These soft shell pants are designed to perform. The four-way stretch nylon/spandex blended fabric bonded to hydrophobic polyester fleece moves with the wearer and stretches with every motion. The fabric protects against wind, water, and abrasion. The crotch gusset and articulated knees enhance mobility without adding extra seams or bulk. The belt loops are designed with the fighter in mind, keeping the belt and all of its attached goods in place. Four cargo pockets, two on the thighs and two on the calf, allow extra storage wherever needed. Knife pockets are sewn onto both thigh cargo pockets for easy access. Staggered Velcro® closures on these pockets make it so the whole pocket doesn’t have to be opened to get to the knife. The angle on the thigh pockets rolls the stored goods forward, so they are always at hand level. Zippered hems make it simple to pull these pants on over boots, and gripper tape at the hem keeps the pants down and tight around the ankle where they should be.
