Yoga pants are great for yoga and jeans are great if you're hiking the mall, but when exploring the great outdoors, your pants should be made with durable, quick-drying fabrics that offer protection against the elements. Pants made specifically for hiking are the number one way to protect your legs from poison ivy, other allergenic plants, and freezing temps as you head up those mountain peaks. Brr!!! We can't all be Bear Grylls, but we sure can wear his pants. Seriously, you can buy Bear Grylls-brand survival trousers.

All of those well known outdoor clothing brands offer hiking pants that will keep you comfy on the trail. You don't even have to sacrifice style for efficiency! Brands like Athleta, Rab, and Title Nine offer pants in awesome colors and styles! So, seriously, you can just leave those jeans at home.
