The Best Pants To Travel In That Aren’t Leggings

At Refinery29 Australia, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team, but we may earn commission or other compensation from the links on this page.
Whether you’re travelling by plane, train, or automobile, comfort is key. And while we love our trusty leggings and sweats, some folks prefer looking a little more pulled together with stylish bottoms during their trips.
When it came to curating our list of best travel pants, we put in place a set of criteria to meet: look versatile enough to wear straight off the plane and into a business lunch, be comfortable enough to withstand whatever weird contortions we end up in when trying to catch sleep on a long-haul flight, and match the rest of our wardrobe enough to be worn multiple days throughout our trip. Along with those requirements were a handful of secondary concerns like wrinkle resistance, technical fabric, and of course — pockets.
Say hello to our 12 top travel pant picks below. Once you learn the beauty of sweat-wicking and stretchy trousers, we promise you'll never go back.
