The Bushwacker Weatherpant with Insect Shield is the newest addition to our famous tough pants collection. A full featured pant with a great fit. A balistically tough outdoor pant yet refined enough for hanging out in those Palo Alto juice bars. Features include: Insect Shield technology to ward off the Mosquitoes, black flies, chiggers, ticks and no-seeums. Tough 2ply 3oz Duralite Nylon with Railtex reinforced seat, knees and back of ankle, Deep front pockets with side security zip pocket, 2 zippered back pockets, arcticulated cell phone pocket on right leg, cross-quad zippered pockets for easy access and storage, 2" belt loops, removable belt and a D-ring attached to the front belt loop for attaching keys, carabiners, etc. If there was a perfect pant for the Barkley Marathon or the death race in Vermont, this pant would be it!
Reason For Being: We wanted to revamp our old Weatherpant design, so we took off the elastic cuff, added thigh pockets and a few other small features, but without sacrificing any of the Weatherpants’ legendary durability. These things will keep you happy bushwhacking through anything.
Fabric: Our standard 2 ply, 3 ounce nylon, which gives the best possible combination of durability, breathability, quick drying, and comfort.
Small Stuff: We added taller reinforcements, a new cell phone pocket, thigh pockets, a plastic D-ring to attach accessories, and tweaked the fit to create our most popular pair of pants yet.
RAILTEX Reinforcement: Railtex is the reinforcement nylon we put on most of our pants, similar to Cordura®. It is highly abrasion resistant and water resistant and is a second layer of defense. We reinforce the highest-impact areas of your pant: the knees, ankles, and butt, to ensure they last forever.
Insect Shield: 100% safe treatment for your clothing that will repel harmful insects and ticks. Permethrin is a new industry standard for bug repellant and the amount contained in our treated clothing is guaranteed to be safe for adults, children, and even pets. Effective up to 70 washes.
I expected these to be a bit heavier--they are a little light for bushwacking. That said they are very comfortable in the recent hot weather. Fit was good (5ft 10in 200lb male). The included belt is pretty useless. It's hard to get it back into the belt loops because its not very stiff and it twists easily. I took mine off and use a more robust belt.
