Purchased these pants after reading countless reviews with everyone giving these pants two thumbs up. I live in Florida, so I wanted a pant that I could wear year round here and also feel comfortable in the northern states. Coming from someone who almost always wears shorts, these are probably the most comfortable pair of pants I have ever worn. The material of the pant itself is very durable and won't tear when brushed against rocks and underbrush. I really liked the roll up pant snaps on each leg, though they don't roll up extremely uniformly. Finding myself almost always wearing them like this because for me the sizing seemed to run big. I am 5'11" and I usually wear a M short with about a 32" inseam. If you like a snugger fit, I would size down, at least in the waist as the short has a built in adjustment strap and they are super stretchy! All in all a great pant. I may buy another pair..smaller.
