I haven't bought jeans in forever. I don't find them very comfortable. These are great though. I'm not a huge fan of the classic dark blue colour as I prefer a little more faded look, but they are comfortable and durable enough to use for outdoor chores and living. Similar to deadpoint pants but with the look of jeans. Maybe a little to much material in the waist area (these are a little saggy in the bum) but function and comfort are great.
