I have worn these pants everyday for yrs in the tan color option. My work requires a tan pant and the 12 oz canvas are far to warm in my work conditions. These double front pants last forever and are comfortable. I am very sad to see the only color options you are choosing to provide are dark.
These pants fit great and seem to last longer than other brands. The right hand side pocket works great as a cell phone pocket. These are the only pants I wear to work as the hold up to my work requiments. I'm always having to crawl, climb or twist my way into tight spaces, and these pants hold up. Would recomend to anyone that "works" for a living.
My other work pants are the duck double-front dungarees, of course! But, these lighter-weight, yet still very durable, pants are perfect for working outside in hot weather. I am a wildlife biologist and work outside about 6 months out of the year conducting wildlife surveys. I would be too hot and sweaty in duck, yet these pants protect my legs from brush and other outdoor hazards. They are so comfortable that I even started wearing them on recreational backpacking trips...
I am pretty hard on pants, and these are the only pants that can stand the beating I give them. Cutting thorny brush, nailing down floor, stacking hay for three months has NOT killed these pants. They RULE!!!
The carhart double front pants are the best. My husband is so hard on clothing and these pants actually last with him. Not only are they durable but they actually saved his leg one day while using the chainsaw. The chainsaw only cut through the top layer of fabric leaving the bottom layer safe. Thanks Carhart. We will continue to purchase their products. I highly recommend Carhart to those that are looking for a very durable line of clothing.
These are BY FAR the best pants I've ever used. They are very comfortable, last for years, and are a visual statement as to what kind of worker you are! I've got a couple pairs that have lasted since I was in high school (4 years ago). I've found that the spots just above the top seam of the second layer tends to wear out before anything else, but that could be largely in part to me having keys in my pocket a lot. Also, just another example of the toughness of these pants, I ended up bouncing a running chainsaw off my leg when cutting up some timber... luckily I had these on! They saved me a trip to the hospital! Thanks for making a GREAT product!
I wear these pants everyday when I'm towing cars for the military police and have had no problems with them ripping or snagging like other pairs of jeans I have worn. I will definetley be purchasing more of these for the rest of the work I have to do everyday. Would recommend these to anyone working outside to purchase for their everday use.
hands down best jeans on the market ...i will only wear carhartt jeans.. carhartt jeans jeans are the longest wearing of all the work jeans i have ever tested.. i work construction,gardening,landscaping and i have two young boys so i have all authority to say that these jeans do hold up to the demands of a very full life....long lasting and comfortable are what i look for and carhartt has both of these very essential factors in a huge selection of styles and colors to choose from. so go out and get yourself some and see for your self if these jeans do not perform the way a true work jean should.. really every thing from jeans to shorts to shirts to jackets carhartt is the way to go.. even my children are going to grow up wearing carhartt brand jeans... my only question is when will there be carhartt shoes???
Great pants. So much lighter than the other styles, but they have got to come up with some more colors. There were originally two colors when they came out and then went to one. I don't know what type of seller this is for them but if it's a great seller, adding a couple colors would be great. I'd never buy another pair of pants. In fact all I wear is Carhartt shirts and pants.
This is my fifth pair of this style of pant. All have been solid work pants. The only complaint I have on this order is that after wearing them a few times I was realizing that the pants were not fitting the same as the rest. I found out that even though the exterior tags identified the pants as a 36x34 the interior tag identified them as a 38x34. I guess I will try to shrink them in the wash. Word of advice, double check all the tags when you receive an internet order.
These pants are great. Anyone who slips on a pair will feel protected immediately. I have pairs that are 4 years old and pairs that are brand new. I swear by these pants, they are tough as nails. I climb tree's to cut all day, the chap option is great for that. And the pants can take a beating, The double knee is worth the extra dollars. Trust me, buy these. They will be your companion for years to come
Working as a carpenter for over 20 years I have worn a number of different brands of jeans. I never tried Carhartt's brand of jeans till about 5 years ago. I have always had my insulated bibs, but never tried the jeans. I would go through other brands pretty quickly on a jobsite. Another brand I usually bought would only last about a month and the knees would go or I would get em caught on a guset and bye bye. These double front jeans by Carhartt last me 4 times as long, at the least. I used to think the price was to high, but I actually save money because of the longevity. I will only buy these jeans for work now.
These pants are virtually indestructable and they go anywhere. I bought them for my husband, and he wears them to all his work related activities, from jobsite walkthroughs to Pre-Con meetings with government bigwigs. No matter where he is on the job, he feels comfortable and appropriately dressed at all times!
I have wore the 12 oz. double front for years and still do in cooler weather. These 7.5 oz. are ideal for working in the summer heat of the Southern Plains. Carhartt's double fronts, 2" belt-loops, broad choice of sizes and canvas weights make it the number one company for me, and frankly, the double fronts in black are classy and usually my choice for formal occasions.
I'm a geologist that does field work in the desert southwest. I have to bust through all kinds of thorny brush and cactus, then grapple with ledges and boulders of rough limestone and sandstone. After 10 years of heavy abuse, I FINALLY wore out my two pairs of double-front pants and look forward to my next pairs. But beyond their toughness, these pants are loose enough to allow good ventilation in the desert heat, so I never felt like I was wearing armor (a major draw-back to some others pants I've tried). I just can't praise these pants enough.
where is the Carhartt quality? Having worn Carhartts for the last 35 years as a railroader, I am disgusted with the Quailty of the new Carhartt gear. At one time it took several washings to break-in a pair of pants! Now thier built to cater to the sissy's who wear them as a fashion statement. CArhartt, go back to your roots and make workwear for workers! JMHO
I'll agree with some of the other long time patrons of carharrt work wear, the quality has now slipped significantly. While the style and fit remain the carharrt signature, the new lighter weight double front work pant (the backbone of carharrt in my humble opinion) is inferior to the old style heavier weight pant. I'm a steel fabricator and also use my pants for rock climbing. I have always loved my carharrt double front work pants, for their fit, style and DURABILITY!! The latter of which has now degraded. Bad move carharrt. Rest assured if I find another company that offers your old style pant in the old weight, I'll be switching. All of those raving about the new pants obviously have not worn the old ones. The old weight was a true tradesman's work pant.
I am a locksmith and bought these with the intent of using the double front for knee pad inserts. The pants work great with the inserts, they look great on and wash well. However, I have had these pants for less than 6 months and the "double front" has already torn. They looked great in the beginning, but now they've been reduced to "working on the car" pants.
I agree with a previous reviewer, the new pants don't have the same feel I first fell in love with. My old canvas pants feel like they weigh twice as much as the new ones and while the new ones may be made with the same quality, the weight and feel of the old canvas pants was what made Carhartts so great and distinctive. I currently rotate about 5 different pairs of canvas pants-1 pair original canvas carpenter, 1 pair original double front and 3 pair of the new canvas pant, the difference between the old and the new is significant. While I will certainly keep wearing my new ones, I can assure you any old style I can find I will snatch up without hesitation.
These are my haystacking pants of choice. Hay can be very prickily and when you are stacking 200+ bales a day and dragging each bale across your legs it gets rather uncomfortable in inferior pants. These pants keep all the hay out and look good doing it. I love the black ones because the bronze rivets really stand out and look sharp.
I bought these pants because I had bought three pair when I was working as a production welder and absolutely loved the ones I had before. When these showed up I have to say quite disappointed they are very thin compared to my old pairs and nowhere near the ruggedness of the old ones I will not be able to work in these without ruining them. Bring back the heavy duty quality of these pants...
