Gear Guide 2012: Helly Hansen Odin Quick-Dry Pant

With custom sizing and smart features these quick-dry pants are a must-have.

[super-fit pants]

Seeing a lot of Helly in this issue? That’s because the Norwegians are killing it with smart features our testers love. These summerweight, stretch-nylon trousers feature a unique clasp that never comes unsnapped, perfectly placed pockets (including one on the thigh for maps), and (best of all) an innovative waistband that permits custom sizing. Built-in elastic belts slide forward and back from the hip, attaching securely via wide Velcro patches however snug you like. Bummer: no sizes for women. $100 (shorts are $85); 13.6 oz. (36); hellyhansen.com
