For some reason I'm not getting email updates for these conversations. I thought this convo had died and yet there's much more great advice here! Any thoughts as to why I'm not receiving subscribed thread notifications?
In all the threads I've read on this topic, the Arc'Teryx Rampart pants seem to be consistently recommended (perhaps by the same person?! :-) I hate paying dead bird retail prices. Anyone seen any on sale? I've heard that recently they are running undersized. Any experience with this?
Nick-great comment on the eco-mesh pants snagging. Given this limitation, do you still wear the eco-mesh or some other Rail Riders?
John-I was actually looking at the ExOfficio Amphi pants. They don't mention a 4-way stretch, like their Kukura or Trail Roam'r pants. Do they stretch much? I had no idea that you could have Insect Shield applied to your own stuff. That is way cool!
I need light, quick drying, stretch fabric, with at least one cargo pocket. So far that seems to be the Arc'Teryx Rampart, ExOfficio Kukura or Roam'r pants. Any others?
Are the eco-mesh or the amphi pants stretchy at all? I hate having wet pants stick to me and threaten to tear out when I take a knee-busting step.
To the best of my understanding, the Patagonia Tropical Flats or sol patrol, RailRiders Eco-Mesh, ExOfficio Amphi, Montane Terra are not stretch fabric.
