Great pair of pants
I just got into hiking last year and decided that I wanted a pair of convertible pants (shorts for when hiking up a mountain and pants for when I reach the top where it is cooler). After searching around, I found these, so I bought two (size 8 and 10). I am 5'8", 155 lbs, and have a 32" inseam. The size 8s fit a little snug, especially around my rear (I'm athletic and a little curvy). But the 10s fit me nearly perfect. Not too tight and not too loose. I love that the pant legs, which can be removed, have a zipper on the bottom so that you can put them back on without having to take your shoes off. I haven't used them for hiking just yet, but I have worn them multiple times and they have served me well. I would definitely buy more... if they were cheaper. =)

I was pleasantly surprised when I took these pants out of the box and put them on. They are long enough (I buy a 33" inseam jean. The info says they are 32", but I think my pair was longer than that) and the cut is very comfortable and stylish. I was expecting to sacrifice fashion for practicality when I went looking for a pair of pants, but these pants fit like an ordinary pair of khakis or maybe wide leg jeans. They're fitted in the waist and hip,but wide enough in the leg that they don't cling. They're roomy enough for lots of movement. The legs are easy enough to zip on and off, and the venting is hidden from view which is good because of where it's located.

I ordered two brands NF and Columbia. The NF was an overall bad fit and Columbia was the exact opposite. Though the waist is a couple inches big the pants feels great on my skin and was very comfortable. i will just have the waist tailored for future wear.

Material is comfortable and light. I like the convertible to shorts feature. Fits true to size. Rise is a little higher than I'd like, other than that they're perfect.

Great pair of hiking pants, very flattering if you are curvy. Lightweight and quick dry. Seem to be true to size fit. Nice material and plenty of pockets. Lower half zip off to use as shorts.
