Lightweight Strength
The core of these pants is a very specific type of nylon, a high tenacity, air texturized nylon 6,6. By using two different 6 carbon monomers (as opposed to the single one used to make regular nylon 6) then subjecting it to an air jet texturizing process during its extrusion we are able to obtain a nylon that is significantly softer, stronger and more matte in appearance than your average polyamide. In other words, a stronger and better looking material that we can use to create lighter and more comfortable garments.

Breathable Movement
Traveling freely means moving freely so, like most Outlier garments, these pants are engineered for maximum freedom of movement and comfort. The F.Cloth fabric has a substantive 35% two-way stretch that helps, but the real secret is in how that stretch combines with a knee length gusseted construction to open up the range of motion.

Fluorocarbon Free F0 DWR
The only thing worse than a wet pant is destroying the planet via global warming. Ok we're exaggerating a bit here, but we have taken a baby step toward improving both by using the best fluorocarbon free (F0) DWR around, Zelan R3. The biggest weakness of F0 DWRs is that they don't repel oil as well as the old C6 & C8 options. Zelan R3 counters this weakness by being extremely resistant to tannins and stain resistance, which was really the best part of the old oleophobic DWRs. What this means in practice is these pants are quite resistant to coffee and wine spills, extending their usable life by who knows how long... And on top of that this DWR is actually more durable than the old chemistries so these pants stay clean and dry even longer, just don't dry clean them please!
