These pants feel great out of the box. Washed before wearing and they are about as wrinkle free as it gets. Very nice looking pants and super comfortable. Zipper pocket in the back...I dunno. I mean, if you want access to your wallet or whatever, who's going to fight the zipper to keep taking their wallet out? Not me. If I'm out in public where I'm concerned about the safety of my wallet, I use a front pocket wallet. I'm sure some will find that more useful than I did. The phone pocket hidden in the front-right pocket...I could do without it. It took me so long to get my iPhone 11 to go in there, that I'll just never use it for that. It took me equally as long to get the phone back out, but all that aside, these pants are really good for the price. It's about as much as I would ever plan to spend on pants, but these will be good ones for a long time. Thanks!
