REI’s Sahara Convertible Pants are made of light-yet-rugged quick-dry nylon that even active boys couldn’t damage. They have an adjustable waistband for growth spurts (and hand-me-downs) and plenty of pockets (six) for treasure hunting. Changing into shorts mode? Long ankle zips make the pant legs easy to get on and off over hiking boots. $35; 8 oz. (M); rei.com
