Gear Review: Mountain Hardwear Navigation Pants

These rugged, yet stylish, pants have thigh vents and removable gaiters.

Perfect for hiking, climbing, or stepping out for a microbrew, these pants are made from a stretchy Thornguard material that is rugged enough for bushwhacking yet snag- and stain-resistant enough to keep looking good. The zippered thigh vents provide instant cooling, and the removable gaiters keep debris out of your boots. $140; 1 lb. 6 oz.; m's S-XXL, w's XS-XL; mountainhardwear.com.
