Summary

Owned since April 2006, still look almost new in January 2013. They have been backpacking, gardening, chore-doing, and even shopping. I avoided climbing in them to prolong life. It has worked wonderfully. Best pants I have ever owned, bar none. Awesome pocket space.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Comfortable
  • Spacious pockets
  • Solid construction
  • Length-to-waist ratio

Cons

  • A little warm
  • A little baggy
  • Pocket material

They've bushwacked, knelt on concrete, grass and everything in between, had a pack hipbelt ride on them for probably over 150 miles total, and sat on loads of stuff. Not all of it good.

Pros and cons: I'm almost perfectly average 32 waist 30ish inseam. These fall just 1/4 inch above the upper edge of shoe soles.  

If you like a closer fit, this isn't it. I like the fit, personally

The pockets are made of a smooth, soft material with widely spaced small holes. Like a jersey mesh with more fabric than holes. It's not a huge drawback, I just think it's a bit weird.
