Men's Equinox Convert Pant™ (short)

Style# 54441OR

Move free and easy on the trail in quick-drying, sun-protective fabric, with zip-off lower legs for the convenience of shorts when the temperature is on the rise. The lightweight, quick-dry Equinox Convert Pants™ protect from sun and rain with SolarShield construction and a DWR finish. Ankle zippers make it easy to pull the pants off over boots, and when a cool day starts feeling more like mid-summer, the lower legs can quickly be removed to turn full-length pants into comfortable shorts. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch allow for easy movement while scrambling up scree fields and taking long strides on the trail.

Men's Equinox Convert Pants (short) (Review by By shanghaiken)

I bought these pants for a recent trip to Africa and they were terrific! Excellent quality and fit and when washed or soaked with sweat dry out very quickly...

Men's Equinox Convert Pants (short) (Review by By AL Hiker)

These are truly great pants, I have had a pair for a couple years now that I use hiking all year round (Green). Wanted another green pair, on the web site canteen appears to be green, but when received they are actually brown... Call the colors what they are instead of making up names... canteen? mushroom? come on.

Men's Equinox Convert Pants (short) (Review by By OrangeCrush)

I was actually very hesitant to try a new brand of convertible pants as I really liked the brand that I had been using for years, Mountain Hardware's Matterhorn pants. I wound up finding a pair of OR Equinox Convertible pants on sale so I decided to buy a pair and try them out. I am glad I did as I absolutely love them. First and foremost I love the fit. I am not sure if its because of the sizing or the actual design but the Equinox simply fit me better in the legs and all of the featured that I loved about the Matterhorn are also present with the Equinox. Drawcords for the ankles, UPF 50 sun protection, gusseted crotch, DWR finish, ankle zippers, integrated belt, and front & rear pockets.I do miss the chamois lined waist line but the colored zippers more than make up for it. Its a brilliant idea and it makes the process of zipping the legs back on VASTLY easier. Its a simple idea but extremely effective. It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see other companies pick up on this idea. I wound up using my Equinox on a recent trip to Bryce Canyon and it was a great chance to use them side by side with my Matterhorns. By the end of the trip I was fully sold on the Equinox. They dried faster, were better suited towards hot weather, and were all around more comfortable to wear, especially during activities like backpacking. It rained very lightly a couple of days and the Equinox performed flawlessly in regards to keeping me dry. I have yet to test them in a serious downpour.Of course to not mention how great they look would be criminal as they look amazing and have a great selection of colors. They have a very clean look and can just as easily be worn around town. In fact, I would estimate that 50% of the time I wear them is for casual activities. Bottom line - The Equinox Convertible Pants are amazing and I will be adding many more pairs to my wardrobe in the coming months and years. If you like convertible pants then you owe it to yourself to give the Equinox a try.
