Impressed out of the box
This is an initial review, I just received these and they seem great out of the box.
The fit is good going a size up, they aren't too baggy in the legs, and the pocket layout is very well thought out.
I have gone through several pairs of the basic service pants, and was very excited to see these and try them out with the better pocket layout and the knee pad pockets.
My only gripe is that the pockets are too short for me to use the redback knee pads safely, when inserted into the top sleeve my knee goes over the top of the pad when I bend down, so either the sleeve should be about an inch higher or the pad needs to be an inch longer.
Instead of using them I was able to cut some 1/2" neoprene at 6" x 9" and fit them in pretty snug, which will work fine for now.
All in all, very impressed with these for the price, much lighter than the heavier cotton versions, very close to the basic service pants in how they fit and their weight.
I'll update this review if needed after working in them for awhile, just incase there are any issues.
