* 5 great pairs of cargo shorts for men

It’s officially time to restock your spring wardrobe. The first item on our shopping list? cargo shorts. Cargo pants were a must-have this past fall/winter, and the trend is continuing in the form of workwear inspired shorts this spring. Plus, the extra pockets come in handy for spring/summer activities like traveling, hitting the beach, or just running errands.
But not all cargo shorts fit the bill, and many designer options are overpriced. So to help, we rounded up some of our favorites that you can cop right now for less than $30.
1. Amazon Essentials Cargo Short
Amazon Essentials has some well-made, no-frills basics when you need something specific. These cargo shorts are one such item, boasting over 1,000 positive reviews and a great price tag of $18.
2. Dickies Loose Fit Cargo Short
In the past year Dickies has gone from classic workwear brand to cool kid essential. These simple black cargo shorts are a great way to rock the trendy brand with almost anything in your wardrobe.
3. Wrangler Premium Cargo Short
Wrangler is another workwear brand that has made its way into stylish guy’s closets recently. We like their cargo shorts because they’re super durable and showcase a simple, knee-length leg and relaxed fit.
4. Unionbay Cordova Cargo Short
These cargo shorts from Unionbay boast over 2,400 reviews and 4.5 stars for a reason: they’re flattering, well-made, and very reasonably priced.

For a slightly more statement-making style, try these camo cargo shorts. They feature a good camo pattern that’s classic and not too over-the-top, as well as a handy belt for a perfect fit.
