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.
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.

Nice breezy material. I agree that the back pocket zipper does "bite" when sliding your hand deep inside to get your wallet especially on the back of the hand. My main issue is with the inseam lengths available. 30" 33" 33.5 " (huh why not 34" inches like most other pant manufacturers) 35.5". Your sizing schemes are a bit odd to me. a 36" waist and 34" inseam is fairly common and would work just fine with me. Otherwise a comfortable summer season pant.

I like these pants in many ways - they are a good summer weight soft texture and fit well however I have one problem. The rear pockets are deep and have zippers. My billfold tends to ride too low (so I wind up sitting on it) and the zipper tends to "bite" your hand when you reach down to get it.
