killer pants

    had an awesome time trying these pants just like the other ap pants but the knee reinforcement is amazing and I love the extra pockets

    One Pant to Rule them ALL

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    If you already own the original AP pant getting this one won't be hard to add but if you have not had this brands AP (All Purpose) then why not start with the top of the line... A little heavier which is like for fall and mountain living. Snap back pockets are a nice addition and trico lined pockets are a nice addition. What I like most if the utility. I can wear for almost any outdoor activity but can also use it for a night on the town and my wife doesn't complain when I wear it out for date night. As a guy this is basically the trifecta for a dude.. Well done Mountain Hardwear!!! My new favorite pant.
