The Mesa II Pants are lightweight, quick drying and extremely comfortable trekking trousers with UPF 50 for extra sun protection.
Mountain Hardwear says:
The Mesa seems like an old favorite from the moment you put it on. Lightweight and quick to dry, this durable hiking pant made from 100% nylon delivers. A full-length inseam gusset aids mobility and a soft, extra-wide tricot waistband keeps you comfortable while packing in. Unique compression pockets at rear hold your phone securely, while the low profile thigh pocket is especially handy on the trail. Mesh lined pockets for river crossings and spontaneous swims.
They're just as light as the previous version with a few tweaks here and there. There`s still a comfort waistband built in but not such a heavy weight this means that if you`re not carrying such a heavy pack you get the necessary comfort without the extra fabric - a good move for us lightweight jockeys.
