About Women’s Hiking & Camping Bottoms

Whether you’re headed into a rainstorm, scrambling up a rock face or chilling at camp, Altitude Sports has everything leg-related and more to get you out there.

Shorts, Skirts, Pants, etc.

Hiking isn’t new and the innovations that come from this long standing activity are constantly evolving. Design and functionality have come a long way to ensure you get up to a good time in nature. And, today, nothing is off the table when it comes to choosing the right women’s hiking bottoms.
Cargo pants, zip off legs, hiking shorts, and even skorts are all reliable options for hiking and camping in the great outdoors. From the iconic Patagonia Baggies to leggings and times that call for Fjällräven’s technical trousers, our extensive collection... of women’s pants for hiking and camping has got your bottoms covered.

What To Wear With Altitude Sports

Stretchy fabric, zippered pockets, durable water repellent, and classic zip offs are just a few of the great characteristics of today's hiking and camping bottoms for pro and casual hikers alike.
Softshell pants are perfect for transitioning throughout the day––consider a relaxed fit to pull over your shorts when warm weather turns into cold weather hiking; bottoms with a gusseted crotch improve mobility while out climbing on a multi-pitch ascent; an elastic waist is easy to pull on and off but a zippered crotch with belt loops is a good choice if you want options.
Summer hiking calls for proper layering. Stylish bermuda shorts by Mountain Hardwear with good pockets or a durable pair of rain pants you can easily roll up, are great options for a comfortable hike. Cool nights can be paired with hike tights or warm base layers.
You can’t go wrong with most hiking pants or bottoms but choosing the right pair will greatly improve your next outdoor adventure. Thrive outside with the best women’s hiking pants, shorts, and everything else at Altitude Sports.

A Hem And a Haw

We curate the best women’s hiking pants on the market but not all shapes, sizes, and colours fit everybody. If those convertible hiking pants don’t have that zippered thigh pocket you’re looking for or you want the Saturday Trail Pant in city grey instead of india ink, no worries, we thought of everything.
We offer a 30-day return policy and shipping is free for purchases over $74 across Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions

What pants do women wear for hiking?

The pants women wear for hiking are usually durable, lightweight, and sometimes weatherproof. Consider the type of hiking you’ll be getting up to.
Are you scrambling up a rockface? Opt for tough, abrasion resistant pants. Windy or cold conditions? Choose wind resistant or waterproof pants. Long day in the sun? Get a pair of lightweight hiking pants with an spf rating like the Ferrosi Pants or pick up a pair of shorts if you want to get your tan on.
You might also want to consider skirts or dresses––yes, that’s right. Thru hikers around the globe are bringing back these circular garments and for a pretty functional reason. Hiking with nothing but underwear between your legs allows for better mobility, airflow, and simply looks awesome.

What is special about hiking pants?

Hiking pants typically weigh less than the average pants, dry quickly, and adapt well to the varying conditions you might be exposed to out on the trail. Everyday pants like jeans––and cotton in general––are not a good option. They’re heavy (more so when wet), hot, and are difficult to move in.

Can I wear hiking pants everyday?

Absolutely! You can wear hiking pants everyday. The better news is that outdoor companies are focusing more on the versatility of their pant designs so you can flawlessly get from the trail to a night out on the town. We recommend going with something like these Marmot pants or the classic women’s Notion Pants. Now, all you gotta do is choose a colour.
