Default Flying pants

I've had a pair of the Duluth dry on the fly shorts for years, I'd recommend them. Multiple good sized pockets, comfortable, and the cargo pocket with side zippers are easy to access in flight.

What is wrong with a pair of shorts commando style and flip flops and a Tommy Bahama shirt. Bob


Dress to egress. If you have to step out of your glider over the mountains you will in short order wished you have given thought on how to dress.

Seriously? $100 for a pair of MC Hammer pocket pants?

Yeah but if you have flying pants you don't need a glider.

Cargo pants are like the Ray Ban case on the belt. Darn convenient but only used by “Mature” men.

I used to wear shorts until I started flying in the high teens...

I love the Sahara Roll-up pants from REI. They have zippered cargo pockets on both sides. I keep essentials in them that I would not want to not lose in a bail-out. They also have these neat waist cinches that make a belt unnecessary. When it's hot on the ground, I roll up the legs to below my knees, and I roll them down before takeoff.

I have some of the Colombia cargo pants that are similar, but inferior. Only one of the side pockets is zippered; the other has a tiny piece of velcro that would blow right open in a bail out. The lower legs unzip, but I find that much less convenient than rolling them up.

Roll-up is a good idea.* I was thinking that throwing all style (decorum) aside, pant legs that had a zipper running up the *front* of the legs would provide a lot of flexibility.

I've been wearing these for soaring and towing. Like ‘em. Not convertible. Mine have 10 pockets, including the three on each thigh. One keeps a cell phone perfectly. To keep bugs and stuff out at a field, use blousing bands, if you don't care about looking extra dorky.
