The lightweight, quick-dry nylon Men's Equinox Convertible Pants from Outdoor Research have zip-off legs that can quickly be removed to turn full-length pants into comfortable shorts as the weather turns warmer. Ankle zippers make it easy to pull legs off over boots. UPF 50 sun protection keeps you covered when rays beat down and a DWR finish sheds moisture from morning dew on foliage. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch allow easy movement for scrambling up large scree fields and taking long strides.

Nice quality and styling
August 17, 2012

I bought the convertible trou for world travel (due to their light weight and ever-decreasing foreign carry-on weight restrictions) and hiking in different regions. The styling and quality are such that I feel comfortable wearing them to dinner, etc., as well as hiking. After looking at the styling (front & back pocket styles, tailoring, fabric, etc.) of other convertible trou in a store, I'm pleased with my choice. They could use a zippered pocket, but at least the front pockets are fairly deep. The inseam on my 34W's was 31.5" as the fabric lay loose and 32" stretched. The zippers worked well.

Really good
September 11, 2012

I picked these up to replace some other brands; I've used MH, Helly, EMS, Columbia. I've only taken them out for one weekend, but after a weekend, I have to say that these rise above. The material is crazy soft and light and comfy, not swishy-sounding. Feels like they will be really durable. Comfortable fit, The waist is perhaps a touch large, but the rest was more streamlined -- not as all around baggy as a lot of the competition, but not too slim either. Zippers all work right, not sticky or jammy. They don't have cargo pockets or zippered pockets, which isn't ideal. Basically, there are 70 different pants you could buy to serve this purpose. I haven't tried every one, but I can say that these rise to the top of the ones I've tried. The fit, the feel, the construction -- they're just a cut above.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

very good outdoor pants
September 01, 2011

This is my second Equinox Convertible Pants, I like its attention to detail, for example: zipper colors different for each leg, DWR finish, lightweight, Drawcord ankle adjustments, UPF 50+, etc. Don't overlook all those combination, I find that quite hard to have them all in another pants. When I carefully checking all the parts like pocket inside before I writing this review, they are surprisingly still in very good condition after 2 years usage.

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

excellant hiking pant
July 16, 2011

Ok so MH removed the drawcord hem from this years Mesa convertible, my fav hiking pant.. Enter the Outdoor Research Equinox, great fit, soft yet durable, (better than MH in this area), lightweight super quick drying and wicking.. DRAWCORD hem at leg keeps out the bugs, sand, pebbles.. Love this feature! Could benefit from a included belt, backup velcro at snap closure and a zip key/coin pocket and, cargo pocket for maps, that would make this full featured and better than any MH pant.. still because of premium material and drawcords I will choose this over my other branded pants for my 10 day treks.. becoming a huge fan of Outdoor Research products!

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, drawcord leg hem big plus, Cons: missing minor bonus features..
