Adaptable and sensible. Lots of pockets and the ability to convert into shorts makes these pants useful on almost any adventure.

What We Liked

These pants quickly convert into shorts via a zipper at knee level, so you can uncover or cover your lower legs depending on how warm the weather is. Hand pockets, back pockets, and cargo pockets mean you can store a bunch of small items and keep them easily accessible. Plus, these pants offer UPF 50+ protection from the sun. Buy Now.

Most Stylish

Clothin Men's Elastic-Waist Drawstring Pants

Slim and trendy. A flattering cut and subtle color options make this pant fashion-forward.

What We Liked

While these pants are certainly functional, and wick sweat away while drying quickly, their best asset is their look. A tailored, straight-leg silhouette is right at home in the outdoors or at a social gathering, as are the color options. Two hand pockets and two back pockets are useful for carrying keys, wallet, and a phone. Buy Now.
