.
