Best pants for portaging?
The last few years I find myself in more and more terrain where I'm portaging in nasty conditions. Thorns. Large, loose rocks on steep terrain. Jungle. You name it.
If I'm in a drysuit I often have to get it patched afterwards. When I wear shorts my legs get bloody and shredded.
Anyone have a personal preference on pants to wear while portaging?
I'm thinking they should ideally not be too heavy, shouldn't stay wet forever (so no cotton), yet be somewhat thorn resistant. Any thoughts welcome.
