Just as strong, durable, insect and sun repellent as our Cargos, but with around 25% less baggage.

I ordered a pair. Wanted to order more, but the comments on sizing, which seemed kind of random, scared me off. And I forgot to use the free shipping code.

Look like a great deal. I actually own a pair of the Bear Grylls pants and I think they are great - I've had good luck with the Nosilife and they are incredibly comfortable and they've quickly become my favorite outdoors pants.

I haven't really had a chance to test out their durability but Craghoppers has a good reputation and the Lifetime Guarantee is pretty awesome.

Edit: Also, the sizing (these were for the Bear Grylls edition). It seems to run a bit small. I'm a size 30-31 (typically 31) and I got the 32 inch waist pants and they are tight on me. There is approximately zero extra space on me but they are still remarkable comfortable.

I was reading the reviews. Seems like some run small, some run big. I ordered some rain pants on sale too.

Ordered two pair for that price in one size larger. We shall see.
Crap, forgot to order the rain pants and can't use the code twice for the discount on shipping.

not sure on the "trousers", but the nosilife cargo pants definitely run small- I ordered a size up (32" waist- ordered 34") and the pants were too small- fit was OK in the waist (has elastic) but overall the pants were simply too small overall- had a hard time lifting my knee very high

the main pockets were also not very deep, the material felt nice and the cargo version has lots of pockets

had to send mine back :(

I actually like mine :) on 08/07/2011 23:50:56 MDT Print View

Well, for $15 I'm quite happy with these. They aren't Arcteryx or MH quality, but they certainly are great bang for the buck.
They are stretchy around the waist which is nice. Fit is tailored toward thinner people, so a little tight in my case but still okay. They are light and squish up very small.

These are great day hike pants. Though I'd be hesitant to trust them on an extended backpacking trip. Not because the fabric feels week, but because they were $15. :)

They ride up the crack a bit for me.

Just got mine, ordered 2 pairs. I'm a 32 waist, ordered both as 32, and they fit fine with some room to spare. A couple stray strands here and there, but at 15 bucks a piece, I'm not complaining. Weighed both, 9.9 oz and 10.1 oz with tags. Fit is perfect, similar to my Columbia cotton/nylon pants but slightly slimmer. I'll need to shorten the inseam though, regular was a bit too long but they didn't have the short inseams on sale. Pockets are deep enough for me, they fit my hands a little past my wrist.

I'll be using them for trail maintenance on the PCT up by Tahoe, so I'll comment on the durability when I get back. Might order a couple more pairs.

Mine fit and are light! on 08/09/2011 20:43:34 MDT Print View

I ordered 2 x 34in pants.

I removed the sales tags and they weigh 264g/9.31oz.

Oddly enough they weigh the exact same as the EMS pants I hacked up here:
http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/forums/thread_display.html?forum_thread_id=49558

So with no mods to the pants, they are starting as light as my hacked up ones! :o

I'm looking forward to removing the rear pockets and little things here and there. We'll see how light they go.

FWIW, I'm 5-9 and 195lbs. They fit just fine.

I got mine today and couldn't be happier. Glad that I turned everyone on to this $15 deal!

I am a 34/36 waist and the 36 fit perfect. Length is perfect for me at 6'0. Articulated knees, bug treatment, and they are light and not over-built with baggy pockets. love the zip in hand pocket.

AMAZING DEAL imho for a pair of UL hiking pants. obviously these are not $15 climbing pants.

i like the euro styling, ie the shortened crotch area. works for me.

Am I the only one where it tends to ride in the butt crack?

Thanks Adam for the heads up, saved me over $20 bucks (was about to buy a pair of REI or Columbia pants) and I ended up 2 pairs instead of 1.

I haven't had a chance to hike in them yet so no comments on riding up the crack, but they seemed fine just trying them on.

"Am I the only one where it tends to ride in the butt crack?"

No, I get the same "lowrider" fit too. Without a gusset, I suspect the crotch will quickly split during climbing.
