    I wasn't impressed.

    32x36, please!




    3 things very good about USA jeans, IMO:

    1. Waist is higher in rear, designed around sitting, not standing

    2. Little elastic piece in the waistband keeps them snug but not binding

    3. Zipper unzips almost all the way to your taint, making fishing out the junk for cathing much easier.

    It's a novel idea, but seriously guys would you really wear them? I can see (maybe) if you worked in a really casual setting like an auto shop but not in a professional setting. Sorry but those pants are not what I would want to see my wc friend wearing.

    Yea, cargo pockets lay sideways so things can fall out easily. But with a slight mod, the flap opening can be closed and the side of the pockets (which are on top of the thigh) can be opened so things won't fall out. These pockets are less conspicuous as they're still part of the pant design, and gives much more room than jean pockets (which are pretty flat especially when new and not stretched out like those jeans your dad has worn since you were born, and having had that thick wad of a wallet he's shoved his life into, into his backside for years).

    I can't see your adaptation working well for a quad, but hey, whatever works!

    A POCKET ON THE BACK OF THE CALF FOR MY PHONE, ID & (oops caps) lipstick would be discreet even when sitting with my legs crossed, don'tcha think? It's hard to constantly be carrying purses and keeping your hands free, and you can't always dress up cargo pants...

    Cool idea. When I'm in my chair and I want to carry various items on me, I like wearing my LA Police Gear Operator pants with the lower leg pockets. The thigh pockets are quite nice and work great while sitting too as they are slanted.
