Arc'teryx makes some of the lightest trail pants around. Able to handle wet conditions or fast sweat-inducing hikes, its Rampart models weigh under 10 ounces and use a quick-drying, stretchy nylon-blend fabric. There are seven pockets in all, including two hand pockets with highly breathable mesh linings and two cargo pockets with drain holes for when the weather really turns ugly.
