Product Test: Snickers Ripstop Holster Trousers & FlexiWork Fleece

For this product review, product tester Ronny Wendlandt slips into two of Snickers Workwear’s latest garments.

Looking smart when arriving at a customer’s site is so important these days, as is the need for comfortable and safe workwear that meets the requirements of the end-user.

To this end, Snickers’ vast range of workwear has always been a favourite of mine, so I jumped at the chance when I was given the opportunity to try out a couple of the brand’s latest garments.


The fit

Having purchased many pairs of various workwear trousers over the years – ranging from engineering blues to jeans – I must say that this pair of Snickers trousers felt very different. Lightweight, comfortable and sleek, they provide a good fit around the waistline and pockets galore. Users will benefit from plenty of well-positioned belt buckles, including three along the back, with a large one in the centre of the back, two along the sides and two along the front to help secure the belt. The pre-bend knees are positioned perfectly and take to the inserts with ease.

Day-to-day use

From day one I got tremendous use from these trousers, and found the pockets to be an absolute god-send during first-fix, where you run cable and fill your pockets with clip, cable cutters and your trusted hammer hanging through the loop, or second-fix (or test and inspection) where you require more tools and hands-free options. When working (whether it’s bending down, up and downstairs or kneeling), these trousers hold their shape thanks to the lightweight stretch material combination without pinching the skin in the back of your knees or on the inner thighs. The tough Cordura material is excellent at keeping dirt and dust away

Safety and protection

These trousers really are built for safety, with the Cordura material and bent knee pockets combined with the option for knee pads and the garments’ stretch material giving flexibility and choice to the user. Reinforced material, tough stitching and strong zips are all hallmarks of the proven workmanship that goes into Snickers’ gear.

Would I recommend?

Yes and yes again! These are a top quality pair of trousers that are fit for any trade professional who is after safety, comfort and flexibility.


The fit

Lightweight, comfortable and in keeping with the latest fashion trends, the Snickers FlexiWork fleece hoodie is designed to keep you warm and stylish on-site.

I found the garment to be really well proportioned; not too long but long enough to cover your lower back when reaching out. There’s also plenty of room provided for extra space from additional clothing. The hoodie is breathable and provides three outside pockets and inside pockets with a strong zip. Thumb holes are featured at the end of the sleeves, giving the option of holding the sleeves in place and keeping your wrist warm.

Would I recommend?

Once again, it’s a ‘yes’ from me! The FlexiWork fleece hoodie is well made, modern looking and boasts a good quality fit and design. In my opinion, this is a great companion for any tradesperson.
