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.
Excellent all-purpose travel pant - you get the technical features without an overly technical look. I just took a trip to Peru. Fabric and weight was good for both the humid coast and cool mountains. I also like the X-treme pants but the Backcountry Khakis kept me from looking too much like a gringo-tourist-trekker and were acceptable for a nice restaurant. The only "technical" visuals are a slight dart at the knee and the zippered pockets. Fabric texture is interesting and the cut has some room without being baggy. The slate color is grey with a bit of brownish/greenish cast (as opposed to blue-grey). 32 Tall fits about like 32x34 jeans. Lack of velcro or heel reinforcements means you could hem easily. Best endorsement - I'll put money down for another pair.

Great pants to wear for international travel. I really like these.

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.
