A European-inspired high-performance hiking staple with classic good looks and an arsenal of features to keep you cool, dry and comfortable during your most challenging trail excursions. The cut is kept close to the body for an active fit that the pants never become loose or sloppy. Quick-wicking stretch nylon keeps moisture off your body while UPF 50 sun protection shields you from harmful UV rays. The Back-Up waist is lower in the front but follows the contours of your body, rising slightly in the back to provide extra coverage and a snug, secure fit. Stretch panels enhance mobility and zip-closed security pockets store valuables. Use the boot lace hook to keep pants in place (and debris locked out) when a casual stroll turns into a bit of bushwhacking.
