Outdoor Research Ferrosi Convertible Pant - Women's

Put the top down and cruise.

Even though the weather is warm, shiver-inducing breezes and unexpected sprinkles can show up at any time when you're in the mountains, so be ready with the Outdoor Research Women's Ferrosi Convertible Pants. These two-in-one softshell pants have a lightweight, breathable fabric that never feels too hot but can always be counted on to block out wind and light rain.

In addition to protecting you from the elements, the fabric is also stretchy so it moves with you when you're on grueling hikes and climbs. Zip-off legs allow you to convert the Ferrosi into shorts when the sun is bearing down, and different colored zips for each leg ensure you get it right when you need to put them back on. Zippered pockets secure your small essentials, and a brushed tricot-lined waistband provides soft comfort mile after mile.

One pant to rule them all

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 4

For years, I was extremely anti-convertible pant, but when I needed to streamline the clothing I was bringing on a multi-day backpacking trip, the Ferrosi converted me to the convertible life. The nylon fabric is comfy, yet breathable and high-activity approved. But what really sold me is the cut -- they aren't baggy like most of the convertible pants I have tried on, but they flare out enough on the bottom to fit over a variety of boots. I usually rock these when the weather is unpredictable or during spring/fall when you have cooler mornings and warmer days. I wear a 26 in jeans and went with a size 4 for these. I have short legs, so I do have to roll them up a bit to accommodate that.

Amazing Convertible Pants

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

I love these pants! They are comfortable, well-fitted, great for all kinds of activities, weather, etc. The cut-off placement is great. I highly recommend these pants!

Thank you Jimmy! Totally agree. :-)

Comfortable for every use. Hiking, climbing, descending, handing out in camp - they are wonderful.

Thank you Amber! We have this same fabric in a capri, pant, short, skirt, jacket, hat...! Great stuff!

Love these pants

These pants fit great and I love the length of the shorts when legs off because they are longer and don't ride up. Quality snaps on the waist and like that the drawstring is there to to adjust the waist also.

Thank you so much for the great review! Enjoy your Ferrosi Convertibles!

Happy Trails,

excellent technical wear. i was golfing, it was cold, and i had the legs zipped on. 2 hours later it got really sunny and hot. i un-zipped them. perfect shorts, didn't have to take off my slim golf shoes (no spikes). an hour later a cold front came in and i zipped the legs back on. my golf partner and i were laughing. great product.

Love them!!! favorite pants ever!

i needed the zip-off-leg feature but thought i'd suffer with stiff fabric. i was wrong. These convertible pants are the best ever!! i bought 3 pairs, one in each colour. size is perfect, comfort amazing, quality superb.

Do you like the pewter color? I think I'd be happier with a bit darker grey but I don't think I want black. :/

Great summer pant

I live and hike in the Colorado mountains and have been caught in rain, graupel and snow even when there is no precipitation in the forecast. These pants are comfortable and stretch, easily converted to shorts, but give me another layer of protection when weather rolls in unexpectedly.
