Luxe Cargo Pants

Originally designed for tough, outdoor activities and military purposes. With cargo space and pockets to transport extra items during long trips on foot. Cargo pants, I love you!

In womenswear pockets are known to often be small, shallow, tight and sometimes even fake. I don’t like to point out things that I detest, but I detest fake pockets. As if women don’t need that extra carrying space?! It is a non-feminist and lazy way of designing. Where the appearance of the backside of the pant is more important than providing function to the woman who is going to wear those pants. Dear designers, a good pocket on the butt cheek is much appreciated.

It is refreshing to have pockets to hold all daily necessities and some more. On a day when I am photographing these include memory cards, batteries, lens caps, cases, on top of my phone, lip balm, keys, wallet and snacks. I found this perfect pair in heavy high tech fabric with a satin finish that make a bag (almost) obsolete.

    YES! Thank you for the feminist rant. I never really understood the idea behind fake pockets or pockets too tight to use.
