A wider fit through the seat and thigh that continues all the way to the ankles.
Ripstop has a hard-wearing military history with a compelling performance narrative. As a textile it’s defined as a fiber-weaving technique that makes finished goods more durable via the rip-resistant fabric. For our own collection we added 2% spandex for mobility and comfort. Additionally, we applied the ripstop to cotton instead of the nylon traditionally used in tactical wear and outdoor gear. This gives our apparel a more natural drape on the body and the ability to perform in the streets and in nature. Additional benefits include high breathability, UPF 40+, for total versatility.
Ultraviolet Protection Factor gauges a fabric's effectiveness at filtering both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) light. In everyday terms, a rating of UPF 40+ means the fabric allows less than 2.5% UV transmission. UPF-rated clothing enhances protection against UV-related health risks. Increase your personal safety and decrease your reliance on sunscreen by covering up with our UPF-rated clothing.
These pants put the wide in wide fit. They fit like sweatpants but wear like pants I can climb in, hike in, do whatever in. Love em.
