Summary

These pants are really nice for hiking in cool weather. They are cheap, comfortable, and fit very well. The construction is nice, but there is only one pocket.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Athletic fit/not baggy
  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • Belt is useless, comes loose every half hour
  • Not terribly weatherproof
  • Pulls on leg hair
  • Lack of pockets

These pants fit very well, and are not baggy at the ankles like some other pants. But, the odd inner lining does pull out some of my leg hair which is very odd.

The adjustability is not very good. The belt is hopeless, and comes loose all the time. Must constantly tighten.

The fabric beads water for a short time, but it is not very water resistant. I find my legs wet in the rain pretty quick.

The fabric is relatively breatable, and light for softshell.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Denim jeans might cut when you're traipsing around the street, but reach for the Stoic Men's Microlith Softshell when you head into the mountains. Highly breathable and highly water-resistant, these threads provide lightweight protection from the elements whether you're climbing the Tetons in September, skate-skiing in April, or backpacking in June. Articulated knees and stretch fabric let you maneuver easily. Just slip a snack or car key in the welded-on thigh pocket and head for the hills in this simple, supremely-versatile pant.
