The Patagonia Men's GI III Zip-Off Pant is a convertible hiking pant for mild to hot weather adventures. The GI III goes from a pant to a short and back again with the simple zip of the zipper that falls just above the knee. The lightweight nylon fabric provides 50+ UPF sun protection and is coated with a durable water repellent finish for light rain protection. If the day is cool, go with the pants and once it heats up switch to the shorts. Bushwacking through a rough spot on the trail? No worries, the lightweight fabric won't cause you to overheat if you have to stick with the pant. A gusseted crotch allows for easy movement and comfort.

I have only worn these a few times, but I already am in love. These pants are super lightweight, but seem rock-solid for durability and keeping me cool. Overall construction quality is as good as ever, and the built-in belt is a big plus. Show of hands—who's gone on a backpacking trip only to forget a belt for their pants? (This guy has.)Size/fit: I'm 6'3, 200lbs; the XL fits fine around my waist, isn't too baggy, and the inseam is the perfect length.
These are my go to hiking pants from spring to fall. I have tried 6-7 different pants from all the best companies and I really don't think any come close these pants. Just awesome like most other patagonia gear.
