What sets it apart?

Angler’s insight:

One of my biggest beefs with any outdoor clothing is clinginess; either legs and sleeves that are cut too narrow for my liking, or material that’s prone to bunching and gathering. Under Armor has avoided this nicely with a pair of pants that moves with you. Also, I don’t mind zip-off pants, as this can be a convenient option on hot days, but I have to admit, I like the smooth, zipper-less feel of the Fish Hunter Cargo Pants’ design. I’m also a fan of pocket knives, but the reach for keys, wallets, my mini recorder, etc., can create awkward bumping. Here, UA eliminates the hassle with a dedicated knife pocket.
