    There’s a heat wave on right now. If you work outside stop by Walmart after work and pick you up a pair of these pants

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Wrangler-Men-s-Outdoor-Comfort-Flex-Cargo-Pant/706520129

    They are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn in my life. I’m an electrician so I do a lot of crouching, squatting and climbing all day. These pants are made with a little spandex in them so they’re stretchy but durable as hell. And they clean up good too. After I started wearing them I just can’t wear jeans anymore. They feel too heavy and constricting.

    These would make great hiking or fishing pants or just everyday use. Bottom line is they are great for hot weather because they are super light but heavy duty enough for work.

    Buy them! You’ll be glad you did

    I have the grey ones, but fleece lined. Picked them up last winter.

    I like the fabric and have other versions including shorts made of the same fabric.

    For those not familiar, these pants have very narrow legs—skin tight unless you have skinny legs.

    I agree. These are comfortable but could use a little more room in the thighs. The fleece lined ones seem to be cut the same, but with a fleece lining. Those I returned as I’d like a little more airspace to maximize the effectiveness of the fleece.

    I really wish they weren’t slim. I ordered two pairs directly from Wrangler this year. They were literally form fitting. There was no space between the fabric and my thigh. A friend ordered from Wrangler at the same time. He couldn’t even get them up his thigh. We both ordered our usual waist and length sizes. I tried a larger waist size at Walmart. They were still disproportionately tight in the thigh. I’ll check them out again someday to see if maybe they were just cut differently for awhile.

    After reading so many good things on here about these pants I went to Wally World to try them out, and I found the same thing @hlydon is talking about. They were pretty much painted on. In fairness, I have a hard time buying pants period because I have fairly thick thighs, but these were extra-special tight. Like, fart and you'll blow your boots of kinda tight.
