What type of pants?

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.

You mow in shorts? You gotta be a viking LOL. My leggs would be killing me.

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.
