"These are excellent trousers with more pockets and spaces for tools, screws, mobile, hammer etc than you could imagine. They're extremely tough too, with double stitching almost everywhere and also provision for knee pads that are in the right place too!!! BUT they could be better if there was some elastication in the waist. You could argue to buy big and wear a belt. You'll probably need to wear a belt too if you fill alll of the pockets. Would certainly recommend them for longevity alone!"
