I bought these same pants in the khaki color over a year ago and I love them so this year I got a second pair. I work in a casual office environment where we are not allowed to wear shorts in the summer but we don't have to wear dress pants. These pants keep me relatively cool in the summer months and breathe well. The pant legs roll up easily for bike commuting with them as makeshift capris rolled up to just below my knees. Great for hiking and biking and my active lifestyle outside of work as well. They are very comfortable and have plenty of pockets making them a great choice for traveling. They've been with me to 6 different countries so far! They also dry out relatively quickly as well considering how breathable they are. They are not water or wind resistant. My only complaint is that the waistline on my khaki pair has absorbed a lot of the coloring from my black leather belt and from my black backpack.
