It’s 5 a.m. on the docks of Southie, a hard Boston neighborhood of massive containers and ship to shore container cranes. You seal up your Yeti thermos and head towards the docks for a back breaking 12 hours of loading and unloading ships, something that’s in your DNA and you love it. You’ve come prepared. Your choice of clothing; Longshoreman Pants and Faroe Island Field Shirt You’ve chosen the Longshoreman Pants for several value added reasons: they have built in nylon/Spandex stretch that lets you climb in and out of your container transporter with ease; deep front pockets keep your quick access stuff safe; Two-way low profile cargo pockets with vertical zippers store your cell phone, energy bars, work gloves, etc. with quick access when seated; two zippered back pockets round out these pants; and the best part of all is their super good looks allow you to brush them off and head to the L-Street Tavern to knock down a few with your mates.
Cheers to that!
These are very sturdy comfortable and well made pants. I particularly like the somewhat heavier weight of these trousers. If youre out on a chilly and/or breezy day you feel that you have something thick enough to give you some protection. This was my first purchase from RailRiders and I am very happy with the product and would recommend these pants to others. I expect to get a lot of use from them. Also love the fit.

When I first wore these pants they were a definite 5 STAR They looked good felt great (the lining is excellent) the pocket closures were helpful but not obnoxious the cloth does not show wrinkles ... all around great pants. BUT -- RailRiders saved money by not making as many different waist sizes. I am a size 36 waist but I needed to select between 34-36 and 37-39. I choose the latter. The trousers have small elastic bands to overcome the pants being too large. However being 2" smaller than the size (38" to 36") these don't hold the trousers up and one has to cinch up a belt to make them truly fit. I would have returned them but RailRiders will not allow refunds on sale merchandise. Too bad they're really nice otherwise.

Another great product from RailRiders I have a couple other pair of their pants and nothing happens to them. Both are over 5 years old been worn a sit ton and look like new. I really like the pockets that you can get into sitting down. These Longshoreman Pants are the same quality great pockets and they fit as all my others perfect. You really can't go wrong with these pants.
