What are ¾ length pants & pirate shorts used for?When it feels too hot for full length work trousers but you still need protection at the knees a pair of functional ¾ length trousers or ‘pirate shorts’ can be the perfect solution.
These ¾ length pirate pants have knee pad pockets, giving you protection while kneeling, while venting your legs. Depending on the industry and your needs, you can find ‘pirate shorts’ of different materials. If you require a little extra from your workwear in relation to freedom of movement, you should go for ¾ length trousers with stretch. Also look for products with triple stitched seams, which make them extra durable.
To ensure wear resistance and dirt most products can be machine washed and are produced in a quality that can endure the challenges you give them - check each of them to be sure. Among our hi-vis ¾ length trousers, a few of the products are treated with Teflon®, which gives the products a dirt resistant surface.
If you use a lot of tools, you should choose ¾ length trousers with extra pockets. In the assortment, you will find products with holster pockets, as well as products where the holster pockets can be detached by means of zipper and buttons. As tools can quickly wear the fabric in the trouser pockets, many have pockets strengthened with materials such as CORDURA® and Kevlar®. These materials give you a mix of durability and puncture resistance that is rather extraordinary.
