I own probably 20 pairs of pants, each one designed for a specific purpose or event. (Though I’ve never figured out the jogger, the most useless of bottom layers).

If I could get that number down to, say, three, I’d be happy and so would my overstuffed closet. So I’m eyeing the just-launched and incredibly versatile Compass Pant from Olivers — it’s essentially a chino/commuter/travel pants combo that could get me to the office, through an important meeting and then walk me home after an active night (or onto a flight).

We dig Olivers. Designed in Los Angeles, the company makes forward-thinking sportswear and casual gear that’s both versatile and minimalist. 

Olivers is calling the Compass an “adventure pant with style.” What that really means is that it has a lot of the technical properties you’d want if you’re doing something active or in the midst of a rough commute, but it’s also nice enough to wear around the office or out at night. 

The Compass is made from a lightweight ripstop nylon (plus 3% spandex for stretch and comfort) that’s tear resistant and covered with an anti-UV finish that’s water repllent and quick drying. The pants feature front and back zip pockets. 

Available now in three colors (military olive, blue steel, khaki), the Compass Pant retails for $128.
