REI Sahara Convertible Pants - Boys'is rated4.5714out of5by14.
Rated3out of5byfromGood but showed wear/tear too earlyThese pants were purchased for my teenage son. He loves them. He wore them to camp in the west and northeast. There were two problems: the pants tore easily around the knee and thigh, and the seams connecting the shorts to pants came apart. REI replaced it right away. While my son is active, the pants should have performed better as this was their intended use.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat caqmping pants for our boysPurchased these for our two boys for their Boy Scouts camping trips. They both like them and say they're comfortable. They have gone camping a few times each and the pants seem to hold up well. (no holes or tears)

Rated5out of5byfromThe Kid likes his pantsFor buying any kids clothing the primary debate point is how much they cost vs. how much they'll wear them. I'm very happy that the boy likes these pants and wears them regularly. I got them to go with his scout uniform, they were a need, but so often those needed purchases are rarely used and seem like a waste. But he likes them, and wears them long and short. As a bonus, they fit well and look good and his mother was happy with my ability to buy the kid some pants.

Rated5out of5byfromDries fastI bought these for my teenaged son for a summer of camping and canoeing. He was most impressed with how fast these dry even when it is cold and wet out. His outdoors experiences in these pants included the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters.

Rated5out of5byfromPerfect for backpacking!Bought these for my son to wear on a 6 day backpacking trip in Sespe. He wore them everyday and they were perfect for protecting from poison oak while backpacking and then a quick transition once they arrived at their destination for the day. Super comfortable and look great too. Highly recommend for kids and young adults.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat for all year,I've been buying this for our little guy since he was 2 yrs old. He's had at least 5 pairs so far and each one held up beautifully despite regular wear all year round. They are rather expensive compared to most children's clothing but their dual functionality makes them worth it. I've found them to be most useful during the spring and fall when the day is hot but the evenings are cool. Just zip off the bottoms during the day when he's hot and zip them back on when it is getting cold. Needless to say, these are priceless when travelling.

Rated4out of5byfromVersatileGot these for a 6yo. He digs them. As pants, they offer protection from thorns, the sun, and poison ivy. As shorts, they keep him cool and dry fast after boating.
