    Delboybully Electrician's Arms

    I have been wearing scruffs work trousers. They have the additional 'flappy' pockets and knee pads holders where the knee pad slots in from the top.
    The problem is the scruffs trousers dont last very well. On one pair the stitching for a pocket has come apart and also the knee pad pocket wears out too quick.

    My wholesalers has some by another make which I can't remember who but at 60 quid a pair.

    Anyone got any recommendations

    Snickers flex for me. Most comfortable trousers I've had and if they last as long as the normal snickers you will get years out of them.

    High upfront cost but not expensive when you work out your yearly cost.

    I have tuff stuff ones, and recently got snickers. Definitely prefer the snickers, though 3x the price, they feel comfier, the pockets are better shaped, and the way the knee pads go in is a better design.

    £9.99 cargo pants from ebay for me. they wear out, they get binned. a pair usually lasts me 3-4 months and they don't weigh me down.

    I've got one SITE heavy pair that keep falling down low even with a belt - must be my slender hips! I prefer no flappies but a tool belt/pouch instead.

    Snickers rough wear, had a pair for two years now and still going strong. They also allow the floorlayers knee pads, so I'm good on my knees(cheeky).

    Snickers are the ones my wholesalers wants 60 quid for. If they last well I might try a pair

    There are many types in the snickers range.

    Look at snickers direct.

    Snickers rough work are good heavy duty loads of pockets some zipped, bit heavy though. Have just had some 3/4 snickers flexi trousers which are a lot lighter but less pockets

    all this techno stuff about a bloody pair of strides. just go for what is comfortable, but make sure you buy the ones that come with 2 legs, unless you are long john silver.
