I bought my husband a pair of these this spring, and he quickly asked for another. These two pants, with their shorts option, have gotten him through the entire summer! He's already asking for more colors for next summer. Now I'm searching for their colder weather equivalent!
I would recommend this product.

I wore these convertible pants hiking John Muir Trail for five days. They are light and comfortable. The difference between other shorts I've worn of this style is the slight stretch in the waste. With the included belt, I've not worn other shorts that can compare in comfort. The legs easily zip on and off and stowed away compact when temps warmed up. Also moved well when climbing over obstacles on the trail.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered a bunch of these to wear each day during Boy Scout Summer Camp in Northwood, NH in August 2015. The idea was to convert the pants to shorts during the day and then zip them back up at night.
Temps were low 90s to low 80s during the day and mid 60s to mid 50s during the night; mostly sunny with some t-storms during the week.
The pants worked out great: very light to wear, never felt hot. I used a Boy Scout web belt (and not the belt included with the pants) and had a Leatherman Surge attached to my belt the entire time. I also had a CRKT knife clipped to a pocket; both held up well on the pants.
When not in use during the day I stored the zipped-off pant legs in the side pockets so I always had them with me to re-zip when needed (I didn't store much other stuff in these pockets so there was plenty of space to store the pant legs).
Still trying to find a pair in color black though...
I would recommend this product.

It seems that whenever I buy the same pants you have changed some of the features I really like. For example the older pair had a zippered rear pocket which is now Velcro and the colors now offered are a lot darker than previous orders. I keep rebuying them because I do like them.

I wore these for a full week on a 70 mile canoe trip. They dried quickly and protected my legs. I did several day hikes and they were very comfortable.

Pants performed as described. They were a great addition to my gear for my recent trip in the Boundary Waters. Dried quickly and stood up to the rugged environment of the BWCA.

I am 6'2 and 200 pounds. I ordered 36x34 and they fit great. I like everything about these pants- the fabric is great, they seem well made, the pockets are functional and the zip off pant feature works well. I don't know why I wore hot, bulky jeans for so long because these are far superior. These are the hiking pants you want.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased these pants for an upcoming European trip so I haven't used them as planned as yet. Will say they are as advertised, nicely made, lightweight and the color is good. I suspect they will perform as desired and having not put them through their paces is the only reason I am giving them good ratings.
I would recommend this product.

The pants are very comfortable (without items in pockets) and durable. My favorite feature being that they dry very quickly and are very lightweight. Being convertible they are great for hot days that may include bushwhacking. Also compared to other brands the price is not bad. There downfall comes to the pockets, granted I carry lots in my pockets, but when full, the pants become really tight, due to lack of stretch, around the crotch and upper leg making movement less comfortable and more constricted. Also the tiny little belt it comes with does not do much for me and it extremely difficult to remove.
I would recommend this product.

These pants fit really well. I am 6'2" 195lb. and the 34" inseam fits great. The pants are a little slim fitting and snug in the rear-end. I wore them in the rain yesterday, they got soaked, but I was dry and they dried inside in about two hours. I recommend these pants for everyday use and outdoors/hiking.

We are going on a cruise in October, 2015 and I wanted something light for packing. These serve two purposes. If it's cool, I have pants to wear. If it gets warm, I have shorts. These fit well and look good. I have two pair ready for traveling.
