About Us
Red Ants Pants was founded in 2006 by Sarah Calhoun. Tired of wearing men’s work pants that didn’t fit, Calhoun designed pants that would fit, function and flatter working women. The pants are made in the USA and that will not change. Red Ants Pants is based out of White Sulphur Springs, Montana where the storefront, distribution center, and international headquarters all reside in an historic saddle shop. Known for their grass roots marketing efforts, including ‘Tour de Pants’, the direct sales business model is proving effective, even in tough economic times.
In 2011 Red Ants Pants put on the first annual Red Ants Pants Music Festival, where 6,000 fans came to dance their pants off in a cow pasture listening to some top bands including Lyle Lovett. The Red Ants Pants Foundation was formed as the non-profit branch of the project, in support of women’s leadership, working family farms and ranches, and rural communities. The festival continues its success into the third year with Merle Haggard headlining the 2013 event.
With a recent trip to the Whitehouse and keynoting at several national speaking events, Calhoun continues to be amazed how this company has become so much more than just a pair of pants. “It’s neat to show that we can do big things in small towns.” she reflects. A new Red Ants Pants ad campaign that profiles kickass women of history uses a tagline that resonates with the culture of the company; “Step into these pants and see what you can do.”

Finally. Designed by women, for women.
We are based out of White Sulphur Springs, a small ranching town in central Montana. Here at Red Ants Pants LLC, we are breaking a very old tradition. Ever since the gold rush, women have
been wearing men's work clothes when we've needed to get serious work done.
Founded in 2006, we thought it was about time to provide another option. Red Ants Pants
