I figured I’d try my chances of asking this here.

I’m having a hell of a time trying to find decent baggy cargo joggers anywhere online. It’s the cold season up here, and I need something warmer for night skating.

If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be hugely appreciated.

Pointing you in the right direction would be saying to you dont wear cargo joggers
[close]

I won’t defer to you unless you post a fit in the “post your fit” thread.

It’s mostly for nostalgia/comfort purposes for my nightly solo sessions post work. It’s not for fashion purposes, or skating with the homies.

I like your logic that I have to post a "fit" to comment about types of pants in the loose pants thread
Its good.
  Anyway I was only Kidding around.  Your pants are none of my business  ;)
[close]

Nah you’re good.

I just didn’t like having to explain why I was asking for what I was specifically asking. I don’t even like the idea of wearing joggers out, but I’m prioritizing warmth for winter nights.

There’s a well lit overhang just down the road that is my practice spot.

I don't know anything about joggers tbh, but my pro tip is to Google whatever you're looking for plus "ripstop" and also check out the "Shopping" tab on Google

I've never heard of this brand and don't know their reputation but are any of these what you are looking for? Looks like they're having a sale?: https://www.brooklyncloth.com/collections/ripstop-joggers

Other search terms that might be helpful for pants that are both mobile enough and durable enough for Skateboarding might be "hiking" "climbing" "work" "outdoor" or "military" "combat" "tactical".

Post whatever you end up getting.

Here are some random links I found... I don't know shit about brands so other people will have to say how bad any of these are or any of these websites/stores are. Just random links I found that might be relevant:

Thanks for the links guys! Maybe I should be searching for straight up sweats?

Anyways, I just picked up some of the Dime baggy jeans in the Winter 2022 drop. They look like they’re gonna be a little more substantial than the DJCO jeans from the previous release.

Don't give up on your cargo jogger dreams. Sounds like a solid skate pant to me personally.

Maybe also look into tactical/BDUs... Might be able to get what you're looking for by synching the openings a certain way via the built in adjustable openings.

I assume they mean like ninja pants or something where its looser on top, and tight at the ankles. Some of the ones I linked almost fit the bill?

Current day joggers are definitely slimmed down but that’s the point of the thread we are seeking to find looser versions….and in this case with cargo pockets….like some wu welsh type shit…

Exactly!

I honestly think I’m just thinking baggy cargo sweats. I used to rock them all the time in my early skate days circa 2001.

but “baggy cargo sweatpants” in google found a lot of options

Just got the dime baggy fit jeans in washed black. First impression, I love them. The denim itself feels nice, a tad thinner than the black silver tabs I have. They’re definitely baggy but are tapered enough so they don’t feel like too much. I wear a 34 waist normally and the large’s fit as expected. I’m a 28-29 inch inseam, and these are a bit long, so I’d guess these are 30-32 inches.

This is why I can't wear any skate brand pants. No inseam options.
If I don't get at least a 34" inseam my pants highwater like crazy, and I strongly dislike highwater pants.
To get any skate brand pants long enough I have to buy them in like a 38" waist (I'm a 32")

Yeah that must be frustrating. I think I saw Polar Surf had some "tall" sizes, but I honestly am not sure if I've seen them stocked anywhere besides their own site?

Yeah i bought a pair of WKND loosies and they're great except the inseam is 29". It's definitely a "look" and they're so nice to skate in I just dont worry about it, I run them. But they're strictly for skating, can't walk around town with my pants stopping above my shoe.

Went shopping with my gf yesterday, and didn’t even realize madewell had mens stuff. In store these were only $40. Very comfortable, lightweight and breathable, not all that baggy (less bag than they’re Straight cut chino)

Just picked up a pair of these Calvin Klein jeans and they could be the perfect fit. https://www.calvinklein.fr/jean-90s-loose-j30j3216821by

I used to wear big boys but don’t really want to look like a 15yo that has a shit in my pants anymore. The Calvin’s are baggy in the leg but no drop crotch. I’m 6”1 normally a 30 but got a 29 so maybe size down or just belt them tighter to get a wider leg. The denim in the faded black and the blue is really good too. It’s one of those purchases where I am genuinely super super happy with.

Back to sweatpants…

Went to Macy’s today and tried on Champion, Adidas and North Face sweatpants.

Walked away with the North Face.

All were the same thickness but the North Face were the baggiest, with the best fit and (most importantly) the deepest pockets.

I got an XL and they are slightly baggy. If you go up a size they will be very baggy.

A rundown on some Black Friday pants and their skateability... Thanks for all of your advice in this thread, helped me figure out sizing.

Levis 541 Athletic Taper (Stretch) - They're essentially relaxed fit pants at the upper thigh and above (maybe a bit of a dropped crotch?), and a tighter tapered fit at the lower thigh and below. Definitely not a relaxed fit pant at the knee like I was hoping for.

They don't resist movement or twisting, which makes them really solid for skateboarding. However, They are slightly tight at the knees (but it doesn't affect movement when sized up in length). Err on the side of sizing UP the inseam, as that seemed to help the knee tightness and pant mobility more than sizing up the waist. There was some mobility issues with ones that are true to size length, even when sizing up waist, but again more length solved both issues. The potential extra length isn't as huge of an issue due to the taper, especially while wearing shoes. Feels like a slim/tapered fit at the lower thigh and below, but with a comfy upper thigh/butt/crotch area.

The 541 is not most comfortable fit overall since it IS going for that tapered look down low (unless you like the feeling of tighter pants, of course), but its only really uncomfortable when sitting. They look pretty cool to me, way better looking than straight pants but are more comfortable than purely slim jeans. Less unruly than relaxed pants due to the openings staying above your shoe. If that all sounds appealing to you, they skate and move very very well.

