Model Name / ID
Backpacker / 54002
resilient 100% cotton
6 (+1 mini), flaps on front pockets, all flaps with snap-buttons
short (out-) side waistband lace system
cool worn-out look, slightly smaller (!)
7 pockets in total:
2 front pockets with flap and snap / press button
2 pockets on the back with flap and snap / press button
2 big cargo pockets beneath at the thighs, also with flap and 2 snap / press buttons
1 secret mini pocket inside at the left hip
There are a couple of buttons outside and inside at the waist line, so you can actually attach suspenders (although Molecule does not produce nor provide those). Nevertheless there are also belt loops and an additional side-waistband-lace system to adjust and tighten the pants at the hips – you actually don’t need a belt.
The legs ends also have laces, so you can tie them up, e.g. to prevent small animals or insects crawling up your legs.
Some edges like those of the pocket-flaps are slightly napped to give these pants a modern cool worn-out look.
Like most Molecule pants, these carbon black trousers have big cargo pockets. The material / fabric is a durable 100% cotton, solid and soundly processed but slightly lighter than most other models.
This model also has internal straps (inside at the hips) for hanging.
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…)
