Tough and technical, these movement-oriented pants offer comfort and performance for exploring the wildest places. Made of a strong, lightweight and quick-drying 96% stretch-woven nylon/4% spandex fabric, they give you plenty of flex for a week on the trail and have a weather-resistant DWR (durable water repellent) finish to resist mist and drizzle. The curved waistband follows your hip’s contours for a personalized fit; a gusseted crotch and knee articulation allow a full range of motion. With two front handwarmer pockets (right has a coin pocket), two rear pockets and a side leg pocket with security zipper, you’ll stay organized and know exactly where you put your keys (yeah, right). Details: reinforced wide belt loops, zip fly with metal web-button closure and 40-UPF sun protection. Inseam is 30".

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Men's Quandary Pants - Short is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for just about anything I use these pants mostly for running and hiking. I have worn them comfortably in temperatures ranging from 35° to 85°. They are just the right weight and they look great. A couple of days ago I was wearing these pants when I slipped and scraped my knee on the way down from Mt Chocorua, but the pants didn't have a mark on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants I wear these for almost everything. My go to for traveling, Guiding (under waders) and hiking. I recently returned from a week hiking and canyoning in the Azores, Portugal. These pants performed perfectly. Slim fitting but the stretch makes them move with you while not restricting your range of motion. DWR finish is nice too as the weather changed by the minute there and being able to ward of some light precipitation was well appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants Pluses: stretchable relatively thin fabric that provides a decent wind barrier nonetheless, packs down to nothing in a bag, and easy to dry out after getting wet. All around useful for activities like traveling or hiking. The back pockets are set low - too low for me to feel comfortable keeping a wallet back there, for example, but that wasn't a deal breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pants I wear these pants whenever I can. They're great for hiking, travel, and casual wear. The fabric is slightly stretchy so moving around in them is very comfortable since no movement is restricted. The pants also don't seem to wrinkle, which is nice. Only complaint is that the rear pockets are a bit deep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Great panta Bought them last minute at the resort before hiking Machu Pichu Montaña last weekend and pretty much kept them on for the rest of the trip. Put then on one last time after boarding the plane ofln the return flight back to LA and they are great for sleeping. I'm buying a pair in every color! Warm enough for a 430AM train ride from Ollaytantambo-Aguas Calientes and cool enough as not to be bothersome during the midday descend from MP Montaña.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for traveling Very comfortable and lightweight. Perfect for traveling. Fairly water resistant. Note, the front pockets are somewhat shallow.
