Users comments
The user is a geologist and loves outdoor activities. She spends a lot of time working on her hands and knees.
An outdoor equipment store put her in contact with a seamstress with whom she designed sturdy, waterproof trousers. The seams are taped for waterproofing.

In addition to wearing the trousers for work, she wears them in the rain and when skiing.
