These pants at this weight are a hit. "Year round" if you're one of those who run a higher temperature than the rest. The fit is active but won't leave feeling outa place for a dinner or the pub after doing whatever you do. The fabric does stretch out after a few hours, size em tighter than you normally would especially in the waist. I've used mine backpacking in Holy Cross Wilderness, 14ners and fishing. Imagine I'll use them with a silk weight under for nordic skiing. As they become older and thrashed I'll use them for climbing.
I thrashed these the minute I got them. When I bought them I was scared that they would be super hot and not fit right but when I got them all fears subsided. I have longer legs than torso and they're kinda good for that. They almost fit like jeans or khakis except more comfortable. Gusseted crotch is a must for climbing for me. They shed water like a hard shell, it's amazing. Also quite packable, I'll take em backpacking. And a big reason I bought them was because I hate baggy zip off trekking pant. These actually look really good. They never snagged on granite and wicked sweat well. Comfortable, breathable, great fit, light, simple, and well thought out. What's not to love?

These are my go to comfy pants for morning walks with the pup, long days of travel by car, air or seas, and for touring around.. Great zip close pockets for all the important items. Super lightweight!
Took these pants up a 2-day trek up Mt. Shasta. Coupled with a a Capilene 3 baselayer, these kept me warm and relatively dry the entire weekend, very breathable, and survived a 4,000 ft. glissade without any damage.
