Rated 4 out of 5 by from No restriction in movement I've had these pants for about a year now and they're all I ever wear hiking. I'm a big fan of the stretchy material in the upper legs of the pants. Usually pants restrict my movement (especially on 3/4 scramble hikes) but these do not. The fabric repells water as advertised and drys very quickly after being submerged in water. I did rip a pen sized hole in the butt of the pants but that's only because I was sliding down some rough rocks in Glacier National Park. I don't think any pants would have come out in scathed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Snap fastener doesn't stay snapped These pants would be perfect if they had a button closure for the waist instead of the snap closure. The snap comes unsnapped very easily and usually at the most inopportune moments. I wouldn't dare wear these without a belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Pants for Hiking These are good pants to wear while hiking. They are comfortable and easy to move in!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waist Snap Button Doesn't Hold These would be excellent hiking pants if only the snap button on the waist band would hold. The weak snap fastener makes the rather odd waist adjustment strap fairly useless. It actually gets in the way of the belt that is needed to keep the keep the pants on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Snap Button is Crazy weak The specific button on these pants pops right open as soon as you tighten the belt and it drives insane so i have to leave it loose and wear a belt over it, But otherwise there pretty comf.

I have two pair of the "classic", and two pair of the pre-"classic" Sahara convertible pants. All are size "L 30" and fit very well. Now that you offer waist size in 2-inch increments, what is the nominal equivalent in the "re-designed" pants?

Asked by: freshman
If your pants are a size large, we recommend a size 36 waist in these pants.
