The Horizon Convertible Pants have been a favourite of travellers in the know for a while now, and with good reason.
The fabric is exceptionally light – so the trousers pack away to next-to-nothing – but thanks to the ripstop weave and water repellent finish, they stand up to the rigours of the trail. Zipped down into shorts, they allow you to enjoy the sun but, when you need to reattach the legs and cover up, they're rated at UPF 50.
The QuickDry finish helps you deal with the opposite extreme of tropical weather, as well as being very useful when you're living out of a backpack and need a rapid turnaround with your laundry!
