Awesome, Durable Pants
I purchased these convertible pants last year and have found them to be very durable. We have do a tone of hiking in all kinds of conditions and these pants have held up (even on the most rocky terrain). I purchased the Khaki and have had no trouble with keeping them free of stains. The only negative is that i have a small waistline and larger hips and find that the waist is a little big. I would highly reccomend. I love the so much that I am going to order a second pair.

Heavy duty hiking/climbing pant
These are a heavier material than the Yuma pant, so they work especially well in a colder/damp/rocky or brushy environment. They do run small though! So be sure and order a size up from what you usually wear in Mountain Hardwear (I am 5'2" 115lbs and got the 4 regular which fit great) I use them for hiking and backcountry climbing and am very satisfied with the performance and looks of these pants.

Run a bit long
Nice fit - actually fairly stylish. The shorts are more like pedal pushers, but very cute. These are the first pair of hiking pants I found that aren't so masculine. High quality craftsmanship and very comfortable. I am 5'4" and 110 lbs and took the recommendations of the others and ordered a size up. The 4 fits very well, however they are a bit long. I usually find that a petite or short length are too short, however with these pants, I think the short length would be much better - I may return them for the petite length.

Look more stylish than most hiking pants!
I tried on a few other pairs of convertible pants and they all looked like the designer had no concept of fashion. Just because you like to be athletic, doesn't mean you like to wear ugly clothes! These pants have more of a mid-rise and fit close to the leg, so they look more like pants you wouldn't mind being seen in. I was a little worried they'd feel too constricting for hiking/climbing, but they seemed to stretch a tiny bit and they felt fine for the hike I took them on - rated at a level 5 hike and 3 climb. They have a lot of nice, useful pockets, and a belt. The material is water-resistant, I walked past a lot of really wet bushes, and the water literally beaded right off. I liked these so much I got another pair in the dark brown. The length of the shorts is ok, although I'd prefer them about an inch or two shorter, but it's not a big deal. I usually wear a size 4 or 28 in jeans, and these I needed the 6, so I think they run a little small.

Comfortable, stylish and awesome fit!
I was unsure that a convertible pant is what I wanted. I do not plan on climbing any mountains or hiking any trails....but I am a teacher who plays at recess with the kids and gets down on the floor to teach reading groups every day. This pant is sporty casual, but appropriate for work. The gussets make it so mobile and comfortable! It is perfect design for those of us with athletic builds. I plan on ordering whatever colors I can find! Worth the $$$$ for sure!
