These are my favorite pants in the entire world. They fit like nothing else. I'm very tall so the fact that they come in a "long" is a dream made manifest into reality. Thank you, Prana! I own two sizes, both which fit. I wear the size 2 (even though this is the only brand I've ever owned a 2 in) for traveling and walking around Europe. The black is dark enough to pretend to be a little bit "dressier." Paired with a walking sandal, I feel like I don't embarrass myself at nice cafes. I like to do strenuous hiking in the size 4. They're looser on me, while still fitting very well. My only quibble with this pant is the drawstring. The string is on the inside of the waistband, so if you draw it tight to keep your pants near to the waist, the button part gaps a little. Still, it's a small issue. The fabric is wonderfully breathable and seems resistant to moisture. I used these pants to hike across Ireland and while they weren't water-proof, I never felt bothered by the rain. Everyone else is making that water-proof pant noise with their thighs, and I'm feeling light and silent. The pants dried in no time at all. I own six pairs.

These boots and me go way back. I've owned three pair of Vasque boots and my first pair would be considered ridiculously heavy in today's market. So when I went boot shopping for a new pair, I tried on every brand at a hiking retail store thinking that it was time to modernize. But lo and behold, this Vasque boot had me in its magic grip again. Vasque lightened up and changed the sole so that it's a lot more flexible. Everyone's feet are so different, but mine just love these boots. I've hiked Ireland, parts of the Sierras, and the peaks of Southern Cal in them. I also do one or two conditioning hikes a week and have occasionally switched to a lighter boot to give my feet a break from boots, but guess what? My feet do not feel as good in the lighter shoe.
