Question What Kind of Pants do you wear?

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.

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

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.
