    Dappered Hiking Men out there- clothing recs

    Any Dappered hiking enthusiasts out there? I'm looking for pants recommendations that would look good but will still be functional and breathable. I'm trying to move away from my usual Nike Soccer performance attire with sweatpants and graphic moisture wicking shirts into a more outdoors man vibe/look rather than a high school athlete. Any suggestions on good looking pants out there?

    I am actually hunting pants right now too. For backpacking overnights or hiking only, I have some rei convertible pants that I really like. They are aging and need replacement though. They arent he warmest but I do a wicking base layer under them in the cold. Camped and hiked in the 20's with just those and the base and was fine. When you are trying to watch your weight int he pack, its nice to have one pair that functions as pants and shorts.

    For the weekend short hikes I am looking at tech pants. This year seems to be the year of tech materials. I see them EVERYWHERE now. Even walmart. Costco had some eddie bower pants that I wanted to pick up but Costco never carries my size in store and I just never seem to want to order them online for some weird reason. I am very hesitant with tech pants in general because some just look like track suits in cargo pant form.

    Being that I live in Portland and have access to the Columbia employee store, I picked up 2 pairs of these for something like half price a few years ago:

    They're slim without being skinny, have some give, and they're tough as hell - I've hiked through all sorts of brush in these with nary a scratch. At $90, they may be a bit rich but I'm sure they can be had for something less than that with a bit of searching.

    the EB pant from costco is the most affordable one @ $20 and you get costco return policy as well.

    I really like the Prana Brian pants. They are available at REI, but Amazon carries odd waist sizes, too.

    I also love the prana brion. I also have mountain Hardwear Castil.

    Bought them specifically because they looked the most like regular pants and have a slim leg opening (bottom hem around 7-7.5" flat, somewhere around there). Most other hiking pants you have a big billowing opening to accommodate putting on with shoes on or to go over giant boots.

    Bunch of good options here, I knew my dappered guys would have this covered. I've heard nothing but good things about the prana pants (Zion and Brion), will definitely pick one of these up.
    Those Outlier pants look really good as well, nice mix of urban/technical look, any experience in hiking in those?

    Thanks for the recommendation of the Prada Brion pants. I was following this thread because I was in the market for some hiking pants as well.

    I bought a pair in the cargo green that I found on Amazon for under $40 a pair.

    I was very happy with the fit on these. They fit me better then most of my other chinos and jeans. I may have to pick up another couple pairs in different colors.

    I haven't worn them out yet but my initial impression is a great fitting, good looking option.

    to all of you that have the Prada Brion, how do you find the fit? Amazon's color choice in my preferred size is slim and on the top end of the price scale.
