Recommend me some good good out pants, Im sick of these overrated memes like Fjallraven:

1. pockets always open by themselves and are low volume
2. retarded placement of dexteritiy small pockets on the wrong side
3. no ammount of stretch in material or stretch panels - very uncomfrotable when worn for a long time and impossible to do full ammount of movement
4. poseur image

Tell me what just works, price is not the limit if they work - reliable pockets and comfort are prime

I completely agree on the Fjallraven pants. Terrible design and the fabric is completely overshadowed by stretch cotton blends.

I wore these for a two week stay in Egypt doing all kinds of shit and they were great in the hot sun. Also pretty water resistant and they wash really well. All around one of my favorite pairs of pants I've ever owned and I am a real pants snob.
https://arcteryx.com/us/en/shop/mens/levon-pant

Alternatively, I'd recommend just about any range/tactical pants that have a stretch fabric and are from a reputable brand like Arc'Teryx LEAF. Pants are one of those pieces of clothing that you really need to try on though.
>>
>>2216745
>the fabric is completely overshadowed by stretch cotton blends.

What on earth were they thinking, polycotton is durable but probably the least comfortable blend you can have, every outdoor activity requires squating and a lot of leg movement etc. Why are these so popular anyway?

I already have similar 5 pocket pants, Im really looking for something with cargo pockets on the thighs, thanks anyway

>>2216737

You cant possibly by happy with the ammount of movement they offer, not to mention that in slightly hotter weather they breathe horribly

I don't wear viddas to the ball, I wear them when I'm going to be in thick brush or traveling off trail for most of the day, and I don't want my legs tore up. If I am doing something that requires climbing or lazing around camp, I have OR Ferrosis that stretch plenty.

I get your point, but Im looking for something not as hard as a Vidda, and significantly harder than a softshell pant, like a Vidda with 1 or 2% elastane, softshell pants are quite fragile and Ferrosis has too little of pocket space.

>>
>>2217963
Absolutely. I have only managed to tear one pair of mine, and it was only when I dropped my motorcycle on my leg and a jagged piece of metal caught them, and even then it was a small tear. Otherwise they have taken everything I've thrown at them. I know Duluth also sells a pair I believe they call Firehose Briar that has an additional layer of nylon to add tear resistance but I have no personal experience with them. I dont think they are much more expensive so it might be worth trying out

I have been using the Men's Quandary Pants from patagonia for my last few summer backcountry treks. I was happy with how light and breathable they were until my most recent trip where some branches put a hole on them. Also not happy with the pocket placement. They served me well for a while though. Also got them at the outlet for half off, so maybe that was more worth it than full price.

Really light and breathable which was great for long hikes.

Arcteryx is for people with more money than experience or sense. It's the equivalent of biking in Tour d'France gear down your suburban cul-de-sac on your $4000 larp bike. You don't need it, and you look like a clown to anyone with a lick of sense.

5.11 made the best out pant I've ever had. Super comfy. Stretches just enough, roomy, muh pockets, muh olive drab, good seams, have worn it for a few years constantly, including backpacking trips, and it looks nearly new. Lightweight too, dries quick. Fucking magic. I'm done looking for a different brand at this point.
Most people doing rough stuff out wear Carhartt or something along those lines. Rough canvas; anything less just wears out quickly. All my Carhartt pants rip out at the crotch after 12mo of use it seems, so I don't know if I can recommend them. I run through them too quickly, the material just doesn't have quite enough stretch/give for the constant up/down of work.
Was unimpressed by Duluth's options for workwear. We have one right next to the 5.11 store. I go to 5.11 for anything non-work related.

I can say the opposite of this. I wore 5.11 pants as a mechanic and they were worn out with holes in them within 6 months. At the one year mark they ripped down the taint whole I was squatting under a rack. I've had some of their belts and two pairs of their boots. Everything 5.11 makes has failed me within a year of purchase. They spend more time shoving their backpacks into video games than on actually making quality products.

I really like the Kuhl renegade rock pants, I pretty much wear them every time I go climbing and frequently do fairly long approach hikes. Super lightweight and breathable with some really nice sidepockets that keep my phone snug even on overhung climbs. They definitely don't seem like the most durable option since the material is pretty thin and airy, but I love them

Great comfort but they rip ridiculously easy also falmes + bad for cargo pockets since too much stretch makes anything in your pockets swing like crazy. Ideal material for everything would be 64/34 polycotton with 2% elastane or spandex. Why fjallraven doesnt have a bit of stretch is beyond my explanation.

