The 042 Cargos 2.0 is a collaborative response between REINDEE LUSION & UNIDEN. 

Through intense research & customer feedback, we created the 2.0 version of the best selling 042 Steven Cargos. 

What's New?

The 042 2.0 introduces Fidlock magnetic buckles for easy and quick attachments for the support straps.

The support straps now also have a quick release clip to remove the straps faster than ever.

The new Shadow Grid fabric is not only water repellent with 3M Scotchgard technology, but is also breathable and 50% more silent when moving. 

Upon close inspection, you will notice a subtle grid pattern on the 042 Cargos 2.0.

And for the first time ever, we introduce a magnetic cargo pocket. The left cargo pocket is secured with two hidden magnets to securely store your goods. 

The right cargo pocket features upgraded ballistic material on the split mag pouches. This allows for abrasion resistance and additional durability. 

Zipper hardware has also been upgraded with YKK auto locking zippers at the left cargo pocket. The two back pockets now include invisible zippers to secure your goods.

A strong focus in this collaboration was improving the durability of the 042 model. We reinforced the crotch, pockets, and crotch zipper with double stitching to make sure you can move at your full potential.

Fantastic wear, only a tad too small for me

The pants are amazing and truly great quality, the only downfall is that I'm 170cm 80kg and the fit isn't as loose as I'd hoped it to be

The extra pockets give a lot of extra space to store what you need and the overall fit is great on the 042 cargos.

Best Intro Techwear Pants

If you're looking to see if a bigger, plus size, huskier guy can get into techwear, I gotchu. Very breathable compared to the 099, but also more tighter on the waist. I am a husky guy (5'7" 230lbs) and with an XL on the 099 it was snug with the adjustable straps but an XL on the 042 Cargos 2.0 it is not as snug, more tighter at the waist. Overall if available and you are more on the size 38, you will not be able to wear these at XL, XXL would be the best bet. Note that it's a slim fit to wear at waist 38. So my verdict for if a plus guy can get into techwear: only if you're sized 38 and not gaining size in the waist area. Otherwise, the 042 Cargos 2.0 is my new favorite from the three I own now (009 and the 041 Steven Cargos) due to the breathability, the leg carry straps, quick to access pockets, and slim look and feel.

Wipl Not Regret It

I just recently bought a pair of these pants and man do I love them. I'm 5,10 and I went with the Medium size and they Fit wonderful! They fit comfortably but still have enough play to them so I can Squat down and pick something up without worrying about them ripping. I highly recommend these to anybody that was sitting on the fence, yes it’s a high price point but you will not regret it!!!
