The description on these pants was right on. Good for warm days in backcountry or resort. They are totally light weight. Wouldn't use them on bad weather days or for anything where they might get ripped or damaged. Since they are light weight they don't feel like they can hold up to much (ie. trees, rocks, branches, extended use). But if you are looking for a light weight stylish pair of pants to add to your wardrobe, these are perfect. Don't get these if you are a looking for a one pair do all pant, you will need something more technical.
Cool and stylish, not bullet-proof.
