Best Women's Hiking Pants: Prana
Full disclosure: I'm not much of a hiker.
I am, however, a huge Prana fan, so when I heard they had the Prana Halle Pant created specifically for active travel, I had a feeling it would be a great pair of women's travel pants.
But the reality exceeded my expectations.
Hiking in wet weather? The waterproof-coated fabric and relaxed fit drapes will keep you dry while giving you full range of motion.
Rock climbing? The patented Stretch Zion fabric can expand to comfortable fit a harness, and you can protect your leg cuffs by rolling and fastening them at the knee.
Regardless of your outdoor travel needs, these Prana pants will have you covered!
Best Pants for City Tours: Yummie
The best pants for travel continue with the absurd names, this time courtesy of the Yummie Shaping Legging.
These are nothing more than your typical pair of cute, capri-length cotton leggings, so I definitely wouldn't recommend bringing these along for any strenuous day trips or hikes.
However, they are perfect for city tours (think European or North American, with lots of starts and stops) as they are sleek, simple, and extremely lightweight!
Best for the Airplane: Arc'teryx
Surely you didn't think I would run through the best travel pants for women without hitting on the worst part of traveling, right?
Airports and planes suck no matter what, but I always try to strike the balance of comfortable airport clothing that doesn't make me look completely homeless.
Thankfully the Arc'teryx Pants fit this bill.
Chic enough to wear around town, the Arc'teryx pant also provides the exact functionality you need from an airport outfit.
Made with a comfortable cotton-blend stretch fabric, these travel pants are built to withstand even the worst flights thanks to its moisture-wicking, stain-repellent, and durable fabric!
Best Travel Pants for Wet Weather: The North Face
Go on enough vacations, especially to regions known for the outdoors, and eventually you will encounter heavy wind and rain.
Love it or hate it you're better off being prepared, and no women's travel pant will help more than the The North Face Aphrodite Pants.
These travel pants have all the features you would expect from an established outfitters' brand like The North Face!
For example, they're made from waterproof fabric, advanced moisture-wicking technology for breathability, and triple stitching for a durable, no-tear pant!
Best Travel Pants for Summer Trips: Volcom
For hot summer vacations where you still need some leg protection, check out the Volcom Travel Pants.
Overlooking the completely ridiculous name, these travel pants for women are made with comfort and jet-setting in mind.
The pull-on construction with an elastic waistband makes getting in and out of your various vacation outfits a breeze (see what I did there?).
Meanwhile the cotton-polyester blended fabric offers comfort and lightweight protection from the heat!
Best for the Beach: Royal Robbins
If you're like me, you always worry about getting too much sun – even on tropical beach getaway vacations.
Fortunately there's the Royal Robbins Pants, which is my favorite women's travel pant for the beach!
Made with a fabric that is both lightweight and wrinkle-resistant, this pant is perfect for packing and re-packing your suitcase throughout a vacation.
The real kicker here is that the entire Royal Robbins pant is lined with UPF 50 protection, so you can feel safe no matter how long you like your walks on the beach!