Pic rel are excellent in comfort but way to thin on the ass and knee - its a panel material design

My experience- a tight weave poly cotton is a great fabric. It is light and cool in the heat but it is a tight enough weave to block wind. Having said that it pains me to spend $100+ on something that will very likely get absued and eventually torn.

I'm coming around to just going with cheap denim and replacing them and wearing them out with imputiny.

Sometimes it is the the most unexpected things that makes me choose clothing. I usually hate buying expensive clothing that will get hard wear and tear, but the tight weave poly cotton (like G1000) does one thing that I cant find in any other fabric- it does not pickup spanish needles. I know it sounds minor but for me any fabric that will keep the spanish needles off is worth its weight in gold. It is ultimately just convenience but I genuinely hate picking off hundreds or thousand of those things.

Normally I hate paying full price but I grabbed a pair of Kuhls last year and they've been worth every penny. The breath and the back of the knee vents work pretty well. I think I got the Konfidant's

go a size up or wear a belt, it sounds like you're too fat for the snap to work (no offense)

I bought a pair of tan pants from walmart that had a mountain as the logo for 15 bucks and it's the the best pair of pants I've had for /out/ activities. they're breathable have long pockets so things wont fall out and sheds mud/sand with ease

Those suck ass in the summer heat.

For summer I like Prana stretch zion convertible pants and for the rest of the year I wear fjallraven keb gaiters or himali flex guide pants.
Also I have a pair of arcteryx beta ar pants for really inclement weather.
>>

Walmart sells wrangler riggs pants and they are fuckin great. I went a whole summer labor job on one pair of $40 wrangler pants. I cant comprehend buying faggot shit like fjallraven.

I have a few 100% cotton jeans with a heavier material and they are way more comfortable than Fjall polycotton pants, how does one go on with designing something so uncomfortable for outdoor ACTIVITIES? is fjall a poseur brand?

I don't mind the feel of poly cotton, and it is superior to denim for some things even though I'll wear both. The fjallraven pants are too expensive, but I've never really been disappointed with them.

I wear denim alot too- it has stuck around so long for a reason and it is cheap, but I have problems with denim. I'm starting to prefer a really tight weave.
>>
>>2229148
mine too. This has been an issue for them and they have recently changed snaps on some of their designs. But you can sed them back and they will fix for free-

>I don't mind the feel of poly cotton

I dont mind the feel, I think the issue is with "give", pure cotton jeans always stretch and with wear give a few cm, mold to the wearer, polcottone doesnt, some 100% cotton cargo pants also dont have a cm of give
>>
>>2231498
Yeah they will rip if you have a bad fit, but they also dont hold water like denim, and the tight weave doesnt pick up shit like thorns and spanish needles. Light and cool in the heat and tight enough of a weave to block the wind in cold weather.

I like both tbqh.

I walk through brush in my vidda pros with no worry and I still haven't seen any damage. I don't wax mine anymore unless I have some specific reason to.
>>

The only pants I know that are both waterproof and stretch are hunting pants. Check out any number of offerings from KIUI or the vantage from Duck Camp. You'll lose out on some pockets and reinforcements and cotton content, but they're all much more waterproof than typical hiking pants.
>>
>>2231777
Polycotton stands up well to brush, but I've ripped them before (even when I had a perfect fit) by jumping across things. There is no give and you can rip them at the seams doing certain things if you arent careful. But yeah generally speaking it is still a pretty good fabric.
>>
Gramicci pants. Even though they have a weird streetwear/hypebeast reputation their legitimately amazing out pants. Feel like perfectly broken in jeans that give you complete range of motion, deep pockets.

I've been enjoying the hell out of Kuhl Siilencr pants for general purpose beater use. I've never been big on stretchy material but these things are converting me slowly. Beyond's K5 Makers pants have been great as a beater layer as well. For rain pants I've always had great luck with Arcteryx and ORC Industries. REI is currently offering heavy discounts on some Arc rain pants (still expensive). Caught a pair of REI's store-branded goretex rain pants for a stupid good deal and they have done great in ~12 miles worth of steady rain. We'll see how those things hold up long term.

Disregard the point about Arc rain pants being on sale, just noticed it's XL/XXL/S sizes on those only...unless you're a little or big guy.

Yeah, instead get Dickies loose fit double knee or 874. 50 companies make cheaper polycarbonate. Big Bill Carhartt. Red Kap, Arborwear some Italian workwear companies, helicopter.
Get them loose and just put a surplus grid fleece under them as it gets colder.
Woven pants are meant to be loose like how our German ancestors wore them. You only need spandex for superhero sperm prohibiting faggot fits
>>
>>2216713
Denim jeans, but you gotta have a broken in pair of them, and breaking in denim takes a long fucking time.
>>
>>2224465
Why do you need so many pockets anyway? And having any cotton is a terrible idea.

