The Arcteryx Women's Parapet Pant was made for vigorous activity. The lightweight nylon is a little stretchy and doesn't compromise movement. The articulated knees, crotch and seat make the Parapet Pant incredibly durable. They're quick drying and won't stick to skin even in the most humid and sweaty situations. The zippered cargo pocket is good to store important stuff, like old Pez dispensers or spare cookies.
DECENT FEATURES of the Arcteryx Women's Parapet Pant
"I liked the first pair so much I bought two more pair and am now looking at buying yet another color"
I wanted something to hike and geocache in besides my blue jeans. They get to hot. I am always leery of buying pants without trying them on. They fit perfectly. I love this material, they are light weight, wind resistant, snag resistant (tried that out with the bicycle chain). I have hiked in them and biked in them. They are so comfortable. I love the zippered pocket on the leg. They fit perfect and you can go from hiking to town and they have a dress up look. I don't own slacks or dress clothes so now have pants for work related classes with a dress code. My only complaint is the material is so soft that on my leather seat in my car my butt doesn't have any traction to stay put when I am driving.
