Yeah, that's purple baby! Not to worry, Outdoor Research's Ferrosi women's capris – also available in a man-pri, a.k.a. "3/4 pant" - comes in very attractive and more subdued brown mushroom (much more of a handsome brown than the online pictures show) and gray pewter as well as the bright berry color. But hey, go big or go home, right?
The Ferrosi collection is targeted at climbers, but it will work and work well for literally anything. The SheFlogger is proof of this as she has been living in her pair for the past month. No, we're not kidding, morning, noon and night, she loves them that much. The reasons are obvious: the Ferrosi capris look good and wear effortlessly. The 86% ripstop nylon is woven with 14% spandex for the perfect blend of performance and comfort. Breathability and wind resistance are excellent. The SheFlogger was even clumsy gracious enough to spill her favorite beverage on it, and it wiped clean in one swipe.
The material is tough, so scrape away in your favorite off-width. It stays neat, so head into town on your cruiser. The waist has a soft tricot lining, and is secured by a drawcord with tapered loops for a belt if that's what floats your boat. The fly has both zipper and double snaps. The hand pockets are open and shallow, and there are two zipped butt pockets and a zipped left thigh pocket, which is the one you'll end up using to stash small flat items. OR obviously went the extra distance in designing and testing the Ferrosi pieces for both men and women, and now you get to reap the benefits.
