Women's Walking Capris

Capris are perfect for walking in spring and fall. You don't need long pants, but it's not yet shorts weather. I recommend capris that are made of wicking fabric that dries quickly and keep you cooler. Capris come in three varieties: some have a bell opening below the knee, while others are more fitted below the knee and others are capris-length tights. It's a personal preference as to which is better. If you use arm motion, it is best to select capris without side pockets, so you won't catch your thumbs.

I knew higher-waisted styles would come back into fashion eventually. These capris have a wide waistband and higher waist. They have a looser fit for walking comfort and are great for travel. I love the two side zip pockets for small essentials - and you won't catch your thumbs on them if you use arm motion. The polyester/spandex fabric will wick away moisture.
