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.
I've had my first pair of X-Treme Adventure pants for a few weeks or so now and I find them very comfortable sturdy and suitable for all kinds of activities especially in warm to very warm weather. They also shed water well and are incredibly light and quick drying. The only reason for withholding the 5th star is that they seem a bit pricy. Free shipping helps me take the plunge and I'll be trying more Railroaders products maybe the lined Kodiak pants. I'm impressed and that seldom happens.

The X-Treme Adventure Pants are my go-to pants for leading treks here in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. They are incredibly durable very comfortable and dry very quickly which is a necessity in the mountains.

Great pants as advertised. I hike and camp but use them more often at work as a landscaper wearing them multiple days a week. They shed dirt and debris quite well and dry between jobs too. My only criticism is that at 5-6 the 30" inseam is still long. I ended up tearing them above the reinforced knee because my knee was actually touching the ground above the reinforcement which is where they tore. The length isn't as much an issue at the boot because of the nice cuff closure system. I'll buy them again. Would love to see the shorter inseam though.
