There is a lot to like about Blaklader work pants. I first saw these at a Bosch tool event last year and I had never heard of this amazing brand from Sweden. I spoke to Marcus Carlberg the President of North America Blaklader and he said that most Americans are still relying on denim as their work pant of choice when in fact that is a very poor option. Modern day denim doesn’t have the durability that it once did and most workwear pants also offer much more functionality, which brings us to the Blaklader Brawny Work Pants.
I have not seen a more functional work pant on the market today and with their lifetime guarantee on seams you’ll never have to worry about blowing your pants out or having them tear apart.
The cotton canvas material at 12oz is extremely durable and but also very comfortable. And the reasons why you can trust the seams, they are Cordura reinforced and triple stitching.
The two stand out details include two utility pockets which serve as an on-board tool belt and when not in use they can be tucked into the front pockets. No more scrambling to find an apron or tool belt to manage your tools or hardware.
The Brawny also has two removable kneepad pockets which make tile or flooring jobs much easier on your joints and you won’t have to deal with a pad anymore.
Other features include:
Cordura lined back pockets
Bellowed front and back pockets
Pencil pocket and secure wallet pocket
Nylon hammer loop
Reinforced ruler pocket
Quality YKK zipper
Mobile phone pocket
Triple stitching on all major seams
This graphic is from Blaklader’s Facebook page and it shows all the reasons why these pants are great for camping which is an activity we do often around here and I can definitely see a reason for wearing these pants on our next trip.
