My wife doesn't like sunglasses that look "overly athletic". Makes it hard to buy good glasses with great optics...and she has a small face, making it even harder. These met the need in spades. She loves them, they look good on her, and we field tested them fishing and boating in the Keys. On her, they look very feminine and they're very functional in design!

I feel terrible. I actually like them and think they're worth it. Mine are Yellowstone - they look just like the ones on the Backcountry and Mountain Khakis website. They are heavy, triple-stitched, and have a gusseted crotch. To me, the waist runs a hair large...not a problem...just makes bending easier. Lots of really nice touches are in these pants...heel protectors on the back of the legs, good fit, double pockets on one of the front pockets and unique...dare I say the word...colorways. They fit over boots well. I like the color although it's different. I guess if you want to look like everyone else, you should buy Dockers. I wear mine to work unless I'm meeting with conservative clients and wear them everywhere else. My wife saw how much I liked them and bought another pair for me. Nice.

Cambodian sweatshop? Learn the history of the world. Providing a few jobs to those people after all they've endured seems the least we can do...beats China ;-)

I was prepared to be impressed. However, there's a problem with these that isn't mentioned in the description - they have a built-in mesh brief. That creates issues. Issue #1 - my boys don't like the feel of mesh...especially tight mesh. Issue #2 - if you wear these on a long trip, they must be washed daily, less one face the peril of crotch rot. Normal pants require only the underwear to be washed...a far easier task. A lot of thought went into these pants - if you're into built in panties, I guess they'd be okay. I'm returning mine.

Warm beyond anything I'd expect from a shell and keeps me totally dry. Zippers stiff after a year but you know they won't break! Only problem...the white color won't clean. After a few tree runs and brush-ups, it's become stylishly gray...oh well, matches my hair. Normally one layer underneath is enough...very cold days get two. Great coat. Can't remember the price a year later.

Look - the pods failed on this year's design. Good dealers covered the problem and the bindings then rocked. Excellent control without lag and more and easier adjustability than ever. No problems after that. Everyone makes mistakes. The good folks take care of theirs. Flow did. I'm buying new ones this year with a new board.
