Revival of the Practical & Durable

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Prairie Bill from Cedar Falls, IA on Thursday, September 9, 2010
These are the best pants I've ever had for field work (ecology studies, photography) and cool season camping & backpacking. They're extremely comfortable, durable and serviceable. I've had two pairs of USA-make that I've worn for several years, for everything from bog-slogging to prairie burning. They're so stained and worn that I won't wear them in public anymore--but I keep on wearing them in the field. When I saw the "revival" Dourada-G's for sale, I bought two more pairs immediately. The only difference I've noticed so far is that the pair labelled of Indian manufacture has shallower front pockets--maybe a pointless attempt at cutting a few pennies off the cost? Otherwise, the fit and feel and features all seem the same...and these I'll be able to wear in public, as indeed I already have.
