Trousers. Combat. Rip-Stop. Austrian. O/G.

This is a brief over view of Kevins write up...
You can find full details by heading over to his web page 

Over the years here at ENDYS we have sold tens of thousands of pairs of Trousers and this one has to rate as one of our favourites !!

 Sourced from Austria they offer a great combination of practicality, robustness and awesome value for money.
Plus, they come in a refreshingly different, and somewhat subdued, Dark Olive colour.
With  "T.A.R-S"  you'll have ample Pocket-space with 2 x deep Front Slash Pockets.........

2 x semi-bellowed Leg / Cargo / Map Pockets........., within each Leg Pocket you'll find 1 x 1D 'security-style' Pocket.

The Pocket-tops are covered with a Flap and the Pocket is 
secured via a premium-branded Zipper. A 'Puller' is also present, ideal for easier operation with Gloved hands etc. 

The two front Slash Pockets are self-lined - i.e They're lined using the same  Fabric as the main structure of the Trouser - always  a good sign of high quality / premium manufacturing.

What about the Fabric ?
OK, now this an interesting one and, unusually, for Military Combat / Field Trousers, "T.A.R-S"  are made from a 'peached-finish' Poly/Cotton. This gives the face of the Fabric a 'lush' texture and superb 'drape'. Yet, during our Strength and Stability Tests, scored 9 out of 10. Basically this is a value of weight-to-strength-to-durability ratio, and although the fabric itself is deemed 'Lightweight' it has an integral 'Rip-Stop' making it extremely strong, rip / tear resistant and very, very robust. 
Just how Trousers should  be made.........

The leg bottoms are finished with an elasticated / toggled arrangement. Ideal to secure the opening to help prevent ingress of, say, a snake.........

There are 6 Belt Loops which would take a Belt up to 1.5" / 38mm wide. The Loops themselves are self-fabric'd and are approx. 0.75" / 20mm in width.
