Whether you're out there fishing in the heat or going on a multiday hike, you want lightweight pants that give your legs full protection but don't trap your sweat. Our Bone Flats Pants provide maximum UPF 30+ sun-blocking protection, moisture-wicking comfort, super ventilation, and best of all,they dry in minutes. The durable, buttery-soft fabric is made with featherweight 1.5-oz Duralite nylon and polyester material. With 27-inch, breathable mesh panels running down the length of the inseams and outseams, you have the perfect air-flow solution to heat buildup that can make the most patient fisherman or thru-hiker want to call it a day. Additional features include: elastic at sides of waist for easy fit; articulated knees for comfort and mobility; and reinforced pocket opening and a zippered back pocket.
Reason for Being: Originally designed to be worn fishing the flats in warm waters, the idea behind this pant is to be as lightweight and breathable as a pair of shorts while providing much needed sun protection. These have since been picked up as a go-to piece for long trail hikers because of their durability and breathability.
Fabric: 1.5 ounce Duralite nylon is lighter than most of our pants. These are designed to feel like feathers and breath like you’re not wearing them.
UV Protection: Carries a sun protection rating of UPF 30+.
Side Vents: 27” of mesh ventilation runs from outer thigh to calf and another strip runs down the inner thigh, making sure that you feel every breeze on a hot day.
Please think about adding Bone Flats pants in black and olive drab. As the photographer serving the forensic and division needs of the NH State Police Forensic Lab I wear these pants all summer long. They are good looking and extremely comfortable and well made for hot summer days. Although I own the pants in Bone and Khaki they would be much more appropriate in black and/or olive drab. Plus it would add more color possibilities to justify more pairs to my spouse.
I love the durability and the utility of all my RailRiders products as well as the casual good looks that make them appropriate for almost any occasion. I have even received a compliment on my Eco-Mesh pants from the Colonel of the State Police during a swearing in ceremony in his office.

I want to thank Pat and John for answering my questions. Two tennis balls fit in the front pocket with room to spare. I did a lot of research on the internet and believe these pants to be the best I saw when it comes to ventilation and being a very light weight fabric. Hope you come up with a long sleeve shirt with the same ventilation. I'll be buying the khaki color next. I didn't give the pants the highest rating as I' m waiting to see how they wear. Thanks again for the help on the phone, Ron
