Multiday backpacking trips and ambitious day hikes take you into wild terrain. Stream crossings, bushwhacking, steep climbs, shot sun, the superlight Gamma Quick Dry Pant is made for this. TerraTex performance nylon balances wind resistance and air permeability, is durable, and has some stretch. And it dries really fast. The trim fit’s articulated patterning frees you to move, the adjustable waist belt rides comfortably under a pack, and five zippered pockets, including one at each thigh are accessible and secure.
