Introducing the North Bound Pants, the perfect 2-1 everyday pants that bring you comfort of performance pants, the crisp silhouette of office pants, and made with technical fibers which fight odor and offer a dynamic stretch.

These are one pair of pants that will change your wardrobe routine in many ways...but our favorite part is versatility combined with the technical fabric- allowing you to switch up your look with a simple hidden pull string. Breathable tencel ensures you don't break into sweat, and if you do, the air texturized fabric wicks away odors. One sustainable pair of pants made to take from the city to the gravel.

The Northbound pants are one pair of you can wear virtually Anywhere. Made with sustainable natural fibers with synthetic finishing to enhance your comfort and fight odor. We didn't overlook a single detail, focusing on using high grade thread for stitching, and guaranteeing the textile has sufficient stretch for maximum movement.

              

Tencel is a natural fiber derived from wood cellulose with high sustainability characteristics. Exceptionally strong woven fibers provide a soft feel which is comparable to rayon , but with higher breathable rating. The 24% cotton allows further stretch and gives the pants a crisp look which can be worn in a formal setting.

Durable Zipper  closure ensures a life of of durability for the zipper. We purchase our YKK zippers from Georgia USA, which is the best known zippers brand focused on quality, from tape tab and teeth.

Nail Head Buttons We used military grade Nail head front button closures, which are usually used to produce denim jeans and work wear. The typical 4 hole thread closure become loose over time, and eventually fall off. Not with the NOBO Pants.

Designed with a simple aesthetic, our goal was to have sufficient pocket space without giving the pants a 'sporty look.' We kept it simple by featuring 2 large front pocket, paired with a sleek invisible zipper by the outer seam of the pocket. The security pocket is 8.5" and large enough to stash anything from your passport to smart phone.

Two back pockets with button closure give the pants a clean office look, while a removable waterproof pouch adds a level of versatility when on the move.

Carrying around 4 credit cards, $58 cash, keys, sunglasses, 87 cents in change, and your charger- IT CAN GET TOUGH.

We designed this simple, easy access PVC nylon pouch. This basic accessory will change how you keep your small essentials safe. 100% water proof and sealed with Aqua Guard zippers. Removable, and compatible with any pants, not just the NOBO pants.

   

In August 2017, Alpine Garments was born in Denver, Colorado. What started as an experiment to find better hiking materials, turned into a passion to create some of the best technical outdoor gear. Founded by 3 friends J. We turned our experience in Retail and Engineering into Alpine Garments.

With the launch of the NorthBound Pants, our goal is to introduce a truly timeless product, cut from the best technical fibers currently on the market. We're working directly with the experienced textile mills to provide the highest quality materials. Using our experience in fashion, we teamed up with production partners who pay attention to details and fit. Join our Journey to introduce the next phase in quality technical gear.

Risks and challenges

Working directly with textile mills in Europe, and cut and sew factory in China, we've ensured our timeline fits the time needed to finalize tech packages, order fabric, produce the pants, and deliver. We've created initial samples in house, sent over tech packages and had our manufacturer re create the pants to ensure the details are fine tuned. With logistics in place, we're able to realistically conclude on the delivery date we're confident we can comfortably deliver in October 2018. We believe in transparency, and prioritize communication with our backers on any questions you may have.
