Howies Epic Weatherproof Trouser
Chinos are usually the worst thing to wear outdoors or for any vigorous activity. They’re ruggedly durable, but the problem comes when it rains: Traditional heavy cotton is like a face towel, growing heavier as it soaks up water. Wear a pair of twills made from Epic cotton, though, and you can weather almost any storm. Plus, Howies offers reasonably priced, slim-fit styles. The fibers are coated by a DWR, or Durable Water Repellent, solution that seals the cotton on the inside, making water bead up and roll off. It can’t cope with mountaineering or wading through rivers, but this T-fal–like coating will keep you surprisingly dry during a simple downpour.
