Versatile and great value

My first eval of a product for any site. These pants were a good buy - they are comfortable b/c the material is somewhat stretchy, and they dry fast.
Yes, they run a little long, but there is a chord on the bottom hem which you can cinch in around your ankle. This also ensures that they don't let in any cold air, or hike up on you when you pull on boots. I wore them all summer in Alaska doing fieldwork; I wore them under my overalls suit, so they were really nice and comfortable (no friction). Great for wearing around the house and in the garden. Easy to wash, colors don't seem to run either.
Minus: you have to be careful walking in woods with bramble b/c the material will snag. One of the vertical pant leg seams was not straightly vertical as the other leg seams were. These 2 things wouldn't deter me from buying another replacement pr when I wear our my current pair though.