Thank you (:

I had lots of apple cider last night, and some spicy mexican food earlier today. I just went to an REI to buy pants, and I tried on at least 30 pairs... and farted awful, nasty facts in all of them.
So be aware that if you go to an REI store, and buy pants within the 30-34 range, there's a good chance you're wearing the pants I farted in.
Enjoy the braps if you dare.
>>
>>2216753
Overpriced, overhyped hipster shit.
The trades you mentioned wear Carhart. One good reason is briar and thorn resistance.
Another is fire resistance.
>>
whats a good pair of denmin overalls? are the Verustaleka ones good?
>>
Thinking about buying some rab kinetic 2.0 (alpine?) pants, has anyone tried them or can rec any other waterproof pants? Or are non waterproof pants plus over trousers when it rains better?
>>
>>2229386
We need durable pants for sharting
>>
>>2234851
Water resistant soft shell pants and then separate waterproof pants if it actually rains because waterproof pants aren’t breathable and get hot quick
>>
So you fellas wear 100%, 50/50, or 100% synthetic trousers? And what fit - 'slim' or regular/baggy? And what kind of trousers are good for winter?
>>
>>2216745
But this looks ugly as fuck. How do you deal with everyone making fun of you?
>>
>wrangler men’s outdoor zip cargo pants from Walmart
Yes, I’m a poorfag, but these pants are comfy as hell and get the job done. So far no issues with durability but the stitching could definitely use some work. Still, for just $20 a pair they do great.
>>
>>2234751
>And having any cotton is a terrible idea.

totally untrue, cotton has its place. For pure comfort, comfort to skin after its dirty and fire resistance its unbeatable

If you're going to sweat or it'll rain you can get hypothermia. It's terrible when wet.
>>
>>2216734
love my 5.11 tactical pants, just envious that the guy's pants has way more pockets than the girls pants (but the girl's pants still has hella pockets)
>>
>>2216713
Fjallraven abisko midsommer pants and abisko trekking tights are actually really nice.
Not the same material as their main pants, very stretchy and durable.
Really light weight and airy though, only for the middle of summer.
>>
>>2235332
>If you're going to sweat or it'll rain you can get hypothermia. It's terrible when wet.

but these are legwear, not a baselayer, polycotton gets dried very quickly as well, no reason to go full polyester on pants when you count everything in.

black leather pants or crochless chaps, please

does anyone know good brands for women? might be a longshot given the demographic of this website but i could use some good recommendations

Oiii I jsut bought some mfor 35 eurobucks. ordered a bit smaller in size and hope itll fit (yeah normally surplus runs bigger). Anyone got a more helpful size guide than height and weigt? This Mike B fellow (controversial figure on /k/ but I think hes fine) has them on his site for 40 dollars for ya americans just as a tip.
>>
>>2237391
>Anyone got a more helpful size guide than height and weigt?
Just follow that. I think mine are sized down one in the length but that's just how I like them

>Mike B fellow (controversial figure on /k/ but I think hes fine)

Dude comes across as an ass
>>
>>2237656
well i bought them one weight level down, mike b also prvided rough measurments on his site and 36 inch seemed a bit excessive for my weight category, will report back if they fit
>>
Look at "Duer" pants. They have jeans/pants specialized for hot and cold weather, climbing, everything. After purchasing a couple pairs i will never wear anything else again unless i have to wear a fucking suit.
>>
>>2226502
Kinda wondered when these would get mentioned. Supremely durable and well made. Very cool pattern as well.
>>
>>2237769
Take a picture of the tag. The ones I've seen recently aren't actual surplus, just commercially made stuff.
>>
>>2238448
yeah there is bdu cut pants with the same camo pattern but i think they are legit. cut is pretty unique
>>
>>2238506
Commercial stuff has three globes rather than three crowns.
>>
>>2222136
I usually get mine barely used off ebay for quite cheap. Also, they're constantly at the thrift store. Nice pants.
>>
>>2233983
This is what I do. Some dickies camo for like 30 bucks from walmart. With base layer + sweat pants under neath for when it is winter. Idc if they rip or get bloody cause they are so cheap.
>>
>>2223143
I work as a car mechanic and I've been using those for almost 2 years. I lay on the concrete, ground, I weld in those and there are barely any signs of wear other than a few oil spots.
