Sonora Pant Review

Kryptek's lightweight Sonora Pant offers heavyweight performance.

The problem with most outdoor pant options on the market is they force you to choose between performance and fabric density. Kryptek's Sonora Pant is the perfect marriage between the two.

For starters, the Sonora Pant is made with mesh so thin and lightweight that when wearing them, you might feel as though you’re going pants-less (which can be exhilarating or concerning, depending on how you feel about such things). The mesh provides outstanding airflow and breathability, making the Sonora a perfect choice for your hottest summer adventures. Day hiking the East Potrillo Mountains of New Mexico? Bring it on. Birdwatching in Costa Rica's Corcovado National Park? You'll be in great shape. Fossil dig in the Eastern Cape? No sweat.

Because the Sonora is made by Kryptek, you can trust that it’ll be more than just something breezy to wear in August. This pant features mechanical stretch fabric and articulated knees, giving you full range of motion for hiking, scrambling, or whatever else you might want to do. Add in the UPF sun protection, Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment, and antimicrobial properties, and you’ve got yourself a garment that's as hard-working as it is comfy.
