Durable and Soft

Almost perfect fit. Fabric is thick and comfortable.

Great so far

I love how they breathe and dry out quickly. Great for hot weather!

I love these pants

Everything is great with these pants except one minor defect. The straight piece across the pick tore in day one.

Extremely small and tight fitting

I wear a size 36x32 pant so I ordered a 36 regular. These 100% are not a 36. I couldnt even get the button close to closing. I estimate these to be a 30-32. The length was fine. Additionally, these pants were extremely tight in the crotch. I went from singing bass to soprano if you catch my drift. Will return these and wont even try to purchase ano...

But seriously these are great pants they comfortable, toughest pants ever, the extra room in the crotch is great. double knees, over all great. Here's what would make them better. hammer loop, and I would like triple stitching on all the seems. but great pants truly.

Good Work Pants- Could Use A Couple of Tweaks

I bought my first pair of Iron Forge pants a few years ago after getting fed up with the diminishing quality of the work pants I had been wearing on the job site, shop, and camp site for decades. I have been pretty happy with the switch. I like the Fair Trade aspect of the pants and the material is surprisingly durable compared to my old duck canva... Read Mores pants. I do miss ruler pockets for my phone and the odd tool though. I also wish the cut was a little fuller since they are work pants, and I have had trouble with the size varying from pair to pair. I recently tried going up a waist size to insure against another "small" pair but found that size feels sloppy and I have to cinch down my belt to keep them up.

Iron hemp forged for everyday

These are some of the best everyday pants ever made hands down! Big claim I know, but Im sticking to it & the multiple pairs I own, investments in the future.

July 23, 2021

Super relaxed.

The figment was waaayyyy to relaxed for me. I know theyre work pants but they can still have a modern fit. I looked like I was in the 70s musical. Quality is there style is off for my taste.

Hello Kenneth, thank you for the review on our Iron Forge Hemp Canvas Double Knee Pants - Regular. We're sorry to hear that the fit on these didn't work out. They are considered a relax fit, perhaps you would be more interested in [regular or slim fit]( To search these options, go to the Men's pants category and select your settings in the left hand categories bar under "Fit".

Poorly made pockets

I really like my 2 pair of work pants, But the front pockets on both pair are ruined. They are full of holes and about to be useless.

Great work pants in the warm

I originally reviewed these based on cool weather experience, and I found them to be too breezy. But now I wear them for outdoor work several times a week and in the heat they breathe very well, and offer very good protection while working outdoors (ie weed whacking). Im very impressed with the breathability of these pants, I highly recommend.

Thanks so much for going the extra mile and reviewing these pants in a different environment. These details you provide on the fabric and function are very helpful!

Great double knees!

Everyone is saying theyre baggier than carhartt double knees which is true but not like THAT much baggier. I personally love the fit. The fabric is soft and broken in and although hemp I still wouldnt wear here in the PNW above 65 degrees. Looking forward to wearing them more in the fall!

I'm a fan of these pants. I also have the rest of the work wear line and all those pieces are great as well.

Luxurious Heft and Strength

The comfortable heft and weigh of these pants makes me think I'm wearing heavy linen - and that is luxurious.

Comfortable and sturdy

I was so happy with my first pair iron forge pants that I bought another pair. They're comfortable and incredibly sturdy.

April 14, 2021

Add a size 29" waist please.

I ordered these in both a 28 and 30 inch waist. The 28" was too tight and these don't stretch (a good thing). The 30" waist was too loose and uncomfortable when using a belt due to the heavy weight fabric. Please make these in a 29" waist Patagonia.

April 10, 2021


High quality work pant with functional pockets,etc. The only design issue is the width of the legs. The wide legs with extra fabric creates rubbing issues when walking, climbing.

April 10, 2021

Add a size 29" waist please.

Patagonia - can you PLEASE make these in a size 29 inch waist?!! The 28 inch waist is too small & the 30 is too large. As the fabric is thick, using a belt with the 30 inch waist feel really uncomfortable. Keep using hemp, such a great fabric for so many reasons.

April 10, 2021

Good pants

Really like. Will probably buy another pair

April 9, 2021

Very durable

These are very tough work pants. They have a great range of motion with the gusseted crotch. Ive got both colors available. If there was a 3rd, Id probably grab those too. Im still trying to get used to the back pockets, which are the same shape as the front pockets.

April 8, 2021

The best pants

This is my third pair of these pants, and I will say, they fit larger than the previous pairs, I am not sure if the years on the old pants shrunk them and they just fit better, or if I ordered a short inseam before, and a regular this time. Aside from that, this pants are amazing, and sure they can get warm in the summer, hiking through brush, doin...

