I ordered these pants as work pants on the farm, so I could un-zip the pant legs off for shorts when it hot out. When I got them I liked them, they were made from very thin material that you could also see-through, but they were very stretchable.
I used them the first time when I shingled a roof. The first thing I noticed is that as I bent over and picked up a bundle of shingles, I could hear seams ripping or thread popping. I did snag the seat of the pants on a nail and it ripped. I stitched it back up and thought it all was good. The next day, the first time I bent over the area around my repair ripped. I still give the pants 5 stars as I probably would have had the same issues with any other pair of pants, (shingling is tough on pants and shoes) but at least these were lightweight and comfortable. I have another pair I purchased that will not be used as rough as the first pair. Overall I am very happy with what I got with the price I paid.
The convertible pants are ideal for deep sea fishing, they dry quickly & clean up nice. The shorts are just the right length for me.
I work in many remote environments.
Light weight is a plus, and keeps cool, even when left as long pants.
I wouldn't consider them water resistant, but if they get wet, they dry very quickly.
Comfortable. The included belt is nylon and plastic so you don't have to take it off going through airport security! Shorts zip off easily and can fit in cargo pocket.
Fits as expected, light-weight, nice looking, well pocketed. I like the belt. I plan on using these for hiking. But, I think they will be good around town too.
