The Silver Ridge Convertible Pants by Columbia are a great, hard wearing pant for a range of activities. The Omni-Shade technology means they give you great protection when out in the sun, while the Omni-Wick technology pulls moisture away from the skin and allows it to evaporate quickly to reduce drying time.
They are a women's specific fit with a regular rise and straight leg. There is a small zip to extend the ankle opening which enables you to take the legs off without having to take your boots off. The mesh pocket bags help to reduce the weight but also aid in ventilation.
