The Rocalden pant, an icon, reinvented

Technical Mountain Pants

We’re taking it back to the old school, in a modern-day nod to European alpine style and performance. Originally inspired by carpenters’ pants, the Racladens left their mark on mountaineering history with their functional, colorful design. New for 2017, we revisit this classic with modern fabrics and colors, while remaining faithful to their vintage roots. When your weekend adventures take you from stream crossings to alpine summits to campsites and back, the rugged nature of the Rocaldens can handle it all. Mapped materials team up to ensure optimum performance, while the multitude of pockets provide ample storage for all your extras.

REVISITED FIT

This year, we’ve redefined the fits of our pants, bermudas, and shorts to answer the needs of more active individuals and today’s body shapes. We have refined their legs, harnessing the comfort of stretch fabrics to create more freedom of movement for active use. Our pre-shaping has been accentuated to accommodate the body’s joints and curves, delivering more mobility and comfort. All of this is done knowing that enjoying time in the outdoors is directly related to your overall comfort. Your legs can take you to amazing places. It’s our job to make sure your pants don’t hold you back.

COMPLEX ARRANGEMENTS OF FABRIC

Trail maps help you get from start to finish, while body maps – that is, the strategic placing of various materials in garments to maximize the benefits of each – assure that you get there dry and comfortable. We work backwards, thinking first of the intended use of each garment, what types of conditions those wearing it will endure, and then evaluate which fabrics will perform best in various areas of the body. The Rocalden Pants map a waxed cotton canvas for durability and four-way stretch softshell panels for freedom of movement. We’ve reinforced the rear with an extra layer of fabric for extra measure, resulting in highly durable pants for rugged adventures and campground chores.
