I just wanted to share my latest find. Vertx Pants. I received 2 pairs of these for Christmas in both OD and Desert Tan. They are by far the most comfortable pair of pants I have ever worn. I now prefer them over my Mtn Khakis. The 98%cotton 2% spandex material feels like regular cotton, but has the slightest bit of give when you pull on the fabric. The articulated knee allows a great freedom of movement and keeps your pant legs from creeping up while seated. I'm not big on cargo pockets, but these are so hidden and tucked away you do not notice you have them. There is an inner pocket in both cargo areas that is designed to hold an M16 magazine, but is perfect for a smartphone. Their positioning and low profile make it so I don't even notice I have my phone in there, which is sometimes bad, because it makes me think I left it somewhere. Normally I hate, and I mean hate elastic in the wast band. These, although when off, look like there is a bunch of material, but in reality, when on, lay almost perfectly flat and don't look like there is any elesatic. I have found that the elastic is great in keeping the waist the same tension no matter how many days in a row you wear them. As I had a week off around the holidays, I tested this theory by wearing my desert Tan pair for 7 days straight. Even after that they still felt like a fresh pair. Nothing felt stretched out or extra baggy. As for sizing, they are TRUE to size. If you measure 32", buy 32" waist. The legs run a little long. My inseam is 33-1/2 inches. Usually that means that I have to wear a 34" inseam. With Vertx, just like Mtn Khaki, I have to wear a 32" inseam.
Best of all you can get these pants for $50. Here are some reviews and other sites regarding the pants.
Not me, but an example of the pants.
