These Jeans Stopped an Angry Rodent
on December 13, 2012
jeans were very long, very stiff (although if you're using htem for work, this is what you want) and the lining was very thin- incredibly thin- I was not impressed with the lining at all. I have some carhartt fleece lined jeans without the double front leg material such as these jeans have, and hte lining in those fleece lined jeans is at least twice as thick as the lining in these double front jeans is- although, even with my other carhartt jeans, the fleece was not as thick in those jeans as some I've had in the past, either- but the fleece in my other jeans is at least adequate.
These double front jeans were also more than an inch too long compared with my other jeans of the same ordered length. While these are the typical Carhart 'wear like iron' jeans with reinforced front leggings, just keep in mind that this 'wear like iron' toughness also translates into 'feels like iron' and 'weighs like iron' and 'is capable of defecting direct strikes from a Samurai Sword'" (not really, but they are a rough jean- they will soften some when worn and washed about a billion times, but until then just remember that you're buying these jeans more for toughness than for comfort. These jeans felt like they could withstand an attack by an angry beaver, or samurai sword, but I doubt they'd stand up to an angry wife or girlfriend who just found out that you lied about what happened to the last of the rocky roads ice cream (like she was going to beleive that you actually defrosted the freezer for her and accidently lost the icecream in the process--- yeah sure). Anyways- buy these if you can't afford a kevlar vest or pants, they will offer adequate protection agaisnt all things sharp and pointy- Buy these if you never want to see your feet again (being that they are so long), buy htese if you are a rattlesnake wrangler- however, if you're looking for comfortable, thickly lined jeans, you might want to look elsewhere. I am givign htem 4 Stars though because if you need tough work jeans, or tough field jeans to protect agaisnt thorns, briars and such, and you are resigned to havign jeans that aren't as comfortable as most jeans, then these jeans will work nicely and likely last a very long time. This is not what I was looking for in a jean, so I returned them- They were also too long, but the waist seemed to be the right size-
