Pants Engineered for Everyday Adventure

From the tarmac to the trail, pants have made long strides in their versatility and design. For years the most groundbreaking design for travel and the outdoors were convertible pants that zip-off into shorts, which by today’s standards could be considered a pair of “dad pants”. Today when it comes to traveling and adventuring in the wild, there’s a whole new host of options for pants that are built to perform with stylish good looks.

Innovation with fabrics and technology have been paired with functional modern design to help create this new category of pants over the past few years. New materials and durable water-repellent (DWR) treatments help the performance of these pants due to their water-shedding and quick-drying properties, as well as the overall protection and durability they provide. These pants are more comfortable than ever due to their lightweight nature, breathability, added flexibility, and overall design with gussets and articulated knees that provide a wider range of motion for movement.

Many of these pants offer additional organization and security often with extra, hidden, or zippered pockets to protect your belongings from falling out or theft. Many are also built tough with top of the line zippers, reinforced stitching, and rivets and bartack support. Some are even UPF rated, which is a rating system designed to measure clothing and the amount of UVA and UVB radiation from the sun that penetrates the fabric and reaches the skin.

Designed to be multi-functional, travel and outdoor pants are now designed with modern fits and styling. Versatile enough to provide protection in the outdoors, comfortable for long drives, and fashionable enough for the workplace. We put some pants through the paces and here is what we came to find.


HIGHLIGHTS: A feature-packed travel pant with 4-way stretch, that is breathable, water-resistant and uses stain-resistant fabric. A looser, modern fit with integrated back and side secured pockets, dedicated phone pocket, card/coin/pen pockets, venting and a removable shoelace belt. Available in several colors.
