Patagonia Men’s Iron Forge Hemp Canvas 5-Pocket Pants – Gear Destroyer Approved


Aaron in the Patagonia Men’s Iron Forge Hemp Canvas 5-Pocket Pants

The first time I put on the Patagonia Iron Forge Hemp Canvas 5-Pocket Pants, I thought – “Did they already run these through a few cycles or something?” as they felt broken in already. With a blend of 55% industrial hemp, 27% recycled polyester, and 18% organic cotton cloth, the pant material felt very comfortable and burly for its weight.

My pants are a 32 Regular which works for my 32×30 frame while wearing shoes. On the other hand, I couldn’t get away with walking in these around the house barefoot without rolling them up due to the extra cuff length.

Patagonia’s website indicates that their Workwear styles offer a bit more volume compared to other types of pant cuts. The Iron Forge Hemp Canvas pants weren’t necessarily baggy, but they didn’t have a slim feel either.

I didn’t feel any hindrance from the fit of the pants during my movements. Bending in these pants was a breeze as I didnt feel any extra material bunching up between my legs or the front of the pants squeezing down.

After several months of work around the house and in the yard, I’ve put the Patagonia Iron Forge Hemp Canvas 5-Pocket Pants through the motions with repeated exposure to sawdust, snagging from rose bushes, and spilling coffee. After multiple washes at different settings, the pant construction has held up well.

In the end, Patagonia gets another thumbs up from the Gear Destroyer with their Workwear line and the Iron Forge Hemp Canvas 5-Pocket Pants, which comes in two colors, Coriander Brown and Stone Blue, and three lengths – short, regular, and long.
