Great for traveling on the surface. Have even taken them underground a few times on short trips and they have returned unharmed from the unforgiving cave environment.

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jakatannel from Nashville on Tuesday, September 23, 2014
    Ok, I love Mountain Hardware. Ttheir reputation of making quality outdoor clothing and equipment is solid and competitive with any other company making similar products. After gaining a pound or two and an inch or two after retiring from a 30+ year career in the military, I needed some new pants to wear traveling, now for fun and not for work. I am not a big fan of convertible pants, because I never wear shorts, but since STP did not have my larger size in the regular MH Mesa pants, I bought 2 pair of these. These are definitely "a keeper", and I will wear them for some time to come, but with some detractors. The overall fit, especially the waist, is just a touch smaller than that in similar pants from competitive companies making them a little less comfortable for those of us in the latter half of our lives and who have enjoyed a little too much career success. Additionally, the top of the front pockets are cut horizontally and close to the belt line. This makes it difficult to reach into them as the angle is wrong, and causes the opening to be a bit tight to allow easy access. Also, I do not like a built in belt as these pants have. It seems every time you wash them the belt gets twisted, and then it is a pain to push, pull, stretch and cuss to get the belt straight again. Also, the belt is only 1" webbing, and when tightened do not hold up the pants well. Unfortunately, you cannot remove the belt, because MH did not include belt loops around the waist to hold a regular belt. Overall, good quality pants, but there are some detractors that keep these from being 5-star.

    Very comfortable and fit well. I haven't worn while hikibg yet, hopefully this weekend.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mission Worker from Indiana/Mexico on Monday, July 28, 2014
    I purchased these pants as a way to minimize the amount of clothing required for a mission trip in Mexico. They served the purpose well providing warmth and a wind break for the evenings and mornings and the ability to convert to shorts during the heat of the day. The material of these pants might be a little heavier than the similar White Sierra Trail pants (which I liked) but they are more expensive.

    The built-in belt would probably work well in most circumstances but anything heavy in the pockets and there was a tendency to slip.

    These are great pants, but I would probably never use them as shorts (they would probably be considered more like a Capri then a short since the inseam is redicuously long), but they are fantastic pants.

    My husband did not like the "feminine" straight vertical front pockets. He felt they were a feminine cut, and prefers the more common side slash pocket design. We sent them back for this reason alone.,
