Comments about Propper Battle Rip Olive BDU Pants:
[...] I even received the item on my birthday. -YES! :o) This is definitely one of the best pairs of combat trousers one can get. Compared to many other fabrics, the trousers made by PROPPER are very well-constructed and durable, but also lightweight and comfortable. I was positive about a pair of BDU by PROPPER that made it through nearly 10 years of service and I was wearing them in action(hiking, camping, survival, fishing) quite often. But by now I really needed some backup;o).I chose the battle-rip version, because it is near to the genuine nylon/cotton rip-stop trousers worn by the army. The comfort of this trousers on a survival trip or hiking tour through the woods could not be better. As I already said, they are durable, but lightweight, the 65% poly/ 35% cotton ripstop drys very quickly and keeps you dry and of course they even look better than a pair of boring fashionable hiking shorts made by wolfskin or other expensive manufacturers.So my recommend is: if you are looking for quality and "the real deal" than you should choose a PROPPER one. One might pay a few dollars more than on other/cheaper BDUs, but the PROPPER will last for years.
