SIG SAUER - Never Settle

Prometheus Design Werx – Raider Field Pant

New for 2018, San Francisco based specialty adventure products company Prometheus Design Werx debuts their Raider Field Pant 5050RS. Built as a rugged field pant, this style is a non-cargo design in a clean utility appearance, built for the outdoors and today’s active EDC user in mind.

A total of 11 pockets to stash and organize as little or as many EDC items as needed. The tried and true US MILSPEC 5050 NYCO ripstop fabric is durable and breathes without weighing the user down. Dedicated EDC Tool Pockets, dual no-twist custom made delta rings for keychain-carabiner clip points, 4 welt pockets and double layer articulated reinforced knees round out these pant’s features. Produced with industrial grade triple needle stitching on all major seams. Designed, cut and sewn in California, USA.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We designed and created a versatile and easily worn field pant style, that would be at home in the 4×4, trail, range, workshop and to the pub. The 5050 NYCO rip stop it’s built in has been a favored fabric that our Chief Designer has used for almost 18 years now. It’s almost a perfect everyday weight in variety of conditions, breathes well and holds up in the wilderness to the street. Our feature set is becoming more familiar now to our customers and suits today’s smart, well equipped back country EDCer. Dialed more towards outdoor use than our EDC Pant, the Raider drew its inspriation from vintage military dungarees and utilities. We reimagined what something like that might look today. The horizontal hand pockets in this design clears pack, to work, to 1st line type belts. While this run is in the 5050 NYCO rip stop, we plan on offerin this same style in a few different fabrics. This pant is current the PDW Staff favorite at work and in the field.”

The Raider Field Pant 5050RS will be an evergreen seasonal style for Prometheus Design Werx. They will be available in Dark Arid Earth, Machine Mineral Gray and Dark Leaf Green.


The PDW Raider Field Pant 5050RS will be available for purchase on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 12:00 noon PST via their website,

    Great looking designs and made in USA. Wonder how I haven’t heard about them before today. I wouldn’t mind throwing a pair of their EDC Pants into the routine.

    They look awesome. I only wish more companies made 36 length, there are tall guys out there. This is the style I like, non cargo, clean lines, multiple color options, and double front pockets. Right now the only thing I can find that fits this and offers 36 length are 5.11 Ridgeline. If anyone knows of others, I would love options.

      FWIW, I found that the TAD Gear / Triple Aught Design version which Patrick previously designed ran a little long and worked fine for a tall user. Have gotten a lot of life out of the NYCO fabric and the styling and functionality of his designs are superb.

      Also, OxCart was producing pants which also were more than sufficient for me. But I agree it would be nice for more tall options.

      (If anyone at PDW is reading, would love it if a version of the OD twill legionnaire style pants made a resurgence!)

    Have been running their GuideCloth pants at work without a break for weeks on end. I’m usually dubious of non-RipStop pants, but these have held up perfectly. I will be going after these in all colors.

    Slightly off topic, does anyone know what shoes are pictured?

    The PDX EDC pants are the best I have ever worn.
