Why can't I wear denim when I go camping? It was good enough for cowboys

You totally can, I don't understand people who say you can't.
What the fuck else am I supposed to wear?
Shorts are fine if it's hot outside, but do you expect me to wear suit pants? Chinos? Fucking bellbottoms?

There's only so many varieties of pants, let alone heavy duty ones that will stand up to backwoods country, and jeans seem to be the best of the bunch.
>>
>>2024227
Yeah.
>>
you can
I do all the time
comfortable
can really suck when wet though
not super warm
>>
>>2024227
>stay wet
Cotton has evolved to wick moisture from every source possible and hold on to it. Denim will remain wet if you sweat into it, making you downright cold if the temperatures drop at night.

>abrasive
Denim is abrasive on its own, and more so when it’s wet. This can be pretty uncomfortable if your moving around a lot.

I should have specified. I meant for winter camping. I usually go 2 layers of PJs and then a pair of denim over top. This costs like $50 in total and is as effective at keeping me warm as whatever $400 meme pants from north face you are about to recommend
>>
Do you all wear pants in the summer instead of shorts? I feel like pants would be better because of ticks and all the bugs?

I hate getting my mom to do tick checks on me after going /out/....I'm 34 and ts weird stripping down so she can look for ticks.

i only learned the cotton kills catch phrase this past year after wearing denim pants and shirts while outdoors for my whole life. i just assumed being damp and cold was an expected fact of hiking and camping lol. i think a lot of amerifats are much too soft and needing of comforts. we are outside for a reason if you want to be warm and comfy get a different interest/hobby

Ticks may blend in or be hard to notice in crevices or folds in gear, clothes, body, and hair. Small ticks can hide anywhere. You could inadvertently transport one back and get infected days after. Maybe it wouldn't be you but a pet or your mother.
The only way to be safe is for you and your mother to check each other for five days after you get back. Better safe than sorry.

Yes ducks are quite waterproof.

>>2024812
Duck is a fabric like denim

>>2024227
If you're simply camping, shouldn't be a issue. If you're hiking or doing something active in the heat. Columbia makes /out/ pants.

Funny note, a lot of logging crews wear Nylon instead of blue jeans these days. Mainly because Nylon frays and stops a chainsaw while denim does not.
>>
>>2024844
There's more to chainsaw pants than nylon, friend. But having said that, some of the harder wearing nylon, like whatever the fuck is in Fallraven pants, is impressively resistant to anything the woods can throw at you.

Fjällräven uses polycotton. Nylon pants are often lighter and meant for hiking. I guess you could make pants out of nylon cordura too, but they would not breathe well (is my conjecture). A lot of workwear is polycotton with cordura reinforcements, think there's a reason for that.

You can. they are durable and functional. They are kinda hot and suck if they get wet. I like them camping but not for strenuous backbacking.

Jeans were laborers pants, men who worked in settlements, large camps and mines. They still work great for this, but there are better options when it comes to distance walking. Many Americans of the westward expansion chose moleskin or corduroy over jeans for mundane tasks

Mens modern formal wear takes most of its design from 18th and 19th hunting and military clothing, It keeps a decent amount of that functionality today. Are there equal or better options? Certainly. Are there more available and lower cost options? Arguably no
>>
>>2024991
I’d image that the work pants of the 19th century are more like the Cargarts I wear to work, and not like the Levi’s I wear around the house.
>>

You don't need them but they are better.

>>2024616
Correct.
>>
>>2025003
I think you'd be surprised, denim as a material really hasn't changed much. 100% cotton jeans as fashion are essentially just broken in from the factory. Pic related is a pair from 1890 that probably looks like your house pants.

>>
>>2025191
Only if you have a bad eye for details. The material is very much different today. One of the reasons they make that shit pre-distressed is they know the shit they give you will not last long enough to become distressed anymore.
My boomer parents remember Levis in 1970 that would stand up on their own when you got them.
You can only see that today with really fucking expensive brands.

Patently false. Canvas is garbage unless you want to pay an arm and a leg for a fuckin pair of pants.
>>
>>2024663
Buy better jeans then, shit-for-brains. It isn't like there is only one style. There are like 12 common varieties.
>>
>>2025217
Stop projecting ignorance. When I said details I wasn't even talking about the fabric. 1890 models were very fucking different pants to what is made today.
If you want something *kind of* like jeans used to be you can try Wrangler Cowboy Cut. Has to specifically say cowboy cut otherwise you are probably looking at one of their fashion models.
Those ones are kind of midway baggy, midway rigid and high-waisted.

Are your legs so short you're incapable of sliding your butt across wet logs in jeans?

those are the exact ones i buy, mwzpw. the cotton is decently heavy. never bothered with carhartts, just add patches to the knees if you need more protection. normally after 2-3 years of wear i need to add patches anyway from crawling around in the dirt

>>2024227
You can hike in whatever you want anon, cotton, as Im sure has already been mentioned is less than ideal. me and some buddies did the JMT like 6 years ago, and on about day 5 I busted out some daisy-dukes I brought for the lulz. Jokes on them, they HAD to hike with me.

>>2025213
>>2025224
I'm afraid you misunderstand me. You're right that many modern jeans are a different weight (and often made of an elastic blend) than denim work pants of the past. However, independent of the cut and fit, pure denim --by its nature-- is made by largely the same material (just cotton) in largely the same organization of the warp and weft. It's been this way since its inception. Which brings us to the crux of this discussion: its place outdoors. Its excellent in any environment where you can take it off at the end of the day, knowing full well it will be dry by the time you don it next. However, when put in comparison to other fabric options its slower to dry, chafes more , and loses virtually all insulating properties. The phrase "cotton kills" is a bit of a misnomer, more specifically "wet cotton kills". If not mitigated (thermals, hardshell, ect) than ling term denim can become a liability to the wearer.

