I love these pants. I usually hike in leggings, but I wanted something lighter weight and a little more durable for summer hiking in New Zealand. These pants are super lightweight and comfortable, have good pockets, and feel well-made and durable. They aren't waterproof, but seem to be somewhat water-resistant, as I've hiked in the rain in the them several times without getting soaked. There is no stretch in the waistband, but it measures true to the size chart, so just check before ordering.
