Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 160 lbs
Size Purchased: Large?

Typical use:
Backpacking as part of a full-time job for a federal land management agency

Pros:
Cool colors, that make these socks look fantastic with sandals (PacNW style)
Lifetime warranty

Cons:
Dense knit (which I assume provides for longevity) does not provide much cushion and tends to become "harder" with use by holding dirt and grime

Conclusion:
I actually prefer to buy cheaper, yet more cushioned socks like Bridgedale

I have used these pants for two seasons in a row working in the backcountry for trail work, backpacking, general hiking. The material is light and awesome, but tears EXTREMELY easily. If you plan on being anywhere near granite prepare to carry around a hefty duct tape kit.
Most importantly, the stitching is abominable! First, they are way over stitched (to make them look cool and high tech I presume). Secondly, I think dental floss would have been a thousand times stronger than the stitching they use. Amongst the group of about 10 people I work with every single pair of pants was falling apart within 2 weeks. I have never purchased an outdoor product that failed so completely, so quickly under what I consider pretty standard conditions for the supposed use of the pants (backcountry activities). Honestly, I would run not walk from these pants. They only real use of these is to cruise the mall or look cool hopping out of an H3.
I usually don't write review but the total frustration I had with these pants warranted a response.
