Nylon is an excellent quick-drying fabric to consider for your next pair of outdoor pants or shorts. In addition, nylon blocks wind and is comfortable against the skin. If you will be in warm or moderate weather conditions, nylon pants are a lightweight option that can provide the protection that you need. In winter, put some thermals underneath and you're all set. There are also nylon pants available that are designed to convert into shorts - ideal for travellers as they reduce the number of items you need to carry.
Soft shell pants are an excellent option for hiking in cold conditions. They are comfortable to wear, wind and water resistant, and have a varying amount of insulation depending on the grade of softshell fabric. The warmer the pant the heavier it is.
In almost all outdoor conditions, you can expect that you will be exposed to the UV rays of the sun. As a result, you should make sure that your pants also protect against sun exposure. Pants that are designed to protect you from the sun are typically made from woven or knitted fabrics in order to limit the amount of UV light that can pass through the fabric. As a result, sun protection pants can also help you to stay cooler in warm weather. Polyester and nylon are great options for outdoor pants to reduce sunlight exposure.
For rock-climbing, you want pants that are tough, and allow for good movement. This is usually achieved through the use of cotton-canvas fabric with a hint of elastane. Cotton pants are fine for climbing in fine weather, but if the conditions are colder, you may consider a synthetic softshell pant which will block the wind and dry quickly.
