I've taken jeans on my travels, but that is mainly because I have trouble finding trousers that fit. Jeans is pretty much the only thing available in my size and in my wardrobe that doesn't cost a fortune and that is relatively easy to replace.

Given the choice I would rather not take any jeans with me (they are kind of heavy and almost impossible to wash). They make decent cold-weather clothing, but that is their only positive feat.

If you are determined to take jeans take your oldest or your cheapest pair. This way you can throw them away when you get tired of dragging them around.

I'd say take one pair & perhaps a shirt for if you ever want to get a little bit more dressed up .... but I tend to live in combats when I'm away.

I always take jeans away with me, even on longer trips. As you say you wear them all the time, I would definitely take a pair with you. Depending on where you are going, they might be hot and uncomfortable during the day but you'd still get wear out of them in the evenings and nights.

No more jeans for me. I do lightweight combats and splits. Splits are just so good for all weather and very light too. Easy to wash and dry as well.
For me.... 100% never again jeans.

I am for sure taking a pair of jeans with me! Probably a pair of black skinny jeans, slightly less material so may be lighter! (lol) and can be smart if we go somewhere nice, plus the bottoms don't get worn and wet when its raining :)

If its what you feel most comfy in take a pair, some people say NOOOO but they can live in other variables.... ;)
