Going down on one knee might be a romantic gesture, but spending lots of your work day on your knees is less so, and can take it’s toll on your and your pants. That’s why we make the Trade Plus Supertrousers, a true fully-featured work pant with reinforced, padded knees.

Crouch and engage with external main pockets at the waist - the contents displace away from your body. The pockets are tough enough to handle an occasional handful of nails or screws as well. Two full size pockets at the back give you a place for that bit of ply with the crucial measurements written on it and your pie money, and the belt loops are wide enough to take a full width equipment belt. We’ve also added ample dedicated pockets for a cellphone, ruler, and punches or measuring tape, and two reinforced hammer loops that stands out from your leg for easy use. We're confident those who need work pants this tough and this protective will really appreciate them.

Check out the Trade Supertrousers without the knee pad and our Trade Shorts too...

NEW UPDATES: Kevlar kneepads, larger cellphone pocket (fits an Iphone 7+ and a Galaxy Note S7), and 2 hammer loops.

  • Super durable and highly wearable 12oz C-Canvas
  • New Kevlar knee-pads – this stuff is super tough. It's tensile strength is over eight times greater than that of steel wire. These knee-pads won't be wearing out in a hurry.
  • Removable foam padding in the Kevlar reinforced knees
  • Your tools and other essentials are within reach with cellphone, ruler and measure pockets and two hammer loops
  • For everything else roomy external main pockets are durable and easy to access
  • The details that matter, bar tacked stress points and YKK zips
  • Wide belt loops for utility belts
  • Phone pocket
  • Construction backed by a lifetime warranty on materials and workmanship

Specs

  • Colours: Antelope - a dark chocolatey brown, (in 12oz C-Canvas). Or Black (in Premium 12oz, soft-feel canvas). 
  • Weight: 950 grams (Large)
  • Fabrics: Proofed 12oz C-Canvas, C-1000n6 reinforcing. Kevlar knee-pads.

Care

  • Remove foam padding from knees before washing
  • Use mild detergent or pure soap (preferably one that's nice to the earth)
  • 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 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)
  • Didn’t see that nail sticking out and somehow managed to tear your pants on it? Drop them back to us and we’ll weld them up (OK they’re not that tough, we’ll probably use a patch)
  • If you are still not sure, give us a call or flick us an email

Sizing

If you are long in the leg and think you need longer Trade Plus Supertrousers then you need Trade Plus Supertrousers Extra Long


If you are short in the leg and would like to have your Supertrousers hemmed then you need to add Hem Shorter where you can specify what length you'd like. 

If the colour or size you want is not showing, we are probably out of stock. Email or call us to find out when they will be here or to place a backorder.

Custom Length

  • Custom leg lengths are available from -10cm shorter to +10cm longer.
  • 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 Trade Plus 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.

Reviews

Carpenter use.Review by Rune
Perfect pants for carpentry use. For work I usually change pants everyday, because they get so dirty or wet, but with these pants they don't hold onto the dirt/ dusts and grime ,so only need the one pair all week. Saved so much washing! Very comfortable and getting more so as they lose their stiffness. Knee pads are a great size and not too bulky. Front pockets are nice, being so big. Fabric is very tough, scrapped my leg along a rusty nail sticking out yesterday, would of normally teared a massive hole in the pants but not even a blemish. Great job Cactus! (Posted on 6/08/17)

Amazing Work WearReview by Andrew Thrall
I run a landscaping and masonry business in Maine, USA. Smashing granite and wrestling trees into the ground used to shred through multiple pairs of expensive pants every year... NOT ANYMORE!!! These supertrousers are well designed, stylish, and virtually indestructible. The pockets are deep and secure. Removable knee provide just enough cushion for kneeling all day without being too bulky when you're upright. Once you break these pants in you won't want to take them off. Also picked up a pair of Trade Pockets, highly recommend these as well, great accessory for holding everything from screws or nails to a cold beer at the end of the day. Well done Cactus!

awesome gearReview by hmmmnz
From old website: now had my super trousers for 7 years, they take a while to wear in, but they are perfect once they have, They see nearly daily use for work and summer motorcycle riding, if i could only have one pair of pants for the rest of my life, this would be them, and the way its going they probably will last that long too, cheers cactus, awesome gear (Posted on 16/10/14)
