Seriously though, the Cabelas do have nice deep pockets and the pants are well made. But it does sound like there are some other good options out there based on some of the replies to this thread.

I think this is one of those "Ford vs Chevy - Blonde vs Redhead" questions...... it's what YOU like best! Most of my pocket carry cargo pants are Tru-spec, because I like the bells and whistles of that brand. I have a couple of pairs of the 5.11 brand and they work good as well........ as do a pair of 20 dollar Wally mart pants. But it comes down to what fits YOU best....... not what we think. Consider Fit, Quality and Access to the weapon you are packing. Just my 2 cents......
[QUOTE=10thmtn;2358841]Well, I ordered some of the 5.11 shorts from LA Police Gear (they had a deal with free shipping, and free return shipping). They fit a bit better around the thighs than the Tru Spec, but...the rear pockets are so deep that my wallet unded up under my thighs when I sat. Not comfortable at all. To give you an idea how deep those rear pockets are - they can carry a two D-cell Mag light!.../QUOTE]
Personally, I moved to the LA PoliceGear brand 'Operator' pants and shorts. I've pulled off an M&P Shield in the pocket, so those might be worth looking at as well.
I've no problem with a P238 in that style of jeans with a 34" waist.
I haven't tried their cargo shorts but I wouldn't be surprised if they had some that had big pockets. My favorite camo pants for ground hog hunting are from BassPro and I've no problem with the P238 in the non-cargo pocket.

If I can put my hand in the front pocket just past my wrist I'm good to go for pocket carry.
All I have for shorts are cargo's
