I love these jeans, have worn out several pairs over the years and was ecstatic to find a supplier once again. The denim is reasonably tough, and the pockets are capacious, safely holding my keys and phone, plus the occasional tool. The fit is great, roomy for gardening, wood gathering, and other daily activities. The only change for the worse from my previous pairs is the narrower waistband, (about 1" rather than 1.25") which may not hold up as well as the old design. I am very, very, very glad to have been able to purchase these again, and probably should buy 1-2 more just to be sure of a supply.
