Vollebak's 100 Year Pants Promise to Outlast Every Clothing Item You Own

Vollebak, the same clothing company behind the world's first graphene jacket, has developed a pair of trousers built to outlast every item in your closet. The 100 Year Pants promise to be tough enough to endure in the harshest conditions, and soft enough to wear while loafing around your home.

As Fast Company reports, the secret to the 100 Year Pants's durability lies in their three-layer design. The outer later is water-resistant and can stand up to decades of wear-and-tear, while the innermost layer is made from a synthetic material that doesn't burn or melt. In between is a fireproof layer that automatically expands when exposed to extreme heat, creating a barrier between your skin and the flames. The pants are also outfitted with four spacious pockets, adjustable ankle belts, and leg vents you can zip open on hot days.

The material was originally designed for soldiers, and it's manufactured in Switzerland. But unlike typical military or space gear, the 100 Year Pants work just as well as lounge wear as active wear. The outer layer feels like sweatpants and the inner layer feels like cotton on your skin, while the fireproof middle layer allows the garment to breath. The pants are also designed to stretch with your body whether you're climbing a mountain or practicing yoga.

Vollebak has experience designing clothes meant to last longer than the average wearer. In 2017, the company released its 100 Year Hoodie, made from a softer version of Kevlar, for $300. At $645, the 100 Year Pants are an even more serious investment, but they may be worth it if you plan on making them the last pair of pants you buy for awhile.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.
