Hey guys I am looking for some pants ( I have seen them b4) that is sort of loose fitting and has vents out of a mesh type material down the side with of course a solid non see through material covering up the mesh.:walking:

Or just in general what sort of pants are the most comfortable in the summer time for you?
Khaki's is my color by choice because of company shirts.

Rip-Stop BDU's are great. Leg pockets are great for small pieces of trash, while you are mowing. Just don't forget to take out the trash at the end of the day. My wife was not thrilled when the washer and dryer were full of little papers!

dickies are a bit thick, I tend to have the bad luck of finding every briar bush around and the thick jeans save me some serious scars:laugh:

I have some BDU's I like them. They are comfortable to say the least.
I bought some pants off the internet about 6 years ago they lasted about 3 years but they were some of the best pants. They were a little baggy but had draw strings at bottom so nothing could craw or get up the leg. And they had a draw at the top as well so they were easy to take on and off.

Try some arborwear pants! I think their tech pants would be right up your ally. You don't find much of a harder industry on pants than tree work.

Wildass Jeans with the cuffs cut off, or Carhart Shorts.

No point in looking like a Lost Frat boy while working.

I get the khaki BDU's as well....I personally don't like the rip stop...others swear by them....but either way these are great pants to get. They last long and are very comfortable...

Dark colored, but lightweight/breathable pants, the dark color hides all the grass and grease.

I have several different types of dickies both pants and shorts...some are the thicker duck cloth others are a nice soft cotton...I even have a pair or two of the type that have the nylon on them(they wash the best) working through the three season I like to have a variety of pants to wear b/c of temperature ranges and the different tasks required with the various jobs I take on....if I am just mowing on a ZTR shorts are fine but if I don't have a helper trimming and edging I will wear pants to avoid the nics in my shins etc...During leaf season I have two pairs of LLBean insulated kahkis that I love

BDU's all the way! I have several pairs... black (12 years old and only a couple of small holes) and khaki. They work great for trash, as mentioned earlier, but also for holding folding saws, trashbags, etc. Very versatile!! They are also cool during summer and warm enough for winter. Plus, they don't stick to you as they are loose fitting. Even look great with a polo shirt!

I love this song. I have had it in my head since I saw it. some of these kids should actually be arrested. I saw one kid about 16 in a McD play area with his mama - anyway he was changing his shirt and his "pants on the ground" were basically totally exposing himself to the kids on the play area - totally .... Sometime these kids can hardly walk - lookin like a fool. That dude has hit a home run and way to vent our frustration with this whole foolish movement. The goths, punks, etc - no problem but pants on the ground - whatever!

"Oh" this thread - Lee's Carpenters have a cell phone pocket - very cool. Also Georgia steel toe/water proof boot.

I wear long pants. I don't understand how some guys can do trimming with shorts on. It seems like you would get sandblasted.

never had a problem with that, yea you get scratched up a bit, but skin heals.

during the cooler months when one can't wear shorts, and pants are essential I just go with jeans. $10/pair from Walmart.

I like to wear shorts in the summer so I have a pair of bib overalls to slip on when doing edging and trimming. I buy them very large so they go on and off easily and use only one of the suspender straps to keep them up and my GF thinks they're sexy. They are thick enough to guard against most projectiles and I take them off to ride the mowers so I stay cooler.

It really gets hot here, so yes I take the time to change into my bibs to do trimming. Most of my accounts are in clusters so its not 7-10 time a day. I buy them really big so they are just hanging on me and the legs cover my shoes for the most part.
