The cuffs are adjustable with cord and stay in place. A feature that I missed, and haven’t used yet, is integrated tie-down loops in the cuffs to attach to boots. Two wide, deep front pockets, two rear pockets, and a zippered right thigh pocket help keep your stuff organized. This pant will literally go everywhere with you.
