Nicely Made, Features are a Matter of Build

These pants deserve a 5 star rating for materials and workmanship. Never have ventured into elastic in waistband before. Learned that it's not for me. As I am "shrinking" on a long strenuous hike the pants are "relaxing". That creates a little too much gap. The pants fit fine before hike and for an hour and a half into it. After that I am pulling them up to avoid mooning the person(s) behind me. Wouldn't be that big of a deal except that day pack or multi-day pack get in the way of the pulling up. Will be happy to wear these on short hikes or in town on warm days.
