The BugsAway Ziwa Convertible Pant provides sun protection with a UPF 30+ rating, dries quickly, and has security zip cargo pockets to secure your things. Head up into the mountains for a quick dip in the river, and by the time you hit the trail again, the quick-drying Ziwa will feel right as rain.
The partial elastic waist moves with you when you’re most active. In a flash, the ExOfficio Men's Bugsaway Ziwa Convertible pants transform from a pair of lightweight hiking pants, to a pair of breezy 10" hiking shorts.
An Insect Shield fabric treatment fends off mosquitos, gnats, no-see-ums, and the like, so you can return home without looking like Mother Nature's pincushion. Permethrin, the active ingredient in Insect Shield, is invisible, odorless, and tightly bonded to the fabric fibers, and lasts the expected lifetime of the garment (70 washes). It repels mosquitoes (including those carrying West Nile virus and malaria), ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums). Insect Shield repellent lasts 70 washings.
Don't sweat the sun either, because the Ziwa sports Sun Guard fabric that provides some additional protection against harmful UV rays that would damage your skin.
Machine wash cold. No bleach or fabric softeners. Wash with like colors. Tumble dry low. Iron low setting. Do not dry clean.
