$380— I was expecting a lifelong pant with terrific quality and features. NOPE, the cheapest zippers on the pockets that I have EVER seen, AND, misconstructed on top of that.

Sent back, then one month later I get them back and the zipper bottom had a cheap, bent-up plastic clasp replaced at the bottom. I had to hammer it and straighten it myself.

Second pair, pocket zipper froze due to the same cheap construction. Sent back, three weeks later they are on a one-week track back to my address. They did say they would pass on my thoughts of a better zipper system to the designers.

At $380, this is completely absurd. Loose threads, poorly-thought design (pockets with buttons on each side of velcro on the thighs -- are we kidding?) and just an odd feel for the whole over-priced thing. Beware. Get some L.L. Bean pants instead.


  • None over $69 Lands End pants


  • Cheap designs
  • Cheap components
  • Bad workmanship

Steer clear of this ripoff.
