Product Description

Mountain Hardwear's top-of-the-line hiking pant, the Men's Talus Pack Pant, features a nylon-elastane outer fabric and polyester lining. The outer fabric dries quickly after a river crossing and moves with you as you scramble up rocky terrain with a backpack on. The polyester lining wicks perspiration so you stay dry when you exert. Flat, welded seams on the Talus Pack Pants stretch and won't abrade or chafe. The seamless waist won't create uncomfortable pressure points under a hip-belt, and Mountain Hardwear placed pockets where you can still get to them while you're wearing a pack.


Material: [Body] Switchback Plus (85% nylon, 15% elastane) with DWR; [Lining] Micro Chamois (100% brushed polyester tricot) Inseam: 32in (81cm) Waist: Belt loops Rise: Medium Pockets: 2 Front, 1 thigh Fly: Zip Gusseted Crotch: No Recommended Use: Hiking, backpacking Manufacturer Warranty: Lifetime

Dow WilliamsHuge fan...

Voted 5/5

...of this pant....can't even look at 9 out of 10 pants because they won't make the inseam long enough for a climber at 5'11", 150lbs, did not know I was such an abnormality. Anyway, the pRana Canyoneering pant was a good pant, made a long inseam, but the built in belt was breaking on all of them, so broke down and just decided to buy a pant with loops....and this is a tough pant, willing to put up with a lot of abrasion (I mostly climb limestone and sandstone)...best improvement for me was the ease of opening the front pockets with one hand while belaying...vs how pRana had done that Canyoneering pant with too small of a zipper cord.
