    I am on my second pair of these cargo pants. While you do not really need all of these pockets, the fit is nice and they are a perfect weight for south Georgia swamp country. I particularly like the generous cut in the stride and the adjustable waist.

    Best pants, consistently! - 7/25/2015
    By: from Odessa, Tx

    I have been buying these pants for years. I have always been pleased with the consistent quality. Please,Orvis, never stop offering these pants for sale. No one else in the outdoor clothing business is at all close to your product! The only improvement you need to make is to leave 2" of cloth in the crotch for let out. You could do the same -waist.

    By: from Tampa , Florida

    Fantastic pants to travel with. No need for hand bag. Passports, credit cards, cash and coins in different currency, maps, cell phones, brochures, etc. Always felt secure and safe. Very comfortable walking or sitting for hours in a plane. Needs ironing if you care after a few washings. Go easy on detergents, color not completely secure.

    Orvis, always superb, have excelled themselves. - 7/18/2015

    These Expedition Cargo's are the most comfortable trousers I have ever owned and I dislike having to take them off. They are exactly the right trousers for all outdoor activities and baggy enough for maximum freedom. Well done, Orvis, and thank you.

    These pants provide plenty of storage for cell phones, keys, etc. and are very comfortable. They allow you to not have to have cell phone holsters, etc. while looking sharp.

    Most comfortable cargo pants I've owned - 7/6/2015
    By: from Alexandria VA

    Of the cargo pants I've owned from three manufactures the Orvis 14 Pocket Expedition Poplin Cargo Pants are the most stylist, softest and comfortable pants. They are classy enough to wear to work as well as on the trail, although I would feel guilty getting them dirty. :-)

Bush Poplin

Cool, crisp cotton fabric that holds up under pressure

You'll enjoy the casual comfort and style of our men's cotton drawstring trousers.Bush Poplin is a microcanvas, consisting of yarns half the thickness often used in its beefier cousin, Orvis Rhinohide, yet nearly equal in it's durability. Bush Polin is a light and soft natural fabric able to withstand years of wear and washings, yet remains crisp and neat.

Great for Warm Weather Wear

Each yarn of Bush Poplin is composed of several fibers twisted tightly together, resulting in a fabric that is abrasion- resistant, yet feels cool and relatively weightless on the body. Maximizing cotton's natural advantages, the basic microcanvas weave consists of a balanced, interlocking pattern of mid-weight yarns on the warp (vertical weave) and slightly slimmer yarns on the weft (horizontal weave). This weave maximizes yarn strength while allowing for a considerable measure of breathability. You'll never feel stifled, even in the most wilting tropical heat.

The Traditional Safari Attire for Your World Adventures

Cotton poplin was the preferred fabric used by British colonists when on safari. Our collection offers the timeless and classic style of this traditional attire. Testament to poplin's versatile, rugged characteristics, it comprised the bulk of the fabrics used on all fronts during World War II. For the U.S. military, poplin fabrics struck the best balance between comfort, durability and crisp uniformity, holding up well to extensive field abuse and thousands of industrial-strength washings yet still presenting well in review. A 5-oz. cotton microcanvas, Bush Poplin is known for its comfort in warmer conditions, exceptional travel-worthiness, and durability.
