Tell you the truth, until several distance backpackers brought them to my attention. I've never heard of RailRiders before 2 years ago. Figured if they can hold up on a thru-hike; which is hell on clothing. They should be just what I was looking for. Time to put them to a test, in the punishing Olympic Backcountry.
