The 100 Year Pants Are Designed to Get You Through the Century

Adventure and clothing brand Vollebak has released a pair of 100 Year Pants following the success of the 100 Year Hoodie, which debuted a few seasons ago.

Claiming to have created a garment that can last for a century is pretty bold, but Vollebak is confident its over-engineered, military-grade pants are the pair you might just have for the rest of your (presumably) long life. Also, they’re fireproof.

That’s right. Fireproof.

Crafted from a material originally created to enable military members to literally walk through fire, when the pants come into contact with a flame, the pants’ special middle layer expands to 1,000-times (and looks a lot like a time-lapse of plants growing). This middle layer also provides a protective barrier to keep you cool, even when the environment is decidedly not. What’s better, each seam in the pant is positioned to move with your legs, whether you’re scaling a mountainside, bungee jumping from your favorite bridge, or simply lounging around after a long day of work.

“Building a pair of pants that can survive 100 years forces you to ask different questions during the design and development process,” says Vollebak co-founder Steve Tidball. “We spent two years exploring questions ranging how and where pants break down and fail after extended wear, to what challenges and situations clothing might need to respond to in the next century. The design of our 100 Years Pants draws on insights from clothing worn by astronauts and military personnel, as well as the newest material technologies.”

Aside from their staunch durability, the 100 Year Pants are ready for all sorts of outdoor adventures. With a comfortable and soft fit, wind- and water-repellent protection, and abrasion resistance, as well as a surprising amount of breathability and flexibility, Vollebak’s pants have taken usual failure points into account in order to give you a fault-free pair of britches. The 100 Year Pants are finished off with stainless steel accents, ankle protection, large zipped leg vents, and a total of five pockets.

It retails at $645, which considering its lifespan and protection, is really nothing to argue about. The 100 Year Pants are so popular, in fact, that some of the sizes in its first release have sold out already.

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
