Due to popular demand we bring you Slim Fit Supertrousers. These will tuck into your gumboots easier, hook up less and are just as hard core as your standard Supertrousers. Apart from the slimmer fit the only other difference is a new waist band for added comfort. They also look really stylish around town... and we're okay with that.

If you are on the tall side and after longer Slim Supertrousers, you need Slim Supertrousers Extra Long

Please note XXL size are "Made-to-Order". That means that we won't necessarily have them in stock at all times. Click here to email or call us on 0800 122 682 to find out.

  • 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, Ocean, Slate, Olive, Black (Premium)

Fabric: Proofed European 12oz C-Canvas

Weight: 780 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 long in the leg and think you need longer Slim Supertrousers then you need Slim 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.

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 Slim 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.


Nothing else mattersReview by Bryan
I have 2 pairs of super trousers and if I'm going to be wearing longs then these are the only ones I wear. all my other trousers are abandoned for these. They are super tough look the business and are comfy as. The blue ones do fade unevenly in the wash and looked a bit scruffy to start with, whereas the brown ones were good from the get-go. They both are looking evenly worn. one thing I have done though, is had the hems bound with tape (extra $20) worth it to stop the inevitable fraying when they rub on your boots. Personally I can't see me ever wearing anything else now. (Posted on 27/01/17)
A better investment then a house in AucklandReview by Pig
Im a Drainlayer in Auckland. I purchased these a year ago now just a winter was setting in as jeans were wearing out far too quickly. Jumping in and out of muddy tenches and diggers all day, using concrete saws, concrete mixers the slim super trousers take all of it in their stride, and at the end of the day you just dust them of and your ready or the next one. No signs of wearing out, if anything they are getting better with age like a fine wine.
Im 177cm and 63kgs and the XS size is bang on. Now at work all I wear is cactus as it lasts! Keep up the good work. (Posted on 26/05/16)
Simply the bestReview by Henry
I was sick of trashing all my trousers in a matter of months so I decided to invest in a longer term solution. And these fit the bill perfectly. Yes they are a bit stiff initially, but they break in wonderfully. Basically I've worn them everyday since I bought th a few months ago. And still haven't washed them... Save water and just brush the dirt off.
As for sizing, I'm 185cm and 75kg and the small extra long fit me perfectly.
Awesome service from cactus too. Cheers (Posted on 4/05/16)
So goodReview by Ruru
These SSTs are so amazing they will ruin all other non-cactus 'jeans' for you. I simply can't wear other jeans now. I've been wearing these continuously (apart from the odd wash) since I brought them. The lighter canvas is really nice and once they are broken in they fit like a glove.
The tight weave of the quality canvas seems to make them more wind resistant than normal jeans, they don't seem to get wet and stay wet like normal jeans, and you can honestly wear them for weeks on end without washing them and they don't ever get smelly.

These pants will grow on you (not literally)Review by James
I finally got a pair of these legendary pants earlier in the year, and wished I had done it sooner. They are as hard wearing and practical as you've heard, and you'll soon become a happy-clappy Cactus evangelist like the rest of us. They take a while to break in, and I'd recommened not trying to do that during summer, as they are pretty warm. But like any good relationship, as they learn to adapt to your needs, you will learn to adapt to them. I almost cried when I put a saw through my knee - not because of the damage to my leg, but because of the damage to my pants. Thankfully, the team at Fitzgerald Ave had them stictched up and back to me within a day or two. I look forward to growing old with them. (Posted on 31/07/15)
Slim Super TrousersReview by Stephen
Im an Electrician in the Waikato. I brought a pair of the Slim Super Trousers back at the beginning of Winter. Love them! Super tough, Comfortable and Stylish. I wear them everywhere, almost every work day on heavy, dirty construction and building sites. Also started wearing them on the weekends. So I've ordered another pair, other wise I don't get a chance to wash the pair that I've got! These pants are built to last, which is money well spent. Awesome Trousers, awesome gear. Good stuff guys, keep up the good work! (Posted on 30/07/15)
