I’ve always wanted a pair of Carharts type pants (I thought they would make me look super hardcore, which Iâ€™m not really), but I’ve never been able to find a pair that fit quite right.
When I tested out a pair of the Mountain Khakis Alpine Utility Pants, I couldn’t have been more stoked. According to Mountain Khakis, “Never has â€˜mountain coreâ€™ met â€˜outdoor sexyâ€™ like our Alpine Utility Pant for women,” and I couldn’t have said it better myself.
I decided to test out the Alpine Utility Pants during an evening of climbing in Salt Lake Cityâ€™s Little Cottonwood Canyon. After getting dragged up Littleâ€™s jagged sharp granite, I was seriously impressed that these pants came out unscathed. I was worried that they would be too stiff at first, but after a few high steps they moved as smooth as can be.
The Alpine Utility Pants are reinforced in all the high use areas so I am expecting these babies to last a long time. The double-ply, brushed cotton canvas is abrasion-resistant without the bulk. Plus they are cute in a rugged sort of way and you can expect a lot of attention both at the crag and at the bar â€“ they seriously make you look hardcore, just look at that gal in the picture. Oh and they make them for men too.
