I bought my first pair 4 months ago and was very impressed. It?s hard finding pants that fit me so for that price I bought 2 more pair, in the other colors. These fit those with an athletic build, larger thigh/quad & glut but slim waist. The elastic waist is great but doesn't look like elastic. I also like what they did with the leg pockets. The left leg pocket has a zipper. The right leg and 2 back pockets are Velcro with a flap and tapped. There is even a small front pocket perfect for small MP3 player. The legs are pretty easy to zip off converting them into shorts. Pulling them over boots won?t work but small shoes should fit through. The materiel feels quality. Their 5-6 oz heavier then the REI pair I also have. My REI's, however, do have a side zipper on the legs making them easy to remove over boots without sitting down. I?m an avid hiker and I do have concerns about taking them out on a trail. The reinforced stitching is strong but feel a little coarse on the skin between the thighs. It?s fine for regular daily wear but I think if hiking 7 or so miles could be bothersome. I?d give them five stars if the legs had a side zipper. GREAT FOR TRAVELING LITE: -Shorts and pants all in one (less cloths to pack) -No ironing -Belt is hemmed in. (One less thing to remember and pack) -Liter then jeans in your luggage. Note: They have metal zippers on the legs. You may get pulled aside for extra scanning at the airport security.
Snap closure wouldn't snap tightly Belt buckle released whenever I leaned against something
Pluses: Fits muscular legs well. Looks stylish. That's important in a go-bag where a drop in a fancy restaurant might be needed. Sheds stains and drys very fast. Cargo pants. Wrinkle free even after months of being packed away, loosely in a bag that gets tossed around.
Minuses: As others have suggest, the waist buckle tends to pop open when light crashed up against anything.
Biggest minus: no longer available.
Love the shirt and the great price I got it for.
Very durable!! My husband love them
a very nice and comfortable one. also the option to use it as a shorts or wear it in full is very good. lot of pockets are there to keep your items.
