Lightweight versatility for three-season adventure.
The Men's Horizon II Convertible Pant is The North Face's lightest convertible pant, and it's perfect for warm-weather hiking, tropical travel, and climbing. Its nylon ripstop fabric dries quickly, resists abrasion, and protects your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays, and a DWR coating sheds water to help keep you dry in rainy weather. This relaxed-fitting pant converts to ten-inch shorts thanks to the zip-off legs, and it also features a gusseted crotch for uninhibited mobility, and zippered front pockets for security.

A big fan so far.

I took this backpacking along the Oregon coast and throughout the trip they were very comfortable and breathable. I am normally a size 32 but these seem to fit a lot slimmer so I got a 34 and that ended working out well although I needed a belt to tighten the extra space. I have the Columbia silver ridge version as well and compared to those, the North Face convertibles seem to be made of a thicker material, but both are great. I haven't experienced the pocket problem mentioned before, but the only thing I carry in my pocket when I hike is my phone and pocket knife and they feel like they do in any other pants. Besides the backpacking trip I have only taken these on short hikes in the small mountains surrounding Eugene although there's not much out there to beat them up. I bought the brown color which turned out to be a lot lighter in color than the picture makes it out to be but it still looks nice. Once I have the opportunity to take these out more I will leave an updated impression, but for now I recommend these.

These pants are far from great for a few reasons :
1. Only has a single secure (zipper) pocket that is poorly placed . If you put a wallet there or keys it will rub against your upper left leg.
2. The two standard side front pockets ate made of mesh fabric, so stuff tends to get stuck.
Note that it is mis advertised here there is only 1 zippered pocket.
Apart form that, the rip stop fabric is okay . Compared to a similar priced Columbia silver ridge 2 and Titanium, the TNF fall short.
Update: pressure button just broke - pans are useless.
Love these pants!

I bought a pair if these back in December but didn't start wearing them until about a month ago when I started hiking more. These are FANTASTIC!!! Very light and provide just enough to keep you comfortable when hiking in the cooler mornings. Not water proof or wind resistant, but that's not why I bought them. The color coded leg zippers are great so you don't get them mixed up. I wish I had purchased 2 or 3 pairs instead of 1 when I had the chance. The sizes are a true to form. I would suggest a flexible belt to go with these. TNF did a great job.
