I need my jeans to be durable, comfortable, and warm. I know I'm not the only one either. I put my jeans through a lot and I expect a lot. These jeans have out-performed others in the three categories I listed above. I have used so-called work jeans/pants from known brands but these Lee jeans have shown me that their fabric is superior. The fabric on these Lee jeans doesn't thin or pill as quickly as other brands. I believe this is partially due to the heavyweight denim and the quality of the denim. I live in Upstate New York and it is really cold up here in the winter. The heavy-weight denim keeps me warm on cold days and nights. These jeans are comfortable as well. The fabric is not abrasive (also important in the cold unless you wear long underwear). I would trade comfort for durability any day if I could only have one though. Activites these jeans are regularly used for: Hiking, camping, fishing, work (landscaping in cooler months, warehouse), and anything else I happen to get into when I have a pair on! These jeans also look good even though this is not as important to me. I can wear them in the field or put on a button up shirt or polo shirt with a pair that is not dirty and wear it to a party or get-together. Classic jean style. Lee doesn't spread themselves thin. All they do is make fabric garments and they do so well. To the customer: you won't be disappointed if you're looking for what I'm looking for in your jeans. To LEE: Don't ever cut quality on these jeans like other manufacturers sometimes do. If you keep making quality jeans, I'll buy your products for life!!! Please also continue making these jeans with 7 belt loops. I know the pictures on the site don't show it but that's what the last 3 pairs of my store-bought LEEs have had.
I ordered these in December and still haven't received them. This site is the most user un-friendly site on the internet. No where to contact anyone except to post a review. Stay far far away!!!
