Comments about The North Face Paramount Peak II Convertible Pants for Men:
Having already owned Paramount Peak 1 pants in XXL which never quite fit right, this newer models seems to have gotten some of the kinks out. Im 5'10 between 235-265 depending on if im in-season or off-season with training. My pants sizes usually range from 38-41 inches, just on the verge of XL when i'm slimmer so i'll usually just order XXL and have slightly baggy pants when i'm leaner.
The paramount 1's fit everywhere except the thigh/crotch they seemed to pinch when kneeling or climbing The paramount 2's Have improved roominess in the legs and allows me full range of motion in athletic activities. The waist is just a tad loose but easily corrected by cinchinhg the belt. I'm glad i didnt have to get 3XL just to make room for my quads.
the Pocket layout is much better as well the cargos are no on the front of thigh like older model, which chaffes when items are in the pockets and reduces capacity. These pokets are now located at 3 and 9 oclock and have a a nice taper that keep them discreet without an overtly military look.
One suggestion i could make is the front hand pockets should have a vertical drop-taper similar to a pair of dockers/slacks instead of the horizontal squared off design they have now. Makes access easier.
Used on a 5 hour kayak trip they repel moisture well and dry fast even after a dunk. only downside to 100% nylon is they wont hold up well to flames around a camp fire so beware of sparks and embers poking wholes. Otherwise great convertible pants
