Just purchased another pair on Altrec
Excellent pair of pants. I purchased a pair of Pine colored Granite Creek pants last October to wear during a week long mountaineering course in Colorado and couldn't believe how well they fit no matter the obstacle! For beginner's level rock climbing these pants stretched just enough in the right places and didn't bunch in the places that cause a man pain. For the mountaineering they worked just as well, wicking the moisture caused by long uphill switchbacks they were occasionally in several feet of snow. Wouldn't recommend for winter weather, but for cool fall days they were awesome.

These pants are exceptionally comfortable and durable. The best part is the softness of the heavyweight nylon, making them as comfortable as cotton, in addition to being sturdier than most other hiking pants. The fit feels (and looks) great, offering just enough room for unrestricted movement without being too baggy. My waist is right around 32", and they fit exactly, however the pants didn't have much give to them (because of the reinforced waistband), so I got the 33" for some extra room.

This was a great purchase. I used them hiking/camping and worked well. The only negative I had is that the pants seem to get a little baggy the more I hiked. The held up well after a long weekend. I was very impressed with the warmth these pants provided at night but how cool they kept me during the day when it was a little warmer.

Great Hiking and climbing pants!
I have bought 2 pairs of theses pants thus far. They are obviously well made, comfortable and durable. The zippered pockets are perfect for keeping valuables safe while crossing rough terrain. I am about to buy a third pair,

Awesome pants, exactly what I was searching for!!
I was looking for a pair of non-convertible backpacking pants to replace some old North Face convertibles that I've worn on many trips. These pants are great! Comfortable & roomy enough, but, not overly baggy and cumbersome. The material is soft but doesn't appear to be fragile. I can't wait to get them on the trails for a true test. I don't have any worries that they can perform though.
