Lightweight, quiet, comfortable.
I wear 30x32 usually, I had to get 30 Long in this pant to fit properly. The waist is perhaps a little tighter casual pants in a 30, but remember these are hiking/outdoor pants--they are supposed to fit a little slimmer around the waist so that they don't fall down under strenuous activity. They repel water nicely and dry quickly when wet. Highly recommended and a great value.
