Field Report Review - EcoTrek Pants

We recently sent Krista Cloud a pair of our EcoTrek Pants, which launched earlier this year via Kickstarter and raised over $500,000 in backer support. Check out her field report review below, and see what all the hype is about!

"I first tried on a pair of Ecotrek Pants while on a trip to Glorieta, New Mexico. I instantly fell in love with the fit and color. The caramel color is a neutral tone, with a classic outdoorsy vibe. The fabric is lightweight and not at all restrictive, but still hugs my body in all the right places. I love pairing them with a bold-colored top for a feminine look.

While in New Mexico they were perfect for hikes in the desert tundra. We went bouldering and my legs were protected from the scrub brush while allowing me to freely move up the rock. The fabric seems to do well at shedding dirt and moisture."

"Due to their weight, the EcoTrek pants make a perfect option for packing light. I rolled these pants up into my Revelate bike frame bag for my Bikepacking trips this past fall. I wore them around the campfire and brisk early mornings, they were also my backup rain gear, though I never had to test them.

I joined a group of guys for their, “First Saturday Ops” Airsoft game in Joplin, Missouri. We ran, crawled, and hid out in a field in freezing temps with snow. I chose to wear my Ecotrek pants with base layer thermals underneath. By the end of the day, my husband had a wet bottom in his fleece-lined pants, while I remained completely dry. I had a few field burrs but they easily brushed off."

"These pants have been my go-to for most of our recent outdoor adventures. Camping, climbing, biking, hiking, and I imagine so many other adventures can be done in these pants. I love the strong color options as well as the sizing. I look forward to a design more tailored to women!"
