Mountain Khakis on the Range

Range pants are important. They need to fit so that you are not in a bind when you bend – no skinny jeans please – and they need enough pockets to hold all your goodies like empty magazines, ammo, ear plugs and such. Yesterday was my 2nd day of wearing Mountain Khakis new Original Cargo Pant on the range here at Gunsite. I like ’em!

First, you have the traditional two front pockets with a shelf for a clip knife on the right side and a hidden third pocket behind. Then there are two mid-leg pockets with snaps and two rear pockets with snaps. There is also a cell phone pocket on the right side which works great for an iPhone which obviously doubles as a shot timer and that you can also use to photo your good targets to send to your buddies and brag.

They’re also comfortable and durable. (If you have ever ran the Scrambler at Gunsite you know that no pansy pants need apply.)

I also like the fact that I don’t look like a tactard or range ninja while wearing them.
