Medium weight nylon fabric. Well-designed. The four standard pockets have drains. In addition, one vertically zippered pocket, without drains, is located on the thigh. Given its location and small size, it is apparently intended for a phone.

    these pants have been redesigned by columbia sportswear the new owners of mountain hardware so that they are cheaper and can no longer be considered a backpacking pant. These have far thinner material making them tear very easily and unsuitable for outdoor use, and there is no longer a chamois-like lining on the inside. it is now nylon mesh like the lining of a windbreaker. maybe theses would make good pajamas,

    Ok, it's Mountain Hardware. The name alone says "quality". Like many others, however, I have ordered the rare pair of MH pants from STP that had to be returned for low cut waist, tight in the thighs or wrong size label in the back, but the Mesa Backpacking Pants are NOT this pair of pants. I enjoy wearing MH clothing, for it is almost always comfortable, stylish, well-fitting, well-made, durable and look great in the wilds of the Smoky Mountains or the wilds of singles bars at home. And this pair of pants fit that spectrum perfectly. These pants wash well, and after a shake out of the dryer are ready to wear. I have worn these often since they arrived from STP, and expect many years of service from them. As soon as STP gets more colors in my size, I will have to place another order to broaden my wardrobe, Excellent!

    Love these pants the fit me really well, I add a fleece base layer when it colder and I am fine. My only issue is I didn't not realize it until I got them home that the do not have belt loops, sure it comes with the thin nylon belt built in but I usual carry a belt knife and its a no go with these. Not a big issue because I bought two more pair after I received my first.

    I bought these to replace some older Mountain Hardware pants (which are about 6 or 7 years old.) I hike a lot in the desert and need tough pants. I was disappointed that these new pants do not have double knees, the self-belt rides up while the pants sag below it, and they are a bit short so they pull out of my short gaiters. They seem lighter and less durable. I am keeping them but also keeping my older, tougher and much patched originals.

About Mountain Hardwear

Starting back in 1993, a small group of outdoor industry mavericks broke away from the pack to follow a less-traveled path. From the very beginning, the primary goal of Mountain Hardwear was to create an outdoor gear brand with a sharp focus on technology-driven design, superior performance and hardcore reliability. The result of this function-first mentality has been an array of incredible Mountain Hardwear jackets, clothing, tents, backpacks, sleeping bags and accessories. Today, after more than two decades of industry-leading innovation, Mountain Hardwear continues to set new benchmarks for dependability in the toughest conditions on the planet.
