Summary

Great pants for hot weather or cold weather. Cute enough to wear out to dinner, burly enough to wear for 10 days straight hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.

Pros

  • Breathable and flexible material
  • Stylish as shorts or pants

Cons

  • Zipper a little tricky when converting

This is about the most stylish pair of true outdoor pants you will find. Cute buttons and pockets will make any lady's behind a happy camper. The pants are both breathable and water resistant, so they were great for me in the Amazon, as well as kept me warm at night while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.  

In addition to a button waist, there is an internal drawstring that works well to keep the pants up and tight after days on the trail without washing.

Summary

Comfortable, durable pant for hiking and light trail work.

Pros

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Fit

Cons

  • Length

I bought this pant originally to wear as a casual hiking pant, but am using it for light trail work. On really hot days, I'd prefer a lighter softshell material as this is just thick enough to feel hot. It is breathable, but not as fast at wicking moisture away on a hotter day. However, this pant is the perfect thickness to not have to worry about getting rips. It is flexible and durable. I would use this for primarily for hiking and light climbing.  

I consider myself tall, 5'8", and the inseam and bootcut to this were a bit long for me. I was also worried that the pant would sit too low.  It does not, but any lower and I would have returned it. I always need pants that aren't low rise, as those do not sit well on my muscular legs and booty!
