As you may recall, I recently reviewed two of my all-time favorite travel jackets – both made by SCOTTeVEST. Towards the very end of that post, I found myself daydreaming about the Margaux Cargaux Travel Pants. The amazing people over at SCOTTeVEST agreed to send me a pair of the pants to review on my site. I was super excited to own my third (so far) SCOTTeVEST product and to get my hands on these amazing travel pants!

The BasicsSCOTTeVEST - Best Travel Pants

The Margaux Cargaux Travel Pants come in three colors: Black, Olive, and Gray and sizes range from XS-XXL. I am a US size 10 and the large fit me perfectly. Also, if you are a little on the short side (I’m 5’4″), there are adjustable drawstrings that you can use to keep the pants from dragging the floor. They also include an adjustable drawstring at the waist, so that you can tighten/loosen them as needed! The pants are mid-weight, wrinkle-resistant, and machine washable.

These travel pants have 11 freggin pockets; including 2 back pockets, 2 zippered handwarmer pockets, 2 regular handwarmer pockets, 2 cargo pockets, 2 zippered side seam pockets, and a welt pocket. There’s plenty of room to hold your sunglasses, keys, wallet, mobile phone, passport, boarding passes, chapstick – I could go on and on.

They are specifically designed to not look big and bulky when they are loaded up. Now you can you store all of the things without looking and feeling weighed down.

My Review

Yep, I love em! Simple as that. I knew that they were going to become my favorite pair of pants shortly after trying them on. Not only did they fit perfectly, they looked pretty darned good too! I specifically remember the first time my parents saw me wearing the pants, and that they both said they were the absolute best looking pair of pants they’ve seen me wear in a long time.

Over the past month, I’ve fully tested these pants out. I took a 3 week trip to Texas, and these were the only pants I brought with me. They were the perfect pants to wear on my flights to and from Texas, and I was exceedingly happy that I was able to store my airport necessities within easy reach. In addition, I took a road trip and comfortably wore these pants the entire time. Finally, other than the travel days, I wore the pants 2-3x a week and washed them regularly. They still look good-as-new and haven’t lost a bit of color or comfort through all the washings.

I knew that my TX trip would be the prime opportunity to test out these travel pants and they exceeded my expectations! They were the perfect weight for this trip, although they might be a touch too heavy for super hot and humid days (my only criticism). It has been hovering around 75F/24C, however,  and I have been perfectly comfortable wearing them out and about.

I could keep going on and on about how much I love my pants, but you really have to find out for yourself. I have a black pair and am hoping to add the olive and gray pairs to my wardrobe!


The Margaux Cargaux Travel pants are only for women, but SCOTTeVEST has 3 options for men: Flex Cargo Pants, Hidden Cargo Pants, and Convertible Travel Pants.

I absolutely love every SCOTTeVEST product I own, especially these travel pants, and hope to add to my collection soon.
