Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best convertibles ever I bought these to hike in for all weather types. I was hiking in the Great Smokies and wore these with one base layer. They fit great, and performed better than expected to the weather I was hiking in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the stretch I wanted convertible pants for a hike into the Blue Ridge Mountains. The comfort and stretch of these pants are outstanding - love the light weight quick dry feature since it was drizzling on the 5 mile hike. Recommended these pants to my sister who is going to hike through national parks in Utah this October. Also recommended these pants to my niece who's moving to CO in August.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great convertible pant! Nice stretch fabric. Rise is not too high. I would not recommend for hippy/pear type shape. The pant leg where the zip is is a bit heavy but not too visually noticeable or bulky. I am 5'4" average athletic build about 125-130 pounds and size 4 fits ok. A bit tight at waistband. I think if I was any taller, size 4 would be too short. When you squat, the fabric stretches nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel Perfect for travel. I haven't used the pants with the zip off legs yet, but I plan to travel this summer when it's hot and visit Minnesota, Wyoming and Colorado. Cool in the morning and hot in the afternoon. These pants are lightweight. The legs zip off so smoothly. I couldn't believe how easy they came off and then zipped right back on. The fit was perfect for me because I'm short waisted. The pockets held my iPhone 11. Yep perfect pants for me even though I had to hem them a little. 170 pounds 5'3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite pants I own! These are the favorite pair of pants I own, and I recently bought a second pair. They are the perfect weight at least three seasons of the year, and are appropriate for a variety of outdoor activities. I love that I can begin cool days with pants and convert to shorts as the day warms up. I have owned my first pair for over a year and they still look new. I only wish they came in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants! These pants are comfortable, lightweight and quick drying-just what I needed for hiking, fishing and going on safari! Well constructed, they fit me true to size. The zip off legs have colored coordinated zippers so there’s no mistaking which leg you are reattaching! I bought these on sale and plan to buy another color before my next trip! I highly recommend these pants/shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I Found These! I was thrilled to find these Woman’s Convertible Hiking Pants at Orvis, as they are the only ones that would work for me. I had been searching for a convertible pant to add to my travel wardrobe. As I am 5’6 and long long-waisted, petite pants are too short for me. Consequently, I have to buy regular pants, and shorten them. Unfortunately, the convertible hiking pants offered by Orvis’ other major competitors all have side zippers on the bottom of each leg, so are difficult/expensive to have shortened. I normally wear a size 4, and the Orvis convertible pant fits true to size. I also love the color, which is a cross between brown and olive, and should go with everything!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for safari Not the most flattering pant in the world, but great color and nice feature of zip-off legs for safari. I would say the fit is pretty true to size, or a tiny bit large, but I wanted them a little large for comfort. I am 5' 10" and they were just long enough (or a little shorter than I would have liked), so for most women, they'll be fine.
