These capris have a fit that is superb, with a slightly low-rise waist that gives them a fashion-forward style and an integrated belt that eliminates gaps. A brushed polyester lining prevents chafing beneath a pack. Articulated knees* and gusseted crotch allow for full freedom of movement, and two zippered cargo pockets are big (they secure a map or GPS) but low profile, thanks to pleats that keep fabric from ballooning. Two open hip pockets and minimal seaming throughout give the pants an appealingly casual look. The three-season softshell fabric (94 percent nylon, six percent spandex) beads up light drizzle, resists abrasion, and features four-way stretch that facilitates high-stepping and helps the pants maintain their shape after days of wear.
