What to you all do to prevent leg cuff damage? Or is this a moot point? Every pair of pants I've bought somehow get dragged around when walking to and from cars or tromping around the lodge = torn and frayed, broken cuff zips, etc.The only option I can think of is to constantly flip up the cuff when walking around, which looks stupid. Or, buying a tight pair of pants, which I do not want to do.

A distant friend once told me he brought his pants to a tailor and had a tough Carhartt-like material sown into the cuffs. Anyone ever do this?

I guess that was three options....oh well...
Both my Burton pants and my Ride pants have leg lifts at the back of the leg which allow you to hinch up the bottom of your pants a little to avoid any cuff wear and tear. Works very well. I recommend both brands.
