I have hiked and trekked many trails all over the country. I bought a pair of RailRider X-treme Adventure pants a few months ago and by far, these are the toughest pair of pants that I've worn.
I'm a rough climber and I tend to destroy pants and I also tend to wear them out very quickly. These pants not only took on normal wear & tear, they exceeded and went way beyond the call of any normal pant. I think my skin tore on a fall, but not the pants.
The pants were roomy enough of me to wear a base-layer underneath when needed, but then I could tighten the waist when I didn't need the extra room. They are also quick dry enough that I never felt like I would have to change them right away. I could just literally brush the moisture right off and they dried.
The cargo pockets weren't too cumbersome and annoying like some huge side pockets can be while hiking through tight brush.
At first, I didn't think that I would like the bottom velcro, but after awhile I decided that it was an amazing feature. I liked having the ability to adjust the leg room for different types of hikes.
I recently bought 2 more pairs and I couldn't have been more convinced that these were in fact the great pants. I'm looking forward to trying some of their Spring products that now I've found this brand.
Thumbs up for RailRiders.
