Men who work labour-intensive jobs deserve pants that can keep pace with even the toughest tasks. So goes the thinking behind a new Kickstarter campaign from Apex Workwear, creator of indestructible pants and shorts. Their goal was simple from the get-go: craft the toughest work pants in existence, which won’t tear or fade across a variety of jobs and terrains. Each pair comes forged from an industrial-grade fabric that’s 15 times stronger than steel and that’s just one amongst a number of high-performance features. It all brings an entirely literal meaning to the phrase “built to last a lifetime” and that’s the point.
It was after he ripped his third pair of work pants in a single week that Apex Workwear founder (and concreter) Nick Schroeder was inspired to launch this latest project. Absolute toughness was the mission and it sent him on a nine-month search for the world’s strongest fibre, eventually bringing him to UHMWPE (or Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene). “Kevlar on steroids” is how the brand describes this material, which is so strong that it’s used in anti-ballistic vehicle armour, amongst other things. Now you can find it in every pair of Apex work pants and shorts.
Just how indestructible are these bad boys? Well, they’re abrasion-proof, cut-resistant, water-resistant, non-conductive, chemical-resistant, odour-resistant, and just all-around ultra-durable. As if that weren’t enough, they’re also breathable, quick to dry, lightweight, easy to maintain, eco-friendly, and climate controlled. Bring in a tailored fit, zippered pockets, and a limited lifetime warranty and you’re looking at the last work pants you’ll ever need to buy.
Nick Schroeder tried the rest and created the best and he’s bringing you the results. He put his money where his mouth is and now it’s your turn to do the same. Make this practical dream a reality by heading over to Kickstarter and getting in whilst the action is hot. No matter what your profession, expect ultra-functional and supremely durable apparel that stays the course and feels downright comfortable in the process. Take advantage of the early bird specials and you can save up to 21% on the Apex Short and up to 24% on the Apex Cargo and Apex Pant, respectively.
Even if you miss the early bird window, the brand is offering plenty of deals for those who pledge, including VIP bundles and other discounted packages. This is a no-brainer campaign for anyone who works in construction or any other physically intense environment, where inferior workwear can become both a financial burden and a constant source of distress. Pick up what Apex Workwear is throwing down and you can kiss those problems goodbye once and for all.
