Skating with phones, wallets, keys and other hard objects in pockets will cause rapid wear from grip tape and pavement. When you start a session, empty your pockets! While these are designed with skating in mind, no refunds or exchanges will be made for gear that is damaged from doing so (just like your skateboard), they were not designed to be wear proof and there is no guarantee against crashes resulting in holes. They are designed with reinforcement so that crashes resulting in holes wont immediately get down to your skin, but with certain variables like speed, weight, type of crash and what you crash on, theres just nothing you can do about it, that's life. Anything determined to be a manufacturer defect will be addressed differently.

I have had two pairs of these--the jeans and the red canvas. The jeans are no doubt a little more durable, but they also breath less. For everyday wear, I prefer the canvas. For cold weather, I'd pick the jeans. Both are exceptional and will last you far longer than you average pair of pants. A few good falls of tearing through denim/canvas and you've still got plenty of Cordura on your butt to keep from shredding the buns.
The pants are a big upgrade from previous seasons on aesthetics. I wear them in public proudly ;) Also awesome for rock and tree climbing, slackline, anything where you would want enhanced flexibility without sacrificing durability...also good for straight chillin.

As casual longboarder for the past 6 years I've gone through dozens of skate pants because they either get torn up or they stop feeling comfortable. These pants are durable and the crotch is stretchy and very breathable. Pants also allow a wide range of motion with the most amount of protection. Worth it!

These pants are the bee's knees! Speaking of knees, they provide superior pretection in several key areas while reataining great mobility. If you like to skate fast and dont like road rash i would highly recommend copping a pair. Plus they look really rad in all the various colors.

This is the best version yet. I mainly love everything about the pants but my favorite part is the butt. The back pockets are perfect.

These pants do an excellent job of protecting your bread and butter when you skate. The only complaint i have is that theyre pretty chokey and could be a little more breathable in my opinion. All in all they fit great, offer great protection, and keep you road rash free so you can get the ladies!
