I am a land surveyor, therefore I'm constantly squatting/crouching down looking for stuff. I immediately was drawn to the abrasive but yet flexible material the pant is made of. But after putting them on, my wife and I decided, they are cut like 'skinny jeans'. I am 5'9" 170, athletic build but have thinner than average legs/calves (bought the 32x32) and the pants are close to snug around my chicken legs. I will try the normal AP pant next. I'm just not into the skinny jean look.

I got these for canping/hiking in less favorable conditions. Usually I wear shorts all the time but I needed some pants for hiking in colder weather. These fit great and are warm.

If you already own the original AP pant getting this one won't be hard to add but if you have not had this brands AP (All Purpose) then why not start with the top of the line... A little heavier which is like for fall and mountain living. Snap back pockets are a nice addition and trico lined pockets are a nice addition. What I like most if the utility. I can wear for almost any outdoor activity but can also use it for a night on the town and my wife doesn't complain when I wear it out for date night. As a guy this is basically the trifecta for a dude.. Well done Mountain Hardwear!!! My new favorite pant.

Is the material/cut of this pant amenable to hemming?

The Material is strong, but not gonna stop scissors from cutting that material is someone tried. You'll be able to helm these.
