Gramicci Joshua Tree G Pant : Pocket Perfect

I know micro fibers and tech fabrics are the way to go for hiking gear, but I just can't do it. Fair enough for outerwear, but my pants need to be cotton.

Gramicci's Joshua Tree G Pant is my new favorite pant, and not just because they run a bit big and I can fit into a size smaller than I normally need.

I like them because they're comfortable, the cotton has just a hint of spandex - which gives the pant just the type of stretch I need to move around, and they have plenty of pockets (two snap-enclosure back pockets, two front pockets--each has a coin pocket, a hand pocket, and on top, a snap-enclosure pocket).

When I first got these pants I wore them every day until I finally had to watch them. I love the mid rise. It's still totally modest, but more of an athletic cut that many outdoor pants. I also like that the pant run long, and the gusseted inseam allows me more freedom of movement than ordinary pants. Most of all, I love how soft the material is. The fabric looks like a heavy canvas, but it's actually lightweight. It's as if Gramicci took the pant out to the riverside and pounded it with rocks so that it arrived to me already broken in. Love, love love that.

The pants come in a cool slate blue and in khaki. They're also convertible. If I need to wade across a stream or just cool down, I can roll up the pant legs and snap them into place.

Bottom Line: Exactly the type of pant I want for hiking, daily wear, camping, travel, and everything else.--E.D. (July 08)
