Best Pant, Hands Down
I have been loyally wearing Carhartts for about 10 years now, but for my past birthday my wife bought me a pair of Alpine Utilities...and I have switched allegiances. These are more durable, better looking, and more practical than any Carhartts or other brands of pants that I have ever used. I love the cell-phone pocket, and the Action Gusset - they are a very practical pant all around. I realize that some people get concerned about price, but c'mon...these pants will outlast any other pair for pants by years, and seeing as you can find great deals on a number of online retailers, there is no reason not to choose these over another brand. The best, most rugged/durable pant I have ever owned. Hands down.
