Does anyone know of a clothing type that resists thorn punctures and tears? Denim works fairly well in the cooler months but what works in the hot ones?

Thanks for your help.

Carhartt clothing line, sold in the farm stores, is pretty good. The ranchers wear it year round. I need leather chaps for my arms! They are always scratched up!
Not trying to hijack your excellent question, but if someone knows of a fabric that resists thorns and "stick-tight" weed seeds, I would love to hear about it.

I like the Wrangler canvas shirts for thorn and bur resistance; they are a little stiff and loose-fitting and very tough. I also find them cooler than the average long-sleeved shirt.
