    Combat trouser pockets?

    Guys,
    Just a shout out to ask if any of you have ever come across combat trousers from any nation that feature thigh/map pockets that are angled forwards as opposed to, for example, the British PCS uniform where they are angled backwards?

    Just did that Rip.Nice pieces but I think I didn't frame the question properly.Those NWU's seem to have the same style of pocket as the British PCS IE the top pocket flap is angled forwards to allow access when seated.What I was trying to ask is has anybody seen a combat trousers where the bottom of the pocket was angled forwards?IE the pocket entrance was at the back of the leg.

    Thread bump.The reason I ask is that the powers that be over here are planning to introduce a new style combat pants with just that very style of pocket.I think it looks ridiculous and so far i can't see their logic as no other Military I know of uses such a design. That's why i was hoping one of ye could prove me wrong.
