Review: Triple Aught Aspect XC
Lightweight, quick-drying, with a Durable Water Repellent finish... what more do you need in a good hiking pant? Nothing, really, but the Aspect XC from Triple Aught Design gives you much, much more. To wit: a cotton/nylon/elastane fabric for a comfy, breathable fit, with cordura worked in for durability; internal organization within the front pockets; oversized belt loops; knife guards all around so the pocket corners don't wear out; burly YKK snaps; a sleek, tactical look for style on the trail and off; and extra stitching throughout, to keep these pants together for the long haul. In short, the Aspect XC has it all—for biking, hiking, camping, climbing, or any other warm-weather activity. $190; tripleaughtdesign.com.
