I discovered these pants while in a store and getting recommendations from a salesgirl while looking for comfortable hiking/travel pants. I would not have discovered these pants without the recommendation. After buying my first pair and taking it travelling -- it was hard NOT to wear them everyday. It's hard not to want to wear them everyday as they are so comfortable and practical even for playing with kids in the park. The side pocket is so handy for my cell phone and love the stretch fabric in the waist as it makes it so much more comfortable to wear for all types of activities. I wore them so often that I finally bought a second pair and it will probably be my go-to staple for all my travels. I noticed the pewter colour I got was lighter than the online version; and it would be great if they brought the darker pewter back as it's a great base piece to have; although eventually I will probably buy one in almost every colour. It would be great if they would also come out with a navy blue colour... I'm only 5'1" and they are a perfect fit and length for my height and build -- which is not always easy to find.
