Cargo pants are back, and the Spring 2019 runways confirmed they'll be around for a while, so it's time to get on board if you haven't already. (I mean, or don't. Do you!) Fortunately, there are more stylish options around today than the ones that populated middle schools and offices on casual Fridays in the '90s and early aughts.

I wasn't totally sold on this trend before I started working on this story, and now I have my eyes on a few pairs. Think of them as a more visually interesting, utilitarian update to your current favorite pant silhouettes, whether that's a high-waisted, straight-leg situation or something more skinny.

Below, we've rounded up 19 of the best cargo pants on the market right now in a variety of silhouettes and price points — so get to shopping and start thinking about all the cool things you can store in those extra pockets.
