The North Face Men's Paramount Valley Convertible Pants

Set out on an early morning hike through the Costa Rican cloud forest with your binoculars and see what you can find while the cold morning mist dampens the usual ruckus in the trees. You're wearing The North Face Men's Paramount Valley Convertible Pants so you'll have fast-drying, breathable comfort to cover your legs and the option of removing the color-coded zip-off legs for a pair of 8-inch shorts if the clouds burn off. Treated with a DWR finish that causes moisture to bead up on the surface, you glide comfortably past wet brush as you spot an elusive quetzal you want to get a little closer to. The gusseted crotch gives you the mobility you need to crawl over logs and scramble up steep, rocky trails and the TEX40 thread, double-needle stitching and bartacks throughout make them last through multiple trips. After a good scrubbing with the rest of your sink laundry, The North Face Paramount Valley Convertible Pants for men will be dry and ready to wear out for a nourishing meal of Arroz con Pollo with the locals.

Men's Paramount Valley Convertible Pants
I have three sets of these pants in different colors. I also have one set of the previous older version. The pockets on the this version are much better as the old previous version the front pockets went all the way down to my knees so I would have to really grab low to get things out of my pocket and they would be so low that they would interfere with walking slightly. These versions corrected that as the pockets don't go down as deep to your knees. I wear these in the summer and winter. I also use them for Kayaking and they keep me pretty dry. They are very comfortable and taking off the pant legs when it gets hotter is very easy. Also the color coding makes putting them back on not a guess. I like wearing these to the airport when I fly also because they don't have a metal belt buckle and you don't have to take off the plastic belt because it is non removable. It also provides plenty of pockets for whatever I need to carry. Also wearing them as pants from NY and converting to shorts when arriving in FL is very convenient. Overall I am very happy with these pants and hope they last me a long time. My other pairs are over a year old and have no wear on them.

Great buy
This product is perfect for hiking. The pants are quite comfortable. I wore them on a hike through the mountains of Nepal and they maintain very well. They also dry very quickly which comes in handy when it is necessary to wash them outdoors. I would definitely recommend these pants!

Great Pants
I love them, very light weight, comfortable, and easy to clean! I love the fact you can turn them into shorts very easily. I use these pants for every day wear and I'd say the fabric is pretty tough.

Very Nice !
Recently had the opportunity to try this out in the rain to see just how water resistant it was going to be and suprisingly it held up rather well.In light to moderate rainfall and depending on how long the rain lasts while you are outdoors it will hold up with no problems, but in a heavy downpour it's about 95% effective which is not bad because I didn't think it would be able to take it. The drawcord is very convenient to eliminate the need for a belt and the medium size I purchased for a 32" waist was a bit roomy but not by much thanks to the drawcord.It fits perfectly and very comfortable. The right zipper pocket could have been a bit more roomy and including zippers in all pockets would have been nice to ensure contents are totally secure, but no big deal I still thing this was a worth while investment.

An excellent purchase. I'd tried the garment at a "brick & mortar" store, so I knew which size I needed, then it came down to pricing. Altrec had the best price. Do your homework, investigate what you want, THEN go to Altrec - I have always found great deals here. Happy Hiking!
