These pants just plain rock! Solid performance on tough movie film sets while wearing a Steadicam, which adds up to 85 pounds to my body, means this design and execution was just right.

Comfortable and Utilitarian
I am 6' 1" tall and weigh 170 pounds. I bought medium size and they fit me perfectly. The pants are very lightweight. The Mountain Hardware inside lined waist is a nice touch and makes the pants very comfortable to wear. I have not had them long enough to judge durability. Overall am happy with this purchase and will buy additional pairs when needed.

I haven't worn these on the trail yet but they're nicely detailed, typical of MHW clothing lines (articulated knees, built-in belt, etc). My long-time favorite for general travel is still the Canyon pants for its utility, comfort and clean lines but this pair would definitely serve better for backpacking with its waist area lined with micro-Chammy and cargo pockets placed to accommodate pack belts. Made from the same Canyon cloth, it's quick drying and also suitable for hot climates. As far as durability, they probably won't match the old Pack pants and its heavier fabric; but I also have Canyon pants that are more than 5 years old. I expect these to perform similarly.

These pants are quality, did not stretch out, and stayed in place during hiking with a backpack. The fit is true to size and the waist band is soft, comfortable, and does not rub. I also liked the slim pockets on the new model of the Mesa pant, in contrast to baggy pockets in previous models.

This pants is true to it's size & dries up quickly. But there's no zipper on the side(ankle portion), not like in the picture shown in this site. Overall, it's really a NICE pair of hiking/travelling pants.
