I purchased 2 pair of these pants almost 5 years ago and they are just as comfortable now as they were on day one. I am still alternating both pair and they are just starting to show wear. The wear is starting to show in the crotch from friction but it has taken them 5 years to get that way. Great for the price considering how long they've lasted. I work for 2 different fire departments both of which run Fire/EMS/Rescue calls and are both busy stations. These pants have really held up to any challenge and without a doubt when I order the next pair I will be buying this brand again.
