Moves right

Great articulation in the knees, pocket location and depth works very well and enough movement in the crotch for relaxed hiking and shooting movement.

This is my first pair of pants from Beyond and they made a great first impression.

Top quality

Personally I think a lot of time went into the design of the A5 light BC pants , like the A5 light rig shorts I have from beyond clothing the quality speaks for its self just amazing well worth every penny 😊

Best technical pants I own

First piece of Beyond clothing I own and was not disappointed at all. You can feel the quality in these pants. I am fairly rough on clothing and have no doubt these will last a very long time


Durable for sure. I've ridden horses with these bad boys, skated in empty swimming pools, hiked paddle boards into the backcountry, and have fallen into the drink wearing them. They dry quickly and the hold up to abuse. No sign of aging even after over a year of regular wear.

High Quality Kit (HQT)- A5 Rig Light Backcountry Pant

I received these recently and wanted to wait until after I had used them in the field to review... so here we go!

First- Customer Service:
As always, BC continues to deliver. The website said that they were out of my size in Coyote, so I decided to give them a call to see if there was a restock scheduled. I spoke to Mandy about my Mission and she confirmed that these pants would be a great choice. She checked on the restock status for me and ended up pulling a pair in my size from their reserve stock. In addition, she still offered me my professional discount and even threw in a pair of Crye kneepads she had laying around (They dont sell those, but they happened to be there for some reason). Mandy is awesome, be like Mandy.
Second: The Pants
These are hands down my favorite pants that I have fielded to date, having previously worn Crye G3 AW, Patagonia, and 511. You can tell that these pants were made with care and are built to last. They are rugged, and after 5-6 days of hard work in the field, they look like brand new. You can tell that everything about the design was thoroughly thought out. The crye kneepads fit perfectly, and the gaiters help keep unwanted stuff out (including water). Pockets galore on these pants that are placed methodically. Zippers, and stitching are top notch and the four-way stretch nylon dries quickly. It all makes sense. Listen, I could talk about these all day, but if you are on the fence, commit and make the jump. You will not be disappointed.
Final Thoughts:
After experiencing BC's customer service and fielding the A9 Element Shirt / A5 Rig Light Backcountry Pants, I can honestly say that you have a life customer. Top Notch, High Quality Kit. Thank you! I'm looking forward to many adventures down the road; rocking Beyond Clothing
