    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    I love these but too baggy and too long

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium/Short

    I love these pants. I think the material is great. Cool enough to wear on a hot day (90 degrees in when turned into shorts) and warm enough to wear when it gets to 40-50 degrees.

    But they are too big for me. I normally wear 32x30 in jeans. These were more like 32L than 30L even though the size chart says 30 for the short length.

    I wore it around town to see how they were in 50 degrees, and it was pretty drafty in the ankles because the pants were pretty baggy. If they were a little bit more slim in the ankles i would have no problem wearing these without leggings when the temp is in the 30s.

    Just to give kind of a baseline comparison, Kuhl's 32x30 fits me perfectly.

    Nice pant, bad belt

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: L/G

    I have a number of zip off pants including 4 pair of North Face Paramount Peaks. Within a month or two of purchase the female rocked part of the buckle broke on 3 of them. As a result just so much as a gentle touch will cause the buckle to open.Trying to replace the belt through the tight closed passage made for the belt is very difficult. The original must be cut because neither end of the buckle will fit through the tight belt passage and it is near impossible to find a belt to replace the old one that one can feed through the passage. If you are traveling it is a real pain to try and fix it in the middle of a trip and/or embarrassing while standing in a restaurant in a foreign land fumbling with your pants as your belt springs open. Great light weight pants that pack easily are comfortable, can wash at night and be dry in the morning but belts are pathetic.

    Almost perfect! (Too baggy)

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Small/Long

    I travel light with carry-on only and I love me some convertible pants for when I'm travelling from point to point or hiking. Like several people here I had the Columbia Silver Ridge Convertible Pants and while they were good, these are a step above and the best around. Here's why:

    - The jeans style horizontal cut front pockets. Best for travel as things don't fall out and it's harder for pick pockets to get their dirty little digits into.

    - The amount of pockets. It’s a convertible pant… It’s not about looking great for a night on the town, it’s all about function and these don't skimp on the pockets. I’m also loving the cargo pocket design on these. Very neat and stay flat when nothing in them. High fives to TNF pocket designers.

    - These are still light but I’m really liking the heavier fabric for warmth in cooler temps and durability.

    - Colour coded leg zippers are cool instead of having a label attached to zippers which stick out.

    - Good thing they have leg length options. The Small waist Medium length was way too short for me and I'm not freakishly tall at 6'1

    The only thing I don’t like about these pants is they are too baggy for my personal taste. I think TNF could easily slim these up and still have plenty of room for mobility, but that’s just me. Otherwise these are an amazing pair of travel/hiking pantaloons and I wear something else if I want to impress the ladies.

    Best hiking pants I've ever owned

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL Long

    These pants are comfortable and stand up to the outdoors. I have hiked many miles of trails as well as off-trail in these pants, and I will be buying more. They are easy to convert to pants or shorts, and they dry quickly when wet. I love all the pockets and was impressed with how well they protected me in heavy brush while hunting. I would recommend these lightweight, comfortable, practical pants for anyone who spends time outdoors or being active.

    Best hiking pants even for women

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium short length

    I am a 5'4 female hiker and I love these pants! They are heavy duty and have lots of pockets and a normal waist. They fit me better than Womens version. Too many women's pants are low rise and have few pockets and this pant suits me fine. I have two pair of these and the short version is perfect for me and requires no alterations. These are too warm for summer for me, but on shoulder seasons they are great. I would wear for winter hiking but below 40 I would add thermals mainly to stay warmer when I stop.

    It's the little things

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Great pant, nice material. Sizing is a bit odd (feels like the ranges are all shifted down an inch or two) but pockets galore and the features are awesome. E.g. The zippers for converting to shorts are even color coded... red for right. So you don't have to decipher or try twice when you need to get em on in a hurry.

    It's the little things

    Very comfortable

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I bought the Columbia silver ridge first since they were half the price but they were very uncomfortable. I ordered a size up and they were extremely tight in the crotch. Not sure how anyone could hike in them. I'm 5'10" and 180 athletic build. So I'm not a large guy. I returned them and promptly ordered these north face paramount peak pants and they are completely worth the extra money. Heavier material but light and plenty of leg and crotch room to move around comfortably. I can definetly see myself ordering another pair in the future.

    New go-to pants

      I love these pants. I wanted to try a pair of convo pants for awhile and bought some Columbia silver ridge pants because they were inexpensive. I liked them and decided I liked the style so I stepped up to the paramount II. Wow, the quality is amazing. They feel like they will last a long time. Zippers all work nicely and it's great to have different legs have different color zippers. They fit well and feel good to move in. I have 2 pairs now and will be back for more. These are my new go to pants.

      Comfortable, Good fit

      Great for hiking or for weekend pants. Breathable, want to swim? unzip the legs and jump in.

      Great pants!

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

      My choice for hiking/backpacking

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      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!

      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.

      Great Pants!

      Love these pants but the sizing is off

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times
      • Fit:Runs large
      • Size Bought: 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.

      Decent Pair

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times
      • Fit:Runs large
      • Size Bought: 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
      • Size Bought: 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

      are these pants good for winter hiking in new england

      Should be. May need thermals under. I would wear these hiking in Pac NW without thermals down to 40. Below 40 I would probably have thermals. These are fairly heavy but I would say medium weight not necessarily winter weight but if you are hiking you will stay warm and then when you stop for lunch maybe have a pair of easy on rain pants to stay warm just like any other layrpering you might do for stopping.

      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...

      Best Answer

      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!

      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.
