Yes, it is possible to spend time in the sun without getting fried. Meet the Columbia Royce Peak Pants. The Omni Shade UPF 50 sun rating protects you against harmful UV rays, while the Omni Shield technology dries faster than conventional fabric, keeping you drier longer. The durable nylon blend fabric and gusset detail won't shy away from hikes that require a little bushwhacking. The articulated knees, straight leg fit, and two way stretch give you comfortable freedom of movement when the elevation starts to climb, and the pockets with hook and loop closure make it so your belongings won't get lost along the way.
