I have owned these pants for a year now and have worn them at least once a week including around 80 days of hunting and hiking in that time. They have been through thorns, brush, rocks, snow, rain and sun and show hardly any wear. On the down side, my belt buckle broke (which I fixed with a safety pin) and they aren't water proof so you will get wet in a heavy rain or when pushing through wet underbrush. They are a bit on the warm side for the heat of Summer but perfect for cooler weather activities. By far the best pair of pants I own.
