I am looking for a pair of "BDU shorts"/"cargo shorts". Currently I consider products from Tru-Spec, Propper and Rothco. Since design is the same at every shop my question is about the quality of clothing (in terms of craftsmanship, materials, comfort, durability) from the aformentioned vendors - which one is worth buying? Are there any actual differences? How are the poly/cotton blends working in hot weather compared to 100% cotton?

No "capri-pants" nor any other gay-related items of clothing allowed in this thread.

Rothco is shit. Propper and Tru-spec aren't awful but some of their stuff can be stiff as cardboard.

How about just making some cut-offs? Hem up the bottom where you want.

Get yourself a pair of patagonia stand-up canvas shorts. They'll last foreve rand come with a lifetime guarantee. They work great in the heat and have more than enough storage in the huge front and back pockets.

I'm currently wearing some truspec, with a zippered fly. I've had them for a few years now with regular weekend wear and they're still good as new. Pretty great pants, would buy again.

Poly-cotton is great, it's still quite durable, while feeling like summer shorts. 100% cotton is closer to wearing jeans, it's heavier, stiffer, and takes longer to dry.
