Love this tech pants

I purchased my first pair as a kickstarter long ago and like them so much I bought another pair just last month (the first ones are still in perfect condition, I just wanted another).

PROS: Very comfortable, super light weight, reasonable price, wash well, dry fast, environmentally friendly (including the packaging!)

CONS: Integrated belt comes unhooked by itself sometimes (mostly if I have been wearing a day or back pack with a hip belt. There is only 1 belt loop to put the "tail" or "extra" length of the belt through and it doesn't hold it, so that ends up just hanging down.

Otherwise I love them!

Another pair!

I already have the blue one for some years now and I love it, so I bought another one.

Good fit for women as well), dries quickly, 5 deep pockets. Best pants for the summer!

Only not so nice thing is that it's not sent from within Europe, so I had to pay import taxes.
