Comments about North Face The North Face Paramount Convertible Pants for Men - Medium/Regular - Beige:
These pants served me well backpacking through South America and Asia. The pockets held enough to walk the city without a bag or looking like a pack mule. They also held up on the trail, light weight, breathed well and repelled light rain.
The hip pockets and the cargo pockets overlap one another. This makes the pants bulky if you put things in both pockets.
The elastic waistband ain't exactly runway couture.
