Not every pair of BDU pants have to be the most expensive or made to last you a decade. I've selected some cheap options for when you just want throw something on to go to the paintball field or do chores. Consider used BDU pants as there's quite a few of them out there, either because they no longer fit the owner or from military surplus. Their loss is your gain!
