$45, 9 oz. (boys medium)
Sizes: boys and girls XXS (4-5) to XL (18)

We parents face a conundrum regarding kids’ gear and outdoor clothing: We want our kids to have the same high-quality stuff we have—it’s worth it to help them enjoy the experience—but, well, they do outgrow it fast. These zip-off hiking pants soften the financial pain of outfitting your children without sacrificing quality. Moderately priced, they are made with the same fabric and features (six pockets!) as the adult version, with the added value of an adjustable waistband to help keep your son or daughter from busting out of them sooner than you’re ready to lay down plastic for another pair.

    We love these pants also. The zip off section had side zippers so my son is not hopping around on one foot trying to get the detachable section over his boot. They also are good color match for a Boy Scout uniform.
