I love everything about these pants! They are so light it literally feels like I'm not wearing anything. My size large weighs 4.1 oz.
They have features that count but not ones that don't. The waist is simply a gathered elastic cord with a cordlock. The leg openings can be cinched tight to keep out bugs, drafts, etc. There is no fly.
The lightweight nylon material is a perfect balance of strength, breathability, water resistance and quick drying.
One observation would add is that the light tan color can be almost see-through when wet.
Bottom line: all my other hiking pants are now useless!
