17th Stopped Pick-Pocket: French Train Station Stop

Dear Clothing Arts,

My wife and I were on a trip to southern France recently. It was my first trip wearing my new P3 pants. I kept my wallet & passport in the left cargo pocket (snap + buttons) and my iPhone in the right cargo pocket.

As we were boarding a train at a small station one stop beyond the main station at Nice, I felt a small tug at the left pocket. I instinctively slapped at the hand as I turned around to see a young woman and a male companion looking at me as if to say “How dare you foil our attempt to pick your pocket!”.

That one incident made the purchase price worth every penny. Beyond that, I have to say that the pants were very comfortable. I wore them every day and rinsed them out only once.
