    I’ve had several pairs over the last few years and love them. However the last couple pair seemed to wear out pretty quick compared to some of my older ones. They also changed the knee pads pocket which makes it harder to get the pads in, especially the red backs. All in all I still like them.

    No matter how good you think you are you there is always someone that is better, or can teach you something.

    I recently bought a pair of Duluth flex firehouse work pants, and love them! Wear them 3 or 4 days in a row, hate to put on jeans for work now. I’ve been eyeing the Blaklader, and have been wondering if the cloth is similar to these from Duluth?

    I think the x1900 are probably the toughest pants blaklader makes. I’ve had a couple pairs and they held up great. Maybe @utopia78 knows of a tougher pair though

    I was able to try on some Blaklader pants X1600 (grey/black) at the WOC.
    I gotta say those are some heavy duty and thick pants. no wonder they last “a decade” 😀
    I definitely know now what size I need but I am curious if those pants will be to warm during the summer times here in the desert.
    I might just go with some short pants which I wear 11month of the year.

    They make a three quarter length pant that still allows having knee pads. I have a pair, and they are my favorite.

    @madman_us,
    They definitely are a heavy pant, I struggle to wear mine in the summer but still do. As Kevin mention, maybe take a look at the 3/4 pant to wear in your climate.

    Not sure if I would like a X1600 3/4 pants. But thanks for mentioning that, I guess I’ll go with the short pants – temps are brutal here 😀
    The short pants weather actually starts in a week or two….temps are going back up.

    I use these pants most of the time, the full length pants are just too hot.

    I’m not sure if these Blaklader x1500 Shorts are new but I haven’t seen them before. I just remember the 3/4 length pirate style that offers a little more leg protection.

    “Our popular X1500 series is also available as shorts. The comfortable fit and lots of practical pocket solutions make these work shorts a great choice in warm weather. The shorts have two free nail pockets in CORDURA® with tool loops that can be worn inside the trousers. Leg pocket with telephone pocket in water-resistant material”.

    I redeemed for those last summer Chris. Great shorts with lots of pockets. One thing I have found is that they fit tighter for the same size as their other pants I have of theirs. You might want to get a size larger. I also wished they had them in another colour than black. For the summer, black is the worst colour in the sun.

    @Doobie Thanks for the feedback on them and sizing, not sure how I missed them. Totally agree that other colors are needed as the black do get rather hot. Even the grey/black mix would have been more sensible.

    My blaklader pants started really falling apart. I couldn’t get another pair that I wanted right away so I just ended up picking up some carhartt pants instead. Definitely missing the blakladers already

    I have the x1600 that I used for the winter and it’s perfect. The pockets, comfort, and how damned tough they are. But summer here in MA can be a little too humid and I don’t think the heavy cotton is going to do well.

    So I ordered myself another pair on some European website, got the 1525 Lightweight Craftsman Trouser. They’re okay. Not as many pockets as the x1600 but damn do the polyester/cotton blend breathe well.

    Now I feel like I need another pair, so I was looking at the Bantam. Anyone of you who has a pair can tell me of the floppy pockets come with utility loops? It’s kind of a deal breaker for me. Some websites show the pants with the loops, some don’t.

    I’m pretty sure @utopia78 is the blaklader expert here

    You’re referring to these pants?

    All those pockets come in handy I’m sure.

    The big floppy front pockets and having built in knee pads are awesome imo. Just nuts about my Blakläders!

    Yeap. That’s the one. But the reviews I see on YouTube do not have utility loops like the one you linked. As with half of the pictures on online stores

    @mommozz
    I have about a half a dozen pairs of the Bantam pants. All but the oldest pair has the loops on the right pocket. This is NOT the case with the Bantam shorts though…for some reason, the navy pairs don’t have the loops…not sure why. Perhaps I’m getting sent old stock, but the tan shorts come with the loops.

    Thanks. Ordering one right now. Hope they don’t send me an old one.
