Perfect Summer Hiking Pants In NE US

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

These are great for hiking in the Northeast US where it can be extremely humid and buggy and there is a lot of foliage and snakes on the trails. I prefer to wear pants for the protection but love that I can zip/vent the legs or zip the legs off completely (which I also do for the ride home). The materials is also lightweight. I am 5' 5" and 120 pounds and the size 2 short fit perfectly without the leg cuffs dragging on the ground at all. I got these in 2 colors.

Women's Ferrosi Convertible Pants

These pants are so comfortable and the fabric is really nice. The pockets are substantial (which you don't always find in women's pants). They were still a bit too long for me but I have had them altered. I will be wearing these when we go to Italy in the fall.

So far they are comfortable

The shorts part is a little longer than I expected. They sit just above my knees. Deep front pockets which I like. Zippers feel Like good quality. Overall I would recommend

Sizing Difficult but Overall Good Pants

I am 5'6, 155 lb and ordered a size 6 originally but it was just a bit too tight in the hip and thigh, which surprised me as size 6 typically works across a variety of brands. I returned the 6 and ordered size 8. The hip area was looser but the thigh area, especially where the zip-off is is still skin tight. The material is definitely stretchy so the tightness is not uncomfortable but just strange that this aspect did not change when upgrading a size. Despite struggling to figure out sizing, I am impressed by the material, the softness, the soft waistband to prevent rub, the stretch and overall look of the pants.

Great in any weather

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wore my new Ferrosi convertible pants on a 12 mile hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. The morning started at around 72 degrees so I left them as pants and zipped off the legs after about an hour when the day started getting really warm. As we reached the summit a summer storm brought a 20+ degree temp drop and some serious rain. I zipped the pant legs back on and I was surprised at how water resistant they were. I didn't stay completely dry but after the storm passed, and the sun came out, everything dried out quickly and it was not uncomfortable or chafing while wet. Overall, the pants were great as shorts - lightweight, flexible and cool when the weather was hot, and also did well in the colder temperatures and rain - they didn't stick to my skin, chafe, or lose their shape. And a light rain wouldn't have soaked through the fabric at all.

Moves with me

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love these pants. They have just enough stretch for running, scrambling or just plain hiking. The fit was accurate.

Back to square 1 re: convertible hiking pants

I love the regular Ferrosi pants, but the convertible kind -- like most convertible pants -- left a lot to be desired. The zip hit at a weird spot so bending or squatting didn't feel great. I also have yet to find a pair of convertibles that a shorter inseam for the actual shorts. Some folks don't like Bermudas (then again, I'm 5'2"). Love the weight of the fabric and the fact that they come in short, but between the too-long rise at the waist and the zip issue, they just weren't for me.

Ferrosi Convertible Pants

Love them. Right fit, zipper is not intrusive and pants look good. Will probably purchase a few other colors.
