Golite Yunnan Hiking Pant

These are very light, so better-suited to warmer weather and even travelling. The stretch fabric is incredibly easy to move in, and the fact that it’s so light only adds to this. But those that climb high might find them a little too flimsy for year-round walking. On the plus side, they dealt well with a bit of rain and dried quickly too. They have limited storage space, but the small zip-up security pocket is fine for keys and money, and a map or guidebook can be crammed into the leg cargo pocket.
