    Great for active lifestyle - 5/15/2014

    These pants are great. I am on my second pair after ripping one of the pant legs sliding into third base during a softball game, but these are very light weight, comfortable, and versatile. I have worn these on hikes, while doing yard work, and batting .702 in a local softball league and the only person they dissappoint is the opposing pitcher as he sees me crossing home plate.

    ExOfficio® BugsAway® Ziwa Convertible Pant - 4/4/2014
    By: from Minnesota

    I chose the Orvis product over other similar products because of the bugs away feature and the overall fit. The waist band expand ability is just right. The zippers are also of good quality. The only thing I would recommend as a user is to have a wider right leg Velcro pocket. I have large hands and fingers and I would prefer another half inch. These are a great pair of pants!

    Great pants. Lightweight, quick drying, elastic waist. Orvis needs more trousers made of this material!!

    Comfort Perfection - 12/23/2013
    By: from Northwest Florida

    Have found these convertible pants absolutely the most comfortable slacks for playing golf. When the weather forecast calls for "multiple layers" these pants are the perfect match. Light weight for long pants and the "cargo bermuda" shorts keep you cool once the temperature rises. Perfect golf attire for those transitional weather months. Only drawback is the need for more color options.

    Great convertible pants - 7/12/2013
    By: from Albuquerque NM

    I do not "fit" well in most women's pants or jeans if they are fitted at all. I basically have no waistline so the built in curves in women's items don't work for me. I generally always buy men's jeans and some cargo shorts. I bought two pair each of these pants for my husband and me, as we are headed to Tanzania for a safari in September. They wash nicely and dry quickly. DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DRYER or if you do, have it on the coolest setting possible, as they shrink in length.

    Great Pants but...only if your leg length is 32"! - 7/8/2013

    I love these pants...very cool and comfortable with the summer heat in the 90+ degrees! The fabric is strong and wears very well. The only criticism I have is the length. My pant length is 30 and the 32 inch inseam (only length available)drags along the ground. I guess I will have to get them altered at an additional expense.

    Light weight easy to pack - 12/30/2012

    These pants are light weight and easy to travel with- lots of pockets and good for insect repellent

    Great shorts - 12/29/2012

    My husband loves these pants. He normally wears them as shorts. He loves the light weight of the fabric. The insect repellent is a nice feature, although he's never focused on whether it really repels insects or not.
