Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I was leery about these pants. The reviews suggested that they might not hold up to even “normal” wear. Not the case. I wear them like work khakis, but do stress them a little more than casual slacks. I’ve worn them probably ten times, and washed and dried them three. They are up to the task.
They are a very light and airy alternative to shorts. The coolest long pants that I have on the shelf. The granite color is unlike anything else I own and goes with almost everything. The fit is as good as it gets for my bird legs. Not loose, not skinny. I’m pleased with the purchase.
The negatives: very shallow front pockets. All I put in them is a key-fob. The side drop-ins are decent. Hold my IPhone 7 in an OtterBox.
The other issue, which kind of comes with the territory with this material, is that they stain, and it sticks. Little bit of brake dust and grease and it looks like it’ll be there for the duration. Gives them character, though. I bought two more colors.
