Packing light is easy with these convertible pants in BUGTech™ fabric. Full-length lightweight trousers, capris, or a pair of outdoor & safari shorts, get three outdoor garments in one (29” and 32” leg options).

There is a margin of clever packing required for many outdoor adventures and on safaris. This is primarily because of the luggage restrictions on small charter transfers. These women’s convertible trousers offer an easy solution – with a range of features for convenience, comfort, and protection as you travel. Made for the outdoors & safari, you will wear these trousers over and over again on all outdoor adventures.

In our latest BUGTech™ fabric, these trousers offer invaluable insect defence, moisture wicking, and laboratory-tested UPF50+ sun protection. All this can be enjoyed in feather-light micro-ripstop fabric, which is cool and has an unparalleled soft hand feel for comfort. They also have an anti-microbial finish, quick-dry fabric features, and releases wrinkles fast for travel ease.

Three garments in one, these full-length trousers can be rolled and secured with internal tabs to be worn as a pair of stylish capris. They also zip off at the knee to easily become a pair of anti-insect outdoor & safari shorts as the day heats up or to suit your preference according to the day’s activities.

Modelled on the classic cargo trouser design, these outdoor & safari pants have four functional pockets – two hand pockets and two zipped cargo pockets. The cargo pockets also have handy pull tabs so you can access your belongings as quickly as possible. They also have two decorative slit back pockets to enhance the styling of these trousers and shorts.

With an elasticated waist and drawstring, the fit is all about comfort whether on walks and active safaris or seated on planes or game-viewers. They also have a button and fly for styling and fit, as well as belt loops.

BUGTech™: it's in the fabric of who we are
Anti-insect clothing very rarely offers effective wicking properties, with the fabric trapping heat and sacrificing comfort for insect defence. This was one of the key issues we sought to avoid in developing our BUGTech™ range. We wanted our clients to enjoy the same features and comfort level they had come to expect from our MaraTech™ range with the added advantage of insect defence for their safaris, adventure travels, and outdoor experiences.

• As a result, BUGTech™ has been tested, refined, and re-tested in the outdoors & on safari, but also in some rather extreme conditions on expedition around Africa. We are happy to report that the wicking properties of our fabric is unhindered by the anti-insect treatment.
• Apart from our in-house tests, we wanted to offer our clients the added assurance of independent tests. In tests conducted by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), BUGTech™ fabric was proven to offer defence against most biting insects. We are unaware of any other manufacturer willing to publish their results.
• The active ingredient in our BUGTech™ fabric is permethrin which is used at the ultra low dosage of 500ppm. Permethrin is a man-made version of a natural insect repellent found in certain Chrysanthemum plants. BUGTech™ utilises a proprietary permethrin formula to provide effective, odourless insect defence.
• BUGTech™ is effective against most biting insects.

If you have any questions regarding BUGTech™ and the development of the fabric, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Product note:
• Please note that the BUGTech+™ water repellent leg sections (sold separately on our site) are not compatible with these trousers.

The measurements shown above are garment measurements so should be compared to another garment rather than your body measurements. Take a similar item that you own that fits comfortably to do the comparison. Please follow our guide below and scroll back up this page to place your order for this item.

Three easy steps to ordering the right size:

You will need the following items:
• Measuring tape
• A flat surface (such as a table or counter)
• A notepad and pen
• An item of clothing from your wardrobe that fits comfortably and is a similar style to the one you wish to purchase

How to measure chest/bust/arm/back

Referring to the images above, place your garment on a flat surface and record the following measurements:
A. 1/2 Waist: Measure across the top of the waistband from corner to corner.
B. Front Rise: Measure from the top of the front waistband to the crotch seam;
C. Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg hem.

Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to those measurements. 1/2 Waist is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.

TIP: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording.
