These pants are very lightweight but durable. They have achieve a good balance between breathability and wind blocking ability, so they are good for high-output activities. With an insulating layer, they do well for winter hiking. I have found the fit to be good. In particular, the size 36 will accommodate up to a 33" inseam. Overall the styling is good. The only style down side I have encountered is the zipper fly is asymmetric (offset left of body centreline). There is a noticeable difference in distance to the front belt loops, left and right.
