This is my second pair of these pants, so clearly I like them. The pockets are lovely and having an easy way to carry some things frontside, especially a guide book, is really helpful when carrying a backpack. The newest version I just bought has a change I'm not happy with though. The last pair had a wonderful small pocket that had velcro closure and was just perfect for holding chapstick and some change. Now there is just a small pocket at the waist(like the little one you get in bluejeans) which is not sealable and is shorter than the original. I am NOT HAPPY about this! These pants are loose, not close fitted. I'm a pretty standard size 10 and should have gotten an 8. But they are lightweight and very comfortable for hiking in the heat of summer. I've worn the first pair on 2 three month jaunts hiking a total of more than 1000 miles, washing them out in sinks and hanging to dry. They still look good, but the zipper finally gave out. I'll replace it so I can still keep using the first pair a bit longer and have that great little pocket.
