Great if you like to travel light

I haven't used these yet, but I got them for an upcoming European trip. They fold up extremely small and are very light. They are made of a sort of "parachute" material. They close at the waste with a button, not a snap. I like this because I have a different brand with a snap and it constantly pops open. The fit is true to size. I am 5'8" 205 pounds and the 38 waste fits me. The 30 inseam is also correct. One negative is that the pants legs do not have a zipper to facilitate removing without taking your shoes off. I will not deduct a star for this. They look like they would dry very quickly, and the shorts could even be used for swimming, in a pinch. These will be great for a trip that involves a lot of hiking, or where it may be cool in the morning and then get hot later on in the day. The pants legs will fold up extremely small and can be put into a backpack or fanny pack. I also like the zipper pocket for keeping important stuff protected from pickpockets. I am happy with Sierra Trading Post. The delivery was fast. I hope these pants live up to my expectations when I go on my trip in a few months.
