Rustler Jeans Review

These classic regular fit jeans are constructed of 11.5 oz cotton for exceptional abrasion resistance and color retention, providing great value.

These 100% cotton jeans are an ideal solution for dads who wear out jeans quickly. Sitting comfortably at their natural waist, these pair boast double stitched outseams with bartacked stress points for added comfort.


This pair of jeans features tough fabric that will withstand wear and tear while remaining comfortable and breathable, making them perfect for working outdoors during hotter summer days. Seams have been double stitched at stress points to reduce breakage; heavy duty zippers ensure frequent usage without risk.

Rustler jeans did not perform as well in our durability tests as some of the other models we examined, but they still fared quite well. They held up well during both our puncture test (not failing until 18.2 pounds of pressure was applied) and abrasion test; however, their fabric began fraying after four swipes with 180-grit sandpaper while pairs from Duluth Double Flex and Best Made performed much longer in these two areas.

Keep in mind when considering this brand that it is owned by VF Corporation, which also owns other leading workwear brands like Dickies and Timberland as well as merino wool brands such as Smartwool and Icebreaker.

Rustler Classic Regular 5 Pocket jeans were an outstanding performer in our fabric abrasion tests, standing up well against repeated sandpaper rubs. Unfortunately, however, the jeans failed in seam and zipper tests; Duluth Double Flex jeans performed best while Ariat Rebar M4 and Kirkland jeans tied for last place in this category.


Rustler Classic Regular Fit Jeans offer great style and value, available in multiple sizes with double stitched stress points that stand up well during our durability tests, withstanding multiple swipes of 180 grit sandpaper without showing much wear at the hem and knee area.

These jeans were able to withstand the abrasiveness of sandpaper without suffering wear-and-tear damage, yet failed in our flexibility test. Their fit proved too restrictive during squatting movements and may prove uncomfortable if working in this position for extended periods.
