These pants are very comfortable and move well, no tightness throughout the day bending down and up. When they get wet they dry quickly, faster than jeans. I love the hammer loop on the side of one leg!

A decent addition to the Dungaree line
Overall the pants are very comfortable, easy to break in, and are true to size. The material has a bigger weave compared to the other d. styles and has the usual triple stiching. In the time I have worn them the pants seem pretty durable, though only time will tell in the end. They are of a lighter weight of material (9oz vs 12oz) so I am interested to see if they will wear through in certain spots faster. I really like the extra work pockets on the sides of the legs and have found them very useful for holding my cellphone and iPod, which is a key selling point for me.
The fit is not exactly what I had hoped for. In comparison to the long standing Double work front dungarees, they have a much better fit. I have a pair of the double fronts and hardly ever wear them because they are very boxy. These canvas Dungarees are better fitted but are still a little boxy in the lower leg. But there is one Dungaree style of pants that trumps all. If I had to choose one pair of pants to wear for the rest of my life it would be the Slim Fit double front Dungaree pants, which were released on a retail only base and in a very limited quantity earlier this year. I would have bought 3 or 4 pairs on the spot if they hadn't been so limited. The slim fit is so comfortable and stylish at the same time. The double front added durability and style at the same time. I was hoping they would bring them back in the fall as a regular item but I settled for this style as it seemed closest to the slim fits. We will see how they hold up over time.
