Ordered these in search for a replacement for my favorite Mountain Hardware pants. But the fabric was thin, clingy and I'm not a fan of draw string waist. Ordered instead the MH Ramesa pant. Much better fabric and fit.

I bought this style in capris, and loved it so well that I bought the shorts, too! Then, when the pants version came to STP, I knew they were destined to be mine. The fabric is stretchy, great for hiking, soft for comfort...all around fantastic.

I was looking for a replacement for my old Nike travel pant, that were discontinued - something that is light, flattering, comfortable, and highly packable. I usually have problems with fit because of straight hips - nowdays, everything seems to be made for curvy figures.
These Mountain Hardwear pants are exactly what I was looking for. Seem to have generous cut, so ordering one size down worked for me.
Fit is straight through the hips, and snag on the rear. There is a drawstring on the waist.
Fabric is thin and light but dense, stretchy and durable. Hope they serve me well and last for a while. Thanks again, STP! .

The pants I received have different pockets than what is pictured here. They have one flat zip size pocket on the right leg and low/mid thigh. They actually look better than the ones pictured because the pocket lies flat and does not ruin the line of the leg. The fabric is incredibly stretchy without looking loose or being baggy. They are cut low in the waist. Even though there is a drawstring, they lie smoothly at the waist and don't bunch or look bulky. The back pockets lie flat. The fabric is thin and lightweight making them good for travel. I see no reason why you could not wear them anyplace where you can wear slacks. I plan on wearing them regularly for every activity from the office to hiking. I'm ordering the shorts and capris. I wish they came in a wider range of colors.

These pants are a cross between yoga pants material and performance fabric, with pockets and a faux fly (the fly here has a gusset behind it, and closes with velcro). The combo makes for cute, comfy travel pants. The back pockets have a slight flap over the top which prevents things from falling out, and there's a zipper pocket on the right leg, in addition to the shirred front pockets.
Hikers? I wouldn't think so - the fabric seems too soft and potentially snaggable for that - nor are these any good for yoga or related exercises either, what with the pocket details. But they'll make great travel pants, stretchy, non-binding and non-wrinkling. They're very flattering in the derriere and legs, close-fitting but not quite so second-skin as yoga pants, and are true to size and length; their size 8 fits my size 8 behind perfectly.
