Snickers Workwear 3212 Trousers Road Test

Dec 25, 2007
If you have been observant, you will have noticed many workers wearing Snickers Workwear recently. Snickers seem to be the latest big thing in the work wear and safety industry. Not one to be behind the times we decided to try a pair of the Snickers 3212 trousers.

On first inspection, the pants seem rather high quality. The smooth material that makes up the majority of the pants is what Snickers call Dura twill, which is a mix of cotton and a synthetic man made fibre called polyamide, which is a more modern form of nylon. This so-called Dura twill has a nice feel to it and apparently is easy to clean and care for, which we will certainly find out about when Mrs Nickson gives them a wash.

The pouches and pockets on the pants are made out of a material called Cordura, which is like the hardwearing material that sports bags tend to be made out of. The Knee areas and pockets appear to be quite hard wearing, in comparison to denim at least.

In wearing, the pants seem comfortable, at first. Plenty of room around the groin area, fit well over the boots and the waistband sits nicely (more on this later). Snickers say they trousers anticipate your next move, which seems a bit like sales patter, but in truth, the 3212 trousers are complete un-restricting, without being like the baggy pants an angry teenagers may wear.

Put more simply you do not feel like a fool wearing them, and to be honest I think they are quite trendy, in work wear terms, remember nobody is going to want to wear an Armani suit to a building site, unless your one of those corporate types on a jolly.

After wearing them for Eight hours, I must admit the waistband started to get on my nerves, but then again I am 57, and I have a bit of a belly.

One thing that did start to annoy me even after wearing them of just a couple of hours is the stupid, stupid pouches. I am sure if your carry a selection of 400 nails and screws, 20 screwdrivers and a slide rule around with you, you may find them useful. Nevertheless, with me, they just got in the way of my pockets.

Speaking of pockets there are many things snickers have right. The phone pocket for instance, on the left leg, is such a great place to store your mobile. It really keeps it out of the way you are not going to smash it against a wall with your knee, and it keeps it from bouncing around.

The Ruler pocket on the right leg is handy I guess. I don't carry a ruler with me, but I tried these the pocket out. Nevertheless, if works well and keeps the ruler out of your way when not in use.

The back pockets are quite ingenious too. For my sins, I smoke and usually with any other pants, you sit down and end up with a crushed cig packet. The pockets on the snickers come out at the sides, so you do not crush anything when you sit down.

Washing and cleaning wise, the 3212's are pretty easy to clean, or so my wife says. I would have thought they've be hard to iron, but turning them inside out reveals a nice smooth surface, fantastic, no ear ache.

In Summary, could not recommend a pair of 3212's the pouches just got in my way too much. However, just before writing this article I found out snickers made a 3312, same pants, and no pouches. I ordered four pairs.

If tool pouches are your thing, order yourself a pair of Snickers 3212 Trousers. If being comfortable and looking good at work is your thing, buy a pair of 3312's now, you won't regret it.
