Patagonia Men's Quandary Pants El Cap Khaki. The only dilemma you'll face wearing these pants is the uncertainty of what you'll wear while you're washing them.That's right, you aren't going to want to take these pants off. They're ready to take on anywhere your waterlife or landlife (probably not a word, but you get the idea) leads you. Patagonia's multi-functional, multi-season, multi-featured, multi-pocketed Quandary Pants are made of strong yet lightweight, mostly recycled nylon and spandex so they're quick-drying and have plenty of "give" so they're oh so comfortable. (Speaking of give, these pants would make an exceptional gift for the outdoorsman in your life. Just saying.) They have a weather-resistant DWR (durable water repellent) finish to repel moisture and dry faster, plus they provide sun protection of 50+ UPF so you can stay on the water or on your hike all day without that burning sensation.The Quandary Pants are designed to be best for lean-to-medium builds with their slim-straight fit that sits on the waist with a regular rise. They're not too loose, but not too tight in the seat and thighs. The curved waistband follows the natural contours of your hips for a personalized fit that stays put when you're on the move. They're cut straight from knee to ankle and you'll find the gusseted crotch and front and back knee articulation (jointed) allows for a full range of motion. (The last thing you want when you're climbing a tree to get away from a grizzly is for your pants to hold you back.)Extra comfort and utility details include front handwarmer pockets (the right with a coin pocket), two rear pockets, a right-thigh pocket with security zipper, wide reinforced belt loops and a zippered fly with a metal button closure. 4.2oz., 94% nylon (62% recycled)/6% spandex. Fabric is certified as bluesign approved. Imported.50+ UPFThe Quandary Pants feature a sun protection rating of 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor), which means only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays that fall on the surface will pass through and reach your skin. The sun protection is built-in so, unlike messy sunscreen, it won't wear off or need to be reapplied throughout the day.bluesign Approved Fabricbluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers and safe for the end
