These pants are the reason why I don't like wearing jeans anymore. I was originally put off by the high price of these but gave them a shot anyways. I love how strong the material is in these pants, plus I'm a fan of how much room is provided in the crotch and thigh area. The slit pocket in the side of these pants is perfect for holding my iPhone as well, it's a neat feature I feel they don't advertise. If you don't have a smart phone though you could put an ice cream sandwich in there I suppose.

I was looking for a pant for mtn biking. I was shy at first given the price but these are now my favorite pants. The articulated knees are awesome! The fabric is durable and sharp looking. The patina is really cool. The black on these pants has started to fade from use and show brown through from the inside, making for a neat weathered look.The reinforced pockets are weird. The extra fabric makes it difficult to carry a pocket knife with a clip by far the biggest draw back for me. Otherwise the fit is great and comfy. These pants will hold up for a long time. Just don't let these get wet, they take a long time to dry but that is expected of a cotton pant.
These pants are comfortable and well built. They are reinforced and will stand up to some abuse. The design and cut of these are the really important part though, with the crotch gusset for better freedom of movement and the Athletik fit with larger diameter legs for guys with large thighs and calves. Hiking and climbing leads to large legs, which makes it hard to find pants that fit. These do the trick and they look pretty decent too.
