It is a classic: the work dungarees. We tested pants from four manufacturers, as always under real shop conditions.
For the popularity of the work dungarees with reflective material there are many reasons. So the bib protects outerwear such as T-shirts, shirts and sweaters from dirt and damage. And the length-adjustable straps provide the advantage that the pants are cut at the waist on, without being able to slip. In addition, the outerwear cannot slip out, as it is possible in normal pants. In many models, the carriers are brought together at the back below the shoulder blades and form a common piece of fabric to the buttock. But there are also embodiments in which the carrier extends parallel to the back. Thanks to the support it needs no belt, which feels some pleasant. It is best to try several models.
In practice, it depends on the equipment to
A dungaree provides plenty of storage space – back pockets, side pockets, pockets on the bib and the legs are standard. Tools and other job-related things can be carrying easily, the ruler over screwdriver up to the mobile phone.
The knees of pockets are attached, allow to be pushed cushion. This protects the knees when working on the floor. By the way, warming the reflective overalls the kidneys, which can be an important aspect in drafty halls? In general, the pants rugged & durable materials are produced. If they are dirty, they can be easily cleaned in the washing machine. Finally, they come in many shapes, sizes and colors – there’s something for every taste. However, many shops consider it important that their employees the same model wearing – for a unified image to the outside due to customers and visitors, but also to foster a sense of togetherness among colleagues.
Several days testing under practical conditions
Four models of the manufacturer Strauss, pioneer workwear and Crow; we have undergone a multi-day workshop test. The pants were worn during normal working. Our testers were four workshop employees of GSS Commercial Vehicles GmbH & Co. KG. Maik Hanselmann, trained vehicle technicians and commissioner for technical sales in the commercial vehicle specialist, summarizes the impressions of four colleagues. The
Pants were provided by the manufacturers. Our test criteria were features, comfort and handling.
Good news: All four pants beat well and will get the “thumbs up” logo. That struck us at the individual pants:
Bags offer the pants “esmotion” by Strauss plentiful, both with zippers and Velcro fasteners. On there is an inner and an outer pocket and two pen holders. “But you should remember where you stored that, otherwise you may look for first time,” says Hanselmann. At The Hip him elastics fall on, which increases the wearing comfort. At the knees, a pad can be inserted. The trousers have a hanger, which Hanselmann noted positively. The verdict: “The overalls is neatly cut and processed, the distribution of bags makes sense.” One can work well with the pants and move well in it. Suggested retail price: about 57, 90 Euro (net).
Dungarees “Modern Plus Pro” from Crow
Many ways to store things, the model provides “Modern plus Pro” from Crow. The manufacturer speaks of a “multifunctional pocket organization”. Thus, there are side pockets, pen holders on the bib, integrated coin pockets with zip and many other pockets. The back pocket is provided with reflective stripes for better visibility. “I am sometimes puzzling, for which the individual pockets are intended. But since everyone has different needs,” says Hanselmann. There is an adjustable elastic band on the side and the usual knee, which are additionally equipped with reflectors. A hanger has not discovered Hanselmann. When getting used to it looks at the arrangement of the carrier. They run on the back almost parallel. The verdict: “The pants has a proper equipment and can be worn well Also the workmanship is good.”
What our testers to the model “Star Line” was first noticed, the two large front pockets. “I did at first, at least perceived as a bit disturbing as unusual,” says Hanselmann. Bags offer the pants in all forms. On Latz there is an additional pocket, back pockets are closable. There is the usual ergonomic on a cushion on his knees. On the right side a hammer loop falls on. The plant has a hanger, which Hanselmann is important. In the hip, the width can be adjusted by means of studs, our testers noted positively. The verdict: “The pants have a good comfort and are well made.” Dungarees “Tools” from pioneer workwear
The two-colored dungarees “Tools” from pioneer waits with stretch on the sides, but also in the step. The straps are adjustable elastic. “The pants are nice flexible,” says Hanselmann. Numerous pockets and pen pockets offer enough options to accommodate things. “When the bags are filled, you have to take a little, that remains hanging anywhere,” he says. On his knees there is the possibility, upholstered foisting. The verdict: the comfort and the functionality rated Hanselmann as “good”. The processing was okay. As for the bags, everyone must know himself what he needs.
