I really love these pants. Is there a newer model that is similar to these?
Yes, there are a few...Here is a popular choice:

Are these pants soon going to be all sizes again?
Unfortunately we wont be getting any back in stock in the near future.
These pants are great. They are great for summer hiking in the Adirondacks. They are cool and light are dry very quickly. I would suggest these to anyone who hikes during any warm weather.
I wear a medium in everything I own (5'9", 150, 30/30) and I am usually a bit weary when the sizing of pants isn't 30-32, just in case I get fatter in the foreseeable future. However, I went w/ the size S as per the sizing recommendations, and the waist fit is very good and the length is also very good, if not a tad long. I'd say size S is a spot-on 30/30.
The material feels very thin, but it's held up very well so far. It's not stretchy, but it has just a little bit of give to it and it has been quite durable thus far through normal hiking use. The only sliding I've done on my butt is on snow/ice with them, so I can't attest to butt-sliding durability on gravel. They are also fairly windproof. The built-in belt is fine, and the pockets feel like they are placed kind of on the side, rather than towards the front like regular pants pockets but that did not interfere with use at all.
The thing I like best about these pants is that they move really ridiculously well while hiking up rocks and anytime I have to take giant steps and/or stretch out with my legs. They're absolutely comfortable, and I wouldn't think twice to buy another pair, even if it wasn't off of SAC at a discount. Buy.
These pants are perfect for hiking or casual wear. They are cool and cut for action. I love that Mountain Hardwear offers these pants in a tall size and that the fit around the waist is easily adjustable.
All the small things that make the difference.
Received these pants. Used them for some pretty moderate condition hiking. Belt included in fantastic- clips in nice and easily, very easily adjustable. Love the adjustable elastic bottoms, makes swimming in them a treat, and for those extra hot days. Back pockets are positioned like the side pockets of a suit pant (so no like jeans), makes it great for climbing and when you're backpacking to access things easier. Minimalistic design, nice and tailored fit but not tight at all (not daggy baggy hiking pants- would actually wear this around town!).
After I received the first one, I immediately bought a second one that are on their way now!
Finally, a small that is a small! I tried on 10+ pair of "small" hiking pants (I'm a true 30/30) and these ones actually fit! They are fairly wind-proof, and very lightweight. Excellent wicking, and they don't smell if you need to wear them for 3 days straight on a rugged trek.
Well built, and they have not shown any signs of wear so far.
Nice, if I can find my size!!!
These pants are light weight and look great. BUT good luck finding them, anywhere. I live in Chicago, and no local retailers carry these.
Sizing is an issue though. I am a 32" waist, 33" inseam and bought the medium regular (long is no longer carried by Backcountry.com). The waist was perfect, but if I was an inch or two larger they would be too tight. The sizing chart lists the medium at 32"-34" inseam, but there is no way I could see a 34" waist fitting in to these.
Length was not good, which is why I am sending them back. The medium regular is too short for me, I have a 33" inseam. These barely come to the top of my boots.
Finding these pants in my size has proven to be literally impossible. BC.com and other retailers do not stock medium long, which is kind of mind boggling considering that 32"-34" waist x 33"-34" inseam is a very common length. BC.com told me that they are not going to get my size in this pant, which is VERY disappointing. Local retailers don't carry it at all, and as far as I know, there isn't a way to order directly from Mountain Hardware.
went real well, besides the fact that it's march, pants are awesome. These are the "Khaki" color

It's really light.
Great for hiking
I love my Canyon pants. Have taken them on numerous winter hikes with just a base layer underneath. They're comfortable, light, durable, and they fit great (true to size). In addition, the back pockets are cut so that you can access them even with a backpack on.
My Favorite Pants for home, office, mountain, and around town
I am 6'1" and the regular inseam fits me well. I like how light they are and they are surprisingly warm. Somehow, I can pull off wearing them to the office. They fit my thick thighs and bubble bottom very well. I recently was diagnosed with a thyroid problem and a sudden 20lb weight gain left me with only one pair of pants that fit - these! For that reason, I ordered three more pairs. I will likely wear these for many years - please don't change the cut or pattern Mountain Hardwear!!! It's always been hard to find pants that are comfortable for me and these are it.
great for traveling, dry fast!
I bought Medium-short size 32 waist. im 5´9 and 165. they fit great and dry fast. i have been using them everyday for a 4 month trip in South America. bought them especially for the trip. these are some of the only quick'drying pants I have found that actually fit! Would recommend them for hiking, traveling, lots of walking. lightweight and dries fast
I have had two pair of canyon pants for several years now and they must be indestructible; in fact, they improve with age. They are perfect for the climate here in central Texas: light enough for sun protection fishing in the heat of the summer, quick drying, and warm enough, when combined with a light base layer, for our coldest winter days. They do a great job blocking wind as well. Can't recommend them highly enough.
Look/Feel Amazing, But...
Like everything made by Mountain Hardwear, these pants are the real deal. Comfortable enough to lounge around in, and light enough for hot weather hiking. It's features are outstanding too, 4 pockets that could easily a Nalgene each, and elastic around the ankles to keep them over the shoe-tops or up on the mid-calf (for extra hot days). My complaint though is their durability. After one day of bouldering, I came away with several large tears in the seat and knees. These pants are a great piece, but obviously not made to take too much abuse.
Banff National Park, Alberta
Plain of Six Glaciers hike. Start ealy to avoid the crowds but it's chilly. As the temp goes up, so do the pant legs.
Worth the hype
These pants are a great addition to anybody's gear. I am a trim 165 lb.s and 5'10. I went with the medium but could have chosen the small too. They are a little long but fit over a pair of thick-soled Asolo's well. What I love the most about them is the versatility. They are very light weight and breathable but still shed a chilly wind. Add a baselayer and you're ready for almost anything. The features of the pant are the icing on the cake. The built in belt is tough and easily adjustable. Quick drain pockets and easy drying make a dip in the river an easy decision. My favorite is the hidden elastic at the ankle, which makes them easy to roll up and they stay put. Much easier then worrying about a busted zipper on a convertable pant. Note: the squeeze tightener is a little hard to find. It's covered in its pocket. If you're looking for your first pair of hiking/climbing pants, you can't go wrong with these. These are my first pair but won't be my last.
How would these pants fair in cold weather...
How would these pants fair in cold weather with a Base Layer, and a Shell over them?
These pant's are made of some tough fabric, but it's pretty thin. They aren't going to provide much warmth. However if you're just wearing them under the shell so that you can take off the shell and wonder around town without looking like a stooge in your baselayer - they'd be perfect for that. You'll barely notice them.
Worked well trekin' through the woods in Northern Idaho. It was quite wet but the water didn't stick to me. After an extended time some contact areas (knees) started to soak in barely, but they dried extremely fast after I got out of the brush. They're light and comfortable and I do like the belt system. I probably won't wear them for much more than outdoor activities because I don't really prefer the nylon look in everyday use. They pack down very small. Be cautious in very cold weather. I wore them in around 40-50 degree F weather and was fine, but if there was snow on the ground I would have opted for something a bit heavier or another layer.
Great climbing pants
These are great for climbing. I wear them to climb indoors and they don't restrict your movement at all. I wear a size 32 waist and the Mediums fit great.
