Great heavy weight pants
I was having a hard time finding heavyweight traditional 100% cotton pants, but was glad to see that Karate Supplu carries them. These are amazing quality and I will cerainly order them again if I need another pair. I use these for practicing different martial arts and also because I simply like them as pants. This was the first time I tried the traditional drawstring and I will not be going back to the elastic that cuts off your circulation. You can tie these to sit EXACTLY where you want them but they wont squeeze you. I'd imagine they'd be great for grappling but I got them more as natural fiber pants for cold weather. The canvas is thick and warm yet gusseted enough for spontaneous side kicks :D I've never worn such thick pants that feel so natural for doing kicks of all kinds. I am 5' 11", 175 lbs and wear a 32x32 typically and the size 4 was perfect. It perhaps is slightly longer than my last elastic size 4 pants, but perhaps they will shrink in the wash. We shall see and I'll update if necessary. If they don't, I may have them hemmed slightly. They are longer than some size 4 Mid weight ronin pants I got off amazon. I like practicing martial arts, and wearing comfortable clothes that aren't plastic. These are probably the best pants Ive ever owned overall. Now only if there was a more "casual" version with a few hip pockets and a thigh utility pocket. Not practical for martial arts but great for working/life. A guy can dream right?
