Because you can't pack an entire wardrobe for multi-day backpacking trips, outfit yourself with the highly versatile Mountain Hardwear Men's Mesa V.2 Convertible Pant.

Plus, a DWR finish and mesh drain panels allow the shorts to dry in a flash after you've cooled off in a crystal clear alpine lake.

Great pant for all occasions

  • Fit:Runs small

Contrary to other reviews on the V.2 pant, I found the sizing to fit me perfectly (30x30). It should be taken into account, however, that I am 5'5" with an athletic build. Those with larger waist lines should anticipate sizing up, as a 30 fits snug about my waist. The convertible feature makes these the most practical pants I own and really saved me while hiking around in Croatia's bipolar climate. The DWR works wonders and seems to shed light rain with ease.

Would I recommend the V.2s? Absolutely, but be aware that the sizing tends to run small.

Great pant for all occasions

Do these have an adjustable elastic cuff?

Hey Aldis,

Just confirmed via reviews on their site - these do not have an adjustable cuff.


Not true to size.

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs small

These run small, had to return.


Good buy.

I have several other convertible pants (North Face Paramount Peaks) and wanted something similar as I wear the bejessus out of those. I think that these will definitely fit the bill. While I agree with bre3209695 about the pockets not being deep enough, I have no issue carrying around my phone, wallet, and a Leatherman (if not attached to my belt). My one issue comes in that they run just a wee bit tight. Nothing to send them back over, but I definitely needed to do some adjusting once I got them on. I have yet to really put these things through their paces, but they seem like a great day hike pant, and work well for an everyday (which is what I got them for).


Lacking in pockets and zips

    These are really nicely constructed, and lightweight. The fit is solid, not too baggy through the legs, although they do flare out slightly towards the ankles. But the front pockets are not nearly deep enough, and will lead to stuff falling out. The back pockets have no velcro or zip closure, and the one zip pocket is very small, barely big enough for sunglasses. Also, this version lacks ankle zips, which I find essential not just for removing the legs, but also for getting the pants to fit right over my boots. So back they went, alas.

    about size.. if the size is 30x32 what...

    about size..

    if the size is 30x32 what is waist size?

    Waist size comes first in that measurement, so that's a 30-inch waist and a 32-inch inseam.
