Great work pants, great value, pockets are a bit random.

I've been buying my Carhartt work pants from STP for years, as Carhartt makes the best & STP has the best value/selection/customer service. This is my first time with the ripstop variety, and they are comfortable overall, run true to size, and despite being 2nds I was only able to find the flaw on one (doubled stitch, who cares). My only gripe is purely subjective: the placement/configuration of the pockets. Every pair of Carhartts had pockets placed in a way that made sense, and there was a pocket on the outside of the right thigh that was perfect for a cellphone. On these pants the thigh cargo pockets have small random sized pouches on the outside that seem like more of an afterthought as their utility is pretty limited, and the only one that will hold anything of decent size (like a phone) is towards the front of the leg, which feels awkward walking/sitting (it binds) and is just generally in harm's way. Great pants overall though.
