California-based Triple Aught Design (TAD Gear), a popular manufacturer of outdoor and casual wear with a military-tactical flair, has expanded its Covert collection of utility trousers with the new TAD Covert XC Pant. There are currently three models in the lineup, namely the TAD Covert RS Pant, last year’s TAD Covert DC Pant and the new TAD Covert XC Pant. The new version has the same cut as the TAD Covert DC Pant, but differs in its less dense and stretchy materials..
Unlike the TAD Covert DC Pant, which uses a predominantly heavyweight cotton material (406g/m2), the TAD Covert XC Pant is made with a lighter weight Stretch Canvas (XC) blend and stretch fabric, which contains up to 40% cotton, 28% nylon, 27% Cordura nylon and 5% elastane, and the total weight does not exceed 194 g/m2. The material is additionally treated with a water-repellent composition.
The overall cut of the new casual trousers is unchanged from the DC version. Pants include a classic waist zone with reinforced belt loops and a front fastener with metal buttons, a reinforced gusset, reinforced profiled knees and reinforced piping along the bottom edge. In addition, the design includes eight pockets, including a pair of back pockets, slit hip pockets and main slit pockets with two small pockets inside.
As of today, the new TAD Covert XC Pant is a utilitarian casual pant only available in two solid colors to choose from (Black, Raven) and is priced at US$155 before shipping. It is possible to order a novelty exclusively through the official online store of Triple Aught Design.
