Through years of development Push Culture has created the ultimate pants for downhill skateboarding.
Designed for maximum durability, mobility and road rash prevention. Key areas are reinforced with Cordura, a fabric which is even more durable to abrasion than kevlar, and the design itself eliminates seams in the most vulnerable places. While most skaters purchase, destroy, and throw away pair after pair of normal pants, a single pair of PC crash pants are often worn for an entire season or more, eliminating waste into the environment and saving you money (and skin)
The Mobility Maximizing Inseam is a four way stretch fabric that allows for a range of motion not otherwise found with such a strong and durable pant.
Many customers combine G-Form shorts and knee pads for the ultimate combination of durability and protection, as the pants themselves are not padded. If you wear impact shorts you will want to consider this in choosing a size.
- Made in LA
-Built in drawstring
-Interlocked side seam
-Mobility Maximizing Inseam
-Cordura reinforcements at thighs, knees and seat.
-Half moon pocket design eliminates vulnerable seams on the seat.
-Second button keeps main button (and your pants) on during impacts.
-Exposed cordura pocket facing prevents immediate wear from grip tape while carrying board.
-Fit- See below
When picking your size consider this.
In the below photo I am wearing a well worn (stretched out) pair of pants, However, when they were brand new they sat tighter and higher on my hips than how they appear in the photo. These pants in the photo are a size 34, this is the correct place to measure your pant size. My waist measures 33-34" and I wear a size 34 crash pants. When they come out of the dryer they are a tight fit, after a 3 day skate trip wearing them every day the are much baggier and sagging.
A waist size 28 has a 31" inseam, a waist size 30 has a 32" inseam, waist 32 = 33" inseam, waist 34 = 34" inseam, 36 = 35", 38 = 36"
Hot temperature makes fabric shrink, Dying fabric requires very hot water. The Khaki, Green, Maroon, and Black have been garment dyed, which means pre-shrunk! When you unpack them and try them on they will be the smallest they will ever be, However they will stretch out immediatly. Literally after wearing them a few hours they feel looser and after a day or two they feel a full size larger. When you try them on the first time and they feel too tight dont just return them, know they will stretch out. The most comfortable and well sized pants are purchased tight because the nature of fabric stretching dictates that. However if you can't even close the button, you do need a bigger size.
The Denim pants are the opposite, they are not dyed and therefor not pre-shrunk so they will shrink a little like a normal pair of jeans.
Rest Assured that PC Apparel is truely a skater run business, I, Travis Davenport, am a part of and sincerely care about the skate family. I will be understanding about exchanges, I know these pants are an investement for you. Fit is paramount to optimal function, When you crash in baggy pants the reinfored panels do not stay where they were designed to be. Think about a leather racing suit - it is skin tight for a reason! Being patient with the tighter pair instead of exchanging right away for the bigger size will result in less road rash!
You can't return pants after crashes or days of dirty wear, but please feel free to keep them on for a while and see how they form to your body. If you still need an exchange we'll be happy to do that!
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!
