Good pant, needs some tweaks
I'm a commercial & industrial electrician by trade. I've worn these pants for about a year. Here's my this thoughts:
+ The ripstop knees and cuffs on the legs are great: that's what wore out first on my double knee dungarees.
+ The top loading double knees for knee pads are genius, don't know why it took this long to figure out.
+ The utility pockets are well though out. Unless you're a southpaw, I suppose.
+ The snap attach utility pouch is great, but you may need a bit of customization depending on how you tool yourself out.
- The only color is . . . Black? Seriously?!? It's a hot (temperature) cool for outside work. And it fades. For $XX.xx, Carhartt should offer more options.
- They seem to shrink when washed?
- The mechanic's pockets are on the shallow side. As is the ticket pocket.
- The beltloops are tight on a leather Carhartt belt: you can't double up the belt tail after the buckle.
All in all, I'd buy them again. (I have four pair.) Is there a perfect pant for everyone? No. Is this a perfect pant for me? No. But, they are really good pants.
