These are good casual-wear pants that seem durable for active outdoor use. However, I wish I would have gotten a size larger in the waist because these fit too tightly in the thigh and butt. I have prAna's Bronson and Saxon pants in 34 waist, which both fit me well. The Bronson are a bit tighter, but they are made with some spandex, so they don't feel as tight as they actually are. I think these are made with a similar pattern, but in 100% cotton without the give the spandex provides, they might be just a little too tight--especially if they end up shrinking at all in the laundry (which I do not yet know).
These color is accurately described as Auburn, but the photo representation is muted. Auburn is an orange-brown color, and I think the photo does not depict the orange component of the color. If you imagine a cross between the photo pants' color and the color of the stars used in STP's ratings, that is how the pants appear.

Don't let the Corduroy in the title distract you from the comfort of these pants. The only corduroy aspect I noticed was a slight cross-hatch pattern on the pants that enhances the appearance. I cannot attest to the durability yet. The design of the pants seems to have accounted for any stress or rubbing points. Stitching appears to be durable. And the gusset definitely helps avoid any undue discomfort when sitting or crouching. If you work in a casual office, these would work well. Not quite as dressy as the traditional khakis. The material is more lightweight then other cotton based hiking pants by other big name companies. Small touches (extra material at the heel, triple-stitch seam at the pockets), excellent fit, make these pants another great offering from PrAna. For fit, these run a little short on the inseam, which I liked. Wearing a 30" inseam is often just a bit too long, these fit great. For the waist sizing, for me, these run true to size. Some PrAna products feel too small in the waist and overly long on the inseam. These do not. After wearing these on multiple site visits in mountain rural communities, getting in/out of the car, I am ordering a second pair. They are that comfortable.
