David S.wrote a review of Norrona Bitihorn Flex1 Zip-Off Pant - Men's on June 27, 2019
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
The first time I thru hiked the LT I used an old pair of Mountain Hardware zip off pants which were really convenient if not a bit nerdy looking. Since then I generally wear shorts or pants but have not used zip-offs. I'm pretty thin and wear small from most makers and these in size small fit me well. These are very nicely made pants. They look pretty nice too though that's not that much of a consideration when I'm backpacking. My main problem is that they weren't very comfortable. The zipper around the thigh that allows the legs to zip off had no fabric between it and your skin so they rubbed uncomfortably. They also lack normal side pockets that you can put your hands in which is a bummer if you want to warm up your hands or just have something easily accessible without unzipping a zipper. The velcro adjustment was kind of good but bulky. For me they had far too many zippers and snaps. I like well designed functional gear that has just what's needed and not much else. These had much else...
Bottom line, though, was that the lack of comfort had me send them back. If you're hiking 15 miles you can't have zippers or seams in the wrong places.
