Great for Hiking

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mouse Mom from North Carolina on Thursday, May 28, 2015
These are advertised as climbing pants, but I am a not-so-young hiker (female, 72). I had a pair of these pants previously that finally have worn out after many hundreds of miles hiking in Europe and the U.S. - as well as birding all over the world. They have a cut that is loose in the legs and very comfortable for hiking. They dry overnight and therefore help make it possible to travel only with carry on. They are nice and cool in hot weather and still work in the cold with long underwear underneath or wind pants as an outside layer. My only suggestion is that it would be nice if they came sized for short people - I am 5'2". Few manufacturers take this into account, so we shorties are always having to get out the sewing basket.
