Rain or shine, the Outdoor Research Equinox Pants are at the ready.
Whether you're on the trail in the blazing sun or light rain, the Outdoor Research Equinox Men's Pants keep you protected and moving freely. Lightweight, quick-drying Supplex nylon and a gusseted crotch give these pants a smooth feel, incredible comfort, and excellent freedom of movement. These Outdoor Research pants have a DWR coating to protect you from afternoon rainstorms and a UPF 30+ rating to assure you don't get toasted when the sun is shining. The Equinox Pants are ready for just about any outdoor pursuit, from rock climbing, to day hiking, to multi-day backpacking.
Used these pants on 1-2 day hiking trips. They feel quite light and have a good fit. No stretch, but that's ok by me. In hot weather they help protect from the sun and don't get very hot (I have the charcoal color). Would definitely recommend as a lightweight hiking pant.
