When Topo Designs dropped their Mountain Shorts a few months back, CH was on the horn with Topo co-founder Mark Hansen in seconds. And after a summer of wear—most recently on the Trans-America Trail—they are hard to beat. Needless to say, CH staffers were excited to see the Colorado-based brand introduce a longer version of the favorite shorts earlier this week. Made of lightweight 100% ripstop cotton, the Mountain Pants sport a slim cut for ease of movement around the campsite and on the trail. Design-wise, the pants feature the same look as the shorts—top-stitched front pockets with reinforced stress points and cavernous back pockets with a single inner zippered wallet pocket.
Find the American-made Mountain Pants in khaki, olive and woodland camo at Topo Designs for $129.
