Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit. Very comfortable. These are very comfortable as casual wear. The fit is excellent so it is also comfortable for wearing while hiking. It is stretchy enough to move about, but they are fitted enough to look good. The pockets are a good size, while being very inconspicuous, unlike some other cargos. Looking to get another pair in a different colour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylie and practical I first purchased the shorts and liked them so much I went back and bought these long pants. Great fit, extremely comfortable and water just beads off them. Have been wearing them constantly since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them, cargo pants without the bulk. Was looking for new Cargo Pants while traveling in NZ and found these. Brought a pair of the colour blue and loved them so much I went back the next day and grabbed a pair of the Green/Olive ones. I now have 2 pairs of Blue and a 2nd pair of the Olive on the way. They are perfect for traveling as well as everyday work attire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and great fit I'm really pleased with these pants. They're a comfortable slim fit with a little bit of stretch, although thankfully not enough to stretch out of shape. They're a stylish cut so can be worn in any situation. In terms of sizing, I'm about 186cm and slim and these are long enough not to leave my ankles in the cold. I normally wear trousers in the 32-34 range. With these Federate Cargos, I initially bought the S as my previous Federate trousers (size M) stretched and feel loose (and have a saggy butt). However, the Cargos don't have the same stretch and are also slimmer in the hips, so S was too small. I went up to the M and they're great. I need a belt, but the fit is spot on. I've got 2 of the 3 colours and would be adding the third if my size was available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and feel. Bought these primarily for golf and they're great with the stretch fabric. Realise that they are also going to be great for travelling with the thigh pockets on the front (top when sitting). Very comfortable and light.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought a pair prior to a tramp last week. Comfortable and dry, but the crotch ripped fairly early on when stepping up on a rock. Quite disappointing to rip on the first use. Look great touch

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, comfortable and secure Bought them primarily for the plane flight, for comfort and having enough pockets for passport etc. ended up wearing them for the entire trip due to the security of the zipped pockets. About to buy a 2nd pair..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for wearing everyday outfit I bought it for daily wear when I go outside without having to put on jeans. The extra blockers offer great utility

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cut This is the second pair i have bought. They are a perfect cut for a pair of pants. Not baggy or straight or tube legs, but a very good shaped leg cut. I wear them to work in the office and out in the bush. Just love em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Comfort The cargo pants were received as a gift last year and due to their versatility and comfort we decided to purchase two additional pants this year. Good for everyday wear as well as travel. Would recommend product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from i own 3 pairs as i want to take 2 pair on an overseas on a 6 week trip starting soon they look very smart and I like the zip pockets on the legs to put my cell phone and wallet in the other.so ideal for what I wanted. I tried the large on in the shop it fitted just but was too tight. I tried the xl on and it fitted perfectly. as I wanted to keep them good to go overseas I washed them had them shortened but didn't wear them much.,.at easter I had a week off and have wore them most days and they have stretched to the point where they are nearly falling off and hardly wearable. Nobody told me you have too buy them too tight as they will stretch with wear!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and Comfortable I am a tour guide at Cradle Mountain and bought a pair of these trousers 3 months ago. They are the best, being durable flexible and comfortable to wear. I now own another pair. Great product. Keep up the good work Kathmandu

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Wore these for the first time to climb Scafell Pike in -7 windchill and extreme winds and sleet. Held up great. Very wind and waterproof. Extremely light and flexible. Only wish they made them in black

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First pair fit perfect; second not... I am 6.2 and lean build, usually Kathmandu pants are not long enough. Two weeks ago I tried on the Fedarate Green LGE and they fitted perfectly; I brought them and am very happy. Seeing Kathmandu had member’s sale yesterday, I went and purchased Fedarate Tan LGE. Putting them on today, they are larger in the waist and thigh than the Green pair? I will keep them but will have to wear a belt; the Medium will be too short. I would recommend the pants but definitely try on the different colours of the same size to ensure they fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cargo pants on the market As I'm really tall NOT 5'6". These casual cargo's have such a nice slim fit while being super comfortable compared to all other cargo's I've ever had. My wife say's I look best with these pants and when going out smart casual she tells me to wear these rather than jeans or the like. I've bought all three colours and if there were more I'd get them too. Hope Kathmandu never delete this line.....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light, easy to wash Bought these for traveling, so far wearing them at a music festival in hot weather. They are light and have roomy pockets. The shape is not quite as advertised, the strangely curved zips causing the fabric to stand out on the thighs, but very functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Travel Pants I have now got four pairs of these, 2 blue, green and sandy colour, they are great for travelling, lightweight, comfortable on the plane, easy to care for wash and dry in about half an hour, water resistant, cool in summer and protect from elements when cold. They also double as a fairly trendy pair of smart casual pants. Pockets are safe and great for passports and wallets. Best clothes for travelling I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort Bought my second pair today. They are the coolest and most comfortable trousers I have worn for years . Ditto the equivalent shorts.
Date published: 2018-12-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable I am largeish around the middle and short in the leg. My wife altered them for me so that they now fit perfectly. I wear them everywhere I go because they are comfortable besides having deep pockets for the many things I carry. I would have preferred the cargo pockets to have been on the sides rather than the front, but I can live with that for their other excellent qualities.
