Rated 4 out of 5 by SkepticShopper from Comfortable pants / won't fit over hiking boot I love these pants. The stretch material is super comfortable. They are medium weight - heavy enough to hike in without worrying that they'll be ripped to shreds if you walk through bushes or sit on a rock, but light enough that they aren't too heavy to wear / carry. There are lots of pockets - and they zip shut - a nice touch. Why 4 stars instead of 5? They have straight legs at the bottom. It's next to impossible to get them over a midweight hiking boot. If they had more of a stretch or a bottom zip to get over a boot, these would be 5+ star pants...Still - I love them and own a pair in shorts plus the zip offs.[

Rated 2 out of 5 by MidnightBlue from way too tight, awful fit I ordered these for myhsuband in the size pants he wears in every other Bean style (inc zip-offs in previous year) and they are a very weird fit. Extremely tight & also short in the rise, I don't know if even a size up would fit. Please bring back models you had a few years ago. He had two different ones in the last 5 years and they were both great. Also they were a nice cotton blend not such sticky stretchy nylon, and nice for hiking in spring & fall as well as summer. He also has the tropic-wear ones which are great, but not for hiking in the mountains. This model is a real disapointment (and it sounds like the other option–timberledge-would also be a bad fit, judging by the reviews) So not sure what ot do. Sadly will have to look elsewhere :-(

Rated 4 out of 5 by rupa78 from Great hiking pants with one fatal flaw I really like these hiking pants a lot, but am limited to only wearing them when I know I won't be removing the bottoms of the pant legs. I know, that kind of defeats the purpose of zip-offs. lol It didn't occur to me until after I bought them that there would be no way to get the unzippered bottoms off without removing my hiking boots, which is a pain on the trail. They need a vertical zipper/velcro slit at the bottom to get them over the boots. I still gave them 4 stars even though the lack of the zipper/velcro slit detracts a lot from the utility of the pants, as they are still OK with low-cut hiking shoes. I would recommend them only if they were going to be worn with low-cut hiking shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Warm and comfortable hiking pants I was gearing up for a multi-day weekend hike up snowy Mount Cardigan in New Hampshire. Normally I just wear shorts and pull up my socks if I need to, but with the rain/snow conditions I opted for these pants. I gambled taking them on this longer trip for the first time out, but they were surprisingly warm against the falling snow, and the intense winds at the summit. I give them a 5-star rating because they are incredibly comfortable, durable, light, and even came in a 33" waist which I prefer. That's me on the right in the blue coat staying warm and wind-protected on my legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbeagle from Really like these pants I am a woman and I generally buy men's pants; they tend to fit my shape better (the ability to order a specific waist and length size is a plus# and I like the generous pockets. I purchased these last minute before a trip to Nevada #spending the extra $ for expedited shipping) and I wasn't disappointed. The pants are just what I was looking for - light and comfortable with the ability to go from pants to shorts in a matter of seconds. The color coded zippers on the legs are very helpful. I wore these pants on the plane and the only problem I had was that the leg zippers "pinged" during the scan through security and TSA had to verify that I didn't have anything in my pockets. Very minor issue. I will definitely order another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by shelia from Wonderful for Tropical Weather My husband and I both bought these to take to Tahiti and the surrounding islands. The material breathes wonderful and does dry quickly which is a plus in that heat. Legs zip on and off smoothly. Zippers are color coded so it's easy to see which parts go back together. We had them washed several times on the cruise ship washers and they did wash up well. All pockets zip and are big enough to hold an iPhone 8 plus and zip it in. So plenty of space to carry what you need. Waist is comfortable and a bit stretchy. No complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VAGuy1749363840 from Cresta Zip OFf Hiking Pants These are nice, comfortable, and functional hiking pants. The material is light and durable, with plenty of zippered pockets. Be careful on the sizing. They are made to sit below the waist and snug across hips and thighs, as advertised. I am 51, 6'1", 210 pounds. My normal waist size (35) resulted in an order that was way too snug across my hips and seat. I went up a waist size to get the extra room I needed in seat and hip area. These pants are cut for a younger hiker, but they will work if you adjust waist size upward. I personally don't care for pants that ride below the waist, but it works on hiking pants once you get used to it. This explains some of the short-zipper comments in earlier posts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DanteF from Poor product design These pants have several serious flaws. The crotch is cut too high for a man's hiking pant, so they bind when walking or sitting The front zipper is too short to be very functional, and the rear pocket zippers failed after one washing. This is an unusually poor product for L. L. Bean
