Black Vintage Paratrooper Cargo Shorts

The Black Vintage Paratrooper Cargo Shorts are a modern take on a timeless classic. Cargo pants have been popular since they were first produced and these cargo shorts capture the look and feel in a more comfortable short style. These shorts have a vintage appearance but are actually a newly made pair of shorts by Rothco, a company well known for military style clothing.

Rothco 5650 Tactical Shorts, Dark Tiger Stripe
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I ordered these and they fit as advertised. My previous Rothco shorts fit fine as long as I wear one layer underneath. I ordered these as I am on new prescription glasses and want a clear front. I can get two pairs for one. My son is a painter and is covered in toxic substances and I need shorts I can easily remove before I mess them up. I love my paint rollers and they are awesome with stainless handles but are a total pain in the *** to wash. These shorts look like I am on to something cool. The big cargo short has some limited leg room for 44's with a good 12 in front.

Great quality shorts
Review by Keepshooting Customer
Well, these came quickly and I can say they are quality. These fit great and have become my favorite shorts. I am 6 foot 200lbs so you could say I know what fits. I recommend them.

Wow....Amazing shorts!!!
Review by Keepshooting Customer
The Rothco Shorts fit amazing. I am an xl 5'11" , 240lbs , was between xl and xxl....I got the XXL's, and the quality of the shorts are very amazing...Sturdy, stiff pocket material...Great shorts!!! Highly recommended!!! Update 12/20/13 After a year, I finally decided to buy the Black paratrooper shorts in black (sold on this page)...My husband loves them, even though I thought I'd bought him a similar brand and similar pair of shorts....He loves these so much that I bought him another 2 pairs from two different stores (other then these, both are Rothco) , one black , the other one navy....After owning a dozen pair, he's finally come to me asking for a more comfortable material and a larger variety....So this pair, bought as a Christmas gift, is definitely something he likes, and I'm pretty sure you will too!!! Update: 11/20/15....Was so sad to find out that some company from India is now manufacturing these shorts.... They feel cheaper and thinner....To be continued. UPDATE 12/12/16 ....It's so heartbreaking to find out, a Chinese company, bought by an Indian company, called Wrangler...They stopped making these Rothco shorts...Totally lost it!!! No way I'm buying Chinese knockoffs!!!!!! My mistake!!!!! UPDATE: It was not a Chinese product, It was an Indian company...So stupid me....Bought these and another paratrooper style for $26 on Amazon...This company must be run by Indian government...NO BRAND ELEMENT AT ALL!!! NO

The quality of workmanship seems quite adequate
Review by Keepshooting Customer
The material used is thick and the overall design seems pretty well constructed, at least to my limited experience in that category of clothing. My teen-age grandson, to whom I am giving the gift, likes them a lot. He is not used to such large cargo pockets. The quality of workmanship seems quite adequate, but it will be a little difficult for him to wear the belt loops since they are fairly small in size and, since he wears a fairly snug belt when wearing other garments, it will be a challenge for him to find one that will fit.

A little tough, a lot rugged
Review by Keepshooting Customer
The pocket btw the legs isn't that big, it was bigger in the picture, but still a good pair of cargo shorts. You will look intimidating to folks, they remind me of the shorts rappers wore in early 2000s and most rap still dress like that. These are for the older crowd, people who like cargo pockets in a classic design, but for the younger generation who grew up seeing modern hipsters and youth wear I wouldn't recommend this, this is not for a young daring a** look, this is very timeless in terms of design. They fit great but run a little tough on me, but if you don't mind the a rough feeling fabric that can only be broken in, these shorts are for you. They're tough, I love them, so you should try them out, and also the red ones are the same but have metal buttons. Very comfortable to me, great quality, well made, durable. Love the heavy duty fabric, if I had one problem with the shorts it would be the fabric, they don't breath well, but for the most part the feel comfortable, don't worry, I wouldn't give it 5 stars if it wasn't the case. Overall good shorts

I ordered the Rothco Pro Challenge Shorts in Tiger Stripe ...
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I ordered the Rothco Pro Challenge Shorts in Tiger Stripe and they are fantastic. They are extremely comfortable and breathable. I have been wearing them to the gun range and working in the yard and I would say they are superior to my cut-off Levi's jean shorts that I was using before. The pockets on the shorts hold everything I carry in my cargo pants pockets and they are more comfortable than the Rothco BDU shorts I have been using for many years. I am looking forward to ordering more of these. 5-Stars for a good quality short that looks great. If you like military wear and/or the tiger stripe design, you'll love these shorts. The sizing chart is accurate. 5-Stars. I have ordered 2 sets of shorts and 2 sets of socks from Amazon and every item was as expected. No need to guess about the product - they are just as the image and specs say they are. I have already referred 2 of my closest shooting buddies to these shorts and they have both ordered a pair. You will like them.

They look great
Review by Keepshooting Customer
I'm 6ft tall and they go to my mid calf. The small is too small and the medium fits perfectly. These have pockets for my knees. So there are pockets for 2 sets of everything but it's a vintage style design. They are really nice looking. The material is nice too and seems durable enough. If you are buying them for summer or warmer weather the material is thicker and stiffer than what you would want but they would still work great. These shorts look good and have the correct waist fitment, don't know why the other negative reviews are negative. But don't take my word for it... Try em for yourself.
