If you want a convertible option that allows you to take shorts and trousers in one then Lowe Alpine Atacama Zip-off Pants are a great option. Exceptionally comfortable with an articulated knee for freedom of movement, an ultra-violet protection factor of UPF50 and a zip at the bottom of the leg to get them on and off over boots. Three zipped pockets for security and a quick-drying fabric make them an excellent choice.
