Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
I love these pants for many reasons. I destroy my cloths and have sat on lava rock and while they offer no padding, sliding around on that sharp (ouch!) stuff has not compromised the seat in any way! My keys can roll around in the side pocket when I wrestle with a dog on the ground and they don't fall out because of that wonderful, easy access flap. I liked the security of having it on the back (wallet) pocket as well and miss it in the new style, though I can't say anything has fallen out of the back pockets. They work great for this less hippy female body and I get lots of compliments. I WISH they didn't end up in the wrinkled mess no matter how carefully I wash and hang them. A different fabric might not do that but then, they might not be as light and airy to wear. Great in the summer (they roll up and stay as capris nicely)and I wear the same pair for everything, construction to bushwhacking. I am hard on my cloths and while they are perpetually wrinkled, they are no worse for the abuse I have put them through during the last few years and while I am not usually comfortable sleeping in pants, I have curled up in a bag and not even notice. They don't offer any insulation, but last fall I took two pairs backpacking and just put one pair over the other when it got cold and didn't have to fuss with removing long johns. I don't think I could have stood doing that with any other pants I have ever tried on.
PS. I refuse to iron outdoor cloths no matter how much I wish they looked neater. In my opinion, that is the only thing they could have done better.
