I recently purchased these for an 8-day trip to AK. There was 3 days of backpacking and then several day-hikes. The fit was great and love the waistband. But on day 2 of backpacking I noticed the piling had started where my backpack hit my hips. By day 3 it was so noticeable that even my husband remarked on how bad the piling was for brand-new pants. I had read other reviews that talked about the piling and thus expected there would be some over a reasonable period of time. However, the second day of wear is a ridiculously short amount of time in my opinion. These are not exactly cheap pants and I certainly expected better of the Mountain Hardwear brand. Maybe if you are only hiking for shorter periods of time and/or don’t wear a pack they will stay nice looking but any kind of extensive wear is going to produce piling. I am thoroughly disappointed.
