You have places to explore, east and west, north and south, so let's first steer you in the right fashion direction. Our new Backcountry Khakis are made with soft-textured, lightweight Allure nylon, a super tough fabric that drapes well and provides years of use and abuse. With a flat-front design, gusseted crotch, and articulated tailoring behind the knees for ease of movement, these pants are ideal for rugged outdoor play or everyday wear. A fixed waist ensures cozy fit, while the two zippered rear pockets are perfect to secure your valuables. Completely wrinkle free, these pants dry in minutes, and pack incredibly small. If you need pants with some attitude, these will deliver the good
Reason for Being: These are designed to live up to RailRiders specifications on light adventures while still looking good enough to wear out to dinner. The Backcountry Khakis are a blend of function and style, tough yet refined.
Fabric: Oxford textured “Allure” nylon. Think super fine, super lightweight, nylon Carhardt. Flexible, comfortable, and tough.
Strength In Simplicity: These are not our most technical pants, but rather they bridge the gap between “outdoors wear” and “fashion.” Try to find another pair of pants you can wear straight from the outdoors to the office.
These are my favorite. I have them in every colored offered. I wear them year round (including winter in Michigan - though I wear smart wool under them in winter). I've worn them back packing cross country skiing canoeing from Hawaii to the Arctic...and to the office. Great travel pants. Pack light. Tough/durable. Look good with a sport coat and tie or with a t-shirt and life jacket. I replaced all my Dockers with these. I wish they came in some darker colors too - navy blue black dark gray- then I'd never have to buy any other pants.

These pants are Great The fit is accurate. The way the waist closure button is sewn on will never fail. My favorite feature however is the use of zippers (with adequate tabs to grip) instead of Velcro for pocket closures. I like Velcro for certain applications but accessing a back pocket wearing liner gloves is a pain when it is used. Zippers are much better and also provide a neater appearance over time.

I have all four colors. Recently I bought four new pair because I have lost weight and needed a 36" waist The 38" inch waist pants were a few years old but showed remarkably little wear.These are really good looking the zippered pockets are really good security when traveling. I have other Rail Riders pants for backcountry travel.but these could handle that too. My only suggestion would be to add a pocket for an iPhone.
