The North Face Outbound Pant 2011

The The North Face Outbound Pants weigh 432g (size 38); Tekware fabric is very lightweight, water-resistant, quick-drying; relaxed fit for freedom of movement and style; brushed polyester waistband lining and belt; two map-sized hip pockets plus zipped seat pocket; diamond crotch; knee venting. But no ankle cuff adjustments; free fit may be too free if you prefer a more precise fit; not very warm.
 

The North Face’s Outbound Pants are good summer trousers if you like the fit, but some ankle adjustment needed.
