Wet pants? Ain’t nobody got time for that. When you’ve been trudging along in the rain all day and finally find shelter, the last thing you want to do is sit around in your own dampness. It’s uncomfortable, can lead to a slew of nasty bacterial infections, might cause chafing and your pants can start to smell like mildew. So here are a number of quick-dry pants to consider when the weather isn’t considering you.
Performance Chinos (L.L.Bean, $59): These standard fit chinos offer a streamlined fit and stretch for whatever the rainy day throws your way.
Clothing Arts (Business Travel Pants, $100): These patent-pending chinos will not only offer you a wrinkle-, stain- and water-resistant pants option, but also their extra secure pockets will fend off pickpockets, too.
Slacker Pant (The North Face, $46): Maybe you’re kicking it inside on a rainy day, but you had to run out to pick up some beers first. These sweatpants will dry off quick when you get back to your couch.
Quandary Pants (Patagonia, $63): Made from stretch-woven nylon and spandex, these will keep you comfortable and dry even when the weather takes an unsavory turn.
Golden Age Joggers (Under Armour, $70): UA’s Moisture Transport System wicks sweat and dries fast so you can take these elastic waistband, tapered pants for a run in any weather conditions.
On-the-Go Slim Fit Jeans (Dockers, $22): These wrinkle-resistant, moisture-wicking jeans have five protective pockets to keep your valuables dry on your daily commute.
Screeline Pants (REI, $80): The weather isn’t always so reliable when you’re on the trails. Pack yourself a pair of these quick-drying, water-resistant hiking pants that won’t take up too much space in your bag.
W Packable Pant (Helly Hansen, $85): Featuring Helly Tech weather protection, these fully seam-sealed pants pack neatly into their own pockets so they’ll keep you dry—and keep your other stuff dry when you toss them in your backpack.
