I love this pants!
I was drawn to the simple design of this pants. When it arrived i took note of how light it is. 10oz. Yet it has 3 zippered pockets ( no back pocket ) and a belt.
The material is soft, thin yet stretchy.
The cut is close yet not too tailored. MH claims its durable enough for the backcountry. I will test it when i go to Nepal in november for a 2 week trek.
So far i've only worn it in urban conditions. The material seems to keep clean as i hardly see any stains-even though i kneel quite often during my job.
There are some things which can be improved.
1) zippered hand pockets can be made a little wider
The pair i got from Backcountry was too big. It is a size 34 waist but when i measured it was almost 38!
I managed to get another pair size 30 which fit me perfectly! ( i am size 34 waist)
Overall this is my favorite Hiking Pants right now!
