Don't Change Them, Please!!
I didn't buy the pants for their insect repelling qualities. I bought them simply because I am constantly in search of convertible pants that I can use for work. I look for comfort. These pants are very comfortable. I cannot have velcro closures or expandable cargo pockets (they snag on too many things). I also need to wear a heavy belt. I do not like integrated belts. The pants wear very well (bomb proof) and the more they're washed the better they get. They dry quickly.
Please don't change them! Every time, it seems, I find a good pant, the manufacturer feels compelled to "update" the product. They are simple and effective, functional. There is brilliance in the basics.
