INSIDER - The 7 best women's hiking pants, leggings, and shorts for day hikes and backpacking trips

Best plus-size pants: SuperFit Hero's Pocket Capris, $95 on Superfit Hero
Plus-size hikers are obsessed with SuperFit Hero's Pocket Capris for their stay-put fit specifically designed for bigger bodies, slight compression, and durability.

Pros: Specifically designed for plus-sized bodies, stays put with activity, slight compression

Size range: L-7X

When we asked a handful of plus-size outdoor adventurers and athletes what gear they couldn't live without, multiple ladies pointed to SuperFit Hero. Despite being an activewear company, its Pocket Capris are great for outdoor adventurers, in particular hiking, as they're high-waisted with a 20-inch inseam and stay put with movement, thanks in part to their gusseting for better mobility. They're made from soft, stretchy, and mildly-compressive fabric which is also sweat-wicking and quick-dry to keep you cool for long miles. 

Because the brand is more focused on activewear than technical-wear, the capris don't have any waterproofing, abrasion-resistance, or wind-resistance. But because SuperFit Hero's Pocket Capris are so comfortable and well-designed, and the vast majority of women of all sizes like to work up a sweat in leggings over pants, these still hold our top plus-size pick.
