RATING AND REVIEWS

These pants are pants

5

Great pants, perfect for hiking and exploring! Everything I wanted in a pair of zip-offs, except for a side zipper on the bottom of the pants for making it easier to get over shoes. No big deal though, everything else fits and looks great.

Great pants for backpacking/hiking/camping/daily use

I love these pants. They are very durable, very lightweight, and somewhat water resistant. Even when they do get wet, they dry very quickly. I've used them kayaking, backpacking and hiking. They are comfortable look good too.

Investing in a second pair for lightweight travelling!

Now my favorite pair of shorts, can't wait to travel with these convertibles as well. Incredibly lightweight, extremely comfortable and breathable. Time will tell on the durability but so far they're holding up well. I'll be investing in one more pair of these for minimalist travelling. Very well constructed, super pleased.

Moving on to my 4th Pair

These are my all purpose pant. Warm or cold weather, they beat the wind in most conditions. I usually hike in these down to 30 F, and then add a base layer under if it's much colder. Rain pant over the too if it's really wet. I also add an insulated pant over while in camp or in long breaks while snowshoeing when I'm not moving. Otherwise, this is all I wear year-round. I'm in my 4th pair only because of catching on rusty nails or the pick of an ice axe, otherwise I've gotten 4 years of heavy use out if them

So close to greatness...

I'm a former backcountry guide. I now backpack with my kids, and get out pretty much every weekend, and on 3 or for extended trips each year. I really wanted to love these pants. But going from 32 to 34...I'm in between and they slide off. If you had more sizing options or perhaps some elastic to bridge the sizing gap. Also, the convertible zipper still sways like a hoop skirt banging my legs when I walk. A lighter weight zipper might do the trick. Needs to not feel like it's there. Generally, though, LOVE OR gear. Keep innovating! Thanks!

Best Pants Ever!

I love these pants! I've had a pair of the regular Ferosi pants for a couple years and they were my favorites. Decided to get the ones with the zip off legs for a backpacking trip. It poured rain and the rain pants I had over them were old and didn't work. When it stopped raining, I took the rain pants off and the ferosis were soaked. They dried faster than any gear I've ever had. I definitely recommend these pants.

I think I found my new favorite pants

5

There are now my go to pants for any longer climbing or hiking trips. The water repellency is still there after 5 washes and the fabric is stretchy making it super comfortable to active days. I thought it would be a little bulky and won't be suitable for anything other than shoulder season use but it is light enough to be great for warm weather use too. I would definitely buy it again.

Nice pants, but not for hiking, climbing, or backpacking

3

I use them for hiking and glacier climbing (in summer). I think the pants are quite comfortable, light, and fit great, but the lack of ankle zips is a huge disappointment. I was going to return them, but then I checked with my tailor and she is able to put ankle zips in. I don't understand the point of making a convertible pant with zip off legs without including ankle zips. After zipping the legs off, I cannot fit them over my climbing boots. I haven't tried, but I suspect they will fit over sneakers or running shoes since they have some stretch in them.

Great Product

These pants are great. The material is incredibly quick drying, offers full range of motion and plenty of elastic stretch to the waist so you can keep wearing them even if you go up in size for any other pants. They stay cool in the summer but plenty warm in the winter and from what I have seen so far, they are quite durable. I would recommend these to anyone for almost any use.
