Hiking pants for adventures big and small
When you’re ready to hit the trail, it’s important to have the right gear so you can focus on the ground underfoot and the views in front of you. Add comfort and peace of mind to your loadout with the right pair of hiking pants.
The first thing you should know about hiking pants? They’re not just for hiking. Versatility is the name of the game: from durable leggings that can take you from the couch to the gym, to convertible pants ready for unexpected changes in temperature - be prepared with a pair of pants that’ll keep you comfortable, wherever the map leads.
With versatility comes practicality. Designed with trail-ready features like articulated knees or a gusseted crotch, mobility comes first in hiking pants. Weather-proof options like durable water repellent coatings, waterproofing, windproofing and leg zips prepare you for surprises on the go.
When it comes to materials, nylon is a staple across the board with enormous versatility and durability. Polyester dries quickly and is often used as a recycled material. For a stretchy fit, look for spandex or elastane. Cotton is naturally breathable and odour-free (though pants with an antimicrobial treatment will also keep you feeling fresh).
