The Long Molecule Combat Black 50005 is another very popular model. It has got a rather classic cut, but still a bit baggy, like cargo pants are supposed to be.
Model Name / ID
Combat / 50005
heavy 100% cotton
8 (+1 mini), no flaps on front pockets
traditional buttons, inside waist-band (all around)
9 pockets in total:
2 front pockets + 1 mini pocket
2 pockets on the back with flaps and buttons
2 deep side pockets with zippers
2 big cargo pockets beneath, also with flaps and buttons
A convenient waistband-lace on the inside helps to easily adjust the pants to one’s personal belly circumference – you actually don’t need a belt.
The legs ends also have snaps / press buttons, so you can tighten the pants a little bit, ether to fit in high boots or prevent small animals or insects crawling up your legs.
Like most Molecule pants, these carbon black trousers have big cargo pockets. The material / fabric is a durable 100% heavy cotton, solid and soundly processed.
Sizes / measurements:
Standard sizes like S, M, L, XL can vary around the world! Please use our given dimensions to check and compare the sizes before your order.
(Best take a fitting pair of pants from your wardrobe, lay it flat on the floor and compare…)

Other distributors named this model “classic cargo pants”, “ankle busters”, or else. The original Molecule manufacturer in Bangkok just gave it a 5-digit number: 50005, so if you compare or look for models / prices on different websites, just look for the number, not the names.
