This could be the world's most advanced Long Shorts! These unique workshorts are the culmination of years of JOBMAN Workwear innovations, incorporating proven workwear concepts with new fabrics and designs for the most demanding work situations.

The JOBMAN Ultra brings several NEW features into workpants for the professional who needs the most from his work clothing. The most outstanding feature is the knees - which are made from a NEW material called ARMORTEX. This new material is a combination of polyamide and Kevlar. JOBMAN has long used polyamide in its workwear for reinforcing of key areas, and now Kevlar has been added on these pants. The result is the best protection available for your knees. The material is tear resistant, flexible, and slip resistant. Also, these knee pad pockets are bi-level, so you can position the knee pads* at the best point possible for your body style.

But, these shorts have so much more than just Kevlar knees. The Ultra has a big phone pocket on the hip, which will hold even the biggest smartphone. It also has a wide tool belt or tool holder velcro straps on each side, to use in attaching equipment or hardware pouches if needed. The thigh pocket has a zipper, so anything you put in there will stay there, no matter how active you may be during the workday.

On each side are "stiffened" hammer loops, so you can easily drop your hammer in. And, a heavy duty caribiner is sewn in on the front right for attaching tools, keys, or whatever if you need it.

NEW to this pair of shorts is a separate pocket for storing of the holster pockets, so if you are not using these hardware and tool holding pockets, you can tuck them out of sight. There are side pockets on these pants, so you can always have your normal pocket items in there, without the holster pockets getting in the way. Also new is webbing on the holster pockets, so you can tuck tools or smaller hardware on the outside of these pockets for easy reach when you need them.
The fit is superb on these shorts. The shorts have a new type fit in the waist, with a higher back, but with a lower front fit. Also, the knees have stitched areas in them to provide a pre-bent feel, so you never stress the fabric when you bend your knees.

All in all, these shorts are the best workshorts available, with superb quality, function, and durability - made for the most demanding professionals.

I live in these pants. Either working on the house or the boat, the big pockets with pen/tool storage and the integrated knee pads are the premium features IMO. The knee pads never bother you like strap on, and I always have the essential tools at finger tips. The material isn't even close to wearing out yet. May consider suspenders since you tend to load up the pockets and that causes continual belt tightening or going gansta look.

these shorts are a hit, I have to stop through out the day and tell folks where I got them; and not just people on the job site, but suits on the streets as well. Tough, but very comfortable, they run true to size. Very well thought out work shorts.

Make sure you buy the right inseam size
bought 4 of the wrong size (32 inseam (C52) instead of 30 (D96)). They are too long and the knee pad is too low even with the longest knee pads. I didn't know I made the mistake until I had worn them so I guess I am stuck with them. They are quality made, but I wish they would make the knee pads more curved around the knee so they don't rotate off to the side of the knee. Also, they need to make a size 28 inseam for shorter people in my opinion.
