Cargo shorts are making a comeback in a big way, fitting in with a "gorpcore" trend that focuses on utility. To celebrate National Park Week, Jack Link's is adding jerky to the gorp — which stands for good ol' raisins and peanuts — by creating limited-edition cargo shorts suitable for stashing meat snacks. The Jargo (jerkified cargo) Shorts feature an astounding 20 pockets custom-fit to hikers' favorite meat snacks for the trails.

"Name a snack better suited to trail walks than jerky and beef sticks; I'll wait," said Tracy Fleischhacker Quigley, senior brand director, Jack Link's. "In all seriousness, we're excited to celebrate the official kick off to national park season with a pair of shorts that solves the conundrum of where to store an abundance of protein snacks while taking in the great outdoors."

The ultra-limited run of Jargo Shorts will be available to purchase on the Jack Link's website for $63, nodding to the number of sites with "National Park" in the name, starting at noon Central Time on April 30 as National Park Week comes to a close. The shorts come equipped with a summer supply of Jack Link's meat snacks and a National Parks annual pass.

To further honor these treasured lands, Jack Link's is making a $10,000 contribution to the National Parks Conservation Association, whose mission is to protect and enhance America's National Park System for present and future generations.
