Are you really interested in long pants for the desert, jungle, or backcountry that are superlight, tough, and airy? With the Eco-Mesh Pants, you now have amazing temperatureregulating features. Constructed out of two-ply, 3-oz. Duralite nylon fabric, the tricked-out elements are 27-inch side zippers concealed behind vertical bands, which provide air flow to that one troubling hot spot encountered by most hikers: the crotch. Behind the tucked-away zippers are soft-mesh panels whose duty is to funnel air in and around your nether regions. With the zippers closed, the abrasion- resistant Eco-Mesh Pants resemble a traditional pair of khakis. Because the fabric is now treated with Insect Shield® technology, you have protection against mosquitoes, biting flies, and ticks. The fit is enhanced by elastic side panels at the waist, and sports two on-seam front pockets, 2 zippered back pockets. Super packable, with a 15-minute maximum drying time. Includes a new side-zippered security pocket.

Eco-Mesh are my "must have" hiking pants. I can ventilate with side zips roll them up or both. Insect shield is a must for me. For light weight fabric they are quite tough and long wearing They also dry quite quickly so I don't mind taking them out in the wet. if it is going to be wet and cold I add a mesh base layer. If you are exerting yourself in the cold exhausting out sweat can help keep you from getting chilled when you stop

This is the 4th or 5th pair of Eco-Mesh Pants I have purchased in the last 10 years. Its not because they dont last because they do but because I am a thru-hiker and they get used a lot. 5 months of 20 mile days on the PCT. 6 months of 20 mile days on the CDT. The Arizona Trail Colorado Trail Oregon Coast Trail and on and on. They keep the sun off bugs at bay and wear like iron yet are light weight. I love these pants

I wasn't expecting to love a pair of pants so much. But these are fantastic for hot muggy weather in tick infested areas. We had a bad tick season last year and I got a deer tick on my leg from wearing shorts around our property. I ordered a pair of these and wore them all summer. The eco-mesh is great for keeping cooler. My only complaint - I ordered a 30' inseam and there's no way on God's green earth that these are a 30 leg... I could have sent them back but I didn't want to deal with the cross border hassles as I am in Canada.