A cautious recommendation on the 541 fit (a bit tighter than I imagined), but a really solid recommendation on the cotton/tencel-lyocell/elastaine stretch material. Definitely look into getting that material mix on whatever looser fit you prefer but I don't think this mix is offered in many looser fits sadly.

Levis XX Chino EZ Waist Standard Taper (Stretch) - These things are really soft and comfortable and almost loungey. Feel pretty high quality, but I'm not sure the material will stand up to a ton of skateboarding (not ripstop weave or anything). They are like a thicker Polar Surf (except they actually have a belt loop). The fit is a bit less dorky too, they look nice.

They don't get in the way of movement. Great to skate in. The EZ waist is really comfortable, not just a more generic elastic waist like some other pants.

Almost feels like a lazy around the house pant, but looks good enough for slightly formal wear. Doesn't look like an elastic waist pant in that regard. A slightly relaxed fit with only a slightly tapered end, which I really like for skating. Not tight at all, like the aforementioned pant.

Really solid recommendation overall. Worth checking out if you want a comfy loungey pant that moves with you and skates well. I wish they made it in a more rugged ripstop weave, because that is basically its only downside I can think of.

Carhartt Rugged Flex Relaxed Fit Canvas 5-Pocket Work Pant - These are really solid. Don't move quite as good as the two above pants, but feel very durable as a trade-off. Walk a comfortable line between work pant and casual pant, they sit on your waist rather than above like other Dickies/Carhartt pants. They look nice, and not dorky like a work pant, despite having the durability of a work pant. Move better than the standard 100% cotton Carhartts, and also are slightly lighter weight as a bonus.

I took the advice on here of sizing down the length, and it was a great call. It seems like their pants are all sized to fit over work boots, so keep that in mind. I saw a lot of complaints online about this specific pant (5-pocket flex) being tighter than other Carhartt fits/materials, and that also seems true. I sized up the waist and it fits great.

I like the fit on these more than the Levi's Athletic Taper. I also wouldn't consider these loose fit, but a nice relaxed middleground that feels a bit straight fit in the lower part.

Solid recommendation on these if you want a medium fit, durable pant, that moves alright enough. I'm a bit confused why people choose to skate in the standard 100% cotton ones rather than these or similarly "rugged flex" pants.

Carhartt Loose Fit Canvas Utility Work Pant - A looser lighter fit. They don't flex because they don't need to with their fit and lightweight material. Lighter than the above pants.

However, can be slightly restrictive when lifting knee high though, and I don't think sizing would fix it. This is the best pant I've tried in terms of adding some durability to a lightweight pant. WKND Loosies are lighter weight and move better than these, but these feel more durable as a trade-off.

Definitely size down the length like the above Carhartt pants. However, you can go true size on the waist. I don't think you will really need any extra bagginess. Truly a loose fit pant, but the openings dangling around your ankle aren't a big deal because of how light weight the material is.

Solid recommendation on these if you want something light, loose, but durable.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Treated myself to some Pop Trading DRS jeans. Denim is nice quality and the fit is roomy. Sit decent too. Pricey, but recommended.

Picked up some relaxed fit Carhartts at Ross on sale for $20. Pretty nice fit, I went a size up. They had a bunch of Carhartts, so did Burlington if those are in anyone’s area it might be worth checking out.

Almost feels like a lazy around the house pant, but looks good enough for slightly formal wear. Doesn't look like an elastic waist pant in that regard. A slightly relaxed fit with only a slightly tapered end, which I really like for skating. Not tight at all, like the aforementioned pant.

Really solid recommendation overall. Worth checking out if you want a comfy loungey pant that moves with you and skates well. I wish they made it in a more rugged ripstop weave, because that is basically its only downside I can think of.

Carhartt Rugged Flex Relaxed Fit Canvas 5-Pocket Work Pant - These are really solid. Don't move quite as good as the two above pants, but feel very durable as a trade-off. Walk a comfortable line between work pant and casual pant, they sit on your waist rather than above like other Dickies/Carhartt pants. They look nice, and not dorky like a work pant, despite having the durability of a work pant. Move better than the standard 100% cotton Carhartts, and also are slightly lighter weight as a bonus.

I took the advice on here of sizing down the length, and it was a great call. It seems like their pants are all sized to fit over work boots, so keep that in mind. I saw a lot of complaints online about this specific pant (5-pocket flex) being tighter than other Carhartt fits/materials, and that also seems true. I sized up the waist and it fits great.

I like the fit on these more than the Levi's Athletic Taper. I also wouldn't consider these loose fit, but a nice relaxed middleground that feels a bit straight fit in the lower part.

Solid recommendation on these if you want a medium fit, durable pant, that moves alright enough. I'm a bit confused why people choose to skate in the standard 100% cotton ones rather than these or similarly "rugged flex" pants.

Carhartt Loose Fit Canvas Utility Work Pant - A looser lighter fit. They don't flex because they don't need to with their fit and lightweight material. Lighter than the above pants.

However, can be slightly restrictive when lifting knee high though, and I don't think sizing would fix it. This is the best pant I've tried in terms of adding some durability to a lightweight pant. WKND Loosies are lighter weight and move better than these, but these feel more durable as a trade-off.

Definitely size down the length like the above Carhartt pants. However, you can go true size on the waist. I don't think you will really need any extra bagginess. Truly a loose fit pant, but the openings dangling around your ankle aren't a big deal because of how light weight the material is.

Solid recommendation on these if you want something light, loose, but durable.

Let me know if you have any questions.

What you want are Levi's 550 or 569

i've been skating in nothing but levi 560's i get off ebay, super baggy and tapered at the bottom. they usually only cost like $25 since they've been discontinued. watch out for the black ones tho because they're made different and aren't as baggy as the light blue ones
