What is the length of the inseam?

Hi Derek,

The inseam is 31 inches on the 30 inch waist, 32 inches on the 32/33 waist and 34 inches on the 35 waist.

Let me know if I can do anything else for you!

Good comfortable hiking pant

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these for my son who is an avid hiker. I see him wearing these every time he goes out. He says they are comfortable and lightweight. The snap in the front works fine for now but he worries it will wear out.

Thanks for passing on the review, Trish. Rest assured if that snap ever wore out, OR would warranty it for sure. I haven't seen it ever wear out myself, so I think he will be good to go!

Good pant for muscular legs

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 34

I really like these pants. I have muscular legs and a (34 in) waist and it is difficult to find pants that are made for (ahem) real men. The legs only have one v stitch, as opposed to the Patagonia Quandary pants, which have two. This makes these pants a bit on the baggier side below the knees. I find the built in belt works well and doesn't come loose and if you don't like it you can remove it and use a regular belt. The DWR treatment works like it typically does. Areas that experience stretching, such as the quadricep area usually soak through on a hike but they dry quickly. The front pockets have a thicker fold around the opening that I feel will help reduce wear from say a pocket knife clip. I was a bit skeptical about OR using a snap instead of a button but it has never come undone.

Almost but not quite

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 32

These pants were almost great, there was only one major downside: there is a snap instead of a button to fasten the waist. What's worse is that it's a weak snap, which literally undoes if you put your hand into a pocket. These would be impossibly frustrating in any situation except for standing still. I'm a big fan of OR gear, but they missed the bar on this one.
