I wanted to get some Royal Robbins base camp pants and tried em on the other day. I loved them save the fact they are so skin tight I can bust the seams by just sitting down. These have to be the pants with the tightest legs in the world. I literally had like 1 inch of fabric left when stnading and threads popped when I squat down. Id like noraml pockets (not slanted like the 5.11) double knees, cargo pockets and a nice kahki color with no cuff and it needs to take a real belt not that built in crap. Does anyone know of a pair of pants like that?

BDU's? Now I'm all disappointed. I wanted some of the 5.11 pants. On their site it looked like they were fairly baggy pants.

Are the base camp and the 5.11 the same pants? The 5.11's are not too tight for me... what size are you looking ar?

I think RR also makes pants for mountain/rock climbing, which might make the base pants have a different "fit" than the 5.11s. I have a couple of 5.11s with 38" waists that are plenty baggy in the legs. Chris

I wear 34x34 but I have 26" thighs and I am thin for me right now. BDUs have the ties at the bottom and dont work well for casual civilian pants. The 5.11 have the slant rear pockets not regular pockets and when I took a female friend with me when I tried em on she said they made my ass look funny. (dont laugh at me lol) They are made to be tight fitting but I am a pretty big guy 6'2" 230lbs and I have a hard time fitting clothes because of my thighs and ribcage (50" chest) I am just want something to wear to replace my baggy Levis for casual wear and like the construction and look of the base camp pants. What I want are: Kahkis with no cuff or drawsting at the end of leg Regular rear pockets Double knees Canvas construction Baggy Does noone make pants like these?

Your best bet is the combat cloth bdu's from actiongear.com and then have them altered to remove the drawstring and add a hem

Could you provide a link I cant find the non drawstring / cargo pant version on the website. The only thing I found were the 4 pocket LEO uniform pants.

Devl, might check these out-look substantial and loose. sportif.com has some 6 pocket denims on sale as well. http://www.campmor.com/webapp/commerce/command/ProductDisplay?prrfnbr=27557729&prmenbr=226 sierratradingpost.com has what you're describing from time to time. Ghost

Thanks! Thats just what I was looking for. Is there someplace I could try before I buy or is this a mail order only type of deal?
