    Ok this past summer I tried working in jeans and about the 4th week of working my inner thighs were burning so bad I had to hold my soda between my leggs to keep it cool.

    I tried some other pants but they were too thin and the rocks while weedeating tore up my shins. So what type of pants do you guys wear?:cry: :cry: lol

    I wear cheap cotton khaki's. Wal-mart has some fairly cheap ones as does Old Navy.

    I wear inexpensive jeans (old navy) and khaki shorts on hot summer days that don't involve a lot of heavy trimmer work.

    after the first week or so of wearing shorts, your legs become accustomed to getting pelted by rocks and stones. it hurts for a bit, but after awhile, you just get over it. i typically wear lightweight khaki pants though. some of our contracts state all employees must wear pants.
