ROTTEN FABRIC in <6 months
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 28 X 32
The fabric collects lint unlike any clothing item I have ever owned. The only thing I know that collects lint better is a commercial lint roller. But more critically, after less than 6 months of owning the pants, they literally fell apart. First, a large hole formed near a pocket, where the fabric just disintegrated. Next, a pocket corner seam split. Further, the black paint of the waist button rapidly wore off. Ultimately, despite washing these pants in gentle cycle along with my woolen clothing and air-drying them, in under 6 months the fabric was completely rotten, such that a hole could be torn into the fabric with moderate pressure of a thumb, and the fabric could easily be shredded with a mild strength grip-and-pull. By far the worst experience I have ever had with any product marketed to "outdoor" enthusiasts.
