Try flying without pants ... it’s liberating.

Don't know the model number but they have regular pockets, cargo pockets
with velcro closures, and hip pockets with zippers.* They also have zip
off legs to convert to shorts.* Very thin material and they dry quickly
when gotten wet.

I use an old version of these pants by Duluth trading co. I have 2 shorts version and 2 pants version. The ones I have wear great, are tough as nails, don't keep a stain, dry fast, but are not the lightest clothes. I attached links to the new version and if I was to buy one today, I'd try the convertible model. The thing I like it the the cargo pockets have a zipper down the front that provides access while sitting and works great in the glider. The older version also has a front zipped pocket that I use for my billfold and is very secure.

After searching for these, I decided to buy the convertible and a pair of shorts.

Costco used to sell a similar pant. Very light-weight, and not very warm. But lots of pockets, and legs that zip off to make shorts. A lot cheaper too.
