    I am not wanting to wear shorts because its not as hot here anymore. I would like to wear pants, of some kind, but have no idea what kind. The options would be jeans, leggings, yoga pants or joggers.. If you had to pick from those, what would you pick and why? I dont want to choose joggers or yoga pants like I am wanting, then regret it later!

    Not jeans lol. I wear calf boots, Merrells. Sorry I only own one pair of (purposely) torn jeans and I hate them in general lol. I can never find ones that fit right and allow enough freedom of movement for chasing toddlers and whatever hiking or activities. The yoga pants with flares I leave at home unless I'm out of other options because those tend to drag and snag... carry dirt into the tent... Also straight leg tucks into the boots better/more comfortably.

    I often see men and women wearing sweatpants in the mornings and evenings, during the day usually people are wearing shorts.

    I personally would choose to wear jeans, especially if your actually going camping in the woods rather a backyard fun family event. Jeans will help to prevent you from getting to cold while also preventing bites from ticks, mosquito's. etc,.

    you can laugh at me if ya like but I always wear pantyhose around the woods.
    there now made for men. some have a male pouch some a fly others with a choice of a open or closed sleave on them.
    there very comfortable and warm and keeps the insects off of you.

    I work with someone who claims that it keeps deer ticks from climbing up his legs when he hunts up north.

    Welcome Tim31556.

    Also my wife tells me that I need to wear panty hose because standing at my job is contributing to vericouse veins.

    When we go on a family camping, the women always wear thick pants. Denims is the best but those who are uncomfortable with denims can wear loose slacks. The woods is rife with enemies of the skin like insects, plants that can cause skin rashes and some small animals like snake. It is good to be wearing something that will shield your lower limbs from possible dangers. For those who love fashion, I'm sorry but fashion is not needed in camping places because the rugged you are, the better.

    Went we went camping back when I was in secondary school, I usually wear shorts or leggings as I find them both comfortable. Depending on the activity that we will be doing. I don't feel wearing jeans during camping because I don't feel comfortable wearing one. Not unless we're about to go home :) I also like wearing pajamas or loose leggings because it's very light and I feel easy :)

    mens scrubs pants are thicker than pjs for cooler weather or rougher camping.

    I like to wear a pair of sweat or track pants in the evenings or if I'm going on a hike in a buggy area but the rest of the time I'm in shorts!
