Lightweight, convertable pants.

This is a great lightweight pants. They weigh about 8oz (for a small), and double as shorts, and swimming trunks because of the mesh briefs.

For lightweight & Ultra Light Backpackers, this is the Bomb. You can eliminate the need for underwear due to the mesh briefs, Saving weight and bulk when ounces and grams count. Also they dry quickly due to the lightweight material. For the most part, mosquitoes can't get you through the pants, but if the material is stretched, they can get there needle through, but not after the tension is removed, just FYI.

It appears some people complain about the mesh briefs. At first I didn't like them. But grew to like them. The Mesh briefs eliminate the need for normal underwear, which is especially useful for long distance hiking/backpacking.

The Material is light, so not good for everything. But for long distance hiking, backpacking, breathabuiltity. this is now my chosen pants/shorts.
