While many painters to prefer to wear pants for full coverage and protection, shorts are a great alternative for easier mobility. The Portwest Painter’s Work Pants have a tightened elastic waist to eliminate the need for a belt. This helps also with mobility, as a belt won’t get in the way of bending over. They have 8 large pockets that can store various tools in each to help keep everything within range. The pockets have covers as well, so they can be sealed to keep items in there place. The shorts are a hook-and-bar style closure, so they keep tight during jobs. The knee pad pockets also help with comfort for those paint jobs in low places. These are a great pair of shorts and are ideal for summer jobs or anyone who wants to have additional mobility while painting.
Overall We'd Say
These are the least expensive pants on our list, so if you’re looking for affordable painter pants, these are it. They are pre-shrunk but we still recommend going up a size. There are ton of pockets on these things so you can store many tools and save multiple trips back to the van.
