I bought these pants 3 months ago for hiking but have ended up wearing them on all of my outdoor adventures! They're practically waterproof, have a really flattering fit (most hiking pants are kind of loose and unflattering), and convert really easily. I've worn them hiking several times, and even took them into caves to go spelunking. While everyone else's pants ended up with holes and scrapes from the sharp rocks, these held up without a single tear. And they're very stain resistant. The only problem is that they are a little bit long--perfect for when I'm in my hiking boots but the bottoms might drag if I wore them with flip flops or flatter shoes. Either way, I'm looking forward to buying another pair because I wear them more often than I have time to do laundry!
