For active travel in cool climates Thunderbolt jeans are an excellent choice. Despite the ‘jeans’ tag, they’re not denim, but a technical fabric which is wind-resistant, water-resistant and dirt-resistant on the outside while comfortable on the inside thanks to its soft lining and four-way stretch. So you can wear them all day, sightseeing in the city or hiking in the hills, and they still look good when you go to a bar in the evening.
When testing these trousers, we found the material in front of the fly zip did not hold its shape; depending on your build and waistline, a belt may be required.

Missions to Mars aren’t the only dreams engineers are carrying around in their pulsing grey matter. These Active Junky selections turn yesterday’s imaginings into relevant products ready to wear and carry now.
Walk it. Ride it. Get on the next jet to nowhere and you’re ready with this Portland designed-and-sewn pant. Active Junky plowed in to life, powered by Schoeller Dryskin soft-shell fabric with integrated NanoSphere treatment. Even without a Nobel Prize, you’ll turn the mysteries of the sub-molecular cosmos into a great fitting, nearly-armored pair that tips the scales at only about a pound. Testers loved the unhemmed approach to getting started with a waistband that’s more for via ferrata than franks and tatter tots. Fit trim with straight legs and a stealth right rear pocket, Thunderbolt Original Jeans still allow four-way stretch to escape with your anatomy feeling good and your style more than intact. Other than a pair of boardshorts, this product caps off your quick-escape packing list even if nasty weather is anticipated. Call it on the money. And on the mark.
Best For: Casual to commute to travel as a quiver-of-one pant vetted by demanding reviewers at Active Junky
