Great rant Adam. I feel very similar. I don't really identify with the "EXPO" crowd. I consider myself a Back-Country Adventure Specialist.
Pics from one of my 5-day solo trips to Death Valley. Basic vehicle/ self rescue stuff, backpacking and standard camping gear are all that I require.

That's just gross.
Why not do a sponge bath?

But seriously I wear bdu pants khaki or green ( my only two I own ) due to its usefulness. lots of pockets, they're made of a hybrid rip-stop material so they dry fast when wet and stay cool. But I usually just wear a T shirt on top. So guess that makes me half and half?
On a side note I wear khaki bdu pants for work almost 6 days out of the week, to me it's normal. The pair i wear when I go wheel or whatever are actually old work pants.
x2 on the BDU pants. They only come in so many colors. They are excellent.
Great range of motion and tough material that isn't subject to catastrophic tearing. I use a lot of hiking / cycling / clothing in combination with BDU pants. I find the mix works great.
Also, if I'm going to be hiking, I typically will wear under armor boxers, basketball shorts (nylon--dries fast!), and mountain gaiters, to keep rocks and shit out of my shoes. This combination of clothing provides maximum range of motion for the legs, especially for high stepping / climbing and outstanding air flow to keep dry and cool. I've spent years learning and trying different things. I know what works for me.
