Recommended by our Travel Initiatives Assistant Adam Reel, the Washakie Pant is a great everyday commuter pant. Made from a SWR-treated, quick-dry 94.7% nylon/5.3% Lycra 4-way stretch blend with a moisture wicking finish and dry feel waffle weave inside. The pants feature double-front and double-backside for added durability, reflective quick-pull calf cinches to keep cuffs in close for biking; two zippered front pockets, one zippered back pocket, and two zippered side pockets; sturdy built-in belt with low-profile clasp; gusseted crotch and articulated knees and 2" hems for durability and easy rolling. Otter.

I do recommend these pants for riding in all seasons. My favorite feature is the calf cinch with the reflective band. It works perfectly and is a extremely bike-centric design feature. The SWR treatment and quick drying fabric is great for rainy days. Wear'em, let'em dry, and wipe'em off. I appreciate that every pocket is zippered, so I don't worry about valuables slipping out while riding. The pants are also great for touring because they are light, pack well, and transition effortlessly between the bike and any possible side adventure you may undertake.
