Entering his 10th year guiding at WorldCast Anglers, Trevor has been known for his new and innovative ideas so the Mountain Khakis Cruiser Pantwas a perfect fit.
“To start, the construction of the cruiser pant is impressive! All the seams are smooth and very durable. The cruiser pant has a light feel and is extremely comfortable on and off the water. I first noticed the 2 way stretch material throughout the legs with some slight articulation at the knee. Simply stated, the Mountain Khakis Cruiser Pant is a great all around active pant for anyone that enjoys an outdoor lifestyle.
With 3 inch gussied crotch tapering to 1 and a half inch at the double reinforced heel cuffs, the Cruiser pant is tough enough for lots of fun and airport lounging too. Most pant designs have a 3 inch gusset but they don’t extend the gusset down to the heel cuff. Without being to baggy this extended gusset allows for a wide range of motion. They also are rated UPF 40+ and DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treated.
The heel cuffs have tiny buttons to taper the pant at the ankles. This is easier to slide into the waders, hip-boots or hiking gators. Under the waders, wet wading a small remote stream or driving to the next fishing destination, The Cruiser pant is a joy to wear all day and still look good going out for dinner.”
