Consider these feature-rich trekkers the 4×4 off-roaders of hiking pants: built for scrappy missions that would destroy your lighter britches. Credit the 65/35 poly/cotton fabric, which is reinforced with interwoven ripstop threads and infused with water-resistant wax (treat every three washes). The wax finish repelled a light rainstorm and the pants were unscathed after a week of hiking along Canada’s Icefields Parkway. You’d think wax and ripstop would make these pants stiff, but four-way stretch panels on the rear prevented our tester from feeling like he was wearing chainmail. “I high-stepped through boulderfields on days in the low 70s and the 10.5-inch outer thigh vents provided a welcome cross-breeze,” he says. $150; 1 lb.; men’s 29-48W, 32L; women’s 2-18; fjallraven.com
