Introduction » Usability Problems Conclusion
These pants feel the same as all the other Dockers I own, even
with all my gadgets in the pockets. I did a two day test of Dockers pants. Day
one was devoted to my old pair of khaki Dockers. Day two was the day I strut my
stuff in my new Dockers Mobile Pants. Each day, I carried the same objects
around with me: wallet, Nokia 8290 cell phone, Visor Edge, Stowaway Keyboard,
keys, ID holder, change, sunglasses, and the hands free headset for my cell
Day one was rough, I usually never carry this much in my pockets; in fact, I
have never carried a stowaway in my pocket. However, I wanted to overload myself
to see which pants handled the load better. With my old standard Dockers, things
were difficult. Not only did I look strange with huge hips, but it was difficult
to find anything in my pockets. Sitting was also a nightmare; I had troubles
getting comfortable with all this “extra baggage”.
Day two was much better. I started the day like any other, loading my pockets:
Hands free Adapter
Left Seam Pocket:
All the problems I faced with the other pants went away. The pockets felt a lot
less full, and diving into my pockets to find things was a breeze.
I tried many objects, different PDAs, accessories, visors with modules,
different phones, and more. The general consensus was, the pants really work!
They made organization easier, and kept my pockets from feeling too full.
The main benefits of these pants are security, safety, and
organization. Security is an important feature. It is difficult to loose you
cell phone when it is zipped up in a pocket. As long as you keep your pocket
zipped, you have no chance of your device accidentally falling out. These
pants also keep your devices, cash, credit cards ect. secure from theft. All
of the pockets are zipped shut and hidden from plain view. If someone wanted
to steal your cell phone, he would first have to find the pockets and then
un-zip them to get at your property.
Safety for your devices is also key. By safety I mean, physical
protection. We pay a lot for out Visors, cell phones, sunglasses ect. Then,
we abuse them by putting them in our pockets with other scratchy objects
such as keys. With Mobile Pants, you can separate your devices from your
keys and protect them from becoming scratched or smudged.
Dockers Mobile Pants aid organization as well. Now, objects can
be organized by pockets. Meaning you will never have to search through your
pockets to find your keys again.
