I’m no stranger to travel clothes.
In fact, I base most purchase decisions on whether said shirt, sweater, pants, skirt, etc. will travel well.
Dry clean only: Not gonna happen.
Quick-dry, wrinkle-proof, lightweight: Now we’re talking.
When I went searching for a pair of travel pants for an adventure trip in Baja, I struck gold with ExOfficio’s Nio Amphi pant.
Check out the product details:
They had me at Repeloff and cinched the deal with drop-in cell pocket (So sue me, I travel with a BlackBerry). Better yet, after the morning chill burns off, and the heat of the day cranks up, I’m diggin’ the roll-up feature that turns pant to sylish capri with a simple button. No need for dorky zip-offs.
Shopper’s remorse? Not me. It’s day 13 in Baja and I’m in love.
Favorite feature: I have hips. Yes, curves. And those unisex adventure pants just don’t do it for me. But, these, hallelujah, have a hidden drawstring waist which means no more embarrassing gaps because I had to buy a size-up to fit.
Not-so-favorite feature: Hmmm. I’m thinking. Nope, nada. Not yet, anyway. We’re still in the honeymoon phase.
Bottom line: Won’t head off somewhere warm without em’.
