To start with, I ordered them online, and put my p.o. box for shipping address and found out after they were shipped, that they cannot deliver to a p.o. box. Then they lost my order and decided to send the package to some random persons house. Then, after contacting the shipper to get a replacent pair ordered, apparently their computers were down, so they couldn't process the new order right then, it actuyalmost took a week before they could put it in the ssytem. Finally they were shipped and four days from that time I received them only to find that they shipped me the wrong color pants! Not only that but my least favorite of all options! That being said, the product is great, but now I'm stuck with pants I don't like.
I've had 5 pair for 3 years. Awesome! Comfortable,durable pants. Cellphone pocket and more Velcro secured pockets. And.... (I started keeping a count after awhile) 22 compliments from total strangers on cool pants. Adding more CAT gear to my wardrobe.
I have to say when I saw these at whistle workwear I was a bit surprised at the price for the technology that is put into these pants. The well placed pockets, the removable pouches, knee pad pockets and the water resistant fabric are key elements of these great work pants. The friction fabric inside the beltline is also a nice touch. Personally for me the hammer loop is on the wrong side and I'd love to see zippers and snaps on the pouches rather than just snaps. And adding a knife pouch and button would make them comparable to the EU market pants. Other than that these are my go-to pants when I do work around the house. I have a number of EU market brands that I wear to work but these will be a great backup just in case... I'll likely by a couple more pairs. Well done CAT!
While waiting and waiting and waiting for Carhartt to get their knee pads in stock I came across the cat pants. One reviewer stated he will never go back to carhartt. I have to agree we have a small farm and race dirt bikes. I am always fixing something but these pants are the most comfortable knee pad pants I have ever owned. I prefer the waterproof pants for their stretch fabric but both these and the regular knee pad pants are awesome.
