Durable Water Repellent
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.
The North Face FlashDry
FlashDry enables the user to stay drier and more comfortable in a wide range of weather conditions and environments. It doesn't add weight or bulk and never washes or wears out. FlashDry will accelerate evaporation so you can dry off quicker.

Love em but not at all durable!![This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have two pairs of these pants and use them for hiking and mountaineering. They are great... except they just aren't durable! Both pairs have gotten many holes and rips from brushing up against rock and thick vegetation. Even sitting down on the wrong place on the trail can lead to tears, rips, and holes! So be very careful wearing these if you want them to last.

Amazingly comfortable hiking / casual pantsI'm 6'3" 185 pounds with a lean/athletic build (33" waist, 33" inseam) and these pants fit perfect in 33" Long. The North Face doesn't disappoint with long sizes, they mean it. The pants come down just a bit above the ground when wearing my hiking boots, which is exactly the fit I was looking for. The pants are very stretchy but durable enough to tackle some challenging hikes in the Balkans. It was a slight adjustment not having belt loops and while the internal string does a fine job keeping your pants in place, I wish there were belt loops since I usually like to attach a knife or med kit to my belt. It definitely isn't a deal breaker for me, and I plan on purchasing a couple more pairs of these pants because of the fit and comfort.

Super light and comfortable, not to durablePants are super comfortable. They allow for great movement. Used them to backpack. Super light so great for warm weather. Love the elastic waistband for backpacking and hiking so don't have to wear a belt. Only cons I have we're the back pocket was completely sewed shut. A little knife work and I was able to cut the stitching. And this was like accidentally stitches. It was stiched closed. The other con and more important con is that they aren't to durable. In two days I managed to put several small holes and some piling on the fabric all over. I would say for backpacking pants there 2-3 stars. But for causal hiking I'd give them 4 stars as that's usually on trails where you won't have to bush whack and worry about the fabric holding up.

PantasticI love these pants and would rate them 4.5 for all the above reasons. The color is quite appealing, a kind of medium-grey saturated green. The construction is smart, like the riveted button on the fly, the inner drawstring and the stretch insert along the back around the hip area, which allows the pants to custom fit as comfortably as a tailored pair. I bought a 32 Short but wear 34/30 in all other brands of pants---trust the online size guide (I'm 5'8"/164). The pants weigh nothing and are trim without being tight. They also seem like they'd dry swiftly in a few hours after a washing in a sink. No idea how durable they'll be, but I intend to use these for summer travel, primarily. Hence my one suggested tweak: make the on-seam pocket big enough for a passport or cell phone!

Best Pants EVER!! "PrAna and Kuhl" ... New Sheriff in Town!TNF Paramount Active Pants are so comfortable and fit like a glove. They literally feel like a tailor measured them to you only. I have the Prana and Kuhl equivalent pants and I can honestly say the TNF Paramount feel and fit so much better. I will be ordering all the colors and hope TNF comes up with even more colors than 3. TNF if your listening, this is a "winner" not just for the active lifestyle, but work, casual wear and even just hanging out. Guys don't normally ask about fashion to other guys, but more than once have people asked me what brand pants are those I"m wearing...proof enough!

Great pants but interesting waist bandI've tried alot of pants such as this from different brands that I intend to use for hiking, travel and casual wear. The overall fit, quality and appearance are excellent. Better than any other outdoor brands I've tried, especially at this price point. The only problem is the waist band is elastic and doesn't have belt loops. I like the ability to use belt to tighten. Also makes it so you can't tuck your shirt in without looking like you are wearing yoga pants. Because they don't make a size 28 waist, I had to return. Great pants though.

These have become my favorite[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I planned to return these then one day ripped the tags off and started wearing them. I haven't taken them off since. Actually, i washed them and put them right back on. i'm not joking, sometimes i check to see if i'm wearing pants. they are that lightweight and comfortable. the price and the lifetime are good. i'm 6'1, 185 lbs, i wear a large, because they taper, the length bunches on the tops of my feet.
