Mountain Hardwear knows the pains of wardrobe malfunctions over a multi-day hike. Its Portino pants have three independent closures on the waist, in case one breaks on the trail. Other backwoods-friendly details include a durable waterproof finish, an ultraviolet protection factor of 50, and a deep zipper on the hem to slide them on over boots. If it gets too hot, you can unzip the pants to make shorts with an 11-inch inseam.
