Bridging the space between pricey soft shell and fragile cotton, these pants are rugged enough for technical climbing days. The fabric has a dense weave that stands up to rough textured stone and has built-in give so your mobility isn't limited. The outer face is treated to shed light moisture and the synthetic fabric dries out quickly if it gets fully wet.
- Made of 88% nylon, 12% spandex, in a stretchy, but stout weave with DWR (durable water repellency) finish.
- Snap closure with internal webbing in the waistband for adjustments.
- Quarter-length inseam gusset with flat-felled seams that lie flat.
- Offset side seams with gathers to articulate the knee.
- 2 slash front pockets.
- Small hidden thigh pocket.
Wondering what to bring hiking? Even if you’re only planning to be out for a few hours on a day hike, it’s important to pack some essential items. Weather can change quickly outdoors, and something as simple as a rolled ankle might mean you’re out longer than expected.
The essentials for hiking and camping (or any activity in the backcountry) are often called “The 10 Essentials.” The 10 essentials list below is adapted from Mountaineering: Freedom of the Hills, which groups the essentials into systems.
Before you start packing
Be a smart hiker by being prepared. Knowledge and skills won’t fit in your backpack, but they’re critical to have – if you’re a beginner, check out local hiking groups and learn tips at MEC backcountry workshops. Know your route and plans before you leave, always leave a trip plan with a trusted friend, and make sure your footwear is trail-worthy and comfortable.
