Great Pants :Light, resistant, flexible

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these pants to replace my old ex-officio hiking pants.

The characteristics I was looking for were: light, resistant to abrasion, capable of retaining warmth yet breathable, flexible but not too baggy (a lot of American models tend to be too baggy for me these days).
I also wanted the pants to have many pockets, yet still be stylish enough for casual wear in the city for my travels around the globe.

These pants fit that description almost perfectly.They are not as baggy as the Ramparts from Arcteryx, so they are better for my intended use - but this comes at a price - they are more expensive.

I am using them right now for an extended trip, and they are so wonderful that I have just ordered a second pair. They are very light,so you can carry many pairs without adding much weight - a welcome characteristic both for backpacking adventures and standard overseas tourism.

The Light carbide color I got look very nice.
