Propper BDU shorts come with six pockets, four of which have button flaps. The 4" waistband is adjustable with four bar tacks. These shorts also feature fused pocket flaps, drain holes in the Bellows pockets and felled inseams, outseams and seat seams. This short is made from a lighter weight cotton cloth in a ripstop weave that breathes well and is initially durable. Consistent with other cotton fabrics, the color will fade quickly, and over time the cotton fibers will lose their strength under industrial wear and laundering. If color integrity is an important end-user expectation, please do not choose this cloth.
