How to choose your hiking pants or shorts?

When planning a hike, whether for a day getaway or a multi-day adventure, your choice of pants or shorts is crucial. Here are elements to consider to make the right choice:

Material and comfort:

  • Opt for breathable and lightweight materials like nylon or polyester.
  • Choose quick-drying fabrics, especially if you venture into wet areas or cross streams.
  • Make sure the pants or shorts offer good freedom of movement, with pre-shaped knees or comfort gussets.

Protection from the elements:

  • For hikes in the mountains or in variable climates, choose pants with a waterproof and windproof membrane.
  • In summer or hot climates, shorts that offer UV protection can be a great choice.
  • Also consider protection against insects for hikes in the forest or in risky areas.


  • Pants that convert into shorts are very practical for adapting to temperature changes.
  • Check for zippered pockets to secure your personal belongings.
  • Some models have reinforcements in areas subject to wear, such as the bottom of the legs, for greater durability.

Fit and size:

  • The cut must be adapted to your body shape: neither too tight nor too loose.
  • Some models offer adjustable waists or integrated belts for greater comfort.
  • For women, specifically designed models with a tailored fit are available.
  • If you have any doubts, it may be helpful to consult a hiking professional or a specialist seller like Muule .

Finally, don't forget to take into account the type of hike planned and the weather conditions. For more information on choosing your hiking equipment and to discover our selection, visit our Muule website.