Great pant, ruined by fitment issues

Im a plumber by trade. First, I absolutely adore the coloring and material of this pant and if they fit like my 30x30 rugged flex rigby double knee pants (made by that other big name brand in work wear...) I would wear them to bed. However, these pants are just completely ruined by downright odd sizing. The crotch is way too high and the gusseted c... Read Morerotch area makes it feel like youre wearing a diaper. Ive worn these to work for a few months and that feeling doesnt go away. The opening at the bottom of the legs is comically wide and literally flap around as you walk. Its like wearing parachute pants. The other issue is the back pockets. While I like them in a practical sense, it just looks silly. I get teased by coworkers and even customers asking me if I put my pants on backwards. I hope Patagonia sees my comments, and it sounds like Im not alone, and fixes these issues. If they got the sizing right and had traditional pockets, and eliminated the adult diaper of a crotch, I would seriously buy at least 3-4 pairs of these to rotate through the week because they are durable and hold up well and represent the brands values in their construction and materials.

Iron Forge Hemp double thick pants

Material OK, not crazy about hemp material. This product I will likely not wear now that I have it; the leg width at bottom of pants are Frappin huge, feels like wearing clown costume! From photos of product they did not appear to be so dang wide at bottom, yuck. Sorry, but there you now have my input. Better as tapered leg style.

Absolutely bulletproof

I was looking for an alternative to Levis when I am doing yard work, in the shop, or various work projects. These are nearly perfect. Unlike some reviews, I do like the big pockets.

Great all-round pants

These are great all-round pants. The pocket design is very intuitive and useful. They feel like they're built to last a long time; very well made.

March 20, 2021

Sturdy and comfortablerolled into one!

These pants lived up to the Patagonia standard and some. They are a tad on the small side in the waist and a tad heavy on the weight, but the fact theyre sturdy and amazingly comfortable and instantly broken in after an initial wash makes these my goto from work to casual without hesitation.

These pants will be around for a while. They fit snug at waist and then open up in legs for movement and boots. I use them in a big tree harness and they move with me easily.

One small (super tiny) detail, it would be super rad if a couple small tool pockets and a hammer loop were added mid thigh like many other pair of work pants have but honestly these are going to be more climbing pants for me so it's not an issue.

February 9, 2021

Wrong from the start

I ordered a 34" waistband; received a 36" waistband. Also, there was no indication on the web site as to the length. No inseam measurement. Unsurprisingly, they were hopelessly wrong, far too long. I can't imagine how anyone could order from here and get what they want, except by blind chance.

Love these pants for the shop

Along with 100k others I am building a gym room in the garage. Always have used Levis as shop pants in the past; they are OK. These pants are vastly better! Fit is just right (I got "short" which is 30.5" inseam; I am 5' 10.5"). Big deep pockets useful (e.g. can carry a handful of 2" to 3" screws without problem, ... Read Morenice when you are always up and down on a ladder; my pencil/marker is always with me as is a dust mask). The doubled knees work as acceptable padding on wood or smooth concrete even without a foam insert. And the pants are very comfortable straight out of the box. I washed in cold water and let hang dry, what could be easier. One note, the gusseting in the crotch is a big plus, makes athletic movements (e.g. from ladder to a ceiling) easier but I needed to wear a brief with a bit of a leg to avoid the feel of cloth between my legs. Cloth weight is excellent for cool shop (or garage) winter/spring; probably I would prefer the lighter version for summer. So rarely do I write a review but the experience with this product motivates me.

The pockets are weird. Feels more like cargo pants whose pockets got relocated right under your hip. Never had a need for a hammer loop, but I do miss having a dedicated pocket for my phone. The pockets on the Patagonia are deep, and pulling out my wallet and phone can be annoying. Shallower sub-pockets would have been appreciated. Would have been ... Read Morea solid 5 star if it did. while the pockets are quite different from what I'm used to, it's unconventional design allows me to straddle without sitting down on whatever is in my back pockets. And I can put my bifold wallet and phone in my front pocket if I choose, and they wont dig into my crotch when I squat or kneel. I can open my legs wide without being worried about tearing up the crotch thanks to the gussets, but sometimes when I'm just standing up, I can kinda-sorta feel the gusset cradling my testicles. Despite being "fuzzy", they have proven to be very abrasion resistant when I bashed through bush. While Patagonia claims their material is more abrasion resistant than duck canvas, I have not used them long enough to comfortably say that they are. Well, not yet, anyway. They are definitely way easier to work in compared to duck canvas pants. Duck canvas will require a few wash cycles before they are soft enough to comfortably squat and stand throughout your day. These hemp trousers are fine on its first wear.

