Like their name implies, Patagonia’s Houdini Pants are ready to disappear at a moment's notice. Slip them on over shorts, then once you break a good sweat you can pull 'em right off over your sneakers thanks to easy on, easy off snaps on the lower cuffs. Made from ripstop nylon with a water repellent finish these tough as nails pants are built to withstand winds, light rains, and muddy-trail abuse. Plus if you're a night runner, reflective logos above the left knee and rear pocket warn traffic where you are. ($79; patagonia.com)
