The North Face Horizon Tempest Pants - Women's Shortis rated4.3333out of5by3.
Rated4out of5byfromMy go-to adventure pantsI love these pants. They protected me against forests of poison oak while backpacking in Big Sur and gritty abrasions when topping out in proper beach whale style at the crags. The material definitely holds up really well and dries quickly. The only pet peeve is that sometimes when my legs get sweaty, I'll have to pull the pants up as they don't slide up as well.

Rated4out of5byfromAlmostPurchased for hiking in the heat. They are lightweight and durable. The only drawback is its lack of stretch. They would not be comfortable for a plane ride nor for rock climbing. If I had to climb or take large steps the material would limit movement. In terms of fit I am 100lbs with a 28" inseam. They were relaxed fit without looking unflattering and didn't hit the ground with hiking shoes on.

Rated5out of5byfromVersatile, Comfortable PantThese pants rock. Bought them over two years ago, worn them on dozens of hikes. Extremely comfortable. I've lost 30 lbs since I first bought them, but the drawstring allows me to still wear them and I love the extra roominess of the hip/thighs. Haven't got them wet too often, but they've dried quickly when I did. Love that you can button up the sides to turn them into capris if you get too hot while hiking. Very lightweight, very breathable. I like to tuck my lip balm into the little zipped pocket while hiking for easy access. Have also worn them while helping a friend load her moving truck in a snowstorm--stayed plenty warm and dry while being able to squat comfortably.
