Would not recommend hiking in jeans, or any cotton for that matter. There are better fabrics to choose from these days when it comes to that. If you're picky enough to not go because of a little bad weather, then I can't see you being very tolerable of hiking in hot/heavy denim.

I just saw this today, and since I'm in the Navy I had to laugh. $238 for something that we pay $30 for? Really? And they aren't even the "official" pattern like they say it is. WTF hipsters?!

Fanatics.

I wouldnt reccomend doing what I do. I wear my life on my back for nearly a month at a time, so being able to live in a single pair of pants is a godsend. (looking presentable if I decide to wander into a town) that being said, hiking for a weekend you would be alot more comfortable in more technical fabrics.

after wearing slim RRL and some LLBean Katadins for a month strait...both of them come out looking very good....but smelling really bad

camo was in style at least four years ago. I doubt you'll catch a hipster in that.

Stop being a hiking elitist. You do realize lots of people go on day-hikes because it's enjoyable and relaxing? I'm not going to go out hiking in a thunderstorm, fuck that, I don't hike to punish myself I hike because it's fun and I like being in the woods. I may have only hiked 100 miles or so in the past year but I did all of them in jeans and was never uncomfortable so I have no clue what you're talking about.

It's my feeling that people who haven't attended Harvard shouldn't wear Harvard sweat shirts. I think it's a little tacky. It's also my feeling that people who haven't served in the military shouldn't wear military like garb. I don't know why, but it feels wrong. I also find it ironic that many people upon finishing their tours,never want to wear cameo again and some people who have never considered a visit to the sand box want to look like they have. Just my opinion.

Somebody says this every two weeks around here. It makes no sense. Military clothing is pervasive - trench coats, peacoats, aviator sunglasses, and bomber jackets come to mind, but there are more examples. I suspect that a third or more of all men's clothing is influenced in some way by the military. I don't see what the problem is. Also, if you are referring to camo, hunters also wear camo, not just the military.

Hunting camo is different, though.

I make a distinction between something that has been influenced by military garments and the article in question, which seems to be a copy of sorts. It even references The US Navy in it's ad.

This phenomenon is explained as thus.

A sucker is born every minute.

Never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity.
