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.

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!
Love these pants. I get hot FAST. When I hike, I rarely even take pants along with me. However, I usually wear gators faithfully as a NOLS grad. These are the first pants that I've had that bridge that gap for me. The drawstring at the bottom serve as a gator of sorts, and the stretch material are super durable and breathe when the pockets are opened. They aren't restrictive or dopey dad-like. I am 5'7 and a 34 waist and got the M. They are a tad wide on the waist, but a belt does the trick. The drawstring at the bottom takes care of the length. Great purchase for me.
Fantastic pants. These are by far the most sturdy soft shell pants I've seen. Although thicker than other pants I still stayed plenty cool (I wore them in Africa) and they don't inhibit movement at all because of the stretch. Loads of useful pockets too, all with quality zippers.
