Great pants!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 1"
    Weight: 170 lbs
    Size Purchased: medium

I love my North Face Paramount Peak II! I've lost a lot of weight since buying them 6 months ago, so I've bought another pair that's a different brand to compare with in an objective manner. The NFPP have zippered ankles, light weight, breathable yet stop the fierce winds of Mt Washington, NH. They have kept me cool in the heat and warm in the cold without adding or subtracting layers. There is no rubbing or chaffing issues. In fact, the best thing I can say about them is......you won't even know your wearing them. I now have a 29 waist, so the medium is too large to wear. I'm 6', 170 lb so I need a small/long. They don't go by specific waist sizes, but they have a fair amount of adjustment. They fit really well through the thighs and the zippers are light weight, quality, and work really great.

GREAT PANTS!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have 3 pairs and am ordering 2 more. Wear them almost every day. I ride bicycles many miles a day and hike, and have no rub issues. Great material, big pockets, quick drying, very light, stains wipe right off and they don't retain odors. I wear them for several days at a time on adventures. 2 pair will hold you indefinitely. Wash in a stream and hang dry in no time. THESE ARE THE BEST OUTDOOR PANTS I'VE EVER FOUND!

Backcountry service GREAT & pants good

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 170 lbs
    Size Purchased: M/Reg

The pants are well built. Sizing seems to run a bit large. Called Backcountry and it was no problem to exchange them for a smaller size. Had the replacement pants within days of returning the large pants. Thank you for your prompt, professional service!

Husband's fav go to pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I just bought him a third pair, he ruined the a pair scooting down scree field with our injured 95# dog. He wears these all year. I can tell he loves them. Def a must have.

Do the zippers for the shorts rub against knees or thighs? Sometimes I have issues with convertable pants that have overly bulky zippers that rub when hiking...

Responded on

No. Definitely not. I have 3 pairs and am ordering 2 more. Wear them almost every day. The zipper is sandwiched between 2 layers of smooth hemmed fabric. Not even noticeable. I ride bicycles many miles a day and hike, and have no rub issues. Great material, big pockets, quick drying, very light, stains wipe right off and they don't retain odors. I wear them for several days at a time on adventures. 2 pair will hold you indefinitely. Wash in a stream and hang dry in no time. THESE ARE THE BEST OUTDOOR PANTS I'VE EVER FOUND!

My choice for hiking/backpacking

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 185 lbs

After finding the Paramount Convertible years ago I'm hooked. I now have at least 3 pair.

I love smart flexible layers, these are exactly that.

Biggest standout is the slightly heavier weight material , feels much more durable and provides a touch more warmth on a cold morning.
Fantastic that they come in length options

Otherwise all the benefits of other convertibles, full coverage for sun, wind, or in cooler temps, open the knees a bit for some ventilation as things warm up, or strip them off and use them as running shorts that actually have a place for your keys, phone, and wallet without feeling constricting.

Due to heavier weight fabric they may take a little longer to dry but are also warmer when damp/wet than more standard lightweight nylon.

No stretch so I like to size with a bit of room, internal belt takes care of the rest but still maybe not ideal for something acrobatic like bouldering.

Cloth belt has low profile and goes all the way around (not just sewn at sides) but can get twisted inside the channel and is a pain to get untwisted then. Plastic buckle a bit larger profile than needed and might contact a backpack buckle but haven't had one fail.

I've also had to repair some seams that have failed due to abuse, nothing a needle and thread can't take care of pretty quickly. I've only damaged the actually material on a pair of these once (dropped the legs but let them sit at ankles not realizing they had slid below the heel so got the business side of my boot for miles, patched that up too :D )

A bit less around the town friendly/clearly outdoor design

NF has tried several pocket designs over the years so make sure to check out the model you're getting to make sure they are what you want, some years I've liked, others not as much. (NF if you're listening I prefer jean style[more horizontal] hand pockets not ones that open on the seam [more vertical] that make it awkward to get into :D)

Great Pants!

Great Pants!

This photo was taken at Gregory's, Bald Great Smoky Mountains. Over 3 days I had these pants configured in every imaginable way. The dwr works great and there was never a time when I was concerned about durability. I'm 5'10 and when zipped off the short are about an inch above my knee.

