Quite possibly the perfect travel pants, these lightweight nylon pants are stain-, water-, and wrinkle-resistant, pack easily, and are quick drying and moisture wicking.

    Pants for any weather - 7/24/2014
    By: from Sylva, NC

    The nice thing about these pants is that you can start out with them on in cooler mornings and zip off the bottoms to continue into the afternoons. Fit is very good as well and true to size ordered.

    Perfectly sized light weight pants that can adapt to weather changes. Easy to wear and pack. I will use these for both tropical and cooler climate outdoor sports trips when traveling. True to size.

    Wish I could clean them - 6/16/2014
    By: from Pasadena, CA

    Seemed like lovely material, light, strong, soft, nice to wear, good fit. Wore them for an 11 mile hike, and swore I'd go buy two more pairs. Then I noticed that I'd sat on a tree branch that had some soot on it from a fire, and put them in the washer. They came out looking just as dirty as when I put them in. Tried stain remover. No dice. A real shame but now I don't want to wear them because they really look awful. They are still highly functional, but looks matter too!

    Enjoy wearing it... - 6/10/2014

    I thought the pants fit well. It was a perfect length for petite 4. Looking forward to wearing them a lot during the summer months.

    Great pants - 5/28/2014

    Regular size fits better than petite for me. Very comfortable and versatile. I'm taking these on safari and they roll up very well to pack. Tried out the insect repellant feature at the ballpark and no bites! I recommend these pants. I bought through the store and both shipping and the cost to get hemmed at a local tailor were included! Great service!

    Best pants for a buggy area - 5/20/2014
    By: from St. Petersburg, FL

    I purchased the Ziwa convertible pants for my granddaughter who is doing research in a mine in Glenallen, Alaska. The mosquitoes are fierce and she reports that the pants are effective in protecting her legs. I'm a long time fly fisher and have found the new bugaway pants very effective in protecting my legs. The products carried by Orvis meet the needs of 3 generations of members of my family.

    Love These Pants - 5/12/2014

    Super comfortable for gardening and outdoor activities. Very lightweight and cool enough to wear as long pants in hot weather if you want to protect from ticks when sitting on the ground or kneeling and working. True to size.
