good deal on good pants

I wanted to try a pair of nylon quick dry pants, but didn't want zip off legs. I have several pair of these pants now and am very happy with them overall. In summer, they are lightweight and dry very fast. I like long pants to fend off bugs, brush, and sun in canoe country, but don't want to slog around in wet pants after every portage. They're usually dry in a few minutes. I wondered about durability when I bought the first pair, but they handle abrasion from rocks and briars pretty well, much better than I thought they would. As long as I'm active in the wintertime, I can get by with a baselayer underneath. I have had to repair a couple crotch seams, but I've had this problem with other pants, too. At least with these pants it was the seam that came apart (easily repairable) and not the fabric itself. I think the first pair is now three years old and they get used pretty hard. They are nice looking pants (think khakis) and I used to feel a little guilty about wearing them camping, hiking, farm chores, etc. I finally got another pair to keep clean for 'going to town'. I will buy more of these pants.
