    Rough and tough.

    The drive from Seattle to Anchorage is an adventure in and of itself, so the next time you decide to tackle the Alcan Highway, make sure you wear your ultra-rugged, super-durable Kavu Chilliwack Pants. Should you decide to stop for a hike near Hope, BC, the pants’ sturdy cotton canvas fabric provides a tough barrier between your skin and the thorny Devil’s Club underbrush. When it comes time to nap next to the sign-post forest in Watson Lake, YK, the Chilliwacks’ pajama-like feel provides serious comfort as you cram your tired body in the back of your pickup truck. And even though you’ve already been at it for three days, the Chilliwacks don’t mind pushing through another night to knock out that long stretch between Whitehorse and the Alaskan border.

    Great Pant, Runs Small

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    These pants are a very durable thick pant, but at the same time very comfortable. I would suggest ordering a size bigger than what your normal waist size would be. This does not mean the pant is tight or "skinny legged." I have minimal hours in them, but I know I will reach for them regularly. I would also love to add that I had to return mine for next size up and Austin My "GearHead" made this extremely painless! hats off to the customer service I was provided!! Had the correct size to my house 2 DAYS LATER with a return label, does not get any better! Thanks

    Skinny Legs

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Height: 6'
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Only a model would have skinny legs to fit these. Anyone athletic enough to ski or bike will not fit the thighs.

    • Fit: Runs small

    Love these pants once you beat the he!! out of them. I am between a L and XL (I am 6'1" 220...with thighs of a NFL linebacker)so I recently bought large, didn't fit, returned them. Owned 2 pair (L) and have had them for about 4 years and they are in the normal rotation because they are broken in (but a little short so I don't wear them as much).

    Also, buyer beware. Make sure the color you choose is the color you really want. Tobacco is brown, not normal khaki color so that may mislead you as different websites will display the wrong picture for the color names.

    All in all, good quality pants. Just be aware of what you're buying.

    Killer pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Absolutely love these pants. Ordered another pair as soon as I wore my first pair one time. Canvas material is tough, but comfortable. I wear these to the bouldering gym because they have a little give. 6'2", 190 lbs, waist size 33 and the large fits well.

    Comfortable pants, annoying velcro

      Soft but durable pants. Very comfortable. They have velcro patches on the back pockets to keep them secured. The velcro's really strong (maybe just my pair?) and both ripped off after a few months from attaching/detaching to use pockets. I actually like them better without the velcro. I'm 6'1" 175 lbs and usually wear 32x32. The mediums are on the shorter side, but fit well.

      Comfortable pants, annoying velcro

      Soft, comfy, and good!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Some restating of what others have said. I'm almost the definition of M (in my mind); 32 " waist, 30" inseam, big thighs and butt. I got the small, it fits very well. Yes the back pockets look weird, but 1) my wife likes them 2) I can move the wallet around so I'm not perched on it while driving. I find them to be very soft and yet strong, and they have taken over from my similar Cloudveil pants. Overall, pretty darn happy although I haven't yet had the crotch splitting that others have noted.

      Wearing them right now

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Good, solid work pants. The material is nice and thick, great for work or outside fun. The gusseted crotch allows for better ease of movement. The only issue I have is that the rise seems to be a little short. I'm not a plumber but these pants seem to think I am if you know what I mean. Overall, pretty nice.

      Nice pants for biker thighs

        I have worm chilliwacks for over a decade, they are my favorite pants by far, there have been some changes in the cloth, originally they were a heavy duck canvas, now the cloth seems to be softer. If you like pants that are already broken in, then the new cloth will feel nice right out of the box. The weak link in the pants is the crotch, you need to be sure and not hike in them with a wet crotch or they will wear out quicker. They can be patched easilly enough. These pants are apparently being discontinued, which is really sad because I have never found a pant that fits so well. I have a 35" waist and a 33" inseam, the XL fits me baggy with a nice shoe top length. I still have my original pair, dark green, they are faded to a pale green now, thread worn, patched in the crotch, legs, hems, I only take them out for special occassions, I don't think I'll ever throw them out :)

        Not a fan of the custom crotch venting either

          When I bought these I was pretty stoked. The canvass material is surprisingly stout for a $35 pant off S&C. Also happy with the brown bear color.However, the honeymoon was over real quick.I bought these in a large, which fits well length-wise, but the waist is quite a bit too large. Usually this can be remedied with a nice sturdy belt, however this pant is totally incompatible with belts, and its reliance on the thin and plastic buckled contraption it has around the waist is an inadequate measure to hold up such a heavy pair of pants. This probably would have been less of a problem with a medium.I also had a small hole wear through the crotch within the first couple of days. Not a fan of it.The back pockets look so unnatractive that you wonder how they ever came up with the design. If you like having people gaze at your butt all day- these are your pants- just don't be surprised if their stare turns into a look of empathetic bewilderment.


            My first pair of chilliwack pants lasted me about 2 years until my wallet wore a hole through. I patched it, and kept wearing them until the entire seat began to wear through. Considering how much I abused them they held up pretty great. My second pair lasted me a few weeks until the crotch began to loose threads and the hole began to grow. Huge disappointment, quality of pants has declined, hellooooo mountain khakis

            Good Fit, Great Price

              I bought my pair of XL Chilliwacks on SAC, and couldn't be happier. I wear 38x34 normally, and they fit well in both directions, not too short on me. They seem to be well constructed and the material is strong yet comfortable. They are definitely fit for working or hiking through brush, though they are probably too heavy for normal backpacking
