Lightweight Work Trousers With 100% Stretch

Freedom of movement with four-way stretch


MASCOT revolutionises the workwear industry with the launch of three trousers and a 3⁄4-length trouser, all with four-way stretch. But, not just stretch! High durability, an innovative kneepad pocket design and excellent freedom of movement are also integrated.

These aren’t just work trousers; these are trousers so comfortable you won’t want to take them off! Such was the conclusion of our test panel when they evaluated the new trousers and 3⁄4-length trousers that have ergonomics, comfort and the durability to withstand most challenges.

Movement without limitations

When MASCOT decided to develop new trousers, the task was clear: MASCOT was not interested in making trousers that were only partly made of stretch material; the new trousers had to be made with 100% four-way stretch so workers could experience freedom of movement at an entirely new level. It was all hands on deck for MASCOT’s laboratory, design, development and wearer trial departments as the fabric had to be more than just elastic, it also had to be extremely durable. Conversely, the durability could not get in the way of comfort, and the fabric had to be lightweight. Through many months the fabric was tested and adjusted, and the result was exactly as hoped. The new trousers are made of soft elastic fabric and are lightweight, extraordinarily durable, and water-repellent.

Flexibility and ventilation at the knee area

Product testers from the trade and construction industries have been closely involved in the development of details on the new trousers through research and wearer trials. During the research phase, they expressed a demand for trousers with a knee area that was flexible and could be ventilated. In the new trousers, this resulted in kneepad pockets made with stretch materials so the freedom of movement isn’t limited. In addition, the kneepads can be easily removed from the side via a zipper on each pocket. This can be done quickly even when wearing the trousers. The zipper on the inside of the trousers at the knee also serves another function; it can be opened to ventilate the knee area, which can otherwise become too warm during the workday. Furthermore, the ergonomically formed trouser leg can be adjusted with the help of a press stud adjustment at the foot.

Stronger than steel

The durability has to be top class, and in the areas where you wear your clothes the most, you need extra reinforcements, e.g., at the knees. In the new trousers, MASCOT has developed a new material that combines CORDURA® and Kevlar® with the fibre Dyneema®, which markets itself as being stronger than steel. The trousers also have a ruler pocket of CORDURA®, an integrated and detachable ID-card holder, a tool strap and a thigh pocket with phone pocket with magnetic fastening.

A part of something bigger

The new generation of trousers is a part of the new MASCOT® ADVANCED range. Choose from 7 colours including the brand new colours dark petroleum and moss green. The three models of trousers come in three different leg lengths in a wide range of sizes, and both trousers and 3⁄4-length trousers have a fit suited for both men and women.
