Continuing its tradition of blending style, protection and comfort, Huk introduces the NXTLVL (say it a few times) Cargo Pant, extending the 10.5-inch shorts into a full-length garment.

What sets it apart?

Designed for unhindered movement, these pants are made with a quick-drying, high-stretch fabric that includes UPF properties that eliminate the need for multiple sunscreen applications. With its cotton, polyester and spandex blend, the NXTLVL Cargo Pant keeps the mosquitoes and no-see-ums (sand gnats) out while allowing cooling breezes to flow through the fabric.

How do I use it?

Hydrophobic fibers move perspiration away from the skin to the pants’ exterior for evaporation, while an antimicrobial coating combats odor-causing microorganisms to help eliminate unpleasant smells. Other key features include an ever-adjustable waistband for optimal fit, gusseted crotch for freedom of movement and a durable, water-repellent finish to keep you dry. Color options: braid, fallen rock and iron.

How much?


David’s insight:

Whether it’s a warm morning in a backwater pond, an afternoon on the dock with kids or a casual stroll by the seashore, nothing dampens the mood like swatting and swiping at those persistent biting insects. Paired with one of Huk’s long-sleeve technical shirts, the NXTLVL Cargo Pant will keep the bugs at bay so you can focus on enjoying the great outdoors.
