Ledge Pants: Stainproof Pants for Everyday Use

Locally grown in Seattle, Wa is the upstart company founded by Peter Kirk called Ledge Pants. Peters story is fairly simple, he basically destroyed countless pairs of pants during his daily endevours climbing, cycling and just doing day to day tasks that everyone can relate to like spilling anything from coffee to a soda on your beloved pants.

The answer to this age old problem of finding a pant that can withstand nearly anything you throw at it but at the same time still be something you can feel confident in wearing and still looking fresh is non other than the Ledge Pants. Here are a few exerpts from the description of the pants in a more technical verbage directly from the company and an intro video directly from Peter Kirk himself:

Water and Stain Resistance The inside of The Pants are breathable and wick away sweat, while the outside repels water and stains. In fact, anything from apple juice to wine will slide right off as if The Pants were made of glass. If anything does start to soak through, it will be wicked away promptly. Tougher stains like grease and oil can be rubbed off, or they will come out in the wash.

Durability The Pants are more durable than jeans. Plus, only the sturdiest zippers and buttons make it into these pants. This showed through one day when Carl crashed his bike during a rainstorm, resulting in no damage to his pants but plenty of foul words.

Easy Care Frequent washing is unnecessary with these pants. We prefer to wash them in cold water, followed by a tumble dry on low. Both drying and ironing are ways to reactivate the water and stain repellent treatment. Furthermore, The Pants resist wrinkles. Within an hour of wear, all wrinkles will disappear.

Aesthetics The Pants look just like your other chinos and dress pants. We are going with a simple, clean aesthetic: no logos, no Velcro, no shiny gizmos. This means that you can wear the same pair of pants to your business meeting and on your commute home.

Ease of Movement Due to the high elastane content (10%) in the fabric, The Pants stretch like you might expect yoga pants to. As opposed to straining and binding, they respond to your movements by gently moving wherever you please.

Sustainability The fabric used in production is from a bluesign certified manufacturer, meaning that it is made in an environmentally sustainable way. Also, production is in the same city as we are, cutting out a bunch of wasteful shipping. By keeping things local, we are able to create jobs and support businesses that want to do the same. Buying a pair of pants will improve your life, and will help improve the lives of many more.
