Because your wilderness DNA is calibrated to an action-oriented pitch, RailRiders is constantly seeking to make life more enjoyable for those of you who like to trek through steamy jungle swamps, traverse glacier fields, or wonder why the bus hasn't arrived at the Moroccan oasis in two days. In the wild, you want to have the toughest pants in the world as your companion, reliable, durable, and low-maintenance. With the redesigned X-Treme Adventure Pants which now offer a better and more roomy fit, you have found the ultimate adventure travel buddy. The X-Treme's fabric chassis remains the same sturdy and dependable Weatherpants--lightweight, tough, quick-drying nylon fabric, with rugged, super abrasion-resistant fabric on the butt and knees and inside cuff. Here's further new refinements: Full inseam gusseted crotch, 1 3/4 inch waistband with removable belt; two welted zippered back pockets; two side zippered cargo pockets on each outer leg; much deeper front pockets with reinforced pocket trim; right side hip vertical security pocket behind front pocket. The only thing not extreme about these wilderness pants, is their affordable price; repeated washings over the years will convince you that it's money well spent since the X-Tremes refuse to live a quiet life indoors. Nor do they ever wear out.
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.
These are by far the best hiking backpacking traveling comfortable pants I own. I like the two zippered side pockets the deep front pockets zippered back and hidden pocket. VERY VERY durable they keep me warm when it's cold and cool when it's hot they dry quickly and resist staining. I'd still be using the pants I purchased over 10 years ago...but I've moved from XL to M and have to buy new pants. It's a good problem to have. Although the versions of this pant from 20 years ago were good the modern improvements are all appreciated. RailRiders takes an excellent design and keeps improving it. Although these are similar to the bushwhacker pant which is also very good these seem a bit more durable. Over the years I've tried just about every RailRider pant and these continue to be the best ones for my needs.

I am a repeat customer. The last time I purchased was 10 years ago or thereabouts. I do not at all treat these pants nicely... and it took this long to wear them out. Though in truth the one pair is still in use there are just too stained to be used in a social setting.A decade or more of hard core adventure racing mountianeering jungle hike brambles vines barbed wire swamps and so many other nasty and rough to reach locations. ...and they keep on keeping on.The new pair has slightly smaller lower leg pockets less of a fan of this ... but this might just be me and my XXL glove sized hands.I'll still buy again. There are no other pants in close compare in my thoughts experience.

The real deal. These pants made it through unscathed rock collecting where one frequently brushes up against rocks. I previously shredded a pair of jeans doing this. These fit well have some stretch lightweight breath good pockets and are tough. Belt is 'ok' but serviceable. Would buy again and probably will get another pair in another color. Happy customer. Great product.
