Okay, we know you think cargo pants aren't cool or trendy, but this list of best cargo pant brands will totally change your perspective on the lots-of-pockets thing. Seriously! Just check it out!

Gone are the days of just khaki or camo! Now you can now get slim-fit and tailored cargo pants in aqua, poppy, and practically any other color you could want. And for you purists, the standard khaki and cargo prints are still there. Except now they're more "catwalk" than "big cat hunting." (Get it? Yeah, we know...)

Over the past few years, the cargo pant has had a serious makeover. Designer brands like Ralph Lauren, Hudson Jeans, and Elizabeth and James have created awesome and fashionable cargo style pants for men and women. For those looking for a more traditional approach, no worries! The North Face and Eddie Bauer are on this list too. Don't see a brand that needs to be included? Feel free to add it! 

So before you write off cargo pants, take look at our list of the best cargo pants brands. Upvote the brand that's best convinced you to rock your own pair!
