Could the Nomad get any better? Here's proof. We added cooling technology to make your favorite pants even handier when the weather gets blazing. Chafe-free waistband means biking, hiking, or touring stay comfortable. Functional UPF 30 fabric dries quickly and wicks moisture. Cool and fresh: Sol Cool™ Jade fabrics are cool to the touch, and SILVADUR™ activates silver ions in the presence of undesirable bacteria, helping eliminate odor.
