When you showed up at work and you didn't have any pants on? Who would have known it would turn into a dream come true, in these pants you have to look down to make sure you're not nekkid. These pants are so insanely comfortable it's like wearing your favorite sweats on the jobsite every day. I did manage to put one small tear in them early on, which worried me, but nothing since which has included some rugged days. Could have snagged on a nail or joist hanger climbing around framing which would have done that on any pants. Worst part about the tear is I was planning on dropping them to be repaired and picking up another pair to wear but they don't have any in my chubby size in stock right now.
The one suggestion I would make is if the pockets from the kneepads could be moved over to the inner seam on the leg(about 1 1/2") I think they would function much better. Currently, at least for me, I often have to manually shift the pads over to get them under my knee. I think they would line up under the knee better shifted over, if possible.
USA, and local for me, made is a huge plus. These guys are knocking it out of the park.
