Why We Built The Backcountry Slickrock Pant

"Even with the slimmer fit, there's plenty of room at the knees for pedaling and pads. I like that the ankles unzip so I can adjust my kneepads when I need to." —Gearhead® Expert Sammy


Whether we're getting a head start on trail riding season or pushing into winter's grip, we never miss a ride thanks to the Slickrock Pant. We designed these pants with a super lightweight material that breathes with us when we're working hard, and the water-resistant treatment provides the weather protection we need. We updated the fit from the first iteration of Slickrock Pant to add more room for knee pads, and the zippered vents on the side seams line up perfectly with the thigh pockets on our bib shorts for easier snack access.

Awesome design & fit!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I first purchased the Slickrock bike short and was so in love, I just had to try the pants… skeptically though, a pant for mountain biking??? After one sunny, but still chilly spring ride, I am in love with the pants as much as I am with the shorts! Perfectly designed with the features you’d want from a pant and a great fit! I am 5’10” / 190 lbs, up 15# heavier/curvier than I normally am, (but still taller than wider by a long shot) and typically a size 14, the XL fits very well. The waist doesn’t cut in at all (yay, who likes to feel like they are being squeezed in 2 by their waistband or have unattractive rolls above your pants???), they fall at my ankle and were large enough in the leg that I never felt a frustrating pull or stretch in the material, but they aren’t loose enough where I was worried about the chain, I know… they sound like magic pants and they may be! If you want a pant that can work for mountain biking, jogging, hiking, grocery shopping, whatever… on a day with a brisk wind where you want protection, but not insulation, and a quick drying pant, this is the pant for you.

Stylish and Functional!

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought these as my outer layer for cold weather mountain biking and the fit is great! There’s room for my knee pads if I need them but they didn’t feel too baggy without knee pads either. The ankle isn’t the most fitted style but I had no issues with this. My favorite surprise was the leg vents on the thighs. Even on those cold weather days, some ventilation was nice to have once I built up some body heat. The material is slick and durable and I’m excited for many more rides in these pants. Bonus points for being stylish and functional.

5’ 3” 140 lb bought size M

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I didn’t want to spend a ton on a pair of MTB pants. Got these on sale and am very happy with them! Only complaint is that they are a little baggy around the ankles— if your short. Certainly not a deal breaker though for half the price of other MTB pant brands.

love!

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I read to "size up" on several of the reviews and in the item details. I bought a size small and they were too big. They were too big in every aspect, the hips the butt the legs the waist. I returned for an XS and they fit great. They are light weight and comfortable. I LOVE the high rise waist because I don't like low rise and I haven't since the mid 2000's when it was in style and I don't like riding a MTB with my navel out or my lower back getting sunburnt or mud all over. I'm barely 5'2 and about 110 lbs or so. I also love the movement of the fabric the 4 way stretch is fantastic and makes them so comfy. I hope they offer more colors soon!

Great, but...

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought these pants and love riding in them, but what happened to including a pocket for my cell phone? If you need to keep the leg vents, you could move them or put a mesh pocket inside to hold a phone. I hope to buy another pair in the future with more usable pockets!

Versatile pants, very comfy

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I’m a big fan of these pants. I’ve worn them mountain biking a few times, hiking, and regular day-to-day. I fell off the biking trail once and landed on some rocks and sticks, only had a couple small scratches in the fabric. I like the fit and the stretch in the material, the built-in belt is awesome, and the pockets are perfect. The only complaint I have is the little iron on embellishments came off on the first wash, even with following the instructions. Three things I think would make these even more awesome: mesh on the leg vents to keep dirt and bugs out better; at least one small cargo/lower thigh pocket for keys or a wallet; and I wish the price was more affordable because I’d definitely buy more as every day pants.

Amazing Pants

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Bought these immediately prior to an 8-day bike/barge trip to Belgium/The Netherlands. They were a last-minute buy and I hesitated over the price. Not cheap. But I LOVED them! We rode in rain the first two days - the pants did a good job of repelling water. Not waterproof but I was able to avoid putting on waterproof pants for much of the rainy period. Stretchy - YES! Give in all the right places. Fit over bike shorts - YES! I wore the pants almost every day in 50 degree+ temps and just changed out my bike shorts. No binding around the waist and the ankle cuffs were a bonus. I have a big bum compared to my waist and often have trouble with pants. They either have a big gap in the waist or don't fit over my bum. The adjustable belt solved that problem. Very comfortable. I'll probably buy another pair for hiking. Not sure what to say on sizing. I usually wear a L, needed XL with these. So maybe a bit on the small size?

Odd fit but will do

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

I'm 5'6", about 140 lbs, pretty standard size 6/28, athletic with a little booty. I tried the medium and the large. The medium fit best in the waist but the rear area was tight like leggings tight, especially stretched over chamois and I felt like I should try the large. The large fits the rear much better, especially given that we wear chamois underneath, but I had to cinch the waist so it looks quite cinched and a little baggy. I think I'll keep the large, they seem like they'll be comfortable for colder weather riding, but the sizing seems a little off.

These fit me perfectly and I am looking forward to wearing these on all the trails I walk with our dog. I love the super-thoughtful design details. Highly recommend!

Agree, great pants

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The Backcountry Slickrock pants were a great buy for me. The order came quickly and the quality is there. I usually wear a size 12 so I ordered a large. They fit well. If I was a size 14 and ordered a large, I might agree that they probably run small. The only thing I didn’t like was that the Backcountry symbol on the pant was peeling off right out of unpacking. This wasn’t enough for me to return them. I can see why they are other reviewers’ favorites. I would buy them again.
