"Great construction, nice design. Not sure if I'm much cooler, but I enjoy the comfort and added pockets"

"The material is great. Repels water and is very easy to wash. I ordered your cool chef pants about three years ago they were a lighter material. I do miss that lightweight material but would still recommend the cool chef cargo pants to all chefs"

"Very utile. I have worn A LOT of Chef pants over the years with a lot of bells and whistles, but these are everything they were described to be. Cool, comfortable, light-weight....and I love the large draw string at the waist. Nothing worse than a stubborn knot when you've been holding it for three hours on the hot line.....!"

"I am about 5'9 and 170#. I feel the pants are too long and the vents too low on the leg. I also think there should be vents in other locations like the crotch. The fit at the waist was perfect for me out of the bag at around 33 waist. The left pocket had a rip on the inside and it's my personal opinion that the pockets are too deep. The pants are light and look great."

Crazy length
Apr 29, 2017
"So i got my cookcool cargo pants today and was really excited, but when i went to try them on the waist fit fine but the length was crazy, like covering up my whole foot. I get my pants about 30 in length these and to be about 36 or maybe even 38 in length. #unhappy :("

"These are probably the best pants I have worn. Comfortable plenty of pockets. Easy to clean. However when you order go a size smaller than what you think you are. You’ll be very happy with them. "

Great Pants
Oct 10, 2017
"I really like these pants. I had them hemmed because they are pretty long. One thing you have to remember when washing them make sure all the velcro is closed because the waist string will get caught and stuck on the velcro pockets the string gets all wrapped around your pants in the washer and dryer. Great pants!

Great Quality, but...
Aug 31, 2017
"The quality is great. These pants are durable, and the vents really work. They arrived about 6 inches too long and I had to have them hemmed. That changes the cost as well as the location of the vents..."

Improvement needed
Jun 13, 2017
"I love my cook cool pants, especially the zipper fly, but the cheap hook&loop (Velcro) or the awful stitching needs to go.. I have had these pants for a little over 2 weeks,and they are already starting to fall apart in the pocket(s) other than that, they're wonderful."

"I've have had these pants for a month and am very pleased with them. Not only are they comfortable and cool, they are definitely worth every penny. I have already spilled grease on them and the stains came out without treating them before washing."
Cheffrey, verified buyer
Length is long
May 19, 2017
"These are a great fitting pant and help keep me cool in the kitchen. Everything fits great, the only issue for me is the length, however I understand that the length is meant to fit multiple body styles but maybe a normal length and the addition of a long for those taller people, I'm 6ft and the pants are still 2 inches long on me.
