I own two pairs and have brought them with me on numerous treks through New Zealand, Alaska and Norway. �These pants are very light, very durable, and dry fast. �They have a slim fit which I like as the bottom of the pant tapers in so you don't have a lot of fabric flying around while hiking. I also love that they don't have a waistband; �I specifically wanted a pant without a waistband as I find them uncomfortable. I am 5'11" and usually a 32/32; the 32 fits perfectly. �The shorts stop just above the knee, an ideal length for my height. �I wish the side pockets were a little deeper as change sometimes falls out while sitting, but the small, discrete zippered pocket works well. �Highly recommended. �FYI they do not stretch.

I own two pairs of these pants and they have been tried and true. I took them throughout New Zealand, including a four day hike on the Milford Track, and I had them in Alaska on a five day backcountry trip through Denali National Park. They stood up well on both occasions- they dry super fast after rain, and are made of a lightweight durable cloth that didn't pull or tear, even when hacking through waist high bush and and shrubs. They fit true to size but in a slim way- I'm a 32/32 pant and these in a size 32-R fit like a glove, although I still prefer to wear a belt with them (even though it's not really needed). Another plus is they don't have the elastic waist bands which I find irritating- it seems like all other hiking pants have these now.

I also love how they don't have baggy side pockets which I find just get in the way. The semi-hidden zippered side pocket is perfect for small stuff like snacks, a flashlight, or a utility knife. These also have slimmer leg openings which I prefer. I find the leg openings smaller than other hiking pants from the North Face and Mountain Hardware. I find this makes walking easier- especially through open tundra and bush- and gets less dirt on the bottom of the pants. The material is very light (both in weight and feel) but I never had a problem with warmth in ~40-50 degree weather. They ofter decent wind protection, too.

All in all I find these the perfect pair of hiking pants and will probably be the only ones I wear for a while. A tip: make sure you get these in dark colors (i.e. not the light tan) as dark color hiking pants hide dirt and grass strains better, which is a plus on long treks.
