“In general, the minute you tack the word “travel” onto almost any garment, it becomes more expensive and, well, uglier. While they’re still a little pricey, the P-cubed Adventure Traveler Pants by Clothing Arts don’t fit the baggy, saggy nylon pajamas stereotype; the cut, styling and feel are closer to a comfortable pair of khakis. The durable-yet-breathable material, which the makers call “Nature-Like Nylon,” feels like lightweight cotton. But that’s not the main selling point: They’re pickpocket proof, the company says. There are hidden mini pockets inside the front pockets, which not only zipper closed, but come with a buttoned flap to prevent the zipper from opening without a court order. The cargo pockets are not huge, in part because the back pockets expand to hold a guidebook or other bulky item. There’s a zippered pocket for the passport – that is inside another pocket that zippers and buttons.
