Prometheus Design Werx – Odyssey Cargo Short 5050RS

Prometheus Design Werx’s Odyssey Cargo Short returns for this Spring/Summer in an updated fabric and fit. A feature rich, purpose driven, utility design, using tried and true USA MILSPEC 50/50 cotton/nylon ripstop fabric. Design for Adventure. Made in the USA. Built for remote, mysterious and dangerous places. Each feature and detail serves a purpose. Their industrial work wear grade construction methods use heavy duty nylon thread, triple needle stitching on major seams, and more bar-tacks to reinforce stress points than probably any other short being made today. These are best in class, cargo type field shorts with smartly designed functional details for the field, wilderness, expeditions, overlanding and camping.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“These cargo shorts have their DNA as our pants version. Updating our cargo shorts to the 5050 NYCO improves their durability, while adding slightly more heft to the style, but still well suited and comfortable in warm to hot field conditions. The fit has also been updated to match our pants so it’s a 1 to 1 match for sizing in the waist. The even and odd waist sizes allow our users a greater range of how they wish to wear our shorts. The Odyssey Cargo Short is an apex apparel style and uses best in class US production quality. The highest single cost component in the production of this short, is skilled US labor. These Odyssey Cargo Pants are built with 20 years of performance apparel design experience behind them. Longtime followers of our design ethos have been in some of the world’s most wild and dangerous places and require apparel and goods that can be relied on. We were uncompromising in the building these shorts. By all accounts they are overbuilt, but we know our most perceptive customers appreciate this aspect. Our core customers are men of capability, detail, confidence, and discriminating taste. There are numerous other options available on the market from other domestic to offshore manufacturers, but if a discriminating user is looking for a top tier US made cargo short using US materials with smartly designed, practical features, this is a product from our brand that stands out and we are again proud to offer. These are utility shorts favored by a core group for the field, for adventure, for expeditions and chaotic travel. Every single component, fabric and piece of hardware in these shorts is custom made to meet our requirements and specifications.”
