Rated5out of5byfromGreat PantsGreat fit and good material. Pants do just what they are supposed to do.

Rated1out of5byfromElephant Legs!Bought these pants because my wife has the womens version and they fit her great.I knew the were big in the leg from trying them on but stupidly bought them anyway. The legs are about twice as big in circumference than required for the waist size. The excess material flaps in any sort of breeze and I actually peed on a protruding flap of leg when inattentive during a squatting bowel movement. It'd be great if you have HUGE legs.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat PurchaseGreat purchase. Was in need of a new pair of convertibles. Worn these on several day trips and several overnighters. Lightweight but tough, packable, easy on off legs, shorts are a great length. Don't think they're likely to wear out soon but if they did I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another pair.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat pantsGreat pants, love the no-sit zip feature. I've had other brands of convertible pants that I always had to take my boots off to remove the legs. These are very comfortable and light weight.

Rated2out of5byfromOdd cutThe crotch seemed to be too low limiting flexibility and the material made me sweaty...

Rated3out of5byfromBaggiesI ended up having to return these because I did not care for the fit. Not only are the 32in inseams really long (I am always a 32 and these had 3-4 inches dragging on the ground), but the legs are very baggy. I liked the length of the shorts and the no-sit zips worked well when tested at home. I can't fault REI for the constructions of the pants, the fit is just not for me. If I had a store near me, I would have figured this out no problem. But since I have to order online, it wasn't an option. Went with the Columbia Silver Ridge in a 32-32 and they fit as expected in waist and length. Legs are much more form fitting as well. A better fit for my taste.

Rated5out of5byfromConvertableHiking La Garita, morning was cold, zipped on the legs. As we hiked, got hot, zipped them off, then on again when it hailed. Legs come off and on quickly and easily without taking of your kiking boots.
