Blaklader introduces new CORDURA denim work pants
Blaklader is redefining a category by introducing their take on classic denim work pants. The Blaklader 1659 CORDURA denim work pants are four times stronger than regular denim and include features such as large cargo pockets and internal kneepad pockets.
In standard Blaklader pants, the functionality like external kneepad pockets, two-tone CORDURA reinforcements and the external pockets are clearly visible. The CORDURA denim takes a quieter approach while still keeping the core functionality. Instead of durable reinforcements, the base material is made from a blend of cotton denim fibers and the ultra-durable CORDURA.
The pants include other functional features like the kneepad pockets, except they are sewn inside the pants, offering a modern take on a classic workwear preference. Tool-bearing carpenter’s pockets are also located on the legs of the pants.
Blaklader has made its name developing workwear built specifically to benefit tradespeople. The CORDURA denim 1659 workpants is no exception. With a loose fit and comfortable feel, they seem like a nice pair of jeans but made to withstand the toughest work environments. The pants combine a modern appearance with workday functionality, efficient design and craftsman quality. Other functionality includes:
- Internal kneepad pockets
- Button fly
- Loops, one with D ring
- Inner leg seam with triple stitching
- Leg pocket with inside ruler and pen pockets, leg pocket with flap and telephone pocket, leg pocket with zipper

Blaklader has developed FR workpants that have contractors rethinking workwear. The1636 FR pants are tested and compliant with NFPA 70E and are HRC 2 with an 11.7 calories/cm2 arc rating. Professionals are not only protected from arc flash exposure; the inclusion of built-in kneepads and exterior tool pockets provide added protection throughout the day while saving time and trips to the toolbox.
Since 1959, Blaklader has been using high-quality fabrics and durable materials to produce quality workwear for all types of tradesmen. The 1636 pants are Blaklader’s first step into US approved FR products. Electricians and other tradesmen exposed to arc flash can now have workwear that meets the ASTM FR certifications with the functionality and durability of the Blaklader brand. Blaklader garments are designed to last longer and withstand more washes than the average garment. The durability and functionality of Blaklader sets this workwear apart from other workwear.
Core features of Blaklader workwear include:
- Two exterior utility pockets for tools and fasteners which can be hidden when not in use
- Reinforced fabric in high-wear areas
- Bellowed front and back pockets for easy tool carrying
- Pencil pocket and secure wallet pocket
- Raised hammer loop
- Reinforced ruler pocket
- Quality YKK zipper
- Mobile phone pocket
- Triple stitching on all major seams

A new line of highly durable, functional, high-visibility (hi-vis) workwear is hitting the market. Workwear manufacturer Blaklader has made its name using quality fabrics and skilled craftsmanship to produce long-lasting efficient workwear for all types of tradesmen. Now, they’re stepping into the realm of hi-vis clothing with shorts, pants, jackets and vests that meet American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 107 requirements for mining, airlines, government construction, road construction and more.
Because ANSI 107 approved workwear is such a common requirement, purchasing officers commonly buy cheaper clothing items to cut the expense. But Blaklader is shedding new light on the workwear budget: Higher quality fabrics and reflective tape last longer and look better than discount alternatives. Blaklader garments are designed to last longer and withstand more washes than the average hi-vis garment. Toward the end the lifecycle, other garments look faded and dark, leading to safety concerns and an unprofessional appearance. Blaklader’s workwear features high-quality fabrics and 3M® reflective tape that stand out in a crowd and keep crews safe for the long haul.
The hi-vis line consists of workpants, shorts, vests and jackets that all meet various ANSI 107 classes. Even the industry-leading X1600 workpants are available in hi-vis. The ANSI 107 Class 1 compliant pants use CORDURA® leg shields that extend up to the thigh and down to the shin for added jobsite protection. CORDURA is a highly durable fabric made by Invista and commonly used in tactical gear and outdoor sports clothing.
In all Blaklader pants, kneepad inserts fit under CORDUA on the leg. Other jobsite functionality includes exterior utility pockets for carrying fasteners and tools without a tool belt and triple-stitched seams that are guaranteed for the life of the garment. If seams tear, Blaklader will replace the garment free of charge.
Jackets are ANSI Class 3 and wind and waterproof, built with multiple layers for warmth, breathability and protection. Both the winter jacket and the shell jacket include chest pockets with waterproof zippers and convenient arm pockets.
Blaklader also offers shorts and vests that meet ANSI class 2 with durable fabric blends that stand up to the toughest conditions.
