Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $49.99

I have used these pants a lot for the last eight months and they have performed well. They breathe well in the desert but seem to break the wind enough to make them usable in the mountains. The material dries fairly fast and comes clean with just water. The zip-off feature was nice when I wanted to take a swim, but other than that I never needed to take the bottom of these pants off. I would definitely recommend these pants to anyone who needs a good three-season pant.
