Style and performance for all your projects.

From an exposed rock route on the Tetons to the celebratory bar visit following the descent, count on the Outdoor Research Men's Voodoo Softshell Pant to conjure up ample style and performance for both. The double weave softshell fabric blocks windy weather and stretches for complete freedom of movement while the slick jean-style cut is intended to help you send an entirely different (although just as dangerous) type of project when you're done.

  • Nylon double-weave softshell fabric is breathable, quick drying, and weather resistant
  • 12% spandex and articulated knees provide freedom of movement
  • Trim jean-style cut with a button and zipper fly provide ample style for the bar
  • Low-profile waist is designed to fit beneath a harness
  • Zippered thigh and rear pocket keep valuables safely stowed

These Pants Do It All

I wore these pants on the JMT this summer, have taken them on multiple backpacking and hiking trips, and wear them around town. I love the comfort and fit.

Thank you again!

Leta, Thanks! I was distraught when I found out the Outdoor Research Supercharger pants were discontinued. I took those things trekking in Peru and the Alps. I'm so happy to have found the Voodoo.

Awesome picture Drew !!!

I selected this image to feature on the Community Hub at the bottom of the Backcountry homepage! Congrats on being amazingly GOATWORTHY !!

Unanswered Question

Do these pants have a brushed interior wall?

how water resistant are they in comparison to other soft shell pants?

I wore these on the JMT through a few thunderstorms and never had a problem.

Hey, what's the exact Inseam length for a size 30" Waist? I'm 32" Inseam with a 30-31" Waist.

Hey there - Leta from OR here - The inseam on the 30" is a 31". If you want a 32" inseam, you will need to go up to a 32" waist - not ideal for you! I have the same issue on the women's side! Hope this helped! Leta

It did! Could I ask you another question? Why did you guys get rid of short and long lengths?

OR Voodoo are awesome for winter hikes! Breathable yet windproof, with the ability to vary base layers for different conditions. Also, the loops at the cuffs connect to laces and are great for keeping snow out of boots.

Hi I'm having trouble figuring out which...


I'm having trouble figuring out which one (30 or 32) is fitting well...

I'm a Korean, and 177cm/72kg and usually wears 81 (or 32/asian fit) ---> waiste

Some said on the internet that it was a little larger than they thought... and 30 is much like 32.

Do you think it is ok to go with 30???

Due to the 'jean' style fit, I'd say size down. I got a 34 and they are a bit loose around the waist. They fit good in the legs but I wish I had the 32's.

No 36" inseam on these?

These pants are a current model, so it's likely they're just sold out currently. If you start a live chat with one of the great folks in customer service, they'll gladly let you know if more are on the way.
