Hot days that start out cold; icy creeks to ford—the men's REI Co-op zip-off Sahara convertible pants take it all in stride. Just zip off the legs (you don't even have to sit down) and boom: shorts!


  • Made with stretch recycled nylon that's durable enough to handle hard-charging days on the trail and log-sitting nights around the campfire
  • Durable water repellent (DWR) coating sloughs off moisture while lightweight nylon dries fast if it does get wet
  • UPF 50+ sun protection
  • Low-bulk fabric with flatseam stitching not only prevents chafing, it also allows pants to pack down small
  • Color-coded thigh zippers help you determine the right leg from the left leg when converting the shorts back to pants
  • Vertical zippers from bottom hem to mid-thigh allow for more ventilation and also let you remove pant legs without removing your shoes or boots
  • Gusseted crotch and elastic back waistband allow you to move freely and comfortably
  • Zipper fly with button closure; belt loops add versatility
  • Loaded with 6 pockets for essentials, including front hand pockets, back pockets and cargo pockets (1 zippered)
  • Reinforced cuff backs stand up to abrasion from hiking boots
  • Note: actual pant inseam lengths are 1 inch shorter than indicated in sizes (e.g., size "32 IN Waist X 32 IN Inseam" has a 31" inseam)
  • 28 IN Inseam sizes convert to shorts with 8" inseam; 30 IN Inseam converts to 8.5" shorts; 32 IN Inseam converts to 9"; 34 IN Inseam converts to 9.5"; 36 IN converts to 10"
  • Machine wash cold; do not use bleach or fabric softeners; tumble dry low
  • Contains materials that meet the bluesign® criteria
  • REI is Climate Neutral Certified; as we work to actively reduce our footprint, we measure annual carbon emissions and purchase an equivalent amount of verified carbon credits

Sizing Notes

Measurements are stated in inches unless otherwise indicated.

SHORT: Some pants are available in short sizes, which generally means an inseam that is 2.5 inches shorter than regular sizes.

TALL: Some pants, shirts, jackets and parkas are available in tall sizes, which generally means an inseam that is 3 inches longer and a rise that is 1 inch longer, a shirt or jacket body that is 2 inches longer, a parka body that is 2.5 inches longer and sleeves that are 2.5 inches longer than regular sizes.

Capri or cropped pants have an intentionally shorter inseam—reference the technical specs instead of this chart.
