KÖPPEN Men's Torrant Convertible Tech Pant
Decent convertible pants
These are lightweight, insect repellent, moisture wicking, and very comfortable.
That being said, there are a few things that could be improved upon. The back pockets are Velcro, which is fine, but they put the hook strip is on the side that rubs against your hand instead of the other side where your hand never touches. Every time I go into my back pocket I get scratched by it.
Also, the fly zipper slider and pull tab are metal while the chain is made of plastic, this would seem to me that it would wear out the zipper much faster than if it was all plastic.
Finally, the legs unzip, and the slider is left on the shorts side instead of coming off with the pant leg, thus leaving a bump and possible hazard.
Other than those things, the fabric is good, they don't' wrinkle easily, and the cell phone pocket is a nice feature.
I plan to buy another pair in a different color.

Toughest pants on the planet!
I did the Tough Mudder 12-mile obstacle course wearing these pants. I though I would end up throwing them away afterwards. Much to my surprise, the pants made it through to the end without damage! Surprisingly too, they repelled dirt and mud. When they got wet they didn't weigh me down and dried fairly quickly. I would totally buy more of these pants.

I bought these pants to take to Japan. I climbed Mt. Fuji in them and slid part way back down the mountain. They didn't rip! I couldn't believe it! I teach school and sit on the floor with the kids often. They are so durable! Wish they came in more colors!

went to Medeterranean where we visited several churches. Respect requires long pants, but easily converted to shorts after visits. I am a 38 waist but the Large was a bit too big and length a bit too long and the Medium was too small...need some different sizes availsble. More pockets , i.e. Cargos would be beneficial...but overall still a good product

Good material but terrible cut
I was very excited about this lightweight bug repellent pant, however my excitement quickly turned to pain. On an average summer day in Michigan (low80s), I was on a 19.5 mile hike, when at mile 8, the low hanging stitching of the crotch area began rub my inner thighs raw. By mile 15, I was trying to tie the material tight to my thighs to avoid continued friction. Needless to say, I returned this product as defective after rubbing the skin off of my inner legs on my first ever hike with them. The material was nice and I liked the removable belt, however the pant just does not fit well even for me who is probably slightly more of a larger build than your average serious trekker.
