    First off, I am in no way associated with Dubinky. Didn't plan to give the Colorado pants a rain test but it happened. I rode 2 hours in a Georgia frog drowner and was pleasantly surprised on how dry I was. The only place I was wet was in the crotch area. I've never owned a pair of riding pants that this wasn't the case. If I had my Dakars on I would been soaked everywhere. Really liking thee pants.

    Hi,

    Let me know what your seeing on your end and I'll get it fixed.

    Is 36-38 your actual waist size or jean size.

    Thanks and sorry for the issues with the webpage
    Ben

    Ok works now. I tried to pull down a size and it only gave me medium before. Working now
    pants size 36. riding gear is usually tight at 36 due to braces and shorts with padding so 38 . looks like size large will work
    thanks

    Bob,
    Good. I would guess the larges will work, but maybe just measure your waist with a tape to be sure and compare the the sizing chart. Some times jean sizing can be very misleading.

    Let me know if you have any questions

    Thanks Ben

    Hey Ben

    No worries, I'm still in good shape with the pants I have, just curious is all.

    I googled Dubinky Wells and cant fnd relevant info. I haven't ridden Green River before,(Moab mostly and the SLC area only a little) but would like to check it out next time we're there. Got any links for us?

    Those are some big wells...

    It really is an amazing place and one of the few in the Moab area that is not packed full of people. The riding is great and there is a little of everything for miles on end. You would have to spend a lot of time to be familiar with all the riding between Green River and the south side of the area.

    Here are some links about rides in the area and also a post with several videos and a little history about why we are called Dubinky:

    Article from the Moab times about the history of the area:


    The Way Sam Remembers It
    11.10.05 - 12:14 am
    Southeastern Utah has its share of funny names. How

    they got them has always been interesting to me, and I am learning more

    all the time.

    Even though I have been to Dubinky Well, and the

    nearby ranch many times, most travelers on the Dubinky Road don’t even

    know about the old line shack, since it is hidden in a nearby wash and

    is not visible from the Dubinky Road. I recently re-read Grand

    Memories, and got a hint about the name. I quote from that interesting

    volume now:

    “One cold night two brothers, Red and Dubinky

    Anderson, camped at Valley City. They had heard that the big house (the

    abandoned hotel) was haunted, but thought they were brave enough not to

    believe it. In the middle of the night they saw a woman move slowly

    down the stairs. It frightened them so badly that they ran out of the

    house fast and kept running for a long way. One brother, Red Anderson,

    made his way to Thompson. A few men went back to Valley City to

    investigate. They found a badly frightened woman who had hidden herself

    when the brothers arrived, and had been trying to sneak out of the

    house without awakening the freighters.

    “The men tracked the other brother, Dubinky. He had

    traveled barefoot over rough, cold country for more than ten miles. The

    place where he finally stopped was once a cow camp, with cabin and

    corrals built by a cattleman from Green River. Arthur Ekker bought the

    cattle and took over the range. Cecil Thomson bought the cattle from

    Ekker and used the cabin and corrals as a line shack. The range and

    camp, on the old Dead Horse Point road, are known as Dubinky.”

    Whether the place was named for Dubinky Anderson, or

    whether Anderson was nicknamed Dubinky after hiding out there running

    from a ghost, is not known, at least to me.

    There is a dry wash just south of the Dubinky

    windmill and well. Up that wash a few hundred yards is the old Dubinky

    Ranch. It consists of a one-room cabin built from railroad ties, a

    dugout cabin north of the wash, and a cedar (juniper) corral. The

    corral was built by burying huge cedar posts right against each other,

    with the whole thing laced together with cable.

    Former Green River cowboy, Loren Million, said in an

    oral history a few years ago that he had worked and lived at Dubinky

    when the ranch was run by Art Ekker. He said that he had found a grove

    of the tallest cedar trees he had ever seen, out on Horsethief Point.

    He cut a bunch of them down and dragged them behind his horse to

    Dubinky Ranch where he built the corral. He found the cable at the site

    of an abandoned cable-tool drill site, and dragged it back to the ranch

    to tie the cedar posts together.

    I stayed a night or two there in the late 1940s,

    while spending some time with my cousin Vaughn Taylor, who ran the

    Cecil Thomson ranch from the headquarters at Horsethief Ranch I thought

    it was one of the neatest places I ever camped.

    Adrien and I have visited the abandoned ranch a

    number of times. It is much the same as I remembered it from my

    boyhood. Its isolation and invisibility from the road have kept it from

    the vandals over the years, and Loren’s tall cedar corral was so

    sturdily built that it would still hold a bunch of wild desert cattle

    or horses.

    Not only the water well and ranch named Dubinky, but

    the area around the place is littered with a beautiful agate rock named

    by geologists and rock hounds as “Dubinky Chert.” We have

    polished some of the hard agate in a tumbler and it makes a beautiful

    polished finished product.

    I’ve been told that the area around Dubinky is the

    only place in the country where this particular type of flint is found.

    Its value to early Native Americans is proven by the finding of arrow

    and spear points made of Dubinky Chert in many Anasazi sites all over

    the western United States.

    The next time you take a drive over the Dubinky Well

    road, turn up the sandy wash bottom just south of the well and take a

    look at the old line shacks and corral. Just don’t do them any harm.

    They’ve withstood the test of time pretty well to date, particularly

    Loren’s cedar post corral.

    Cool!

    Thanks Ben. Planning a trip out that way next year and I'm sure we can fit the area into our plans. Love abandoned towns, houses, mills, mines etc.

    Hi Ben, these pants look good!

    Just wondering, haven't read yet, are these water resistant? I seen they are 4 seasons.
    Is there a liner that comes off for hot weather?
    Also, I take it no armor included, do all armor fit?
    Can I use the sample code still and is there still an ADV discount?
    Should I wait for new 2013 pants? Added benefits to design?

    Thanks.

    When are the lighter colors going to be available? I like the pants but not in black! I'd hate to have to go buy a pair of Dakars just because they are Silver/white.

    Sorry for the delay I was in Utah doing this........:clap

    So back to questions:lol3

    Sorry right now I have my hands full just getting these made so I dont see any additional colors coming soon:cry

    Mint Julep.....

    The 2012 Colorado Pants do not have an option for armor, however the 2013 Colorado Pants will have the option and I will be selling Forcefiled CE rated Knee and Hip armor. They should be available in the next few weeks, I will post full details on the new pants when they are ready to sell.

    There is no liner, the pants are designed to fully zip up and be almost wind proof in cold weather and then there are 4 massive vents that open the entire length of the upper thigh to flow tons of air for warmer weather, so the goal when I made these was to have more of a "do it all" pant. This also provided excellent durability for trail/enduro riders and great crash protection for DS/street because the pant shell is 100% nylon, either 840/1680 opposed to Nylon or mesh on many pants.

    As to water resistance see this post from a few pages back.....


    Thanks guys, let me know if you have any other questions and happy riding spring is here:wink:

    I am starting to get the 2013 stuff in and it is now listed on the webpage, ready to be sold:deal. As soon as I get time (I am still trying to get ready for Canyonlands) I am going to do a post highlighting the new 2013 Colorado Pant. I think people will really like it and I now have XL and Medium Tall sizes:wink:.

    Check the new stuff out at Dubinky.com
