    I can see what he means by dumpy that’s how my carhartts felt

    what do you guys mean when you say dumpy?

    Meaning like droopy or bulky.

    Yes this

    It does look like Bjornklader makes some nice pants – but boy the name thing is confusing to me. I know it is totally different but at first glance it looks really similar and kinda messes with my mind.

    I got lined Carhartts last year. The waist was ok but the thigh area was massive ! I sent them back.

    Totally agree on that. What’s the stick with that anyways?

    I went up the the Lazy Piggs house today and work on siding. I gave the Blakladers to @jjp I got for him.

    I’m wearing Bjornkladers as we speak. They’re awesome. I have 3 pairs. The khakis, black, and gray, all in the Jubilee line. I think the fit is great. Plenty of room, but without feeling dumpy like american cuts sometimes run. But they’re not tight, either. I don’t want to look like I’m about to party at a euro club. I think the carpenter aces are a tighter fit.

    As for the kneepads, I just have the $11 basic ones, and they’ve served me very well and have been durable so far. But, I’ve never had any knee problems or anything. They might not be adequate for your needs.

    @kurt@welkerhomes.com

    The ace are a different fit. I can’t explain it, but I think the ‘rise’ is a little shorter than an American cut pant. I keep feeling like I’m having to pull them up. But there is plenty of room in the thigh and ample room for long-johns under them. Maybe a bit tight in the seat (or maybe my ass is too big, IDK) For me the fit is better in the Bjornklader vs the Blaklader.
    bjorn = bear
    klader = clad (duh)
    Blak = ? black

    I was the same way when I first saw the names and went back and forth to make sure I was not looking at it wrong. They do make interesting clothing. I will have to try some. I really like the looks of their jackets also. Both companies jackets.

    In comparison to Duluth’s fire hose line, which of these three companies take the cake in terms of value/quality?

    Lol. Well I guess that settles it. I don’t have anything Duluth but I think they try to make them out to be like blaklader quality.

    I just don’t like em. No hammer loop the pockets are vertical and I can’t hook my tape there. there’s no where to put the tape.

    Yep I can see why they are being returned. Duluth is easy on returns. Just call the toll free number and they’ll take care of it.

    I don’t actually like to use the Hammer loop on the blaklader pants for a hammer. Almost every time I bend down my leg hits the handle and it pops up and nearly comes out of the loop. I prefer to hook something on it like a tape.

    @Nyx I had this issue with the hammer loop also. It happened to me quite often when climbing up onto the roof and almost losing the hammer. I just take it out of the loop when I do any climbing now. When I’m standing in one spot working it helps quite a bit though.

    I hope they hold up. I just got my first pair today! My carharts suck. Just not fitting right and I blow out the crotches in 6 months.

    I typically leave the hammer on my belt so that shouldn’t be an issue.

    Yeah, I wonder if it’s just a matter of the loop being to far to the rear of the leg instead of to the side.

    I think it was just the style. I’m thinkin the firehose pants could be good.
