New from RailRiders is the Eco-Mesh pant, a superlightweight design featuring two-way zippers that run down the side of each leg for excellent ventilation.
Weighing only 3 ounces and constructed from Duralite nylon, the pants have deep front pockets and two zippered back pockets. Mesh lining behind the zippers keeps the bugs away. So too does the Insect Shield, which repels mosquitoes and no-see-ums and is effective for 70 washings. These pants are excellent for tropical wading applications – and when the legs are zipped up, you’re ready to hit the town, as they look like ordinary khakis.
MSRP is $84. www.railriders.com
