    poplin cargo pants - 9/30/2014
    By: from Greenwood, MS

    Everything about these pants is what I hoped they would be except the snaps on the sides for takeup/letout don't want to stay snapped and it would be nice if another way to handle that could be found. Otherwise very comfortable for our hot area of the country.

    Cargo pants have become a staple in the past 10 years. Orvis sells a good product. The fit is quite good but the look is a bit baggy. The color is a bit "muddy". Overall I would recommend them to a friend.

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.
