Are You Getting Hot For Zipoff Hiking Pants?

Nov 6, 2007
When you are hiking you can encounter various weather conditions. But it can be difficult to carry a variety of clothing with you when you are hiking. Zipoff hiking pants are a great solution to this problem because they can be easily turned into shorts and visa versa.

What To Look For When Shopping For Zipoff Hiking Pants

A good pair of hiking pants should have enough spacious cargo pockets to hold your hiking gear. When looking for zipoff hiking pants, you want to find ones where the zippers are covered by flaps. This way the zips are invisible to the eye when you use them as pants and this will keep the zipper from touching your skin when you turn the hiking pants into shorts.

What Kind Of Material Should I Choose?

Nylon is preferable for hiking. Nylon cloth would help in providing extra comfort and also will stand up to different types of weather conditions such as
* rain
* Wind
* Snow
* The sun

It is important to choose an all around weather resistant material because it will make your hiking vacation a lot more enjoyable. You can laugh at your friends who have to bring tons of different clothes to make sure they are always comfortable. Nylon is especially nice in the cool early mornings and late in the evenings when the temperature drops again.

Zipoff Hiking Pants Should be Lightweight

Along with making sure that they are lightweight, hiking pants should also dry easily when wet. You should choose a pair of pants that are durable; the fabric must be strong as well as feel smooth and non-binding to your skin. Always make sure that the zippers work well.

When searching for hiking pants also try and find ones that have been treated with Teflon to make them water and stain resistant. Good hiking gear will also have a polyurethane coating to makes it more waterproof and resistant to wrinkling.

How Much Do Good Pants Cost?

Like anything else the cost of zipoff hiking pants can vary, but I have found that you can get a good pair for around eighty dollars. To get the most out of your hard earned money, however, you need to follow the above guidelines when you are shopping for the pants. This way you can ensure that you will be comfortable and what you buy will be durable.

Whatever hiking pants you do decide to buy, just make sure they zip off. There is no sense buying ordinary pants when you can get pants that can be converted into shorts when needed.
