Im just starting to get into backpacking and outdoors etc. and I am considering buying the Chilli Lite's or Patagonia Stand-Up shorts. What would be best to buy for everyday use, and use on the trails?
Either of these pants would be just fine for general/light trail use. When you start talking about backpacking, you may want to look at a more technical fabric then cotton. Here is a link to our hiking and climbing shorts pages.
