bigbuck, does the material in front of the knee pad hold up pretty good to wear and tear?
Wondering if they hold up longer then a regular pair of jeans.

Yes, made very strong, don't wear mine everyday, but have had 3 yrs. now & are holding up very well.

andersenappliance, have you tried their work pants with knee pad pockets?
If so what do you think of them? They look like they have a lot of nice products.

Do appliance repair men have bad backs or knees? is this jobs hard on the body? could a person still do appliance repair when there in their 70's or older?  I'm thinking about learning this craft, I'm 28 now and in good physical shape.
Man, your talkin more than 40 years from now. Now that's planning ahead. Seriously, bad back and bad knees. I take it really easy. I do not deliver or strain myself in any way. Us older guys need to be careful and especially when getting on a roof. If we get hurt, nobodies gonna pay our bills!

I've been tempted by the firehose pants but I'm still wearin' my sears toughskins. ::)

I swear by their no-ass-crack t-shirts, though.

I agree with some of the other guys.  If this is your passion, nothing will get in your way.

I'm thinking about ordering some longtail t-shirts from Duluth Trading Co.
Every try out their return policy?
