The Men's Paramount Peak Convertible Pant by The North Face or the cool kids say TNF. Updated, these are TNF's or The North Face's best-selling convertible pants, featuring modernized lines, bluesign fabric (socially responsible manufacturing processes), extra carrying capacity and improved durability. Perfect for day hikes, globetrotting, or just touring the Forest Preserve, these pants have an UPF of 30, DWR finish- water repellency, quick drying, partial elastic waist with belt loops, zip-fly, and a built in belt. Convertible into 10" shorts, with color coded leg zips, and secure zip pocket near the right hand pocket for all your hiding needs. These pants remind of the one time I wanted to hike the Grand Canyon, but I couldn't because our tour bus was leaving, or something worthless. I don't know, but the pockets on these guys are really classy. North Face made these out of 100% nylon faille fabric.

I section hiked Virginia in these pants, and they were great. They kept me warm, and quick to dry. Also a nice fit on me. I'm 5'11, 165 pounds, and the M fit perfectly.My friend saw me wearing them, and he said he also had a pair which he used in Peru. Also mentioned how well these pants dry.
The pant is very lightweight and feels durable. It is made of pure nylon but still very comfortable to wear (compared with cotton pants). The only complain is that it is too long for me (I am 5'11 and bought a medium regular. Maybe a medium short is better).
I've had these pants for over a year, lost some weight and had to order a smaller size to keep them from following off of me. I'm tough on gear and these pants have held up to the test of time. The zip pocket is effiecient but the 2 hip pockets are a little big. That is the only negative I have found. They fit well, allow for ample movement while hiking or climbing during almost any season. They aren't great in the summer because they are a little heavy/thick for warmer temperatures, however, the pants are perfect for fall, spring or winter camping. I recommend me these pants for any fall, spring or winter hiking or climbing.
I tried on a lot of different pants before deciding on these. I knew from the first time I put them on I wasn't going to find anything better and I never did. The first time I hiked in them I crossed a creed and didn't even have to roll up the pant legs cause they shed water like duck.
Picked these up about a year ago and I've used them for everything from hiking, camping, swimming and just looking awesome (because they do!) and they've cemented themselves as the best pants I've ever owned. Versatile, comfortable, fast-drying, room for everything and water-resistant enough to keep my phone in my pocket in any reasonable rain.Perfect pants. Perfect shorts. Would gladly wear nothing but these for the rest of my life.
My wife got me the north face paramount peak convertible pants and they have worked out great for my hiking trips. I hike the AT and weather can sometimes change fast on me. They are light and fit great. They come with a belt that works great and it still has belt loops in case you want to use your own which I do sometimes. The pockets are a great size and lay nice a flat when not in use. The bottoms zip on and off with ease without have to take off my boots. Really like. Will be buying another pair.
"Great pants- more comfortable than most synthetic convertibles, look great."
The other reviewers are right- the picture doesn't do these justice. They're extremely versatile. They dry fast and breath well, and are ALMOST as comfortable as cotton. Can be used for summer hiking or underneath a shell for light-and-fast alpine ascents. These are my pants of choice for backpacking trips or a family picnic on the coast when I don't know what the weather will do.
This is a very comfortable and lightweight pair of pants. You can unzip the Legs when it is really hot to cool off. The material is very durable and not unpleasant to feel against your skin. Dave Groll up very small making it easy to store in your day pack.
These pants are very comfortable and easily packable. They are lightweight and Very durable. The convertible legs unzip for lounging around or cooling off easily. There are 800 of pockets which are easily accessible. They are very cool and I use them regularly.
