Vaude’s Farley Pants are 100 per cent polyamide, with UV protection and mosquito repellent (claiming to repel 95 per cent of mozzies even after 20 washes). They turn into 3/4 length trousers and you can cinch in the leg bottoms. An extra zipped pocket on the right thigh is ideal for passports/documents, feels soft to the skin, is light, comfortable and great for travelling and walking.
The best 3/4 length convertible trousers we looked at.
