I'm an ED pharmacist and do a lot of walking, running, standing, and moving. I needed a new pair of work pants and the hospital doesn't condone my beloved cargo pants. I have had other dress type pants like Dockers but the lack of crotch-gusseting caused the "guillotine" effect on my man parts. Enter the "Griphoist" pants. Being evening shift and in the ED, I'm not in need of overly dressy looking pants, just perceivably professional and within dress-code. I respond to codes and many times have to run within a massive medical facility that may mean running up stairs. These have the range of motion that will let you move with speed without worrying about splitting when hitting stride. I was mainly attracted to these because they have that normal "chino/dress pant styling" that is less overt as say cargos or hiking pants would be. However, they have the functionality of the later and, my favorite, the gusseted crouch that doesn't cause discomfort when sitting. I can see myself wearing these anywhere and everywhere save for formal events. The internal zip pocket is nice to put items in that you don't need immediate access to and keeps the front pocket free for more immediate use items. Stain defense seems to holding, spilled some nasty drugs on them and they just bead off. Get and Enjoy.

Look and fit great
After ordering and wearing one pair, I decided to order two more pair (obviously) in different colors. The 34" inseams (closer to 34.5") fit well and leave room for a bit of shrinkage which is expected with any pair of pants. They're great looking and thus suitable for casual work wear. I now plan to place an order for the fourth and last (color) pair.

Just a hint off of perfect...
This is a nice looking and great wearing pair of pants. I like the zippered pocket on the right side, just behind the normal waist pocket... that lets you securely stash thigs like a large smartphone or a wallet, out of sight. That's a really handy feature. Material is nice - but somehow isn't deluxe. Fit is somewhere between fitted and loose - alowing good range of motion without being saggy. Leg is wide open to allow it to fit over even large hiking boots. Seems durable - and is very wearable. I think you'll also be pleased, but not quite blown away...

Pants look great and think I'll get a lot of use out of them. Good enough for running around town or hiking in the mountains, haven't given the stain resistance the test yet but kind of hoping I can avoid that.
