Why We Like It

The last time you may have considered owning convertible pants– if ever– was probably in middle school (or your parents bought them for you because they're "practical"). Well your parents may have been right – for once. Here's three reasons why: for the price, you cant beat the 2-for-1 pants/shorts combo for maximizing pack space, these convertible pants are some of the quickest drying and lightweight options out there, and they look more-or-less like normal pants (especially in darker colors). Unless you really need to look sharp while traveling, practicality prevails in this case.
