I needed some work/hard use khakis (non blue jeans anyway, they can be brown, loden, etc) and wanted to get the toughest, most bang for the buck.

So far the Wrangler Riggs and Duluth Firehose may be ok.

Anyone have any experience with the Riggs or Duluth pants?

Any other good/tough brands of khaki type pants to look at?

I wear Dickies every day and they stand up to all of the abuse I give them.

Fairly inexpensive too.

I've worn Mountain Khakis for work and they are tough. My older pairs are now my hunting pants and they are still going strong.

Look at the original mountain pant.

I've got a couple of firehouse pants from Duluth. They are awesome. Not exactly soft, but they will hold up to damn near anything, I've had a pair for at least a year and have yet to wear them out after fairly heavy use.Also they have a ton of pockets , and I think they have some kind of warranty never had to use it though.

I love every stitch of clothing I've ordered from Duluth.

I have 2 pair of the Riggs pants. They are great. Use them for everyday and also used them in a 4 day rifle course. I also like Carhartt double knee brown duck.

This , they're warranty is GOOD , wife just sent back 4 pair with some holes , I do alot of welding and other rough stuff , they sent out the new ones right away , except they discontinued one color , about 3 days later , I got a CHECK for the amount of a new pair, about $15.00 more than I had paid for the originals, probably 5+ years ago

I guess , it paid off for them , wife just ordered about $300.00 worth of stuff for Christmas gifts.

Not the cheapest stuff but it's made for people who do ACTIVE type jobs.

I was just getting ready to ask if they hold up to welding/grinding better than normal jeans.

Yes , and the warranty is good for ANY cause.
I actually felt bad about sending them in , I wear them 12+ hours a day 6 days a week.

I had a BAD fall 2 years ago on some broken concrete with rebar sticking out , tore the S%#T out my knee , not a mark on the pants , I was amazed.

In my experience; Duluth pants are way better than Carhartt or Mountain Khakis.