Love these pants but the sizing is off

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: M/M

Great feel to the Peak II pants and the zip off legs are a bonus. I do have a problem with the sizing. All other brand pants I wear between a 33 or 34 waist. I purchased these in a M/M size. First off according to the size chart the inseam is suppose to be 32. I measured the inseam and it's a definite 31 with the pant leg pulled tight. They did look a bit short when wearing them. According to the size chart these are a 32 - 34 in the waist. They are more like a size 35 - 36 in the waist. I've now decided to purchase a S/LONG just to see how they fit. I will comment further once I've tried them on for fit. -----

EDIT: Just tried on the S/Long. The inseem measured 33" with the leg pulled tight. According to the chart they are suppose to be 35.5". The waist is just about right. In comparison They fit the same as a pair of Levis 559 in a 33 x 32. I've decided to now purchase other colors (again) in the size S/LONG.

What is the inseam length on the shorts, once the legs have been zipped off? I would order an XL/REG as I am 6' tall and weigh 223 lbs.

Decent Pair

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 212 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

Needed a new pair of hiking pants , figured I would give these a shot. Coming from hiking in blue jeans to these is a world of different. With the added ability of leg zip offs to turn these pants into shorts is a bonus.

Not very good quality

  • Fit: True to size
  • Weight: 162 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Just got it today and there is a Scratch on the product, seem the quality control is not very good on North Face... it's too far away for me for return it back.

Its relaxed fit but it seem a bit heavy overall.. will have a try later

Great Outdoor Pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 200 lbs
    Size Purchased: Sh-Med

These are great outdoor pants, they take a beating and keep going. I use them year around. They are great in winter, they keep your legs warm by blocking the wind but they allow you to breath so you won't over heat.
Medium short fits me great, I use 36X30 pants. The Paramount Valley pants which are identical to these except they don't have the relaxed fit.
The only problem with these pants is the waist snap which I heard they fixed. It pops loose if you put pressure on it. I wish they would add more belt loops, I use my own nylon belt.

Sizing wrong

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I wear size 30x30 pants so I ordered these pants in a small. When I tried them on, the waist was a little too big, which I could deal with. But the pant legs themselves were way too wide. I could probably fit two legs into one pant leg. I returned them and will purchase a different pair from a local outfitter.

Nice comfortable pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These pants fit perfectly around the waist but were a little long in length. Im 5'9 and got them in regular length. No big deal for me though. Love the variety of different pockets and how the belt is a slide lock so you dont have to undo the whole belt. Just snap it and adjust how tight you want it. The zip offs work nicely and are quick and easy to do with or without boots on.

The best Pants I haven't broken

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I haven't worn these pants once or twice. I have worn them almost daily, for 8 months. They refuse to fail, in every way.

The DWR coating has long since worn off from weeks on the trail and numerous river crossings. The Nylon is stained and frayed from oil changes and grovelling spring vedawoo climbs. The UPF 50 no longer UPF's because of two weeks spent above 17,--- feet in the middle of Monsoon season. But god do these things know how to work!!

Top Fav Features:
Great belt that is easy to use, with strechy inner belt just in case you forget to fasten it.

Thigh pocket, a lifesaver. Easily stash your wallet, phone, granola bar, poodle into this pocket and velcro it shut. Easy to get to, but bomber to use. Its even pick-pocket proof for when your in some sketchy city areas with thieving 5 year olds!

Comfy, comfy comfy. I wear these things before I do my blue jeans. Wear it with a 30 lb pack - no problem. Wear it with a climbing harness - no problem. Wear it in winter - get a base layer and your good to about 10 degrees f.
Me - 6'1 Normally 30 - 34. 30 - long fit perfect.
Life - proof.

Did the job nicely

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I took these on a few intense hikes and they worked admirably. The legs come of and come back on with no problems. The fit worked well.

good pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

sizing seems right, already used them twice, and think next time even though they come with a belt strap, I will use a belt in the supplied belt loops instead. Very happy with my purchase and would rec them to others

Sizing has changed or QA bad

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I just ordered a pair of medium/long to replace my previous pair of the Paramount Peak II pants that finally fell apart. The current model has a different belt buckle, not sure how I like it yet. The front snap is improved, and will actually stay closed if you unzip the zipper. However, either my pants are mislabeled (bad QA), or the sizing has changed. These pants are 3 1/4 inches bigger in the waist than my previous pair of pants (37.25 inches versus 34 inches).
Update: I returned the pants and got another pair of Medium/Long, these fit MUCH better. I am not sure if the other pants are mislabeled Larges, or if the waist is just stretched out (it isn't bunched up as much in the back). Thanks to Customer Service (Myles, Backcountry Gearhead)
