Light and airy with just a hint of stretch to the material make Merrell’s Meridian trousers a great option for walkers heading abroad. They feel pretty good on, but I found them slightly too light and baggy to be entirely comfortable: ideal for hot weather but a bit too loose for my tastes. With an excellent ultra-violet protection factor (UPF) of 50 these are made for hot weather, and they are quick-drying and feature one zip-secured pocket.
