Let's not over-complicate things: We're talking about pants here. Pants. Not a backpack. Not hiking shoes. Not a sleeping bag. Pants.
And while a poor choice can make you slightly uncomfortable on the trail, most of the top products from reputable brands will perform reasonably well.
The only way you can mess this up is if you buy capris or something off-the-charts like that.
Therefore, we're not going to write a 2,000-word review on pants. If you want that, and would like to hear all about how the nylon fabric dries quickly, and the water repellent finish wicks water, and this pair weighs two ounces less than that pair, there are plenty of other sites that do that.
But if you're tired of reading several-thousand-word articles you found on Google that just give you a rundown of all the things you could buy and don't actually answer the question of what you should buy, we've got your back.
Keep it simple:
We recommend the North Face Men's Sprag 5-Pocket Pants as you can see above. They're light, quick-drying (with a DWR water resistant finish so they can serve as light rain pants), and not incredibly expensive. Plus they'll look good on the trail and around town so you can use them as travel pants as well. Dual purpose. Doesn't need to be more complicated than that. Go buy them and then you can get back to focusing on practice. Or pants. Whatever.
