100% recommend these pants (or trousers as they'll called outside the US) despite a few shortcomings. First they are the most comfortable item of clothing I've ever worn super lightweight super soft nylon material that is indeed DWR coated. Unlike Terra pants which have ripstop like anti abrasion panels which are rough and uncomfortable against the bare skin these are soft as silk and can be slept in with no discomfort. Planning on using these on a future thru hike and sleeping in them on colder nights. Very quick drying when completely soaked (yes I have tested that) and because of their very light material and regular (or loose) fit the material doesn't cling to the skin. Sizing does appear to be off by one size I'm 30" waist website says small should be perfect but waist band is elasticated and far too tight. Medium perfect for me would recommend sizing up when ordering. Waistband is a super soft material with elastic inside very soft and comfortable even against bare skin. Next up odour control no these aren't coated with polygiene or anything fancy to reduce bacteria/smell but they do happen to be the only pants I could find made from almost 100% nylon. Nylon has a unique property over polyester they don't absorb oils from the skin which is sweat. I have completely soaked these things in sweat over multiple hot nights NO discernible smell. Only real fault I can find with these is no lower leg/side vents for venting heat in hot weather. For trousers apparently suitable for hot weather this is perplexing to me yes you can zip off the lower half but that doesn't beat the convenience off unzipping a vent. I actually hate shorts one benefit of zip off's is when it comes to washing. The DWR will degrade the more it's washed being able to zip off the lower leg which gets dirty than any other part for obvious reasons means I can wash just the lower leg and leave the DWR on the upper part completely intact. The features than these pants do have have been designed thoughtfully for example zips connecting lower and upper leg are covered by an internal flap of material it is not possible to feel the zip when laying down.

Great trousers - ideal for my Mountain Rescue call-outs in the summer. But why no long sizes? Only short and regular. I am keeping my Regular pair as they're great trousers and nobody cares what you look like in that environment. Shame tho'
