The Men's Paramount Peak Convertible Pant by The North Face or the cool kids say TNF. Updated, these are TNF's or The North Face's best-selling convertible pants, featuring modernized lines, bluesign fabric (socially responsible manufacturing processes), extra carrying capacity and improved durability. Perfect for day hikes, globetrotting, or just touring the Forest Preserve, these pants have an UPF of 30, DWR finish- water repellency, quick drying, partial elastic waist with belt loops, zip-fly, and a built in belt. Convertible into 10" shorts, with color coded leg zips, and secure zip pocket near the right hand pocket for all your hiding needs. These pants remind of the one time I wanted to hike the Grand Canyon, but I couldn't because our tour bus was leaving, or something worthless. I don't know, but the pockets on these guys are really classy. North Face made these out of 100% nylon faille fabric.

The zipper pocket broke after the second day. The belt pops constantly and they aren't even tight on me. The convertible pant is great for backpacking weight and the fabric is durable but besides the obvious functionality I'm not impressed at all. The fabric is too heavy for warm days and uncomfortable when hot and climbing; can't wear these Spring to Fall. This is the first and last NF product I will ever buy. The shorts look make me look like a Swiss tourist so now I wear gym shorts on trips and bring long johns for underneath.
This is my third pair of Paramounts. The others have been great, but this new version is not fit for purpose.
The material is very abrasive against the skin.
The crotch point is very low which restricts hip movement - you can't take long strides (unless you hoist the waist up above your navel).
The material has no stretch. Again this restricts movement. This is especially noticeable when climbing steep slopes or steps. The problem is compounded by the abrasive material that doesn't slide easily over the skin. It can be quite unpleasant.
I have 9 pairs of these pants. Newer ones for better outings, older pairs for the 'big hikes', multiday wilderness. The new style with the longer crotch and scratchy fabric are a real disappointment. For the first time in over a decade I'm looking around for another brand. Bring back the old style!
