Patagonia Rock Craft Pants
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
An ascent of Jebel Misht in the Omani desert entails climbing razor-sharp limestone, sleeping on stacked ropes and a 25-kilometer hike back to the jeep - all in a long day's work for the Rock Craft Pants. The lightweight, stretchy nylon/spandex blend has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 40-UPF sun protection. These technical pants are gusseted and have articulated knees for mobility, feature a metal-snap closure, a zip fly and belt loops. They also roll up and secure with tabs and snaps at the knees for versatility in warm weather. Drop-in pockets on the front and back carry topos; the side cargo pocket zips and secures valuables. Inseam (size 8) is 32".
Escaping razor-sharp limestone claws or loping along a burbling mountain stream without stuffing your closet full of single-purpose pants means you need versatile and rugged britches that aren't too big. The Patagonia Women's Rock Craft Pants fit the bill, as well as your body. Stretchy nylon stands up to rude branches and hostile rocks without making it feel like your legs are buried in burlap. Drizzly rain won't put a damper on the day, nor will an excess of sun fry your evening plans. The fabric moves with you, and the gusseted crotch lets you take advantage of an already flexible situation.
