The K5 - Velox Light Softshell Pant is a lightweight alternative to our K5 - Testa Softshell Pant, designed for active use in warmer weather. The durable 4-way stretch nylon shell protects you from the wind and rain, while remaining breathable for moisture transport.
The durable, 4-way stretch nylon shell is not only designed to move with you, but also provides protection from rough terrain and bushes.
Constructed with a gusseted crotch and deep articulated knees, allowing for maximum maneuverability.
Pockets include zippered hand pockets, partial frame stitch side, & back pockets, and zippered cell phone front-thigh pockets.
An adjustable gaiter built-in to the bottom hem prevents rise-up which helps seal out the elements.

First of all I'll start with fit, I'm 6'5" tall about 225lbs and wear 34" waist. I purchased the Medium Long and they fit great, the stretch is absolutely amazing, range of motion is not hindered what so ever. They fit true to size, they don't hike up your leg when you sit down at all, which is bothersome to me. I took these out today in 82° with 80% percent humidity, I opened up the vents and they were pretty good.
For being a a Softshell they don't stick to my leg when I sweat which is nice. The construction of these pants are spectacular, they held up very well against thorn bushes, branches and crawling through a few densely covered spots I found off the trail. The dirt wiped right off and kept on trucking. I was wearing my TAD Talon Guide Shorts underneath in case I got too uncomfortable/hot but I didn't shed them off. I can't wait to keep putting these through the ringer and will definitely be ordering a few more pairs. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants great pants for hard outdoor use.
High quality pants that fit true to sign
Very lightweight, fits to size, will probably add a few more to my closet.
These pants are amazingly comfortable, and the cut is probably the best I've ever seen on a pair of pants. Most "athletic cuts" are really just baggy. These pants are what I'd consider a true athletic cut. Good room in the seat and thigh, so if you squat these won't be painted on, while keeping a normal waist size.
Awesome outdoor pants for the winter here in SC!
