Ready. Aim. Get fired up with our VersaTac pants. A whole lot of R&D went into their technical design. We developed them in conjunction with military professionals and outdoorsmen who are more the type to read Field & Stream rather than Men’s Journal. We’ve even found that U.S. Special Forces have taken a special liking to our VersaTacs. When your life is constantly in harm’s way, you want the ultimate protection in clothing. The Mid Pants are heaviest in the line and are made with extra-durable 6.6-oz Yukon Canvas weave nylon fabric, and feature a gusseted crotch and double-reinforced knees and seat. The Mid pants sport the following: side cargo pockets with internal pockets to hold a flashlight, mag clips, and energy bars; vertical zippers on front cargo pockets that allow quick access while sitting, kneeling or driving a vehicle; and reinforced pocket openings to prevent abrasion against knife clip chafe. Front pockets close with Velcro and double-button closures, and two back pockets have flaps with Velcro and double-button closure as well.
Reason For Being: Part of our “Versatac” line, the Light pants offer a lighter weight version of the Mid Pant, making them better for hot and/or wet climates.
Fabric: 2 ply, 3 ounce Duralite nylon shell, making them lightweight, breathable, but also water resistant and incredibly tough.
The best pockets around. Huge cargo pockets allow limitless storage while also including smaller pockets for sorting what you carry. A cell phone pocket allows for easy access and storage of mobile devices, and the side cargo pockets have additional zipper access for ease when seated.
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 just wanted to take a few minutes and tell you that I recently completed a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail, all 2185.6 miles this spring/summer. In the five and a half months it took, I wore only one pair of pants; Versa Tac-light pants. I also had a pair of your ultra light versatac shorts along for the trip.. but 99.9% of the time I wore the pants. They were great and held up to some rugged punishment. My new saying is one Appalachian thru hike means one pair of rail riders versa tac pants. Look forward to wearing the same pants when I do The PCT next spring.
I have owned Versatel pants mid and light for a number of years. They are the best pants I have ever owned. I have hiked camped been snow mobiling back country skiing and general wear. I wear nothing else anymore. They fit the best of any pants Inhave ever owned. The cargo pockets are the best. I carry a broker forum 42 knife in one and a flash lite in the other plus wallet and other things and hardly notice them I some times reach down and feel to see if I still have them. They are bullet proof. Thank you for an excellent product.

I work in manufacturing in what is for most of the year a relatively hot and humid environment. These pants are very tough very light-weight and very cool (in every sense). They clean easily and they seem reluctant to stain. I used to pay about half this price for work pants but in terms of durability and comfort these seem worth every extra penny.
