Delta Cargo Pant TRS T-Fit - UFG
Each feature and detail serves a purpose. Our industrial grade construction methods use heavy duty nylon thread, triple needle stitching on major seams, and more bar-tacks to reinforce stress points than probably any other short being made today. Many of these construction details aren’t obvious without us calling them out, but you’ll know they’re there when these pants hold up and do their job.
Design highlights include low profile cargo pockets, no-twist custom delta-ring clip points, no-loss parasmock style slotted buttons, high mobility "horseshoe" gusset panel, diamond double seat, double knees, dedicated EDC Tool pockets, work wear style slash hand pockets which are accessible when using a pack waist or utility to first line belt, and our tough, durable Technical Ripstop fabric.

BLUF: Buy a pair of these NOW. The Delta Cargo TRS checks a lot of boxes for me, especially for cooler/cold months. I haven't owned mine long enough to comment on durability or longevity, so bear that in mind.
All that aside, PDW really hit the mark with these. Starting with the popular and proven Ranger Field Pant pocket layout, they added very low profile but voluminous cargo pockets onto each upper thigh. Unlike every single other cargo pant I've owned or seen, these are very unobtrusive, and don't feel like you have a dump pouch sewn onto each thigh. I like the cargo pockets much more than the rear accessory/magazine pockets on the Raider Field Pant. I don't have daily need to stash AR mags in my pants, I have a battle belt and plate carrier for that. I DO have daily need for on-body pistol magazine carry options, and the Delta's cargo pocket fills that need. The EDC tool pocket sewn onto the outside of the main pockets is still there, but has been augmented with the addition of another option. Unlike a regular pocket to clip folding knives and tools onto, the EDC tool pockets always seemed placed just perfectly to catch a tool in a seatbelt while in a vehicle. There is now a reinforced clip point ('Oversized tool slot') at the top middle of each cargo pocket flap. The advantage to this is that if a tool/knife becomes detached, it simply falls into the interior of the cargo pocket. Well done, PDW. The accessory pockets and Delta clip rings have been retained on these pants. Lastly, the rear pockets are horizontal zip style, finally offering a chance for those of us who live in cooler/colder climates to keep snow and detritus out of pockets while seated.
Besides having a very understated and functional pocket layout, the Delta TRS offers a great materials upgrade over NYCO/+ rip-stop. The TRS material is a nylon/spandex hybrid and is water resistant. Think of a light soft-shell pant with DWR finish, and these are what you'd have. While they're somewhat thinner than the soft shell pants I'd use in exclusively cold, snowy conditions, they're nevertheless capable when used in appropriate situations. Sustained light to medium rain beads off of the fabric, and they dry rather quickly once removed from the elements. Along with good surface protection, they also offer excellent mobility. The stretch of the fabric is perfectly balanced and moves with the user. This increases functionality and ease of movement but also means that items in pockets don't bulge out conspicuously due to shifts in weight distribution and body movement.
I have no significant criticisms of these pants except for two minor points, and I won't be losing sleep over either one. The first is the little velcro patch square on the thigh. I have no use for this, which has only functioned as a collection point for dog hair, pollen, snow and dirt.
The second is the 'secret' pocket inside the left rear belt line. These have been retained in multiple iterations of PDW's pants, and I just don't see why. Anyone with true, real world need for a secret stash spot in their clothing WON'T be choosing something that obvious. In more boring, quotidian situations, all it does is flop out and hang from the top of the belt line, and awkwardly so.
Bottom line, buy these. Hell, buy two, you probably won't regret it.J
A great-fitting pant that looks good enough for trail or town. Ample pockets, although I removed the stash pocket on the back inner waist as it has the tendency hang outside the waist when empty.
