From thru-hiking and active adventures to relaxing around camp, get camping pants for comfort

Whatever your camping plans, invest in the best camping clothing for performance, comfort, lightweight packs, and in-camp convenience. Our top choice of camping pants are convertible trousers – giving you the option of shorts or three-quarter trousers in a single garment. Technical fabrics are also quick to dry and offer built-in insect defence and sun protection – the perfect match for outdoor and camping adventures. In this story, find out what features to look for in the best camping pants and shop our top recommendations.

What To Wear Camping: Advice on Camping Pants

At The Safari Store, we live the philosophy that what you wear gives you enhanced enjoyment of your outdoor and camping experiences. We have carefully designed, developed, tested, and refined our clothing range to ensure they meet our standards of comfort and performance. Our founder is a living test subject – spending six months of the year camping in Africa. As a result, our camping pants advice is a result of a dedication to camping life – and the desire to share our recommendations with likeminded outdoorsmen and women.

What to Look for When Shopping for The Best Camping Pants

The Long List of Benefits of Technical Fabrics: Technical fabrics have revolutionised how we do the outdoors - and they are so effective that it's easy to take the advantages for granted. Our BUGTech™ anti-insect fabric has been extensively expedition and independently tested to offer insect defence, sun protection, moisture wicking, and anti-microbial properties. It is also feather light, which is perfect for time on the trail.

Camping Pants That Are Lightweight, Quick Drying, and Packable: Packing light is the key to preparing for a camping trip. By packing lightweight camping trousers that convert into shorts and three-quarters, you get ultimate flexibility - with space to spare. Our BUGTech™ fabric is also quick drying, so you can wash and wear with ease as the days go by.

Designed for Comfort: From freedom of mobility to round-camp comfort, the best camping pants tick all the boxes for all your planned activities. All the trousers available from The Safari Store are comfort-focused in design - from our convertible BUGTech™ trousers for men, women, and children, to our men's Savute Cargo Trousers and Shorts and women's Serengeti Joggers and shorts.

The Best Camping Pants: Extra Tips for Campers

Cover Up: Dressing for changing conditions means you are adaptable throughout the day. Again, this is why convertible trousers are such a great choice for camping and the outdoors. Covering up not only protects you from the elements (both the cold and sunburn); it also provides insect protection.

Diversify Your Wardrobe: Mix and match your camping pants selection with options. We always go camping with convertibles, joggers or cargoes, and shorts. For women, a pair of skorts are also incredibly practical.
