Mountain Hardwear Dynama Pant

The Mountain Hardwear Dynama Pant is comfier than pajamas yet still worthy on the trail.

Brand: Mountain Hardwear

Model: Dynama Pant

Fabric The knit poly waistband dried quickly after sweaty slogs in 80°F temps in Death Valley National Park, while the supple, stretch-woven nylon body fabric helped cut light wind over a baselayer at 10,000 feet in Colorado’s James Peak Wilderness.

Versatility On a road trip around Southern California, we wore these pants for four days straight of hard hiking with a loaded pack. Then we changed into some other, cleaner hiking pants. Then we changed back into the dirty ones for an overnight. Only two things keep them short of perfect: We wished for more, deeper pockets than the jeans-style ones at the front and back (though that might decrease the comfort factor), and after about 50 days of hard use, we’ve noticed some moderate pilling on the thighs.
