These pants are a MUST-HAVE! They are the most multi-purpose pants I have ever owned. I wore them hiking all over the west and they were unbelievably comfortable, stretchable, and breathable. It was in the 80s and I was comfortable! I also wore them out at night for dinner with a nice pair of dress shoes and they looked like a beautiful pair of dress khakis. They have a really cool texture to them that the picture doesn't even really show. They sit nicely above the hips even while hiking--I HATE tugging up pants while hiking! I own them in all 3 colors. I would buy even more colors if they made them!
