RailRiders WeatherPants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars All nylon construction mean these pants dry a lot (!) faster than cotton. Cordura reinforcement at the knees and backside add to the durability. Permethrin pretreatment helps keep ticks and chiggers at bay. Not lightweight per se, but definitely lighter than denim. I know of no better outdoor trousers than my WeatherPants for the tick-infested, swampy hot New England summer. The main body is constructed of Supplex (a trademarked variety of ripstop nylon) and there are Cordura (another trademarked… Full review

Eco-Mesh Pant with Insect Shield

rated 5 of 5 stars I used thes pants at Philmont 70+ mile backpacking, I even fell in the rocks once and skinned my leg, the the pants didn't even tear. Overall I've used these for over 200+ miles backpacking, great pants lightweight. These are the lightest pants and the toughest I've seen. Full review

Eco-Mesh Pant with Insect Shield

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My favorite 3-season hiking pants. No other pants have these vents. WHY NOT??? I recomend for most hiking in milder weather.

RailRiders WeatherPants

rated 5 of 5 stars I use the Men's Winter Weatherpants for hiking and backpacking in the winter. These pants are very tough, I have fell into sharp rocks before and they didn't even tear. My favorite for summer, spring, and fall are the RailRiders Men's Eco-Mesh Pant with Insect Shield. these are also the greatest pants I've seen for backpacking or hiking, very lightweight and tough.

RailRiders WeatherPants

rated 5 of 5 stars As an outdoors professional who depends on my gear - it either performs to my expectations or it doesn't get used - I have rarely if ever given anything a perfect 5 stars...until now. In a word, RailRiders Weatherpants are bomber! From rock climbing to ropes courses, I use my gear hard. What would've torn my previous nylon favorites don't even leave a mark on the Weatherpants. They're built like a tank, with reinforced knees and butt, but they're "dressy" enough to put a sweater on and teach college… Full review
