Rated 2 out of 5 by from No fly I bought these a while back and was hoping I would like them more. So I didn't see the other reviews. There's no fly even though it looks like there should be in the photos. To make matters worse, the material is thicker than I expected making it even less user friendly. In general, I love Orvis products but this is sub-optimal. The description of the pants should be changed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look and fit! These are the best pants for outdoor wear that Orvis has offered in years. Can be worn even as dress down attire with a sweater or untucked shirt. Will own all three colors soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusual and comfortable These trousers are unusual in that they are not unlike a thick canvas, rugged and well constructed pair of track bottoms. They have plenty of room and give and are great for hiking and fishing. I really like them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong Gear Ordered on line,. Stitching and design is great material is canvas like which will enable these pants to last a long time even with extensive wear. However, the rise is too short for me so I find myself continually pulling the pants up. The draw string, while a good feature and one that drew me to purchase this item, does not secure the waste. Will not reorder but for someone with a shorter rise they would be an excellent purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love these pants Frist of all I love the weight of these pants, they're robust not flimsy. They have a brushed denim broken in feel, very soft and the fit is superb. There is one draw back ( forgive the pun), as I am rounder, with just a draw string the weight of the pants tend to pull them down. I use suspenders problem solved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective Elastic Waistband/ Poor Design Product arrived with almost no elasticity in the waistband and after only two washes the elasticity failed. The drawstring is not much more than a boot lace and is insufficient to secure the pants at the waist; poorly designed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No I ordered 3 pairs of these pants. When I received them I was not happy. They didn’t have a fly. The picture in the category looked like they had a fly. I returned them to the Kenwood store and the man I talked to was very nice and let me exchange them for 3 other pairs of pants. I also bought 2 shirts before I left the store. I was treated way better than I had expected. I want to thank you for your courtesy.
