Patagonia Rock Guide Zip-Off Pants 2010

The Patagonia Rock Guide Zip-Off Pants weigh 332g; fast-drying nylon; one rear zipped pocket; one zipped thigh pocket; two map-sized hip pockets; diamond crotch; belt loops; can be recycled; two stretch fabric; zip-off-leg zip is comfy. But no ankle cuff adjustment; no calf zip to allow legs to be removed more easily; larger pockets would be useful; high price.

The Patagonia Rock Guide Zip-Off Pants are good, stretchy trousers that can be recycled after use, but features and price could be better.
