What makes a quality pair of travel pants? It’s tough to say, and likely that the answer will vary widely even amongst tight-knit groups of wanderers. Here’s a hypothesis though: how about pants that are comfortable in transit, look right at dinner and are sturdy enough to stand up to a spur-of-the-moment hike to the local lookout point? Maybe it’s too much to ask. There are indeed pants that can do one or two of these things but sacrifice on the third. Not Askov Finlayson’s Vermilion Pant though.
The Vermilion Pant is made of 10.4-ounce unwashed cotton canvas, which is a material often used to create workwear. Additionally, the knees and seat are reinforced. Combined, these features impart the durability we like when packing light for a trip that might involve unexpected outings (which are the best kinds of trips anyway). Don’t let that tough construction fool you though; these pants look more like a pair of J.Crew Chinos than Carhartt Dungarees. Oh, and yes, they’re comfortable too. Snag a pair now for $78 off their full price of $178 (that’s 44 percent) at Huckberry’s Summer Sale.