Her response, its not that I want your co-workers to be checking out your butt, but you have a nice one and those pants are doing it an extreme disservice. So, each morning when I don these pants I come up against an internal struggle.

Im an organic veggie farmer which means Im also a mechanic, builder etc.. anyway these hold up well and love the fact I can through them in the compost, but when squatting hundreds of times a day to lift things its uncomfortable. the fabric grabs the knee pulls material down from the butt and takes the front of the waist and digs it in to your gut....

Nice comfortable fabric

This pant fits my slim body (148) perfectly and is comfortable even in warm weather. I would have given it a perfect score, but the pants need a side pocket for a phone.

The fabric is surprisingly heavy, which makes them a little hard to wear in the Texas summer heat. There's also an unusual seam between the legs which rubs the inner thigh if you do much walking.

The common comment about the pants is that they look I am wearing them backwards. I like the rear pockets where they are currently located . Good spot for tool access

I've never worn a better pair of pants. Climbing ladders. handling material, shoveling dirt, getting on and off of ATVs, and on and on. Mobility is a huge part of why I love these pants, as is the durability. 10/10

Double knee hemp; double tough

Great pants to wear and abuse. They are very well made and wash, dry easily but I prefer hanging outside to dry. I own three pairs and they rock.

January 28, 2020

Could be so good.

Was stoked for these to come out, unfortunately they fall short in my opinion. Cut is too relaxed for the way the fabric hangs, these are not starchy canvas like carhartt double fronts, they drape down more like thin khakis, could use a slimming even for a relaxed pant. Also wish the knee double section was all the way up like chaps( like double fr... Read Moreonts) nice to have that section when your resting a log or rock to lift it higher and just for comfort in general. lastly in my opinion, the back/seat of these pants in literally the worst looking thing in a men’s pant I’ve ever seen. They look like you have you pants on backwards, yeah I get it you can reach in the back pocket easy for screws and such, nice idea but unneeded. Any job big enough for that many nails, throw on your pouch, also your wallets going to occupy that pocket more times then nails/screws, and it wants to fall out any chance it gets. Love Patagonia and the idea and a tough hemp work wear pant. These just didn’t hit the mark for me. In my mind, copy carhartt b01’s as close as you can without getting sued with this awesome eco material and you will have a winning pant. Just my 4 cents.

Iron Forge Hemp pants

Proof will be in the wear, but I like the pants, design quirks and all. However, they say they fit true to size in waist--not my experience. 32"s more like 33+. I had to downsize to 31", which are a true, slightly generous, 32".

I bought these as a gift for my husband, and he likes them ! I love the care and eco-friendliness that’s built in. The sole complaint that I have heard from him is that, since the fabric is somewhat stiff, the waistband is a little irritating. Definitely not a deal-breaker, though !

The fabric is very comfortable and not what I expected. I REALLY like the rear pockets. They are very deep and more on the side so you don't sit on your wallet.

I'm a weekend warrior homesteader. I prune, weed, run wires, frame, drill, hammer, till and just about everything in between.

Not sure about these pants

I got these to compare to a cotton duck competitor that I've been wearing for years. I usually wear a 31x30,so I ordered the 31 short.

The seam down the... Read More side of the leg feels "twisted" which might go away once washed - they don't appear to be defects when inspecting so I'll assume it's a non issue. I'll start by saying that these will not be "work" pants until they've been used around town and trails and begin to show wear. The hemp material looks frayed / pilled right out of the package,so not sure if the softer feel and worn / pilled appearance will lead to premature wear. At this price I would hope not. These will become work pants after general use. Once they are too "rough" for work than they'll be used for hunting and wood cutting. If they can break in and perform a bit better than the competition I'll be impressed. Patagonia usually does it right,so I decided to give em' a try.

Good all around work pants

Pleased with the feel of the pants - out of the bag/box they are comfortable to work in - without any break in period. They have washed well,cleaning up dirt and minor stains with ease. Rear pockets are very deep allowing for large objects to be held. Front pockets are reasonably sized,but not large enough to fit your hands in with work gloves on. ...

My one concern/improvement suggestion would be to incorporate side pockets on the pant legs - not cargo pockets,but areas where you could hold a carpenters pencil,scissors,a flash light (mag light) and even a hammer loop. Perhaps a "carpenters" edition in the future? If so - 5 stars with ease.
