The best work trousers are comfortable, have a good fit, are functional and durable, but also have a modern and pleasant design.
At construction works, trousers are not merely pieces of clothing that provide safety, but also help you keep warm and temporarily attach tools when working outdoors. It is important that the trousers are waterproof and breathable when working outdoors, especially in the Estonian climate.
If you spend a lot of time on the knees, for example installing a floor or fixing pipes, you should wear knee pads or trousers with reinforced knees that provide comfort during work and enable to stay on your knees for a longer period of time.
When designing the trousers, particular attention has been paid to the electricians and welders who need trousers that are comfortable and enable to move freely, but are also fire resistant, so the trousers won’t catch fire, for example due to a welding spark.
It is also good to consider whether the trousers should have holster pockets. What about stretch fabric, does it provide ventilation and are the critical parts reinforced? Is there a special button for the sleeve of a construction knife? Attachment for a hammer holder? Or jointed knee areas?
During work you have to move, squat and bow a lot, which is why it is important for the trousers to bear that kind of load and enable free movement.
What material is best for work trousers?
I wish the answer was that simple! High quality work trousers should both be suitable for harsh working conditions, but also meet the actual needs of the wearer.
In that case we would recommend a particularly strong nylon material Cordura. Cordura material is great for the parts that are intensively worn – holster pockets, knees and cuffs of work trousers.

In addition to the functionality of work trousers, are comfort and fashion also important?
Would you like to work in trousers that don’t stretch, have no ventilation and are missing jointed knee areas? While doing a lot of active work in a hot indoor space? Doesn’t sound very tempting, does it?
This is why you cannot ignore the functionality, comfort, but also a modern and pleasant design of the work trousers.
What else should you think about when selecting work trousers?

Work trousers are made from different fabrics, the most common are cotton, cotton and polyester, but also polyamide and elastane. These are all suitable, depending on the job at hand, the desired level of comfort and the price one is ready to pay.
