Belgium OD M88 Field Pants
The Belgian Army has a long history of distinction in both war and peace time in Europe and Belgian colonies. With close cooperation with countries like France and Germany, the Belgians take great pride in ensuring their armed forces are able to work with first rate fighting forces. One of the most important aspects of this close cooperation is to ensure that the Belgian Army provides their soldiers with top quality uniforms and field gear.
One example of the quality of Belgian Army gear would be these M88 Field Pants. The Belgian Army has fielded this style of field pants since 1988 and soldiers have praised the performance of them in the field. Like most Belgian military uniforms, they are made from a tough cotton blend material that is a very distinctive olive drab color. The features of these field pants show that the design was carefully planned and executed to give soldiers a pair of field pants that could be worn as stand alone pants or over pants when conditions warranted.
I wish they have more choices in sizes but I do recommend them if the sizes will work for you. I plan to put them on the dryer a couple of times to shrink it a little bit. This is ideal for working in the garage or in your yard.You can use it as an outer pants to protect your good pants inside.
Excellent overpant, if it'll fit you
Review byP Verified Buyer
These are really well made and the condition was apparently new (nothing to indicate any previous wear or washing). They are definitely overpants, the side slits are not pockets and the legs are baggy. but they come with a full set of suspender buttons, and also light webbing in the same locations for hook-type supenders. The downside is the Larges is no bigger than a 35 waist/34 inseam. If that, and the single leg and single rear pocket, works for you - these are great.

The quality of these pants is top-notch. The workmanship, quality of material, feel of the pant when its on is so much more than I expected. You can't go wrong with this purchase.
Uodate on Previous Review
Review byGrok Verified Buyer
These are an excellent item. The L size is definitely 36W, 32L. I did end up buying another half dozen or so and have been using them as work pants (not over pants) for a few months now. They take a few washings and wearings to break in, but are remaining durable even when they soften up. They do SHRINK a bit when being dried in the dryer. I'd guess maybe one size or so. But they've got a drawstring waist so that hasn't been a problem. The main thing I want to emphasize is that they work best (for me) with suspenders. There aren't any belt loops, and though you could use the drawstring, it's a little uncomfortable. If you are going to use them as overpants order them a size large. I'm told they look pretty good as well, for whatever that's worth. Probably the best deal I've gotten from KeepShooting.
THESE ARE OVERPANTS
Review byChris Verified Buyer
Had to put that title in bold in case you miss it in the description and in other reviews. I didn't realize when I ordered but was not disappointed when they arrived. Very tough feeling pants and make great winter pants for the price you cant go wrong.
Great Deal On A Solid Pair of Trousers
Review byVincent Verified Buyer
If you can fit into these, you cant go wrong here. Seems brand new, heavy duty materials and simple construction and very functional design. I received the size large. A bit big on me - 5'7", 150 pounds, 32" waist, 30 inch inseam - but they will work fine as over-pants and bit baggier trousers on their own. Waist tie will tighten them up to fit.
This is a great deal on a solid pair of trousers. If you can make these fit, you can't go wrong here!!!
High Quality Pants!
Review byBSIDEPC Verified Buyer
Belgium OD M88 Field Pants: These pants are top quality. Very well constructed, and the large cargo pocket is very useful, The rear pocket is big enough for a tri-fold wallet but not much else. Both pockets are button-up, as is the button-fly. The “draw string” is a high quality strap and long enough to tie tight. There are buttons and strips sewn into the inside of the waistband to be used with suspenders and the like. The side pockets are not pockets but rather, slits for you to stick your hands through to access the pockets in the pants you are wearing underneath. The pant legs are very roomy, and clearly these are designed to wear on top of another pair of pants. Note that the slits are well finished, and each has a inner flap so that your legs/underpants are not exposed even if the slits held open. The WAIST is the stated size, don’t expect to squeeze into these if you’re a size or two bigger. I’m a 38 and the Large is 36, and unfortunately, I could not fit into them. But that is not a fault of the pants, but a fault of me being overweight! So if you wear a size 36 comfortably you should be able to fit into the Large just fine. If you have to squeeze into a 36 now, you won’t be able to squeeze into these... That’s expected for military clothing--they don’t have much give--and these pants are no exception. For 2 bucks though it was well worth taking the chance! Hopefully Extra Large will become available at some point, and when/if they do, I’ll be back for more!
Review byDale Verified Buyer
I like sales and the Cyber Monday sale is great. I bought 3 pair and when I saw them I ordered 3 more. These pants are well made and strong material. Perfect for an outer covering for work or "rough" playing. I paid 1.99 for an item worth much more and as usual Keep Shooting does it again with another fantastic deal and high quality merchandise.
Excellent, Excellent Deal
Review byGrok Verified Buyer
Well made, good looking, and comfortable. I ordered 2, and am now planning on ordering 5 more. The L size is definitely 36W, 32L. They have inside buttons and loops to allow use of suspenders. I took them over to our local chain saw and outdoor equipment since I know they sell suspenders there. He was pretty impressed with the quality of these as well. I will probably use these as an outer layer work pant, with dark thermals or some other dark undergarment. They do have an excellent side cargo pocket, as well as a rear 'wallet' pocket. I may end up sewing the front slots closed on them. These would have been a good deal at the original price. At $2, they are a no brainer.
Review byPete Verified Buyer
At what came out to be about $5 each after shipping, these were a great buy. I wear a 38" waist and 32" inseam. The XL fit just right for wearing over other pants as they were intended, with room and adjustment to spare. The material is tough and durable and still comfortable to wear.
