One weekend, you may be bushwhacking through thorny briars同时努力达到一个秘密鳟鱼孔。接下来，你可以在你的阁楼保温吹。令人惊讶的是，工作裤经常做的工作都很好。
When assessing work pants, we considered how well the pants do hard jobs while protecting the body. We also considered durability and how it relates to pricing, comfort, and overall construction.
Below, we profile some top products from mainstream brands Carhartt, Dickies, and Duluth Trading Company; outdoor brands like Patagonia and Mountain Khakis; technical brands like 5.11 Tactical; and boutique brands like 1620 Workwear and Topo Designs.
But we’re always keen to learn about other brands you love. Let us know in the comments below what your favorite work pants are and why. And, as always, we’ll update this article over the years as we put more pants to the test.
Across the board, I favored the pants that had a midthigh utility or cellphone pocket. My quip for most is that brands tend to place utility phone pockets on the right side. It would be nice to see a left-side phone carry pocket here and there. Even as a right-handed person, I like to use my phone with the left hand to leave my right hand free for other things. But we all have to make compromises.
After living and working in all of the pants below, my absolute favorites are those from 1620 Workwear. For me, the argument for these pants is they are a perfect fit: the modern cut, the waist, the legs, the length, and the feel. They easily transition from the workday to social gatherings without looking like bulky work pants.
Within the left-hand pocket is a coin pocket that’s too deep to dig coins out of — maybe it’s good for something else. All of 1620 Workwear’s pants include wide belt loops.vwin徳赢网GearJunkiecovered thesewhen they first launched in 2016.
这个店裤不硬,但是面料是好的,轻拍ht weave that also sheds spilled water, oil, and chemicals. The drape of the fabric and better stretch gives them a little looser feel, which is good for breathability in warmer environments. They have the same pockets as those mentioned above.
该se are better pants for those who may want to go from the office to the field or worksite. They look fairly professional yet have many attributes of a great work pant. They should also be a top choice of professionals like machinists who want to look snappy at work while having a tough pant with lots of pockets.
有了一个明显的领带上中西部地区，它需要在该地区生存的冬天韧性，德卢斯贸易公司有适当强硬的服装。其36个作风的裤子，我们检查了DuluthFlex Fire Hose Carpenter Pants。
8盎司的DuluthFlex消防水管棉帆布做的，a 3% spandex blend, these have a nice touch of stretch for comfort. The cut is a little dated but comfortable and relaxed without being baggy. The face fabric is smooth, which helps hold their stain- and water-resistant fabric finish. And the major pressure points are tacked with a metal rivet around which, in my experience with another brand, is where the fabric is prone to wear out.
我测试了几双，和松原始大小对确实很宽松 - 在宽松的侧面对我的口味有点。但是的放松配合Rugged Flex Rigby Double Front Pantturned out perfect.
该se are very comfortable pants made from 8-ounce fabric. They’re slightly lighter-weight compared to many in this test and composed of 98% cotton and 2% spandex canvas. The front hand pockets and rear pockets are pretty standard and a comfortable size. These pants have the only useful coin pocket of all the pants in this test because it’s not too deep to reach in with a thumb and forefinger to retrieve coins.

This outdoor recreation clothing giantgot into workwear in 2017。It released a full line of items to cover working men and women from head to toe. True to form, Patagonia Workwear draws on sustainable sources, which is somewhat reflected in the price. I tried two styles of the brand’s work pants.
该Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Double Kneeis an extremely comfortable pair of pants. The rear pockets are unique in that they swoop down from the beltline all the way to the outer seam, much like the front pockets.
该downsides are the hemp canvas absorbs water pretty readily, so they’re not great for wet, snowy, or spill-prone environments. Also, they lack any sort of midthigh utility pocket on either leg.
该y’re competitively priced considering being imported with a Fair Trade certification along with all the other great reasons Patagonia loyalists are usually ready to pay a bit more to support the brand.
该钢锻造牛仔pants are a little stiffer out of the box and have a roomier cut. They are not as comfortable as the Iron Forge Hemp Canvas pants. And they make a pretty major jump in price thanks to the brand using an 8% blend of Dyneema in the U.S.-grown organic cotton, dyeing them with natural indigo, and cutting and sewing them in the U.S.
Dyneema is marketed as light enough to float on water but 15 times stronger than steel, so they should be exceptionally durable. On the plus side, they have great pockets: deep drop-in front hip pockets, standard patch-style rear pockets (not as nice as the Iron Forge), a right-side utility thigh pocket, and a hammer loop/pocket on the left side.
迪基斯carries a huge range of styles and types of work pants including skinny, slim, regular, and relaxed. For this test, we landed on the brand’sFlex Regular Fit Straight Leg Tough Max Duck Carpenter Pants。
怀俄明州杰克逊的基础了，山卡其布认为有必要的裤子，可以在山上或市内牧场，但好看工作。它的32英寸腰围Alpine Utility Pant Relaxed Fitfeels more like a regular fit to me. But it’s still comfortable. There’s also a Slim Fit option.
该rear pockets are a standard straight-across patch style. The angled front hand pockets are pretty standard as well except for an extra “hidden” seam-line right-hand pocket.
该opening of this seam pocket is a little smaller than the regular hand pockets. But it tends to gap open. I found my right hand would wedge into this pocket instead of into the full-size standard hand pockets. I might get used to this minor annoyance over time.
该unique feature here is what Mountain Khakis calls the Mud Flap, a reinforced patch behind the heel. They are a little on the pricey side for imported pants.
As the company name suggests, most 5.11 pants are tactical in design. That means they carry guns and ammo well. But the昂船洲模型有一个非常干净的工作裤的样子。
Even though they don’t have that typical tactical look, 5.11 has still managed to include nine pockets, including two to fit an AR mag and my much-prized utility pocket on the right thigh that perfectly fits my phone.
该se are comfortable and lightweight pants. They are great for warmer weather, and 5.11 priced them reasonably for imported apparel.
我们测试的TrueWerk T2 WerkPant约6个月，并与他们进行了一贯印象深刻。在T2 WerkPant（$ 79），具有优异的口袋设计。大腿的口袋是一把刀完美的大小，而拉链口袋和开放的臀部口袋的组合给你足够的用来装载您的EDC齿轮选项。
Born in 2008 on Colorado’s Front Range, Topo Designs is based on the classic gear used by the founders when they were kids in the ‘80s. It makes a work pant from durable 12-ounce duck canvas cloth, with the double layer extending from the front pockets to just below the knee, where a gap allows inserting kneepads.
该se have a modern slim cut. Of all the pants I tested, they were the tightest. I also found them to be a little tight in the hips. While the pant legs were not quite “skinny-jean” tight, the lack of space around the hips compounded the snug feel of the whole pant.
