Off Grid Pants
Hard-wearing utility pants built for self-sufficiency.
- Built from hard-wearing Italian cotton canvas
- Six pockets and two gadget loops
- Reinforced seat with two layers of material
Your great-great grandfather lived off grid. Your children’s children will live off grid. So the question is, could you? If you had to start from scratch, build a house, generate your own energy, plant crops, find your own water, and raise a chicken or two?
Today we are truly plugged into the matrix – with the electrical grid, running water, gas, and Amazon all on tap. But what if the grid is a blip? After all, we survived for two million years without it. With many predicting wars over natural resources in the not-too-distant future, being disconnected from the production of everything we rely on for survival doesn’t feel like a great idea.
So our Off Grid range is built for a future in which you have to rebuild your life with your bare hands. Built from military strength canvas, with rope-tied ankles, a crazily tough reinforced seat, air vents, giant pouch pockets, storm flaps and gadget loops, the Off Grid Pants are incredibly hard-wearing, low-maintenance pants that are easy to clean, easy to dry, and hard to damage.
These are tough, low-maintenance pants
Every pair of Off Grid Pants is built from a heavy-duty Italian cotton designed to balance strength and comfort. Weighing 395g/m2 and being incredibly densely woven, the material has a structure that’s similar to the hard-wearing cotton canvas used to build military tents. It has a high tensile strength and scores 5/5 in abrasion resistance tests. But because it’s cotton it’s soft and breathable next to your skin.
The seat is double layered and stitched 5 times
The seat of your pants is normally one of the first parts to break down because it’s put under more stress than other areas. That’s why we’ve reinforced the seat of the Off Grid Pants with a double layer of material that’s kept in place by five lines of thick stitching. So even if you've swapped out the sofa for a fallen tree trunk, your pants aren’t going to wear out.
Elasticated rope-tied waistband
The pants are built with an elasticated rope-tied waistband, so they work like sweatpants. The ends of the rope are finished with macramé knots just like the cuffs. And we’ve also added 5 belt loops if you need to secure the pants even tighter. There’s a zipped fly and 4 air vents at the hips. The vents are concealed by storm flaps and protected by a soft, stretchy mesh, allowing air to flow through while keeping dust and insects out.
Built for comfort in any season
Building the Off Grid Pants from heavy-duty cotton means that they feel most like soft denim. The pants are also soft and unstructured to give you freedom of movement. The cotton will keep you warm in winter and cool and comfortable in summer. And if your clothes washing routine has reduced down to a bowl of hot water once in a while, these are low-maintenance pants that are easy to clean, easy to dry, and hard to damage.
The cuffs are rope-tied for versatility
We’ve constructed the cuffs with a rope-tied system which lets you adjust the pants depending on the conditions you find yourself in. Pulling the cords tight will create a seal between your legs and the elements, while loosening them will let air flow in. The pants can also be rolled up both to adjust the length and to conceal the cord if you prefer. Each cuff is reinforced with six lines of stitching. And the cords are finished with macramé, an ancient ‘square knotting’ technique dating back to Babylonian times. There were no grids back then.
Two giant pouch pockets on the front of the pants
The pockets on our Off Grid Pants are built for versatility. Two huge front thigh pockets act as storage pouches that can handle maps, tools, flasks or spare kit. There are two large side pockets, and two back pockets protected by storm flaps. In between the two back pockets are two gadget loops so you can attach equipment like firelighters, paracord or a multitool. All the pockets fasten shut with heavy-duty metal snap fasteners designed to last.
The Off Grid range
As parts of our planet become increasingly difficult to live on, and we’re forced into new and unknown terrain, we’re going to need solutions to help us. So our Off Grid range is a system of clothing we’ve designed to help you live remotely. It doesn’t matter whether you’re going off grid for a weekend, a year, or you’re selling up and unplugging for good. With vests and jackets made from the same stuff as body armour, high-strength utility pants and shorts, and the strongest rain shell ever built, we’ve focused on toughness, comfort and utility to help you live remotely and survive off the land.
