Take a break from the ripped-up jean and dollar pizza slice dinner combo, throw on the Patagonia Men's Regular Fit Back Step Pants, and go have a meal with other people while looking like an upstanding member of society. Crafted from an airy cotton and hemp blended fabric, these chino-style slacks have two front pockets, a zippered fly, and straight leg cut to keep you looking sharp.

What isn't mentioned in the product description here, nor in other customer reviews, is the fact that these pants are thin, air-permeable, and hence extremely breathable. The fact that the material is 55% hemp should be a clue, but I'll be Captain Obvious for y'all.
They are terrific warm-to-hot-weather pants. They actually felt very similar to a thin, partially-permeable windbreaker like the Arc'teryx Squamish, but obviously in a natural, non-technical fabric. They would seem to be too cool for seasons other than summer and its shoulder seasons.
They are cut like normal casual pants, and won't impede normal activities (i.e. not yoga) if you size them correctly.
I like them a lot, and would pick up another pair if I could find another pair in my size in a different color than what I already have (for variety).
Too narrow through the legs

Bummed to get these on and discover that they're pretty tapered. Good for at the waist and a good length, but way too tight to do anything remotely active in, even just walk around. They appear to be a well-made pant, if a bit thin, material-wise (which may be why they are on sale in the winter).
Not just for the Back Step

I love these pants and wear them everywhere. They are really light weight and comfortable. They have also been a lot more durable then my initial impression which is a huge plus.
