Take a look at what the kids are wearing while strolling down the street in Cooltown, USA, and you’ll undoubtedly find a whole lot of workwear: double-knee pants, overalls, and hooded jackets made from stout canvas and cotton duck. The outdoor-minded apparel designers at dirtbag-favorite brand Mountain Hardwear see it too, and they've recently reimagined some of these workwear staples for outdoorsy lifestyle folks like you and me in the new Jackson Ridge collection, which includes jackets, overalls, and yes–double-knee pants for both men and women.
The concise, six-piece line consists of just two items that cover both men’s and women’s, beginning with the Women’s Jackson Ridge Jacket ($175) and Men’s Jackson Ridge Jacket ($175). Both combine a durable cotton canvas outer with a filled nylon body and cozy sherpa fleece lining in the shoulder and hood areas. The look as akin to a classic Carhartt coat.
The complementing Women's Jackson Ridge Pant ($120) and Men’s Jackson Ridge Pant ($120) utilize the same cotton canvas in a slimmer-than-standard reinforced knee work pant. Articulated knees improve mobility while doing workwear things, or bouldering in the park.
Exclusively for women, there's the Jackson Ridge Bib ($200), a cotton canvas bib overall that earns our recognition as this set’s MVP. A proper spread of pockets, a lined body, and ankle zips push the bib over the fashion overall line and into defendable workwear territory. Men get the Jackson Ridge Long Sleeve Shirt ($110), which rounds out the group in the recurring cotton canvas fabric. The fit is relaxed, like a traditional work shirt, with lowered chest pockets.
Each Jackson Ridge piece comes in the wearer’s choice of tan, fatigue green, red clay, and black. Our recommendation: grab one of each in alternating colors, or go full-monotone for a job site-inspired look at camp or in town.
