Lightweight work trousers recommendations please

Recommended Posts

 I have been using Craghopper Kiwi Classic for years but the quality gets worse and worse so thought I would ask you guys what else there is. This for general outdoor work but no protection is required. Nothing too thick and heavy like Dickies. Basically, something like the Craghoppers Kiwis used to be.

 

Thanks

Tog 24 trousers are nice, one downside is the mesh lined hand pockets ( I went for these after Crags went downhill a few years back).

Snickers do a nice light pair of non holster trousers as well. Slightly heavier material for summer wear though.

I bought a pair of Trojan tradesmens trousers from Arco for about £20. Good tough and well made and not overly heavy. They have various styles with pockets everywhere (which I don't like) to simple twin pocket designs.

Good gear for the price.

Whatever trousers I wear I always wear braces as well nowadays instead of a belt. So much more comfortable. I quite like bib and brace trousers as well.

I can’t recommend these trousers enough. Had them for two years now and wear them for everything outdoors when not in Pfanners.
They stretch, they block the wind (from the outside at least !), reinforced knees, good pockets and the cut is so comfy sometimes you have to double check you’ve actually remembered to put them on !!!

Levi 501’s, if I’m not wearing chainsaw trousers.
I buy them second hand off of eBay, comfy cool and fairly hard wearing
