Hiking Pants that are okay

Verified Buyer Reviewed by On a Budget from Maryland on Sunday, April 13, 2014
These pants are the closest I could find that fit me in my quest for decent hiking pants.

The good:
Light weight
Stretchable material
Easy to clean
Fitted/slimming look
Can roll up from the bottom for capris and maybe even shorts when it gets hot
Adjustable waistband
Blue/gray color
Long length (35" inseam) which is great if you're tall or short because you can easily hem them. Too many manufactures haven't gotten this point and make their pants with antiquated 32" inseams while more women have gotten taller in the past two generations.

The not-so-good:
Lower than I'd like waist (Not Your Daughter's Jeans hits right below the belly button which is the sweet spot for comfort). These pants hit about 1 1/2 - 2" below the belly button.
Limited color choices (no light gray, purple, pink, etc.)
Still look like hiking pants, but better than many others that scream hiking pants. Can someone please design hiking pants that can go from the trail to the city?
The thigh area could use an extra 1/2" around for a bit more comfort (and my legs aren't fat)

These pants will do for now, but my search continues...

I do want to give a shout out to Sierra Trading Post which offered a decent price, delivered the pants quickly and made it easy for me to exchange a pair that was defective. Thank you!
