Fantastic pants! I have used these pants in many different scenarios, and they have preformed perfectly. These pants are durable, thick, breath well, dry quickly, and shed a considerable amount of water. Yet, the main reason I purchased these pants was because of my height. I am a very short guy, so it is hard to find a 30" inseam in hiking pants. North Face is one of the few brands which offer this feature. I plan on buying another pair of these pants!
