Very pleased with weight and fit
November 05, 2012

I have been wearing the discovery pants walking and shopping in order to try them out before my trekking trip to Nepal coming up shortly. I did have to return the first 2 pairs of discovery pants I purchased in size 4 short as they were too tight around the dropped waist. I wear size 4 short in the Royal Robbins pants that zip off to shorts and they are quite roomy (had to take them in a little at the waist), so this was a surprise. The 6 short discovery pants fit perfectly and are very flattering. I am 5'1" and weigh 116 lbs. I love how lightweight and easy to pack they are. The stretch makes them very comfortable and I plan to wear them on the plane and also to dinner at the hotel in Kathmandu as well as trekking. My only complaint is that the slit horizontal pockets in front are too narrow to comfortably reach in with my hand. Also wish they had a pocket in the side seam for slipping a camera in and out of. The boot cut does make a little nylon rubbing noise when walking but not a big issue considering the positives.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, flattering, Cons: rustle when walking, fit not consistent with other pants of same brand

Finally flattering hiking/travel pants. I am petite and these fit extremely well. I bought two pairs and hope they last a long time. The everglade color is a nice shade of green, more of a greenish/gray.

Great pants!

I purchased these for a trip to Europe. I'm 5'6 and 135 lbs and usually wear a size 10, occasionally a size 12 (regular) so I ordered both sizes. The size 12 fit great, but were a little long so I used some iron on hemming material to shorten them. Now they are perfect. Anyway, they were so comfortable that I decided to wear them for the flight. What a great decision! They had just enough stretch to be comfortable the entire 15 hour trip! I also wore them a few times at night (it was too warm to wear pants during the day) and they were easy to dress up. The fabric is also easy to hand wash and dries fairly quickly if you don't have access to a washer and dryer. I'm looking forward to hiking in these pants next month instead of jeans!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, comfort

Great Travel and Riding Pants
November 26, 2011

I wear size 12 and these pants fit great, very flattering. Plan to use them for travel and motorcycle trips. They pack in very little space, fabric is wicking, fast-drying, so they work well for hiking, riding, but also look good in town and going out to eat.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Comfort: 5 / 5
Durability: 4 / 5

I have a couple pairs of these pants and wear them for casual and business as well. They fit well and have a light material that doesn't wrinkle easily. Great for travel! The model was changed recently and I think they fit even better!

Pros: Great design, Performance
