When it comes to making great travel pants, fabric is critical because you want both comfort and technical capabilities. The fabric is soft and stretches. It has a nice matte texture and takes color beautifully.
The fabric is also moisture wicking, wrinkle-resistant, and antimicrobial. So these performance chinos are ready for a place in your capsule wardrobe, for work or vacation.
But the details take these chinos to the next level. Designed with a classic chino look, the waist actually features a special stretch waistband for a better fit and more comfort while you’re wearing them.
With the everyday carry (EDC) community in mind, we designed specific pockets to make it easier to organize your valuables where and how you want to.
You have the option of carrying your phone either in our signature back right waistband pocket, or in a new patch pocket inside the front right pocket, so your phone sits more comfortably at the top of your thigh.
We added a little utility pocket on top of the front phone pocket, designed for your keys, pocket knife, or other small multi-tool. For a new security feature, we added reverse direction front zippers – so gravity now make it harder for a thief to access the inside of your pockets.
And then there’s our custom designed travel money pouch, so you don’t need to wear a separate money belt to keep your passport or money safe while traveling.
Fill this interior pocket before you put your pants on, hiding your valuables inside your pants. But if you need access while you’re wearing them, you can still go through the front left pocket.
I tested these pants on a trip to Morocco, and I was thrilled at how safe and comfortable I felt. Plus, these looked great – whether paired with a t-shirt for a casual look, or dressed up with our grey polo and navy blue blazer.
The Ascender Chino raises the bar for how comfortable stretch chinos can be while looking amazing, and they make it easy to carry what you need.
