Cargo pants are extremely practical due to the sewn pockets and also look stylish. For this reason, the pants are just as popular as workwear as they are as casual wear. No matter for what purpose you want to buy them, you can find models for every occasion at www.genxtreme.de/en.
Once developed by the military
Only a few garments from the working world have managed to successfully gain a foothold in casual fashion. Since they were originally developed for military operations during World War 2 to make it easier to transport things like ammunition in the sewn-on pockets, the English term "cargo" was used. In the early 1980s, the British took up the concept again and equipped their military with these pants. The U.S. also became aware of these practical pants and developed them further by sewing on additional pockets. First they equipped paratroopers with them and later all soldiers stationed overseas. Only then did cargo pants begin to gain acceptance in the civilian working world. They are not only popular with craftsmen and construction workers, but are also widely used by emergency services, security personnel and the police.
Practical cargo pants with plenty of storage space
The cargo pants are wide cut and therefore extraordinarily comfortable. The pockets sewn on the sides of the thighs offer plenty of space for tools such as screwdrivers, folding ruler & Co., so utensils that you constantly need on the construction or assembly. Even beer cans can be stowed in the pockets. The comfortable cut allows a lot of freedom of movement, which is extremely important when working on scaffolding or installations. They are made of durable cotton fabric and have a high elasticity. A characteristic feature is the drawstring waistband and leg cuffs. It allows you to adjust the pants and individually adapt them to your body measurements, so they always offer you additional adjustment options.
High wearing comfort due to casual fit
As casual wear, cargoes have now become accepted everywhere because of their high wearing comfort. Not only men wear them, women and children are also among their fans. For all outdoor activities, they are the ideal leisure pants due to their casual fit and robustness. On hikes, climbing or trekking tours, the freedom of movement is a big plus. Some models also have some pockets sewn above the knee. Here you can comfortably store all the little things that you need to have quickly at hand: from your wallet to your bunch of keys to your smartphone. Beyond the purely practical considerations, the cargo has long become a fashion product. Even if the cuts have become a bit tighter - not much has changed in the basic shape. Whether in olive, camouflage look, beige or other colors - the pants, designed as work pants, can be combined with other casual clothing such as sweaters and T-shirts great.
