The Helly Hansen Converter Zip Off Pants weigh 416g; nylon fabric feels very soft; double stitching in many areas; belt loops; seat pocket; two map-sized hip pockets; two leg pockets. But no lower leg zip; no ankle cuff adjustment; only one leg pocket is map-sized; the zip on the right leg is too short to allow map entry; no stretch fabric.
The Helly Hansen Converter Zip Off Pants are reasonable walking trousers, but they lack finer detailed features.
