Been amazed at the beating these pants have already taken from general tree care, to rain days and ground clearing in the woods through heavy thorns. My last 2 pairs of pants of another brand both ripped the first time in harsh work conditions and these just laughed at them. Have smacked my thigh with a silky handsaw and there wasn't even the slightest mark and I was scared to look assuming I cut them. Also very nice the fabric doesn't just soak up moisture when it rains. Spent 8 hours in rain and mist in cool tempatures and felt dry and warm all day long.
My only regret is not buying this brand sooner.
