The versatility of the Columbia Sportswear Men's Backcountry Convertible Pant is key when you’re bushwacking through the backcountry to get to that secret fishing hole. Durable nylon will keep your legs protected as you move through grass and brush. When you reach your destination, zip-off the legs to convert these rugged pants into hard-working, pocket-packed shorts perfect for standing in the river and staying cool in the sunshine. No need to worry if you find yourself in too deep - they dry quickly so you’ll be comfortable for your walk back to the truck. Plus, they’re treated to repel bugs to keep you annoyance-free while you enjoy the great outdoors. UPF 30 sun protection keeps you shielded from harsh UV rays so you can stay outside longer.

Great Backwoods/Flyfishing Pants
July 18, 2011

I purchased these pants to meet three specific requirements. I needed them to repel insects because I flyfish and the insects usually are where the fish can be found. Swatting mosquitos and green flies detracts from casting frequency. I wanted a full length pant I could wear to deter scratches and scrapes from brush when walking into choice fishing spots yet also wanted to convert to a short so I could fish small streams sans waders. I also wanted a material that would dry quickly when wet and a zipper that would not chafe the skin around my knees when I converted them to shorts. These pants surpassed all my expectations during a week long fishing/backpacking trip in the Adirondacks last week. They are remarkably light weigh and comfortable. I stand 6"3", 220 and the XL fit very comfortably. I highly recommend these pants.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

These convertible pants fit perfect. Quality is good. Am looking forward to having them on a 3 week trip to Alaska. This will test out the bug repelling feature. Being light weight and quick drying make them perfect for traveling light.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
