I'm sure everyone has seen the commercials so I'm curious if anyone has given any of their products a try. 

 

Specifically, I have been looking to remove the 5.11 tuxedo from my wardrobe as much as possible and this company's products seem like they might work well for not screaming tactical while still being functional.  Primarily I have been looking at their pants and their coats.

I've been planning to buy a pair of their jeans for a while. Everyone I know who has their stuff loves it. And it's definitely not tactical. The guys I know who wear Duluth Trading Co stuff are all big ol farm boys who love to hunt and fish.

Their Ballroom Jeans seem to be the most popular.

I know guys that wear their clothing. I have looked into buying some, but it's a little pricey. Not to mention if I buy a size and it runs big or small having to mail it in to exchange it.

Have a couple pairs of firehose pants. If you've ever worn Carhartts, there's not much difference

My friends wife is a mail person and she wears insulated ones when it gets cold.  She swears by how well they keep her warm and she doesn't worry about ruining them.

I will say it does come with a caveat, they are NOT flattering to her figure.

Forget it then. If I can't show off my curves, I'm not wearing them. Guess I'll just have to stick with yoga pants.

Now there is a picture I did not want in my mind. Thanks. Now I must think of stuff like slaughtering pigs and cutting down trees, and shooting a 50 cal to make myself feel more manly.

Quality vs quantity. I have a bunch of their shirts, love em. They have a store in Sioux Falls, SD. I've been able to look over their product line and I will be getting more in the near future.

I hey have top quality for sure. The jeans and fire hose pants wear great
As to returns if they don't fit right, they send you a return sticker right in the package
They do have a no bull return guarantee. You don't like it send it back no questions

I have the firehose work pants and the lightweights. They ran very true to size but for California, the firehose pants are way too much. I have been using them as riding pants on my dirt bikes as they have knee pad pockets and I had some hard shell inserts from another set of riding pants. The lighter color is good for the sun and they are wearing like 600 denier nylon. The only thing about them is that you have to remember to take everything out of the pockets or you get bruises in those shapes if you get off the bike hard. I'll get another pair if I ever need to. The lightweights are my favorites for everything but work. I've had them about a year and they have done everything from canyoneering to trimming trees and they are very comfortable, even in the heat. They are about the same weight as my vertex covert pants and the crotch gussets give you plenty of flexibility. Especially important during my Yoga workouts... Not.

Their Buck-naked underwear are fantastic. That and some jeans are all I've bought from them clothing-wise. Returned the jeans since they were cut more like mom jeans but have heard good things from friends re the firehose pants.

Just made my first purchase from Deluth. The Armachillo underwear based off a friends recommendation. Haven't tried them yet, but anything with microscopic jade impregnated in has to be good right?

When I finally wear them, they will officially be the most valuable thing on me. Sweet

I've been a huge fan of them for years.  Some of their tools are a little bit trinkety, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have some of it in my EDC (tweezers on key ring).

 

Before I talk product, I don't buy anything there unless it is on sale.  They have quarterly, or more often, 20% off sales, and they have seasonal close outs with huge discounts.

 

Their clothing though, I swear by.  No sweat underwear are all I wear now, very comfortable.  Wicking undershirts are great too.  I had a tailor trim up some of their cool max polos, because they're sized for large bellies.  Their duluth flex firehose work pants, and firehose work pants are great.  I get colors other than khaki so I don't look so 5.11.  I wore 2 pairs for about a year solid, and got a hole in one knee.  I thought it shouldn't have a hole, and they honored the No Bull guarantee; so they exchanged the 2 pairs, no questions asked, but for refunds over a year old, they send cash, so I used it to get 2 new pairs.  I also love their wind proof fleece jackets, warmest fleece I've ever had.  Haven't tried their packs though to be honest, but a couple duffles I've had for over ten years.

I'm a big fan. In fact, as I type this I have on their undershirt and boxer briefs from the Buck Naked line. Love that stuff! I also love the firehose wallet, perfect setup for a wallet in my opinion. As mentioned before, get on their email list and wait for the sales, they are constantly happening. 


Last wish? I wish... You had... More time.
