Another six months have passed since my original 6 Month Review of the Thunderbolt Jeans so I thought I’d drop in with a quick follow-up.
They’re still going strong. I still wear these almost every day and they still perform and look as good as ever. Being so impressed with the first six months I’ve been more tough on them over the winter months. I’ve played with my son in the snow, sledding, snowblowed the driveway after storms (so much better doing this than in my old denim jeans!), did yard work, tore down an old swing set and helped friends move. I’m at the point now that I don’t consciously think about whether I’m being too hard on them and they always come away looking no worse for wear.
I tossed my last couple of denim jeans in the basement just to get them out of the closet and I don’t think I’ll be needing them for any reason at all. I anticipate at some point they’ll be donated or given away.
The pockets are still sturdy and strong with no holes or signs of wear. The bottom cuffs don’t show any signs of fraying either. The belt loops were my main concern originally but amazingly they haven’t stretched out or come undone.
There’s really not much more to say which is exactly they way I like it. These jeans are amazing. They hold up fantastic and I’m confident they’ll look the same come this time next year.
