Carhartt Washed Duck Double Front Pants for Men
They've been making them like this for years so they must be perfect, right?.. Wrong. The double-front is a waste of material and money as they wear out right above the double-front reinforcement and then, after around 6 months of use, you suddenly find you have a 4" tear over your top of thigh rendering them useless. Why not take the double front up to the waist?! Also the thigh pockets are hopeless at retaining even basics like a 12" rule and a pencil when you sit down in them - every break time you have to pick your stuff up off the floor. The only reason I keep buying them is that easily-available, affordable alternatives are hard to find.

Great pants for welding and woodshop
I use these pants in both a welding shop and a woodshop and they have excelled in both environments. First, the material is very durable; I don't feel any of the heat generated by the sparks from my welds. Also, the material is extremely resistant to cuts and tears; in fact, I have yet to see any. The pants also have a ton of storage solutions; there's a tool/hammer loop which comes in very handy in the woodshop, and the right leg has a small pocket that's perfect for a ruler/ square (there's even one for a small cell phone).
Overall, I am very satisfied with these pants, and will definitely be ordering at least 2 or 3 more pairs

Have had 3 pairs of these pants for the past 3 years and I wear them almost daily. They are coming down to the end of their useful lives but I'm still using them. Sure they've got some holes and wear to them but nothing the sewing machine can't fix. I have been absolutely impressed by these pants, never had anything that lasted this long. They are definitely worth the extra bucks but if you look you can find them for a deal sometimes. Also the most comfortable pants I've ever worn. The only problem I've ever had with them is that they seem to wear holes on the corners of the rear pockets pretty quick. I've had that same problem with other carhartt pants too.

Cast Iron Pants
I've been wearing these pants for a year straight. Ive gotten my money's worth out of these and they still have life as long as you repair minor holes, etc. The chapped double knee make these pants all the stronger along with the rivets and 3 thread stitching. Also the side pockets are great to through vice grips or wrenches into when your working. The only thing I didn't like about the pants was the cut, they were too wide for me so I brought them in but in doing so they are my favorite jeans. Take that Levi's!
btw- Theres a reason they say Carhartt makes Cast Iron Clothing... I put em to the test!
