Not all pants are created equal. Our era is one of jeans engineered to climb in, designer sweats and ultralight hiking pants. This is a good thing. Lucky you, we've worn them all, and more. Our all-star team of testers has taken the road less traveled when it comes to rain pants, hiking pants (men and women), yoga pants, and the best pants for skiing. We buy everything from the stores, just like you do, then test them over months. Our reviews are 100% unbiased. That's our guarantee.
