They're more comfy than regular jeans on the inside and feel similar to a nice pair of jeans on the outside. Pockets are all just like normal jeans. A bit sad that they only come in a dark blue which doesnt come out in the wash and a straight cut version. I'd prefer something more slim fit. They also don't breathe as well as regular jeans but that makes sense as these are about 2X thick as regular jeans at and below the knee because of sliding zones and armor pockets.
