    Default Looking for some Pants...

    Hey guys, I'm trying to find some new uniform pants. I've been thinking of getting Pro Tuff's because the full time firefighters wear them, but I want to know a few thing like are they comfortable and do they last for good amount of time. Thanks for the help!

    Default Uniform Pants

    Are you looking for a traditional style or BDU?

    Not being a smart-aleck (this time), but have you asked these questions to the paid guys?
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    I wear blue pants.


    I could really care less who makes my pants. As long as they fit and are somewhat comfortable, I could care less.

    Some guys go out and get the ones with the knee pads and the nomex space fabric or whatever. I just wear pants.

    Whenever possible, I don't.




    I wear shorts. Try wearing long, dark pants in this Florida heat. Then fight a fire. Thank God for shorts

    Yes I have asked some of them and they say they like. Also, not trying to be a butt here, did you not stop to think that I was looking for a second opinion?

    The ones I'm looking at they call the glove pocket pants or something like that

    You never know. I was going to ask the same question but he beat me to it.

    Of course I thought that. A second opinion is when you've already asked one real fireman and you turn around to ask another. If they work well for the guys that actually do work on your crew, then they should last you forever.

    Whenever possible, I try to find a hottie that doesn't. By the way, I was over at the wifes apartment a few minutes ago, and her pool was full of hotties. It's like damn, why do I even have a girlfriend sometimes?

    It always seems to work out that way

    If you have the chance to go to college, but are ever doubtful, just think of a college town with a ton of hotties by every pool at every apartment complex in the town.

    Yup...

    whfdExplorer: I'd recommend going to a local uniform store, and seeing what they have to say, and maybe trying some on. I don't know that climate or type of activities you'd use the pants for, so those are factors in the decision to keep in mind.

    If you're going to be doing more manual labor type things, go with a more comfortable, rugged pair. If it's for parades, in my personal opinion, go for the nicest looking pair.

    etc. etc. etc.

    For what little I do in duty pants, I prefer the Dickies from Wal-mart with the BDU pockets on the sides. They are pretty rugged and are pretty comfortable. Remember, you don't always have to fork out the big bucks for something you're only going to use every now and then.
