Coming on the heels of the success of our Versatac Light and Mid Pants, we created the Versatac Ultra-lIght Pants. Made with all the same great features as the Light and Mid. The Ultra-Lights are constructed with 2ply 3oz Rip-Stop Nylon (the same fabric we use in our Rampage Shorts). The entire pant weighs in at 14 ounces, but don't let that fool you into thinking they are not tough. Ideal for hot weather wear, UPF 30+ sun protection and all the features you have come to love in the Versatac family.
Reason for Being: The lightest pant in our VersaTac line up, designed to give you all the features of the VersaTac pant with only 14 ounces of weight. Wearable in extreme heat, dry extremely fast.
Fabric: Ultra lightweight “Rip-Stop” nylon. Light and breathable but with a rip-stop pattern to prevent tearing with heavy use. Reinforced with an extra layer on the knees, seat, and ankle for extra durability.
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.
I purchased the ultra light versatac pants for a trip out west. I wore them everyday on the trip and loved them I appreciate pockets and loved the placement and size of these. The material is so lightweight that you cannot tell you are wearing pants. I like the elastic waist as well. I think the pockets on the legs could be moved up a little to be more like the shorts so the pockets swing less when stuff is in them. I would also love to see railriders put a little stretch in there pants. Overall good quality comfortable product.

I take youth groups to Yellowstone every year and have been looking for a lightweight durable pair of pants and these are them. I am amazed at the comfort utility and durable fabric of these pants. Honestly if you are on the fence as to whether these pants are right for you they are. Not only are they water resistant easy to clean comfortable and lightweight they wear in such a way that on cool evenings you are just as comfortable as you are on a hot afternoon. You will not regret the purchase. I own two pairs currently and plan on purchasing two more they are that great.

I bought the black version of these a few years ago and liked them enough to try the slate version. The color actually has a little of green in it (less to my liking but I understand that it's difficult to get colors right on the internet - let alone that my monitor probably wasn't calibrated at the time). For the pants in general I've got no issues these slate ones have a kind of raised grid to the material (the black ones didn't back then) so I don't know how they'll hold up yet - but I expect RR will stand behind them. I did avoid getting the belt I've got one for the black pair and it's frayed on the edges simply from putting it on the pants and taking it off not the kind of thing I'd expect from RR. Overall the black ones have served really well and I expect the same from the slate ones.
