I am harder on my clothing than anyone I know. I have blown out, torn up and slid through more pairs of jeans than you can imagine. I learned a while back that work pants would last me much longer, while the double knee and heavy fabric adds a small amount of protection from the wind and the elements while riding.

Red Clouds takes the work pants that I have come to know and love, and pulls from the experience of everyone in the Collective to bring a truly engineered and well thought out pair of pants that will last you years. There are so many impressive details and small elements to improve the fit and function of this product, the hand crafted attention to detail really shines though.

The pants are fitted, but not too tight, an issue I often have with "hip" motorcycle pants. Made of 10.10oz waxed canvas, light rain will bead up and fly off rather than soak into the fabric.

I have always put my phone in my back pocket while I ride, and spending so many hours in the saddle, the lower corner would wear through the fabric more quickly than the rest of the pants would wear out, leaving me with a hole there. RCC has this problem covered as well, with an extra layer of that thick canvas covering the lower half of both pockets, ensuring that you can wear these bad boys with whatever in you want to carry and they won't wear through. The folding knife pocket placed a little lower than your normal hip pocket relieves the pressure that can be caused by sitting with that on your hip. With eight pockets in total, you'll have a comfortable and easily accessible place for your phone, lighter, wrench, screwdriver, wallet, pen, keys, and whatever else you need to have with you.

The more I wear them, the better they look, and the more impressed I get with the design and construction. While they may be on the high-end, price wise, something this well made is worth every penny. Available in four colors, and also in a women's fit, the GN.01 Waxed Canvas Work Pant is going to be in our arsenal for a long time.
