For me, the ultimate travel pants for international flights should feel like pajamas. I also love wearing maxi dresses for travel that takes over 10 hours.  However, sometimes as a travel writer, you have to go straight from your flight onto an active tour. For that reason I've added pants that are comfortable for long flights but also work great for hiking and active travel and pair great with a travel vest.  In addition I've included pants that are just super comfy and durable. Check out my list below for the my top 10 favorite travel pants for long flights!

These pants are super durable and water-resistant and roll up at the leg to turn into capri pants if you get hot during your flight. There is a hidden pocket in the right leg perfect for hiding any valuables during your travels. These are mid rise pants with a relaxed fit. I love that they are offered in three different inseam options: short, regular and tall. These pants are perfect if you want to jump right into active travels when you get off the airplane. 

White Sierra - Convertible Pant

White Sierra's Convertible Pant comes in 5 basic colors and is made of 100% Nylon. They come with UPF protection and are finished with waterproofing materials. The pants are totally convertible, you can zip off the legs and turn them into shorts if you get hot during your flight. 

These pants are designed with comfort fit in mind, featuring elastic in the sides. These pants are similar to the prAna travel pants but offer even more of a loose fit. When selecting your sizes, I recommend choosing a larger size if you are unsure and have more of a womanly, pear shape. These pants are more similar to men's pants, so if you are slim and straight up and down, the pants should be true to size.

These pants are comfortable, lightweight and are made of a soft, high quality material. The lower part of the pants zips off easily and is also pretty effortless to reassemble. The pockets are super roomy and you can store lots of stuff in there, including wallets, passports and more.

I personally love high waisted pants because they always hide my tummy if I've eaten more than usual, which is usually the case when I am traveling! The pants are available in 3 basic colors and a large plethora selection of sizes so it should accommodate almost any body type.

These everyday pants can be used for your workout, hiking, regular wear and of course for long flights. I like that the pants are form fitting but not tight and uncomfortable against your body.  These pants are definitely worth the investment, they are well-made, sturdy and thick with a flattering straight leg.

I love ScotteVest's playful name for their travel cargo pants: The Margaux Cargaux. These are super functional travel pants, featuring 11 pockets and made out of 82% Rayon, 13% Nylon and 5% Spandex.

These pants are super gadget friendly so if you want your electronics in easy access on the plane, you can easily fit your phone, camera, wallets and whatever in these pants. These pants are engineered to balance the weight of the pants for the ultimate comfort and even when the pockets filled, you won't look bulky while striding through the airport.

55% Linen/45% Cotton

Columbia's Coastal Escape capri pants are super cute and come in basic khaki and two other bright, fun colors. They are made of a 55% Linen and 45% Cotton blend and feature a comfy and loose fitting drawstring closure.

I almost always wear my knock off Uggs on the plane and they pair perfectly with capri pants. These pants will keep you cool in tropical climates and they feel super soft and summery. They are perfect for a long flight but also ideal as a coverup for your bikini after a day at the beach. 

The bottom cuffs of the pants are rollable so you can adjust the pants length however you like. The material is meant for hot climates so it is on the thin side, and can be a bit see-through. This shouldn't matter while you're sitting on the plane but if you're on the shyer side, you might want to go with the darker, blue fabric option. Otherwise these are an adorable pair of capri travel pants.

Opps Comfy Yoga pants are the best for travel! They are super soft and loose, they feel just like pajama pants. They are designed specifically for yoga so of course they move great with your body. These are palazzo pants so they are fashionable and stylish.

Opps pants are lightweight and bargain priced so they will work for any budget. They feature a high-waist, which is optimally flattering and forgiving if you have a bit of a yummy. Even though the pants are inexpensive, the fabric still feels soft and surprisingly luxurious.

These pants fit well, are breathable but still warm enough for a cool, air conditioned flight and are made of a stretch knit fabric. I feel like a little genie in these pants and they are comfortable enough to hang out in a cramped little genie bottle (which is pretty much equivalent to what it feels like in an economy flight these days.
