Can't say enough good things about these pants. I use them all summer long, both for building trail and backpacking in (I do a lot of bushwhacking). I've put pairs of these through amazing amounts of abuse, and they just take it. When you first get a new pair, they do feel a little bit like stepping into a canvas tent, but after you break them in they get super comfy. The reinforced crotch and knees are a life saver. I prefer the tan to the blue, I've found they seem to hold up better for some reason.
These are by far the best pair of pants that I currently own. I wear them pretty much all summer for work (building trail and backpacking) and they hold up great!. They incredibly comfortable and the fabric is very durable.The reinforced crotch and knees really do make a difference when digging in the dirt and rocks all day. They can be stiff at first, but after a few days of wear that will quickly go away. I would highly recommend these pants to anyone!
Had these pants for a bit over a year now. Pretty much the only pants I wear now because I am either wearing these or just rocking shorts. Amazing for working in, anything from metalwork to tree climbing to trail work. Also great for hiking and climbing where you need a more rugged pant. Not exactly a light weight option but far better than jeans, dickies or similar work pants.
Would and have bought them again and would recommend them to anyone. A++
These are the best work pants out there, whether your climbing tress or not. They hold up WAY better then both Carharts and Mountain Khakis. The tapered leg is the best part about them, if you're on the skinnier side both Carharts and Mountain Khakis look huge.
I own the Originals and a pair of the flannel lined originals which are great for the winter.
I wear these everyday for there intended use. They stand up to all day climbing, chainsaw dangling from my harness on the leg and the occasional barbed wire encounter. The upshot... way softer than Carharts and much more mobility. Be advised... these pants have tapered lower legs to prevent the material from bunching in the climbing gaff.
I have worn these since 2000 and finally begged them for a job! They are pre-washed 3 times which makes them soft and won't shrink! My favorite thing about them is they are tough as nails without being abrasive and the diamond gusset in the crotch is great mobility. Obviously, I am a fan.
These pants feel and look really tough. The fit is just ok, I feel like there is way too much fabric in the thighs and crotch. They have been fairly durable but they are showing more wear and tear than I expected in just a few months of ownership.
These pants are sick, nearly carhartt tough and with way more freedom of motion. The gusseted crotch is super convenient. Perfect for rock climbing on those days were pants are essential, or just kickin' back around town.
...would be awesome to see on backcountry. All the positive reviews of the men's pants are true of the women's as well. They are my favorite work, climbing and just all-around pants, without a doubt.
For how burly these are, they are so comfortable. The gusset on the inseam makes a huge difference from a traditional work pant . The fabric is much more cozy as well.
I love the material, I love the price but I just don't like the fit of these. They have a straight leg and a slight taper towards the bottom which is fine but there is just way too much excess material in the crotch/seat of the pants. I've had pants like these before which seem like the designer of the garmet didn't take into account the extra material a gusseted crotch adds to the overall diameter of the pants. The result is a rather un-aspiring, and a weird unflattering look to them. They remind me of Dickies how they are not supposed to be baggy per-say but they have a oversized and wide stiff look to them. To be honest they look like army pants or park ranger pants...
I am NOT a skinny jean type I just have skinnier legs and prefer a true straight leg/athletic type fit. These Arborwears don't have that. With a climbing harness there is just too much material bunched up.
