Great Adventure Pants

I love the fabrication, durability, and sun protection these pants offer! It's handy that the pockets zip shut and are made of an extra-sturdy, slightly wind-resistant fabric.

I wore these pants once while rock climbing and hiking, another while peak bagging in inclement weather.

On both occasions, the pants performed fabulously. The only thing I'd note is that I (at 5'7", 138 lbs, with narrow hips) found the size Small just a bit too big.

Would definitely recommend, perhaps just size down next time!

Best adventure leggings!!

These leggings are awesome! They are warm, yet not hot in the sun, the soft shell-like material is SO great for hiking, especially through dewey plants. I wore them for a backpacking trip and didn't end up changing pants the whole time (took them off when I slept to get a little air), not smelly, not stretched out. They were awesome! GET EM! I got the green (beautiful color), in a medium and they fit really well! I am 5'10, 150 pounds and they come right above my ankle. I have quite an athletic booty and they fit it well, my waist is tiny and they stay on well with just a little looseness through the day.

Breathable, durable, perfect!

I just wore these tights for an almost 5-hour hike on a 90 degree day in Oregon (from 10:30 am to 3:15 pm), so a bit humid, too. Not only were they so comfortable I didn't have to think twice about them (no tugging them up at the waist or pulling them down over my calves), I didn't overheat despite being in full sun for a fair amount of the hike. This hike involved squatting underneath fallen tree trunks, scrambling over a pretty big trunk that required sliding over the top of it, and I also managed to wipe out on a rocky stretch of trail (straight onto my knees) and these bad ass tights didn't even get a scar in the fabric. And at the end of all of that, no stink! I don't need to wash them before wearing again. Like I said...Perfect!


The products are great. You should do a no iron travel shirt in traditional Nepali fabric in a crinkle cotton like Eddie Bauer's. I prefer traditional designs over the same old wovens with flower motifs.

Love at first wear

These are very comfortable and very durable- I was able to do a couple of trail runs with my phone. The pants stayed put and didn’t pull down.
