simple and good

lightweight, comfortably loose, easy zip off and quick drying. what else do you need from pants?
in all there categories the mesa does well. I use these pants for light hiking and daily use and they are serving me well, the fact that the sizes are simple makes it possible to order the pants with confidence (I ordered them to the other side of the world) without trying them on.
the one thing in these pants that doesn't work quite right in my opinion are the pockets. they do their job, but I feel they are awkwardly placed.
I've had these pants for a month now so the real test is yet to come - durability! so far so good, but as a man who goes through pants like... something that you go through a lot of, I hope they well meet my minmal requirement and last the year.
