I would say that I am a big fan of these pants. I purchased a second pair of the Bastion due to comfort and long term "wearability" of these pants. The articulated knees as well as the lighter weight material provides greater flexibility and are not as rigid as the Spotter line. These pants also have a decent button closure which beats the Rampart dual button snap. The only down side with Arcteryx is that the sizing always fluctuates which is why REI's return policy is great. This being said a nice sandcastle or tan color just like in their other similar causal designs would be appreciated.
I bought these for casual use around town, but they've become my favorite pair of pants to climb in. I'll be buying more. The fabric holds up well, I get full range of motion, they're light weight, and they breath well.
About the only drawback, IMO, of these pants would be the cotton material isn't good for wet weather. Since I'm only using them in dry conditions this isn't a problem and actually the cotton is far more comfy than any synthetic.
comfy cotton casual
Bought a pair for work, liked them so much I bought a second. They seem a little tight through the hips compared to the waist, making it hard for me to get my hand in my pockets. Nevertheless, I like the fit. They are cotton, so are not made for technical outdoor adventures, but are great for casual outings.
Just got these while on vacation. Great fitting pants. Lightweight. I really like the Kuhl line of pants but they run a bit baggy on me. I found these to be more form fitting but far from tight or skinny. I'd say a relax to regular fit if comparing it to jeans. Love these pants.
Best pants I own
I've worn these pants for multiple days when out in the woods and they are very comfortable. I also wear these to work and have have several compliments on them. The price is the only downside but they will outlast most other pants.
Very Comfortable Pants, It is advertised as relaxed so it is a little baggy, stitching is as always top notch from Arcteryx, 30" inseam still feels a little long compared to other brands such as Columbia, or Marmot.
umm, they're pants.
Really happy with these pants. Fast becoming my favorite. I make sure I have them when I head out.
Theses to are great, love the fit and how comfortable they are.
I bought a second pair
A perfect pair of pants...in every way.
Good pants. Own two pair.
