This tough, proven design—made from Gore-Tex’s waterproof-breathable Performance Shell 3L Enduro nylon—is perfect for season-long abuse. Hold ’em up with either a belt or the removable suspenders. Plus: Zippered rear flap for easy bathroom breaks. Minus: There’s a noticeable lack of breathability in these overbuilt pants during long tours.

MSRP: $400. For more information about these pants, visit
