We have redesigned these amazing pants to improve their features and fit. Now they boast a less blousy fit, Cleaner side pockets and added a slot pocket on the right side for your cell phone. These pants have been to every continent, climbed on some of the world’s highest mountains, and trekked the American
long trails. A staple of our collection for over a two decades, the X-Tremes are rugged, comfortable, unique, and ready to tackle whatever adventure throws at you. No pant out there is more field-tested and field-proven than our X-Treme Adventure Pants. Made from our standard 3oz nylon, reinforced with
RAILTEX, they can take a beating. Hidden zipper side pockets allow storage without snagging and a Velcro cuff closure ensures that your pants stay tight on your boot.
Reason for Being: Our award winning, X-Treme pant for hardcore expeditions. These are birthed to be the most rugged, durable, and comfortable pants you can find. In order to improve durability, we have increased the size of the reinforcements on the knees.
Fabric: 2 ply, 3 ounce nylon. Our standard fabric is the perfect combination of toughness, quick drying, and breathability.
Elastic Cuff Closure: Allows seamless integration of pants into hiking boots/gaiters, or to keep your pants from bunching under waders.
Hidden Pockets: Side thigh pockets open with a hidden zipper, ensuring extra storage without the risk of snagging or catching.
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.
Im an old guy and do Tai Chi so the extra room in the legs and crotch I really appreciated as a work to maintain my flexibility. The fact that they are light weight for summer and dry out really fast is a plus too. Finally the Velcro cuffs help keep me from stepping on the pants while Im in the studio.

I rarely review stuff so this is different. These are my favorite pants. My first pair has been all over for years and are still comfy and functional. Lightweight dry fast really useful.

I've worn two pairs these pants for about 5 years now and both have performed well. I wear the XXL 30" inseam (short and stout.) However I am here today to replace one pair... read on to see why.If you're tough on clothes these are the best pants you can get. First the "hand" of the material is uniquely comfortable especially considering its light weight. The construction is exceptionally rugged and the two-layer knees seat and interior cuff are indestructible from abrasion. The elastic cuff closure perform very well to keep whatever out of your pants. These pants are light they pack small they wash easily and dry quickly. On the downside even though the crotch is gusseted it's still a little tight down there in the ballroom department and over the top of your legs especially when seated. I often have to "scootch up" a little while driving to make more room. The rise of the pants from the crotch could be higher and the supplied belt is a little narrow it lets any belly fat roll over. Last I travel by motorcycle a lot and these pants are thin so they fit really well under my protective gear. However these pants melt almost instantly if they come in contact with a hot exhaust pipe. I would not wear these pants around hot surfaces or to close to open flame.
