Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought these to try after getting sick of the inconsistent sizing of TNF pants. I am impressed with the quality, durability, and aesthetic appeal of arc'teryx pants. They are expensive, but they have a flattering fit (at least on athletic and thin bodies), are comfy, and as much as I put clothes through, they have stood up to it (had them for 4 years now).
They are passable for casual outings, great for activewear (hiking, mtn biking, etc), dry quickly when wet, have plenty of pocket space, the adjustable webbing 'belt' is very useful, and after all this time mine have never stained, and only have a tiny hardly noticeable tear from climbing over a fence.
Be cautious with their sizing too though...I bought a pair of their more casual pants in the same size, and the legs are super baggy, whereas these fit great. The expense of these pants is worth it if affordable. They were around $80 on sale (around 20/year for 4 years of use) and I easily expect them to last for several more years despite heavy/hard use.
