I researched a lot of pants before purchasing these. I think they are very good quality and very well made. I am 5'4" and 117 lbs. Most walking pants are too long for me. I ordered these in a size 6, short and it is the right size and length. They are loose, but that is good for walking, plus they have the tie at the waist to tighten them. If they were about an inch longer, it would be perfect, but the regular length would be too long for me. They are fairly attractive on, as some of the other reviews mentioned. I wear them for walking pants or shorts and I particularly like the fact that they have enough pockets to put my keys, phone, and i.d. info. The fact that they are convertible is a big bonus. I wore them the other day and decided it was warm enough to wear shorts -- so I just unzipped the bottoms and off I went. As the other viewers said, these zippers are color coded so it is easier to put back together than the earlier styles. I got 2 pairs and am glad that I did!!

3 in 1
My hubby and I have recently been doing more hiking and backpacking and are planning a multi-day trip. I bought these pants because they are so versatile: pants, capris, or shorts. They zip to shorts easily with an extra small cord at the belt loops to hold them. The legs are color coded at the zipper for easy on and off. Plenty of easy to use pockets. I like the velcro pockets on the rear. There is also an internal drawstring at the waist, which I found helpful. I am between sizes in The North Face. A 10 is too tight in the thighs and a 12 is a bit loose in the waist. (Normally I am a size 10 in most pants.) Overall the 12 is the better choice for me. I gave the quality 4 out of 5 because the seams at the waist where it buttons scratch just the tiniest bit. Otherwise a perfect pant and I'll continue to enjoy using.

These pants are great and also protects against UV. The design is great, you just need one pair of pants for all of your activities throughout the day no matter how the weather changes. Fits small to size, i am usually a 4 but had to get a pair of 6s.
