I wore these pants to Disney during July and was very pleased with the fit and comfort. I did not get hot at all. The pockets are perfect for carrying several things. The best part was how quickly they dried after getting wet in the rain. I highly recommend these for any outdoor occasion.
I would recommend this product.

The product construction and material is very good quality. But, the designer of these pants must be uber-skinny with pencil-thin legs. I'm an average sized guy, with what I would classify as an athletic build at 6'0' 185 lbs and the legs are way to small for me to comfortably squeeze into. I bought a 34" waist, which was actually slightly large for me, but the legs are still too small for me to squeeze into. My hips and thighs look like I am wearing spandex. Restricts movement a ton. I'm going to return them and try the Blood and Guts pants, as I have heard they run bigger in the leg area.
I do not recommend this product.

purchased this pant for a coworker. He works outdoors nearly everyday and loves the functionality of the pant - can be worn to indoor meetings or out in the field. Loves the convertible pant and secure pockets. (I own the women's version and feel the same!)
I would recommend this product.

Well made and functional, but my husband sent them back because they were small enough that he did not have full range of motion. He is slender and wears a 32-30 but they did not work for him. Too bad, because they were just what he wanted for a trip.

Lot's of pockets, rip-stop nylon to prevent tears from spreading, SPF, wicking and transition to shorts make these pants perfect for any fishing trip -- saltwater and freshwater.

We checked several resources for convertible pants for my husband to wear on safari in Africa. Other brands ran very baggy, or had zippers at the ankle (which is great for boots, but not if you need to shorten the pants). These fit my very slim husband beautifully, looked really nice on, came in great colors, and he who never gets excited about clothes, was actually excited about these pants. Now if only I could find pants so easily!
I would recommend this product.

This is a great pant--not too baggy yet very light and comfortable. I have several pair of these and wear them almost daily. They are durable, water resistant to a point, however will shrink minimally if machine dryed enough. Zippers never stick and are easy to move up, down or around. Size runs true to fit, Excellent for all outdoors except extreme cold.
I would recommend this product.

I have tried all kinds of hiking pants from various companies. This is my go-to pant now. I took 4 pair on a trip to the Caribbean recently; they worked fantastic. I have the convertible, so technically I had pants and shorts. The material is thin enough so walking in the heat is not uncomfortable - even as pants. And they are quick drying, so if you sweat or have to wash them in a hotel sink they will be dry within an hour or two. I wear a 32 waist, but had to go up to 34 as the 32 waist in this pant was just a wee bit snug. Highly recommended!!
I would recommend this product.

I was not able to find the style and size in the store, but was able to go on line and order the style and size, and was able to get it before Christmas, since it was a Christmas gift. Thank you for getting it here on time.

I like the lightness and durability of the material. The pockets are ample, the front zipper tracks easily, and the pants are convertible to shorts. What's troublesome is the sizing. The pants run true to form in length, but the waist and hip size are not appropriately sized for me. I had to jump to the next waist size, a 36 instead of a 34, which works well for me in most pants.
I would recommend this product.

I bought three of these pants for summer hiking and when the weather isn't to cold. I tried some on at REI and thought that the 36 waist was tight so I ordered the 38x34. I realized that I should have ordered the 36 waist as the 38 was to big and the belt that came with the pants doesn't stay in place when you tighten them up. There is very little movement on the upper thigh when you need to step higher when climbing. Also the lower portion needs a inner or outer zipper to allow for removal over boots.
I would recommend this product.

Love these pants! I travel for fun a LOT and spend a lot of time in the wilderness. My clothing must be comfortable and fit well. It must be versatile. It must be durable. It has to be quick drying. It can't wrinkle easily. These pants fit the bill to a T. I bought 2 pairs. Wonderful clothing. Wonderful piece of gear. Wish they didn't cost so much but if they last 15 years, that's only $6/year. A worthy investment. Definitely a BUY.
I would recommend this product.
