I have 10 pairs of these pants from 3 years old to recent day (some of the others didn't make it through the grease and crotch tears). These are my go to pant when workings construction or hitting the trails with the kids. The reinforced knee is on point and the pockets are sturdy enough for drywall screws or apple slices. I definitely recommend these pants to all my friends and anyone willing to listen.
MK: If you get to reading the reviews here's what needs to change: Add some elastic or flexibility to the crotch, it tends to tear or limit you when making large vertical steps. Give an option for a more athletic cut, the bagginess of the pants from 2018 are just a little like the original MK pants and don't fit well in meetings or on a bike (the year before seemed to be tighter in the legs around the knee and boot. Give us a reinforced leather tab on the right pocket for our knives instead of the leather tag on the rear that's covered by the belt.
