    Light, stretchy and comfortable.

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    These are light, fast-drying summer weight pants. The fabric is stretchy and non-binding, and the sizing is right on. I wear a 34" waist in most pants and the 34 in these is comfortable and reasonably loose through the butt and thighs (I'm a cyclist with big thighs). The inseam is around 34", and there is a cinch at the cuffs that will allow them to be bloused like BDUs. Moderate wind and water resistance, so don't view them as a rain pant. These replace cotton hiking pants nicely.

    float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

    • Size Bought: Medium

    Awesome pants straight up. I feel that they run true to size and have a nice stretch to them. They adjustable elastic band can turn them into capris when you're it's sending time! I haven't been able to rip them yet through bushes or rocks. So if you have to wear pants, wear these.

    Overhyped

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    I bought these as a lightweight breathable softshell for winter hiking. They shed snow better than regular hiking pants but you still have to brush them off occasionally. They breath well but this means they also don't block wind well. They fit snug like hip huggers when I got them but after 2 days the waist stretched out and now I need a belt. If you are looking for softshell pants buy softshell pants. If you are looking for hiking pants, these will do.

    Hey Jim - I better pant for winter hiking would be the Voodoo Pant:
    http://www.backcountry.com/outdoor-research-voodoo-softshell-pant-mens?s=a or the Cirque Pant if you are going more Backcountry:

    The Ferrosi Pants are great for spring, summer and fall hikes, and great for travel!

    Enjoy!

    LIght as a feather, strong as steel

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 36

    On the surface they look like any run of the mill hiking pant. Then you wear them, hike, climb, ride your bike and realize they anything but average.



    I've had two pair for over a year and they are my go to for outdoor adventures. The cut of the waist and position of the pockets allow them to fit with a harness perfectly. The draw string at the ankles are perfect at preventing the cuff from slipping underneath my heal while climbing. The fabric's stretch allows full range of motion and knee raise without pulling the waist down and despite being light and breathable it's tough. Like knee-bar in granite tough.

    Great warm weather hiking pants

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 32/32

    These pants are great for hiking when it's not too hot and not yet too cold. They are very breathable and stretchy making them great for hiking. I also bought them in the shorts which again I love. They fit perfect. I am 5'10" and weigh about 180 lbs and I went with the 32/32 which provides a perfect fit. I would definitely recommend these pants to anyone who enjoys hiking or just being comfortable while lounging around the campfire.

    Comfortable and tough!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    Bought these for a trip to Alaska, wore them multiple days (without wash). Got rained on, mud, slid down rocks. Wiped cleaned later on and no tears in fabric. Bought the 3/4 pant version after returning home, had to have 2 pairs! Great for packing light on a trip and they don't get stinky.

    I finally found them!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    I have been looking for a pant for my long distance hiking trips and some kayaking. I was looking for a non cargo pant that had some stretch, was quick drying, and somewhat stylish. These are exactly what I was looking for. The gray is sharp. They dry lightning fast and stretch enough that there is no resistance. Definitely gonna buy a couple more pairs.

    Inseam too long

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 36

    The waist size was true, but the inseam too long. I am 6'0, 210lbs, and normally order a 36/32. This inseam seemed like a 36, and the drawstrings at the bottom prevent any easy tailoring. Otherwise, the pants are high quality and I would love them.

    Never wear another pair of pants again

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 30

    Whick water away, never so hot to sweat, durable even cranked inside pedals and gears on the trails. Comfortable even against sensitive skin!

    favorite pants

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    I'm about to buy a second pair. I would say they run true to waist size with a slim athletic fit in the legs. Great for use with a harness and I also love the cinch drawstring on the ankle. It may get annoying for straight up crack climbing but it keeps the pant leg out of the way on slabby/face climbs. The side pocket is perfectly placed, the material is amazing.

    The best fitting outdoors pants!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 30

    I just got them, so haven't tried them in the backcountry, but the way these fit, like slim fit jeans, but really thin, are just perfect! As other reviewers pointed out they are a little large, which is why I ordered a 30 (I usually wear 32, I'm more of a 31) and they fit perfectly.

    Good hiking and climbing pant

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I've worn these hiking, climbing, working, biking, and relaxing and I've found them to be great doing all those things. The pants are lightweight and breathe well. They are very comfortable and their low profile helps with wearing a harness. My range of motion in these is not limited as they do stretch a little bit, so more flexible maneuvers are no issue. I normally wear a 32x32 pant and found that these pants in size 32 fit me well. I only wish I could cinch the ankle openings a bit more when I pull them over my calves.

    Great pants if they fit...

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased a pair of these in the long length a couple of years ago and think they're great. For reference, I'm 6'2" tall, 170 lbs and the 34 waist long length fits perfectly. Everything about them is top notch from the fabric to the fit. Wanting another pair, I see this year Outdoor Research discontinued making different lengths. The 34 waist (no length options) is just too short, so I returned them. Wake up, OR - everyone on the planet is not 5'10" tall! I hope your rep reads this review. For those of you with shorter legs, these pants are great. They get 5 stars for design and performance, no stars for length options.

    UPDATE: Hey OR, still no long length? What gives? If you notice, I'm not the only one with this complaint, both on this and other review sites.

    I had a similar issue. The length of these pants are based on the waist size. I'm also 6'2" and need a 34" inseam to not feel like I'm wearing high water pants whenever I move. I had to go up to a 38" waist to get an inseam that felt comfortable. The bonus was also a little more comfort in the thigh (I'm 210lbs). The obvious drawback was quite a bit of extra space around the waist, but nothing a belt didn't fix. If you can deal with that, for the price, these are an awesome lightweight outdoors pant.

    Water and tear resistant

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs large

    Used for hiking, everyday casual, umpiring baseball games. in a word.. Fawesome.. They run just a tad big and are long. I am 6'3" with a 36" waist / 34 inseam and the 36 fits me perfect. I added a belt for staying power. They are super lightweight. Felt good on 80deg days in the sun. They have a slight stretch and the resist tearing from scrambling rocks to my Labrador jumping on me to thorn bushes in the wild. They are not bullet proof, but as close as you need for normal active lifestyle.

    Excellent quality, style, and comfort

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs large

    Yes, they run a little big so you only have yourself to blame if you buy the wrong size. I wear a 34, bought a 34 and they were a tad bit loose. Added a nylon belt now I'm good to go.

    I love the bit of stretch these pants have. Complete freedom of movement, and the material is soft, quiet, yet resistant to tears when brushing against bushes and thorns. The material dries very quickly, and these pants are also very light and breathable so I have been able to wear them comfortably in 90+ degree weather. Not too baggy, not too tight. Great for hiking/climbing and stylish enough to wear for a casual night out on the town.

    These pants immediately replaced my North Face and Columbias. I'll be buying more of these soon! Great product all around!

    Not true to size

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs large

    I am somewhere in the waist size of 35. These only came in 34 to 36 so I got the 36. They fit more like 38. I read the reviews and ignored when the reviews said they run big. Well they run big. I am average so I should have been able to get away with a 36 even if I had to wear a belt. Nice pants but again sizes run big.

    OR makes great gear!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    These pants are absolutely incredibly. Stretchy enough for me to wear to the crag, comfortable enough for me to wear them during those week long backpacking trips, and tough enough to withstand those disgusting cracks you don't really want to climb.

    I'm a 34 (waist) and 30 (inseam) what size should i get, the sizing options are a little odd. I just bought a Pewter Size: 34. Hopefully i got it right.

    Will there be size 32 coming in anytime...

    Will there be size 32 coming in anytime soon?
