Supple yet tough, these nylon pants can take a week of bushwhacking and still pass muster at a dress-code restaurant. And after a fall rim-to-river-to-rim hike, our Grand Canyon tester reported, “The fabric dries quickly and breathes well enough for warm-weather trekking.” A fleece-lined waistband is comfortable under a hipbelt, and a short inseam gusset enhances mobility (without adding excess techie stitching). A discreet zippered cargo pocket holds a passport. $65; S-XL; 11 oz. (M); Reader service #112
