Nice features and fit very well

Looking for two pairs of convertible hiking pants for a two week trip this Summer. I bought a pair of these and a pair of these and a pair the Columbia Crested Buttes. Sent the Columbia pants back. Fit and pockets are much better on the WS pants, plus they have zippers legs to help slip them over shoes/boots. Also the L/R marking on the leg-zippers is more helpful than you might think. What clinched the deal for me was that the zippers zip back on over the front of your legs and not behind as on the Columbia Crested Butte pants. Can't speak to durability though; the Columbia pants appear to be made of rip-stop cloth and they seem a bit heavier and may be more durable. Maybe I'll post an update after wearing these pants for two weeks hiking in New Mexico.
