Still way tougher than your run-of-the-mill trousers but less 'wearing in' time than our 12oz Supertrousers, these almost feel like normal pants as soon as you first put them on. Except they're not. They're Cactus Supertrousers. They're super comfortable and perfect if you need a 'lighter weight' version of Supertrousers. Great for summer. 

With washing and being a natural fabric, these will fade quite a bit. But the result is not bad. They'll become a slightly lighter, softer, worn in brown tone.

These might just be the world’s best general purpose trousers and they’re made right here in NZ. These trousers can handle a shortcut through the gorse, nailing up some framing, or fitting the chains on the access road. On the flip side they are just as sweet for waiting for your fix at the local coffee cart, stylin’ at a BBQ, or sitting in the office dreaming of better things. There are two types of people out there, those who love their Supertrousers, and those who haven’t bought any yet!

These come in two colours - classic Antelope brown and the all new Beige. 

  • Exclusive 6oz C-Canvas is super durable and instantly great to wear
  • Made by happy people who’ll be even happier if you buy some
  • Handle tricky manoeuvres, be they building houses or a quick spot of bouldering with the articulated knee design
  • Casual styling which can handle almost any social situation
  • Clothing related embarrassing situations are minimised by YKK zips (because they’re the best) and bar-tacks at all stress points
  • Phone pocket for easy access to your digital companion
  • Cactus-Tough Lifetime Warranty
  • Made in New Zealand


  • Colours: Antelope, Beige
  • Fabric: Proofed European 6oz C-Canvas
  • Weight:  grams (Medium)


  • Use mild detergent or pure soap (preferably one that's nice to the environment)
  • Our canvas has a water resistant coating which can shift and discolour through the initial break in period
  • For best results handwash until the garment is broken in - machine washing is fine after this
  • Washing inside out will minimise lighter coloured creases on the outside of the fabric, but won’t remove stains quite as well
  • Drip dry without creases (it won't take long as the polyester in the fabric doesn't hold much water)
  • Close zips while washing (they'll last longer)
  • If you get attacked by a pig and the fabric gets holed while saving your reproductive potential send them back and we'll patch ‘em for a small fee
  • If you are still not sure, give us a call or flick us an email


If you are on the taller side and think you need longer Supertrousers then you need Supertrousers Extra Long.

If you are short in the leg and would like these hemmed then you need to add Hem Shorter to this order.

The best way to find out if you need different length Supertrousers is to measure your inseam (from your crotch to the floor) and compare the measurements to this sizing chart. 

Custom Length

  • Custom leg lengths are available from -10cm shorter to +10cm longer than our standard length
  • Refer to the sizing chart to gauge whether you require a custom length.
  • The leg lengths of the standard Supertrousers fit 95% of people just fine, but for those of you who need them longer or shorter we can customise. 
  • If you would like your Supertrousers hemmed to be shorter then you need to add Hem Shorter to this order where you can specify the length.
  • For longer Supertrousers you need to go to Supertrousers Extra Long and then specify your length in Hem Longer.

  • Please note that custom length shorts and trousers cannot be returned so please choose and measure carefully - call or email us if you are not sure.
