Of all the things in our closet to be picky about, few items make us more discerning than a pair of real pants. For one, they’re pants—who wants to wear ’em in the first place?! But as most of us know, they’re undoubtedly difficult to shop for. Finding the perfect, never-taking-them-off pair is like finding a needle in a haystack—they need to be not too stiff, not too flexible, not too long, not too short, and definitely not too restrictive. In the words of Goldilocks, they need to be, “Just right.” Good luck, lol!
Rather than embarking on a laborious quest to find your “just right” pants, take a hint from the internet and get a pair that have sold out not once, not twice, but a whopping 28 times and counting. Yep, you read that right. The Outdoor Voices RecTrek Pants ($98) have sold out nearly 30 times for their Goldilocks fit and feel, taking all the chore out of putting on pants in the first place.
What’s so great about these prized pantaloons? Scroll through the 800 5-star reviews and you’ll find that their versatility is a stand-out feature. Made from Outdoor Voice’s tough-yet-comfy RecTrek material, they can be worn for pretty much anything. That lightweight fabric is stretchy and forgiving, pliable enough to give unrestrictive movement whether you’re commuting to the office or chilling at home. But it’s also super durable, made to dry fast when things get sweaty or rainy. So whether you’re four hours into a hike or four minutes into a Hot Girl Walk around the block, they’ve got you covered.
“It’s comfortable and it beads water and spills right off of it,” writes one Outdoor Voices customer. “My absolute favorite pant when walking, hiking, or biking! And the best part is that they are so comfy, I do not find myself even thinking about taking them off when I get home.”
“I wear them hiking, on planes, to the office, climbing, and on week-long river trips,” another shopper writes. “They’re comfortable and versatile to the extreme.”
And they don’t sacrifice fashion for function. They’re a technical pant you’ll actually want to wear, sporting tapered, fitted legs, cropped ankles, and—most importantly—a stretchy, high waistband. The ankle-dusting length means they can be paired with just about any shoes for any occasion. And if you think they only come in the outdoor apparel usual suspects (boring gray and khaki) think again. Outdoor Voices just released three new earthy seasonal hues that can be mixed and matched as you please, including a minimalist bone white, leafy conifer green, and a rusty saddle red.
“Can’t wear them a day without someone saying, ‘Where did you get your pants?,'” another customer writes. “I have three colors with no intentions to stop!”
Trust us, these pants are *TikTok voice* “Perfect, perfect, perfect.” And they’re back in stock—but definitely won’t be for long. If the other 28 times these pants have flown off OV’s virtual shelves are any indication, they’re sure to sell like hot cakes. Get a pair of the coveted RecTrek Pants here and never pine for “Just right”-pants again.
