Are you really interested in long pants for the desert, jungle, or backcountry that are superlight, tough, and airy? With the Eco-Mesh Pants, you now have amazing temperatureregulating features. Constructed out of two-ply, 3-oz. Duralite nylon fabric, the tricked-out elements are 27-inch side zippers concealed behind vertical bands, which provide air flow to that one troubling hot spot encountered by most hikers: the crotch. Behind the tucked-away zippers are soft-mesh panels whose duty is to funnel air in and around your nether regions. With the zippers closed, the abrasion- resistant Eco-Mesh Pants resemble a traditional pair of khakis. Because the fabric is now treated with Insect Shield® technology, you have protection against mosquitoes, biting flies, and ticks. The fit is enhanced by elastic side panels at the waist, and sports two on-seam front pockets, 2 zippered back pockets. Super packable, with a 15-minute maximum drying time. Includes a new side-zippered security pocket.

Love these for back-country and general hiking. The zip panels are excellent and I very much like the pocket assortments and where. I own two pair my only caution is that they might not hold up real well if you do a lot of scramble-type stuff but I've yet to destroy a pair doing so......

Love these pants for warm weather hikes Wore these on two backpacking trips in AZ and Utah. Normally I wear shorts hiking in warm temps but will all the prickly vegetation you encounter in the desert you want long pants with super long leg vents like these. Kept me cool while also protecting my legs. Living in Florida I appreciate the Insect Shield treatment when the sun goes down and the bugs come calling.I've used these pants pretty hard for the last two years with no signs of wear. Just ordered a pair for my wife.

I have used these pants for hiking and backpacking for many years. I just bought my third pair. Features I really like are the insect protection the ample ventilation and the zippered pockets. Ticks are a big worry in the northeast. I wear pants instead of shorts to help avoid them. Tuck the cuffs into my socks. This means that the ventilation is essential. The insect shield makes them even better. The zippered pockets means that I can be sure that I will lose neither my wallet nor my car keys while in the woods. Over all an excellent pair of pants.
