Quick-to-wick, quick-to dry, these are Patagonia's stretchiest bottoms for summer backpacking, trekking in temperate climates or laying down a set of 8s in fresh corn snow. The fabric is a blend of 5.1-oz 84% polyester and 16% spandex with Gladiodor® odor control for the garment and 50+ UPF sun protection. It rests lightly on the skin, allows a cooling airflow and wicks perspiration to keep you dry. A brushed elastic waistband provides next-to-skin comfort; offset seams feel smooth under the pressure of a loaded hip belt or harness.
Climbing, skiing, running: at some point you’re going to sweat, and at some point you’re going to stink. Gladiodor® Garment Odor Control reduces unwanted smells on the fabric of a garment so you and your partners can breathe a little easier. Gladiodor treatments are rigorously tested for functionality initially and after washing.
The UV protection offered by this garment is rated “excellent.” *
