Men’s Gore-Tex Infinium Anything Cargo Pant

If you have a medium bit of cash lying around you may wish to check out these new 686 pants. Actually, they’re not totally new, they are an upgrade of the 686 Anything Cargo Pant. The company says they upgraded the pants with “GORE Infinium fabric with WINDSTOPPER enabling Technology, YKK Aquaguard Waterproof Zippers, stretch gusset and back yoke, 3M reflective inner taping, and a new Snap Hem Adjustment.”

These upgraded 686 pants feature an Innie + Outie Lacing System, a snap hem adjustment around the ankles, and intelligently designed pockets for your gear.

Many reviewers seem to love the breathability and these were highly praised for being great in rain and wind conditions. They also mention the pockets often using happy words to describe them, because there are so many of them and they don’t make the wearer look bulky. 

What makes these 686 pants stand out?

As easy to pack as it is comfortable to wear.

Designed to resist light rain and snow, which means light rain beads off and rolls off, so you stay comfortable.

Moisture from sweat vapor can easily escape through the innovative membrane, so your body’s microclimate stays balanced.

Don’t-even-need-to-worry-about-it, windproof. When an icy wind picks up and you™re miles from home, that’s exactly what you should be relying on.

Modern Fit – Made to move. A regular fit through the waist, seat and thigh with a highly articulated leg.
