I, like the rest you, could not wait for my latest order of Mountain Khakis. One day last week upon arriving home from class I noticed a box sitting on my doorstep. Finally! My Mountain Khakis had arrived! I ran up the stairs, ripped open the box, and started trying things on. I immediately fell in love with my new pair of Original Mountain Pants in the new Broadway Fit. It was perfect timing too, because tomorrow would be a great day to put them to the test.
Less than twenty-four hours later my new OMP’s were already wet at the ankles and smeared by muddy hands. It was the morning of a lake cleanup put on by the Watershed Committee of the Ozarks – a nonprofit organization striving to preserve and improve drinking water for Springfield and the surrounding Ozarks region. Our clean up targeted the shoreline along the beautiful Fellows Lake located just north of Springfield, MO. In just a few hours time, our dedicated group of volunteers was able to haul in bags upon bags of trash and debris.
After a morning spent walking the shoreline of Fellows Lake, I have nothing but good things to say about my new pair of OMP’s. The new Broadway fit is perfect for anyone who wants a slimmer, fitted pair of pants without sacrificing comfort and durability. The best part is, you can wear them in the field or out on the town. If you’re looking to purchase a few more pairs of pants this fall be sure to check these things out. I promise you will not be disappointed.
With great anticipation I ripped open the Mountain Khakis box containing the 6 pairs of pants that would be put to the test over the next 4 weeks. Original Mountain Pants, Canyon Cords and Teton Twills would all be pushed to their limit over the next 30 days as the 6 float chairs worked and lived in their pants.
The Redside Foundation is a newly formed non-profit that celebrates the profession of commercial guiding in Idaho.

On April 6th MK supported the Redside Foundation for a fundraiser in Moscow, Idaho. The fundraiser brought out supporters from all over the region to watch a great batch of films centered on rivers.

We have hosted the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival for a few years now and MK has been a huge supporter. The films are winter oriented and revolve around the human powered experience. It’s a great evening of films, friends and fun for the local backcountry winter sports community here in Moscow. We had around 180 come this year, which packed the local community theater. The films consisted of everything from snowboarding to big mountain skiing. We had a raffle with prizes from MK and other local vendors at intermission which really got people excited. Overall it was a great event that got students and the community stoked for snow and a great cause. Thanks MK!
