Molecule produces short cargo pants in 3 different lengths: 3/4 or calf-length, knee-length and short, of which we offer 5 different models in total: 45056 Globetrotter – 3/4 or calf-length. 50006 Travelstar – 3/4 or calf-length. 50007 Cruiser – knee-length. 54001 Explorer – short. 55001 Rambler – short (light ripstop) (Skip the text!)
The main characteristics and differences are:
These trousers are a little low cut at the waist (in comparison to 50005) and rather baggy / quite wide in the legs.
They have 8 pockets, 6 of them with flaps and press buttons, the 2 side-pockets underneath the big cargo pockets have a zipper.
Press buttons and zippers are all made of hard-plastic.
We offer this long cargo pants model in 4 colors: safari green, carbon black, grey and light khaki cream.
(The appropriate model in long is the 45019 “Venture”.)
50006 “Travelstar” and 50007 “Cruiser”
These 2 models are nearly identical except that the latter is shorter and has no leg laces at the legs ends but press buttons instead.
They derive from the classic cargo pants model 50005 (Combat), and if compared to the 45056 (Globetrotter) above, they sit well on the hips like a vintage jeans. There is sufficient leg-space for all kind of activity but they are a bit tighter in the legs than the 45056.
They have 8 pockets + a mini pocket. Only the 2 rear pockets and the big cargo pockets have flaps with buttons. The 2 side pockets underneath the cargo pockets have a zipper. Buttons and zippers are all made of iron.
We offer both models in the following colors: safari green, carbon black and grey. The short 50007 (Cruiser) model also in woodland camo color.
(The appropriate model in long is the 50005 “Combat”.)
This short cargo pants model is quite similar to 50007 (Cruiser) except for the missing side zip-pockets and the napped edges (of 54001).
They have 6 pockets. The 2 rear pockets and the big cargo pockets have flaps with buttons.
Buttons and zippers are all made of iron.
We offer this short model in the following colors: safari green, carbon black and light khaki cream.
(The appropriate model in long is the 54002 “Backpacker”.)
55001 “Rambler” (Light Ripstop)
This short model is made of a special cotton ripstop fabric, which is considerably thinner and lighter but very resilient. Be careful with the sizes though, it turns out to be a bit smaller than the usual Molecule models! It has got 8 pockets in total, the 2 backpockets and the cargo pockets in both sides have flaps with bottons, 2 further deep pockets on the legs have a zipper.
We currently offer this short cargo ripstop pants model only in safari green.
(The appropriate model in long is the 55002 “Voyager”.)
