beware the Velcro

Verified Buyer Reviewed by a Christian from Culver City, CA on Thursday, August 18, 2016
This is the nylon hot pants (pants for hot weather) that cinches around your waist, and because of the thin material, basically hangs down over each leg like a small skirt (at least it feels that way, which is a good thing). It is generously cut (but in no way resembling parachute pants), allowing for bouldering and trekking without binding. One warning. If you wash the pants with the pocket flaps unsecured, the Velcro might find its way during the wash cycle to snag elsewhere - on a part of the pants that you don't want it to snag on. Then, when you pull the flap off, it causes a serious run in the fabric that is visible and is probably compromising the integrity of the pants. This happened to me, and I was pretty bent. But having washed it, I can't return it. This is a strong warning to buyers, to be careful when washing this. Otherwise, its my hot weather go-to pants.
