Why should you shell out $85? A few reasons...
- The styling of these pants is modern and more fit than the original Tin Cloth Pants. They look and feel great around a campfire AND in the office on casual Friday.
- If you spend any amount of time outdoors you'll want a pair of go-to pants that will stand up to being snagged or caught up on branches, burrs, or bushes.
- Rain beads up and runs directly off with minimal to no absorption. I tested this before I even took them outdoors with a jar of water. Passing grade.
- The item description doesn't mention being stain-resistant, but I was able to wipe off, with a damp cloth, what I thought was a permanent charcoal stain from a burnt log.
