    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST have for hiking Bought these pants to wear for my three day Inca Trail hike in Machu Picchu, Peru, this winter during the rainy season. I ended up wearing them all three days! Very comfortable, breathable and durable. And I ended up getting many compliments on how stylish and good they looked -although that isn't why I bought them. My favorite qualities were when we were hiking at it was 80 degrees, they were 100% breathable and I never got sweaty. Then when it started POURING rain and I didn't have time to get my rain pants back out, the front of these pants got soaked. BUT, within literally half an hour of no rain, they were completely dry. Completely. Impressive.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost! These are the most flattering outdoorsy pants I've ever put on...except that the claimed 33" inseam isn't accurate. I ordered online and when I received the pants, the inseam was more like 30.5". I'm 5'10" and this makes them pretty much unwearable for me! There's not enough fabric at the bottom hem to get any significant additional length out of them, either. I'm so bummed. They're going back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect travel pants I bought these pants for a trip to Cabo. I always look for versatility in my travel wear and that's exactly what convertible pants are. First off I love the fit of these pants, I am 5'6" mature but slender female, I got a size 4 in the grey and they fit me perfectly. I wore these on the plane and found they have enough pockets for stuff without being bulky, my phone fits perfectly and is secure in the side leg pocket. They stretched just enough to be comfortable and still looked great after 12 hours of flights. Like others I found the length of the shorts portion to be a bit long, but I just roll up the legs and they worked out. During a boat trip I found out that the are also slightly water resistant(water splashes could be brushed off before they soaked in) And after a more through splashing, I was thankful that they also dry quickly. Even after the trip I'm finding that these are quickly becoming my "go to" pants, especially for weekend wear. All and all I like these pants so much that I'm plan to get them in the black too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit I haven't put these pants to the test yet, but I'm planning on taking them hiking/climbing out west this summer. I love the fit. I'm 5'8" about 140 lbs. and I bought the size 8 regulars and the length is perfect. They fit just tight enough to where I don't feel like I have excess bagginess but they're not too tight to where I don't feel like I can't move. They're very stylish and durable. It seems like style goes out the window when it comes to women's outdoorsy clothing, but not with these pants.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit These pants are perfect for backpacking because they can sit below your hips and aren't under your hip belt with your backpack on. The only negative is when they are converted to "capri's", they are a bit long for my taste; I prefer at or above the knee. Would be perfect if they were shorts. These were the only convertable pants that fit like a glove and don't make my legs look like huge tree trunks! The pants are actually fitted. Also if you are kneeling, the zipper isn't right on your knee. Perfect!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful pants I wore these pants on a trip to Africa that included hiking Kilimanjaro and a safari. I only brought two pairs of pants on the trip and this was one of them. The capri length zip off was perfect. It was cooler but still conservative. The pants didn't show too much dirt in the serengeti when red clay dust was EVERYWHERE. I thought the pants looked great even after days without washing them. The only negaitve I would give them is after about 2 wears without washing, they waist got noticably stretched. They have a drawstring in them to tie them tighter but it made the pants gap at the front/back. I bought these pants because my sister had a pair and loved them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pants I don't know how people have negative things to say about these pants. I love them. I am 5'10" and the regular is long enough so maybe if you are shorter than that order a short size I'm not sure, but some reviews said that they were too long. I have been looking for a good pair of hiking pants that didn't fit like a trash bag for years...enter these pants. They are comfortable, functional and make my butt look good the zip off is just below the knee more of a Capri than shorts. I have been wearing these around town as an alternative to jeans because they are that stylish. It's a a pretty durable fabric and I can't wait to get out side with them when it gets a little warmer. These pants are the "Cadillac" of womens hiking pants you get what you pay for and these are worth it. I have grey and I will be getting black as well. I have nothing bad to say about these pants. If you are thinking of getting them..then you should.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from hiking pants that fit! Pros: -fit! I am always on the hunt for durable field pants that fit my petite frame, and these are my first pair to really fit! Most convertible pants just look like they are falling off me, but these fit more like regular pants. I have to tie the drawstring tight, so there's a gap between the tie and the button, but compared to all-around too big, it's much better. (For reference, I'm 5'3" and ~105lb, and bought size 0 regular.) -retain shape well with repeated use -hold up to standard field abuses: dust, mud, rain, scrambling on rocks Cons: -the converted length does hit right at the knee, as other reviewers mentioned, which is a bit odd. I normally wear the pants full length, unless I'm wading in water, in which case at-the-knee works well. - these pants get stinky after a week of heavy use in warm weather For me, pros outweigh the cons. These are my go-to fieldwork pants!
