Outdoor Research Equinox Convert Pants Reviews:


These pants were the ideal culmination of everything I look for in a convertible hiking pant. They look great as pants, with the zippers hardly noticeable, and they look even better as shorts. The material is durable, allowing me to trounce through the scrubby desert without worry. They are light, yet surprisingly insulating when the temps drop. I have rocked these pants below freezing with a base layer and felt great, and as shorts when the temps get into the 90s. Simple design by the outdoor industry leader, OR, makes these pants super functional without making you look like a tool.

Tanner Knight at Backcountry.com on 06/05/2012

I totally dig these pants- the zippers on the bottom of the leg are a life saver. They repel light water and clean/dry very easily. The nylon is much softer than some of my cheapo zip-off's, and they seem to breathe much better. I wish they had a cargo pocket! Pretty happy with these basic zip-offs though. I wear a 32x32 but sized up to a 34- might be a mistake on a thru-hike due to weight loss, but for weekend wars it was a good call.

Brian Donner at Backcountry.com on 04/19/2011

The one thing I was worried about before buying these was if the zipper that separates would be too easily felt and that it would rub harshly on my knee, but that was not the case at all. The are light and breathable. I only have one complaint, I wear 32x32 and got the regular length and that was great when standing up, but when i sit down the pant bottom rises up a little too high.

The first trip these pants saw was to Mt. Rainier in July. They were the perfect pant with an baselayer to get from the visitor's center to Camp Muir. Super lightweight but good at blocking wind. I'll be using them this weekend to summit Ruby Dome in Northern Nevada.

glad I found these pants here

I bought a pair of these previously and love them and wanted more pairs so I came here. Same pant as before but the advertised different colored leg zippers are not different colors
guy at Mountain Gear on 08/08/2013

I got these really cheap on backcountryoutlet.com. I'd have trouble buying them at full price but at 50% off who can complain? Vey light and breathable, not at all intended for harsher weather.

Great for hiking & travel

Nice pant.but the length a little too short
