I am very happy with these pants. I am a Bear Grylls fan, so that was part of the draw, and I love the two tone design. It is fashionable, and functional too, because the areas that are black, are extra reinforced, to increase durability. They are very light, and quick drying. I have not had them for very long, so I can not speak to long-term durability, but my hunch is that they will hold up well. I use them for hiking and mountain biking on cooler days (with a bike short underneath). They are a great overall outdoor pant, and I think they would be great for any outdoor application (you would need long-underwear on cold days). As far as comfort goes, my only complaint is that the seams, where the two different color fabrics are joined, rub against my skin, causing me discomfort, but most of the time I am not aware of it. Regards sizing, I wish I had gotten the 'long', rather than the 'regular'. This is always a toss up for me, because it depends on the specific pant. Usually 'regular' is just long enough. But in this pant, they are a little short for me. If you are on the borderline, I recommend that you go for the long. Overall, I think these are great pants, and I plan to get another similar pair (different color, and full synthetic v. cotton/synthetic blend).
Got these to do some hiking in, wanted something I could wander around the wilderness in and not have to worry. These are great pants. Good fit and comfortable.
