I got a pair of these for $15 at REI a few years ago, they were a little baggy, but it was a steal and I could tighten the belt and roll them up so I figured what the heck. That was in march of 05. Now I still have these pants, and LOVE them. They are roomy and stretchy, I never think that I could get my foot up higher if only my pants weren't so tight. They are also incredibly durable, I lived in these for the better part of 2 months while on the road climbing, I suffered through many a yosemite offwidth, red rocks approach, and sketchy J-tree descent, and these pants held up. I did tear a hole in the rear pocket and most of the stitches in the back from but scooching down some particularly hairy descents, but a little bit of thread and time, and they are as good as new. These pants also hide dirt pretty well and dry quickly. I can't say enough good things about these pants, I want another pair, and probably a pair of the shorts too, for when it's too hot for the pants (which is rare). I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in a pair of comfortable, durable, and flexible pants.
