I have an older version of the Blackpowder pants and loved them. I wore them hard and they stood up to the test. This new pair looks like it has the same durability but I the cut is WAY off and they are almost unwearable. If I wear the pants where I normally wear pants I will split the crotch if I spread my legs too much. If I wear the pants jacked up high on my waist this goes away but I can't use the fly. It feels like the sizing is way off and the whole crotch area is messed up. I suspect I will blow out the crotch in a few months which is a shame.
