Regular readers know that I am an Arborwear fan, especially their Ascender Pants which I have called the best all around outdoor pant on the market. And they absolutely are. However, I also like their Canopy Pants very much. They are light, cool, stretchy and extremely comfortable. Furthermore, I have said that the Original Tree Climber Pants are just like the Carhartt Double Front Work Dungarees only better.
Recently I was looking around their site and ordered a set of Arborwear Tech II Pants for Cooper. I have found another favorite pant from these tree people. They are not quite as technical as the Ascenders but the dual full size, angled cargo pockets are better and the fabric has a thicker tighter weave although they don’t have much stretch to them. These are nice looking pants that he could wear for pretty much anything from chasing thick cover quail to a casual night out with his buddies and I don’t think it is possible to wear them out.
Here is how the company describes them.
“It’s tough to take a bombproof pair of pants and make them better… But we did. The Tech II Pants are new and improved versions of our popular Tech Pants. We kept the same incredible 7 oz. nylon fabric and fit, so you are ok to continue your quest to wear these babies out (good luck with that, by the way). However, we contoured both the hand and cargo pockets for easy and ergonomic hand entry, lined the hand pockets with mesh for added breathability and added a Teflon® protector for oil and water resistance. You’re welcome.

If you are looking for a well made, highly durable set of medium weight utility pants you should give these serious consideration.
