It's one thing to hike on wide, gravel-covered paths in your local nature preserve, but for the nitty-gritty, rock-scrambling, bushwacking backpacking adventures, you need Norrona's Svalbard Heavy Duty Pants. Their durable nylon construction defends against mother nature's rough side, including a reinforced seat and reinforced knees that are ready for those steep ascents that sometimes require travel on all-fours. The fabric is treated with a durable water-repellent in case you encounter wet brush or light rain, but also comes with mesh-lined vents at the thighs for cooling off when the sun comes out just as you're picking up the pace. Norrona even threw in gaiter hooks, so you can comfortably wear the Svalbard Pants with a pair of gaiters when you're planning on spending most of your time well away from any trail or "designated route".
