All about this product



When every gram counts. When every item has to fight for backpack space. You need The North Face Exploration Convertible Regular Tapered Trousers. Made from a stretchy but durable nylon-elastane mix, these trousers stand up to day-after-day of wear and the challenges of steep switchback trails and feature a tapered leg shape for a slim close to the body design. When it comes to the fit, they're relaxed through the thigh, tapering towards the ankle, with a regular front and back rise and a regular-fitting waist. But perhaps their best feature is their versatility.

Roll up the hem for mid-morning ventilation. By afternoon you'll be zipping them off mid-thigh. When evening comes, convert them into trousers again. And don't worry about losing the zipped off bits. There's a storage pouch for that. And finally, the water-repellent finish makes quick work of light showers. They feature two open hand pockets and two large zipped pockets on the thighs.
