Finding convertible pants that fit comfortably proved very difficult. I am 5ft 11, 34 inch waist and 180lbs, I tried countless brands and they all seemed too narrow and tight in the hips and thighs.
Finally, I discovered The North Face Paramount Peak Convertible pants and tried the Medium ? Regular size, it was just the cut and fit I was looking for, perfect in waist, length and overall.
We recently spent 2 weeks in DC, Philly, NY, Boston and a few remote areas with average daily temperatures and humidity exceeding 90 and 80% respectively. The convenience of converting these to shorts on the fly was one of the main reasons for the purchase and I was not disappointed. Open the ankle zipper, unzip the leg at the lower thigh and the leggings easily slide over even the bulkiest of shoes. We were caught in a downpour while in Portland Maine and converting these back to full length pants proved just as easy and convenient.
My wife and I are finally at a stage in life where we can travel more and we use carry-on luggage only. These pants roll up nicely and obviously remove the need of packing additional shorts when traveling in spring and summer.
They are as close to wash and wear as I have found. When they need to be laundered, I simply wash in the sink or tub, wring out, roll dry in a towel and hang up to find them fully dry the following morning.
The pockets are also awesome and plentiful. There are two cargo pockets on the thighs, one security zippered pocket on the right hip (perfect for a small wallet) two deep hand pockets in the front and two more pockets in the rear. Cargo and rear pockets have Velcro flaps that have held up well under frequent use and seem to be built to last.
The pants have a built in belt, this allows me to leave one more thing behind when we travel light, but also has additional loops that allow for a secondary belt if the need to hang or carry additional items arises. The North Face has thought of everything with these pants!
I bought these for a two week trip down to Patagonia, and wore them each day of the "W" circuit in Torres del Paine, Chile. Extremely comfortable, durable, quick drying. I did not use the zip-off feature. There is a zippered side pocket on the right side which is handy to keep valuables. This pant has a more of a mid-weight feel to it compared to the Columbia Silver Ridge convertible pant -- more suitable in my opinion for cooler weather hiking. I live in Northern California, and it doesn't get too hot here.
I typically wear a 35 or 36 waist jeans/pants from places like the Gap, and the Medium size fit well. I ordered a Large at first, but it was too baggy. For me, the medium size still allowed me to wear a baselayer underneath without problems. I'm 6ft tall, and the medium's length was just fine.
I bought a pair of these pants 3 years ago and now they are my go to pants. I use them for everything including day hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing (with appropriate layers), and kayaking. My first pair was my sole pair of pants for over a year. I have had some issues with the seams breaking in heavy wear areas, but that is to be expected after several years of extensive use.
They are light weight and comfortable. The ability to turn them into shorts or just to unzip as a vent has come in handy on countless occasions. I also appreciate the ample pockets.
All in all a great pair of pants. The upfront cost was hard to swallow at first, but I have learned from experience that they are well worth the cost.
I bought these pants for a 16 km total, fairly rough hike with a pack. After two nights of camping the butt is quite frayed from sitting on a rock and stitching broke just below the belt loop in the back middle of the pants. I'm not sure I'd buy North Face gear again if they can't even last a weekend. I was expecting more from pants that cost me $80.
Otherwise, the material was light and comfortable and of course half-zips are the way to go if you want to travel light. I liked the colour and they fit well.
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.
