I had bought Silver Ridge convertible pants at REI. I am one of the MANY in between sizes, a 31 waist. The 32 waist fit fine. They didn't carry the regular Silver Ridge cargo pants there so I order them online. They are too big, fit like a regular 32 inch waist fits me,,,falling off.
Seems to be a confusing size difference in the style of pants, I am going to send them back and try a pair of 30 inch in the Silver Ridge cargo pants.
I would recommend this product.

Overall a good product in terms of quality. However, the issue with this pants line, and its a BIG issue, is that they run extremely small if you have any type of an athletic build, particularly in the leg/butt area. I normally take a 33/34 size waist and most times i have a little extra space in a 34 waist pants. I ordered these in a 34 size and I couldnt even get them up past my thighs to buckle them and I am 6'1 205 lbs. Great pants if you have a thin build and legs like a bird, otherwise I recommend ordering these pants in a size or even two sizes bigger than your normal pants size.
I would recommend this product.

I've owned Silver Ridge pants in the past and hoped that you had made some improvements. Sad to say, you haven't.
The thing that bugs me the most about this pant is that the belt loops are not distributed in such a way that the belt holds the pant uniformly all the way around. The pant can dip/sag between some of the loops. This makes for a lousy fit and lousy look. The belt, by the way won't stay securely adjusted as to length and the snap doesn't always work consistently/easily. Fix these for me and I'll be first in line to buy a few pair. Thanks!
I do not recommend this product.

I bought a pair to travel with in warm climates and they met every expectation.. They fit great, resist wrinkle and are cool and light but with a sturdy feel to them. I looked at other recommendations and went a size up with a bit of trepidation -- but they fit perfect!
I would recommend this product.

Material is ultra light, quick drying and rip resistant. These pants rock. They keep you cool while protecting you with SPF 50 on your legs. They tend to wrinkle if you do not immediately remove them from the drier. Hang dry is best.
Warning, these tend to fit a little snug (small). I wear a 34 and the 34 is snug. Next, I purchased a 36 and I like the fit much better.
Overall, I'm buying 5 more pair if they go on some type of sale

These pants are great for light work or just casual wear. However, if you intend to do some real tough hiking or work, the material is not strong enough. I often carry a large pocket knife and after only a few times taking in an out of the pocket the pant began to tear. Also, I often do workouts (pushups, burpies....etc....) during my hikes/light jogs and the pant has begun to wear thin on the knees and around the belt loops. But I often beat the heck out of my clothes, so if you are just wearing them for light use.....great pant.
I would recommend this product.

Pants work great as a summer or fall-weather hiking pant. They are very thin and work well when you don't want to wear shorts or you just need a little bit more covering.
I bought them to keep ticks and grass off my legs during summer hikes. Fit well and get the job done.
I have not tried them out in wet weather to see how they perform. They won't give you much warmth on cold days.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these to travel light on my trip to Europe this summer and was hoping to cover both sight-seeing in town and day hiking in the mountains. For hiking they were good. They are well made and fit well. But - the pockets are shallow and tight so I wouldn't say they are really a cargo pant. The net is that you can do better for hiking. For sightseeing they just didn't achieve my goal of looking a little dressier than a hiking pant. Also - I wanted black to hide dirt and work better with multiple shirts but they are not offered in that color. Why is this basic color not offered? I didn't want green so got the darkest color available which is Tusk. It was ok relative to dirt but I discovered one glaring issue - when you wash your hands and there is even a drop of a splash - it leaves a large visible dark spot for a few minutes while you try and get it to dry. This was an embarrassing thing given that sink level for me is just about the level of the zipper. Net - the pants are ok but have a lot of drawbacks. I would not buy them again.
I do not recommend this product.

I'm grateful for the reviews of these pants. My waste is a 35" measured so typically purchase 36"x34". Ordering one size up, 38"x34", like some reviews advised was great. The fit was just a bit loose but very comfortable. The lightweight material with a closer fit is not what this 59 year old was after anyway, haha. The cargo pockets don't have flaps, sleek, and won't catch on drawer pulls, airline armrests, etc. It might help to sew the cargo pocket openings maybe 3/8" at the edges so loose objects won't slip out when zippers not closed. Very comfortable in 90 degrees plus.
I would recommend this product.

These pants are amazing. I would own 10 pair if I could. I wore them in India and the pants were true to their function, the sweat was wicked away from my legs and dried quickly. They are amazingly comfortable too and breath great. I would give them five stars but the velcro patches for the pockets seem a little small, which is fine, but it feels like they won't last a long time. But in all honesty, velcro can only survive so many washes and uses before it just gets worn out.
I would recommend this product.

Like the heading says...literally...I live in these things - Whether at the office, out on the water fishing, or working a film set - I almost always have on a pair of these. They're super comfortable, dry quickly and look great in any situation. Protecting myself from the sun is something I strive for everyday. This product certainly does that without making things too hot or too restraining. I only wish they came in more colors like green and black.
I would recommend this product.
