The Best Hot Weather Pants With 16 Travel Features

The Live Lite collection is made of the brand new proprietary fabric T2X. This natural fabric is made from 4 different fibres to create a high-stretch, ultra-lightweight solution engineered to keep you comfortable and cool. These fibres interact with each other in a way that promotes the various beneficial properties of each, while offsetting their individual weaknesses. The TENCEL®, content absorbs moisture away from the skin and into the fabric fibres is perfect for hot temperatures, and is also a natural bacteria repellant that prevents bacteria from rapid growth. This allows for the pants to be worn your entire trip without any accompanying smell. The polyester content creates durability and strength for high-movement adventures, while the cotton content allows for breathability, and creates a soft natural feel. Lastly, spandex is what gives the fabric it's amazing stretch providing ultimate comfort and maneuverability. All-in-all the best fabric for hot weather wear.

 

 

Too hot for pants? We feel you! Whether you're outside on a summer day, or travelling somewhere warm, pants can be hot, sweaty, restrictive, and uncomfortable. Shorts sometimes work, but there are plenty of times when you need a little more coverage - whether that's to show up for a meeting, attend a wedding, or even hike through the bush. The “hot weather/travel pants” currently on the market are dorky, too informal, gimmicky, and made with synthetic materials that don't breathe well.

We developed the Live Lite pants specifically for travelling and hot weather wear, with a lightweight, breathable, anti-bacterial and high stretch fabric engineered to keep you comfortable and cool. We used this fabric to create various styles that put all other hot weather and travel pants to shame. By combining our years of experience in the fashion industry with our knowledge of technical fabrics, we've created pants that are both stylish and functional, with the added features you need while travelling. Pack less, travel light, Live Lite. You deserve better than zip-off pants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

The Live Lite pants keep you cool in hot weather and can be worn from business meetings to wilderness adventures, but there may be days where you can get more casual or show a little leg - but still want the same great fabric and design features. 

These shorts are made with the same T2X fabric as the Live Lite pants, plus many of the same travel features. You can receive the Journey Shorts with your current pledge by simply adding $50 to your current pledge (per pair of shorts) with no additional shipping fees. At a retail price of $89 this is a screaming deal only offered to our current Kickstarter backers. These shorts are only available as an Add On, not as a standalone pledge.

 

 

 

Help us meet our goal of $50,000!  Once we do we will unlock the colour Storm Blue. We heard your comments from our last projects and our happy to offer a blue option, but only after we reach our goal, so get pledging!  

 Our backers voted on a new colour, and Woodlands was the winner!  All pant styles, men's and women's, will be available in this colour. The Journey Shorts will not be available in this colour. 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

Dish and DUER is a start up filled with people who lead active lifestyles and recognize the need for clothing that can transition from work to play, and anything in between. We want to look and feel good, and know that our customers want the same. For these reasons we continue to innovate, design, and produce technical garments that meet the needs of active individuals.

We recognized that in addition to our current fabrics we needed a light-weight option that was appropriate for an urban setting during the warmer months. We loved the fibre make-up and performance of our No Sweat fabric, so we built on this foundation. We adjusted the composition and weaved the fibres in a different way to provide a high-stretch, lightweight solution. Once we saw the final fabric we realized that it was perfect for travel wear; comfortable, durable, and lightweight. By adding discreet features that provide convenience and security while travelling, we produced the Best Hot Weather Pants perfect for travel.

Our small company has grown because of the support of our Kickstarter backers, who helped us launch our Performance Stretch Denim in September 2014 and then our No Sweat fabric in October 2015. You asked for more, and we're thrilled to have Live Lite to offer exclusively to you.

 

"I got my jeans today. These jeans feel so awesome unlike anything I've worn before. Really nice quality. I wish I gotten another pair in Black."

- Derrick on the Performance Stretch Denim 

"Ok received mine. I would back these guys again in a heartbeat - the material is exceptional, everything down to the packaging and labels, it's seriously perfect and can rival high-end retail. Very very happy with my product."

- Arth on the No Sweat Pant 

"Received my pants on Friday. This is the second Duer kickstarter campaign I have backed and once again they have crushed it. The pants are perfect and exactly what they promised they would be. I am a lifelong Duer supporter! Thank you for bringing great jeans/pants into the world" 

- Michael Bleier on the No Sweat Pant and Performance Stretch Denim
