Summer demands versatility in clothing, and capri pants offer the best in functional design for active lifestyles. Sometimes called knee pants, capris are not just summer casual wear, they are ideal for yoga, rock climbing and athletic lifestyles.
Of course, we have capris designed with casual wear in mind. Capris are the best informal summer pant for women. Prana, Columbia and Patagonia make simple, cute capri pants suitable for informal functions and summer city living. Fabric blends like Prana's 55% linen, 42% cotton and 3% spandex provide easy care and daily wear functionality. Columbia makes several different casual capris featuring 100% cotton fabrics and others with synthetic blends for easy care. Matched with a respectable pair of comfortable sandals and a cute top, capris are your do-it-all summer pants.
Capris make excellent hiking wear, too. Patagonia capris come in several styles designed for active use featuring 4-way stretch fabrics and articulated knees for unrestricted movement when hiking or running. Several Patagonia models can even be recycled through their Common Threads Recycling Program.
It is hard to find a better pant for sport climbing than a capri designed with stretch fabrics for freedom of movement. The capri style offers more protection from abrasion and the elements than shorts do, yet light breathable fabrics keep you cool and moving on the rock without restrictions. Patagonia and Mountain Hardwear make men's capri length pants designed with rock climbing in mind. Men's and women's capris for climbing also feature harness-friendly waist bands and closures.
Athletic capris are also excellent travel clothing. Easy care blended fabrics look good day in and day out when you are travelling. They offer more coverage than shorts, which lends them a more formal look than basic shorts. Capris are great choice whether travelling in the Unites States and overseas.
Outfit yourself for summer fun with capri style pants from Prana, Patagonia, ALO and Mountain Hardwear.
