  • Buying pants

    It's such a pain trying to locate pants that are comfortable, fit right and look decent enough. Finding them with elastic or stretchy waistbands, no back pockets or belt loops is even harder although they can be removed without too much difficulty if need be. Does anybody have a good lead on where to find some? Thx.

    Why no belt loops or back pockets? Regular pants have served me well since injury. The only problem I ever had was an abrasion on my sacrum from thick, stiff jean cloth. People have been victims of rivets, leather patches and other adornments. Other than those kinds of hazards, I do not see anything to fear from regular pants. As a quad, however, I do not know if mine are comfortable or not. As wongas I do not get AD when I put them on they are comfortable to me. lol

        Thx SCI-Nurse.

        55 - belt loops and pockets can pose sources for pressure issues. I had a bad one once from sitting on a pocket button. My wife removes them now.

          Yeah, I think the female SCI'ers have more choices in this area with the popularity of yoga pants, jeggings, leggings and maternity jeans.

          Might be worth just buying what you like and bringing them over to a tailor to make adjustments. They have the heavy duty machines that can handle jean if needed too. We use tailors quite often and they are surprisingly reasonable.

            Like, KLD suggested, IZ Adaptive has some great options. Most comfortable pants I've worn since my injury. Even better than Rolli-Moden.

              For jeans in my opinion endless abilities are the best (I also like their camo pants). For work pants I like IZ Adaptive, they also have some gray camo sweats I use for sleepware which are nice.

              FWIW, I have bought jeans from USA, IZ and EA. I have an order with Rolling Elephant's but havn't sent in my measurment's yet.

                Walmart just started carrying a brand of men's wheelchair jeans; online only. I think price was $30-$40...cheap for wheelchair specific pants

                    Faded Glory - Walmart branded jeans work great for me. Relaxed fit ones. Hold a pair up and you can see how the rear is higher than the front. I have no issues sitting with them on. Also, I have never had issues with back pockets

                      I've had pretty good luck with Rolli-Moden. I've used their ordinary slacks and also a model of slacks that kind of feel and look a bit like sweatpants (although I think they might have a slightly different name for them). The sweatpants ones are now the ones I use because they are easy to put on, the others I had trouble getting on and off after a while. But it's a good company, their pants last a long time and work well.

                        I bought an awesome pair of Dolce & Gabbana jeans off ebay for $60 the other day...thing is they are two sizes above my old levis (on the tag) but they seem a whole size below my levis...the sizing is a frikkin mess with these fancy designer jeans.

                        My wife helps me into them but jesus they are narrow, they can be done up but jesus...lucky I didn't pay the original retail...gulp...of $350!!. I think their bizarre hit n miss sizing is the reason there are so many of these jeans on ebay for next to nothing.

                          As a quad I refuse to succumb psychologically to warm up pants or anything elastic, my caregiver picked me up those maroon five dude jeans and now it's the only thing I wear. I've only worn jeans for the past 10 years. Though being the one who puts them on me daily I'm sure he'd prefer the loose warm up pant fit instead. I think I actually went down a size since my accident but there are times when my gut fills up with too much gas that I need to have my pants unbuttoned. Otherwise, feeling comfortable or comfortable with the jeans is purely a state of mind.
