The pants have extra large cargo pockets and inside the pocket are two segmented sections up against the pant leg. So you have a large cargo pocket and inside that you have the large "dump" portion as well as two open-top pouches if you will that are better suited to organizing knives, lights, magazines, etc. The pants also have a reinforced crotch which is vitally important if you got the wrong size (a tad too small) or if you really are moving so much squatting, crouching, etc that you pull your pant's crotch constantly. It's nice not to blow out your pants and have all your buddies see what color boxers you're wearing... or that you're going commando. Reinforced crotch = good.
Inside the pants legs at the knees are the pockets to hold neoprene pads. Again, I received the pads with the uniforms and removed them before washing, replacing them before use. I know that neoprene offers little to no protection against puncture and sharp objects when you take a knee, but as I went to kneeling several times in the course of a scenario, having that padding was a lot more comfortable than banging my knees on the concrete / tiled floors of the school where we trained. For those of you who have pants that have such pockets but don't have the pads to insert, go to your local office supply store and pick up four of their generic mouse pads (usually about $1 a piece). Measure and cut them to fit your pants pad pockets. Two is better than one, but one is better than knee-on-concrete.
So, when I received the uniforms I took out all the pads and ran them through the wash a few times. Three times I ran them in hot water with heavy detergent and fabric softener. I didn't see any immediate fading. Twice more I washed them in cold water with detergent but no softener. I saw no change and the uniforms were comfortable to wear.
Taking note of the comment above about the bottom velcro tab on the shirts, I wore it tucked in for all of the training over my soft body armor. These uniforms were as comfortable as any I've ever worn, moved well and didn't feel restrictive. The belt loops are placed well to support attaching a gun belt to your pants belt (garrison belt) and wrap keepers around. The shirts are priced at $49.95 (3X & 4X are $54.95) while the pants are all $54.95. Comparing that to the contemporary market those are good prices and I imagine, as you see these make their way into wholesaler and distributor stock the prices will be even a bit better.
Ultimately, I was quite pleased with them and will be setting them up for uniform use in the near future (adding name patches, sewing in badge holes, etc.) If you're in the market for BDUs in this color, I can recommend these.
