I was looking for something a little more dressy looking for my boyfriend. These are super lightweight pants and pretty much have the "swishy" feel of typical track pants. I was looking for something that he could wear out in the field and also not feel dressed down when he returned to the office, since he often has days where he needs to complete work both in the field and office. These would make nice field pants for the summer. He said they were lightweight and comfortable, but he just would not feel comfortable working in the office with them since they seemed too much like track pants.
Bought an earlier version of these several years ago and loved them . V2's are even better.Chamois materiel on inside waist is great, helps prevent chaffing on long hikes. Being in the Boy Scouts and tried their regulation pants these destroy them for basically the same price. I have worn them for several events and if you choose the forest color they look just like regulation scouting pants.Side zippered pocket with lanyard keeper is great to keep small flashlight on.
