Men’s AP Pant, by Mountain Hardwear
This lightweight pant boasts a fit that’s somewhere between slim and regular; snap closures at the ankle so you can roll ’em up neatly when desired; a 75 percent cotton, 23 percent nylon and 2 percent elastane construction for a very typical-pant-that-I-can-wear-to-town-or-the-BBQ look, but with plenty of stretch for activities from hiking, to biking, to climbing; mesh pockets that are ultra-smooth against your skin; zippered rear pockets so you won’t lose your wallet; and a reflective component on the ankle for increased visibility in low-light settings. It has quickly become one of my favorite pants to the point where I’m considering buying a few different colorways so that when my current pair completely wears out (at which point this pant will likely no longer be in production) I’ll still have the Men’s AP in my life. All told, it’s a fantastic summertime- and fall-centric option for the outdoors lover all at a very fair price, I might add.