Wow what a reasonable level headed response.

You can? Why can't you? I mean, it's not absolute efficiency, but it's usually good enough.

They're durable. You can easily put some long johns under them if it's cold. The only draw I can see they're an absolute pain to cross a river/body of water with.

The synthetic pants will dry faster and won't take up nearly as much water in the first place.

When I was a cowboy the jeans were more conducive to riding and keeping snakes from biting your ankles than anything.

>>2024227
Because it's heavy, doesn't dry quickly and is usually cut in a way that restricts movement. A pair of lightweight sythetic hiking pants dries quickly, is abrasion resistant, and allows for a full range of motion. I like my clothes to actually be dry by the next day if I fuck up and fall in a creek. Also, they can be had for cheap from Decathlon or some similar retailer.

I do agree that that material that Levi's uses might be different nowadays even compared to around 1990. My dad had a pair from around 1993 or so that held up better than a pair bought around 2013. The 1993 one didn't get super loose around the knees whereas the 2013 became nearly unwearable in just a couple years. They were meant to be the same model as well, so the only thing that should have changed was the year.

Late fall/winter/Early Spring: wool slacks with medium (fleece) or light weight long johns (synthetic), hardshell pants if I suspect foul weather. Pair with an 6 inch hiking boot or neoprene rubber boot.
Early fall/late spring: nylon hiking pants with the same base layers, same boots or waterproof hiking shoes
Summer: nylon hiking pants with silk weight long underwear , zip offs w/o base layer if I know I'm crossing any water body. Lately I've been favoring a regular breathable running shoe unless I know they'll be significant bushwacking.

Here in Texas I hike in jeans 99% of the time, but it's true it doesn't rain much where I live and hiking in wet denim is miserable. Having said that, jeans are comfy most of the time, and the faggots that wear their fancy pantsy canvas trousers probably got their lunch stolen by the school bully.

If you want something versatile and non-expensive denim is the way to go.

I like jeans, i wear them when i go shopping and shit, but i've found for hiking they can be a little restrictive when you want to lift your legs up, say to climb a fence or something. So I go with cargo pants since tend to be baggier.

If you are a twink with skinny legs you can, if you have proper quads then denim restriction is very real, not to mention testical pain.

Jeans with 1-2% elastane are pretty good for hiking if for some reason you dont mind the loss of a cargo pocket, unlike 100% denim + models with elastane last far longer.

Australian wading in for what it's worth. I wear jeans exclusively when bushwalking. Outside the Alpine region it rarely freezes even in midwinter. Here the main threats are sunburn, snakes and scratches from rough growth. Jeans are great against these. The sunburn risk is the most insidious, because of the damaged ozone layer there are times when an hour's direct exposure causes second degree burns which can get infected when the blisters pop.

I'm not concerned of getting wet, retard. Wool socks heat up in a few minuets even if soaking wet, the pants don't hold water and dry up from the body heat.
>>
>>2029088
Correct. Cowboys way back in the day wore shit pants made out of shit they could find like burlap sacks.

>im not concerned of getting wet
then why are you arguing that cotton is unsuitable for wet conditions, you are nuts
>>
>>2029982
I've already explained why. Cotton hold water and will cool you down. I use materials that dry up fairly quickly and wool will give some warmth even when wet.
>>
>>2030315
so you are concerned? or youre not? make up your mind

You are aware that there are many different ways of making clothes from cotton?
Of course jeans do in general soak up a lot of water.
I wouldn't use jeans if there was a high likelyhood of getting wet, but when it's nice and dry, maybe cool weather, I will often use jeans.
They can take a lot of abuse if it's of decent quality, comfy, warm enough for spring or fall if it's dry.
Also, my most used pants for /out/ stuff are made from cotton, though waxed, quite thin and light material, dries very fast on the body, much faster than any synthetics I've used, doesn't smell like shit after being sweaty once, doesn't rip easily, it's just damn good as long as it isn't pissing down.

I accept it instead of being concerned about it.

jeans + wool sweater is all you need. I ski, hike, camp with this, just put on a coat if it's too cold or rainy
>>

Was literally invented for cowboys who slept under the stars and lived in their saddles. Anyone telling you its not for the outdoors is a retarded faggot and deserves to be kicked in the balls.

what do you use for a baselayer and as a rainproof? Wool baselayers suck compared to poly in my experience. Jeans can be good for hiking, but they really need to have 1-2% elastane, it makes a huge difference, 100% cotton denim sucks for any more intense activity + plumbers crack.

>>2033917
What about wool as a base layer don't you like?
Merino is great and doesn't smell, but can be quite fragile when thin.

it rips very easily, I like wool mix with poly (up to 40%), high wool % baselayer is very fragile compared to poly baselayers and there isnt that much difference in performance

There's a reason jeans were invented in the western US, they are only good in dry climates

>ITT mom-assed dads complaining their thunder thighs dont fit into their levis like they used to. sorry you ate too many triple quarter punder meals to be able to wear jeans comfortably anymore. i think some companies do offer a "relaxed" fit for those with size 40+ waistlines

thats not the west thats just central america..
>>
>>2034162
No, that’s the west. Beyond that, past the Cascades or Sierras, is the West Coast. It has a defined rainy season followed by a season drought, ie a long period of no rain. It’s one of the reasons they suffer from yearly forest fires and why people strap shit you’d never want to get wet on the outside of their packs.
